Lee’s mother, Im Ok, remembered Kim Yeon-kyung, a longtime player in the top women’s volleyball league, Turkkiye, and cautiously asked the youth national team coach, “Can Kim give me some advice?”
“When I reached out to her, I didn’t expect her to answer because I knew she was an active player and was busy with her own work, so I was just really grasping at straws and asked the coach, ‘Can I ask her for some advice,'” Im recalls. 먹튀검증
Kim responded immediately. She put her agent, IM Consulting CEO Lim Geun-hyeok, in touch with Lee’s parents to provide “practical help” to the athlete.
Mr. Lim told them about overseas leagues such as the European League, but since this was the first time he had interacted with the Italian agent who had contacted him, he first verified his identity.
After confirming his identity, she contacted the Italian agent and explained the terms of the deal to him and his parents in detail.
Ms. Im was grateful for the help and wanted to compensate for some of the ‘agent’s fee’, but Mr. Lim politely declined, saying, “I’m just happy that a promising Korean volleyball player has a chance to play in a new stage.”
“For our family, Mr. Lim and Ms. Kim are very gracious, and they don’t accept even the smallest gifts,” said Ms. Im. “I don’t think my son Woo Jin-i made it to Italy on his own.
I hope he will grow into a good player who can repay Mr. Lim and Ms. Kim.”
On the 15th, Lee Woo-jin boarded a plane to join Vero Valle Monza in the Italian First Division.
