Park Ji-hyun (Woori Bank), who was named the player with the most votes in this season’s Women’s Professional Basketball All-Star fan vote, said this ahead of the All-Star Game held at the Yi Sun-sin Gymnasium in Asan, South Chungcheong Province on the 7th, saying, “Coach Wi Seong-woo (Woori Bank) told me, ‘Don’t make a show. ‘Didn’t you say that before? But today I will show you how to put on a show.” During the second round of the championship match between Woori Bank and BNK in March last year, Coach Wi ordered Park Ji-hyun to play calmly, saying, “Don’t put on a show,” and this scene became a hot topic after being caught on TV.
When the All-Star Game began, it did not take long for Ji-Hyun Park to fulfill her ‘promise to provoke’. On this day, the All-Star Game was held as a match between ‘Pink Star’, led by Park Ji-hyun, and ‘Blue Star’, captained by Shin Ji-hyun (Hana One Q), who placed second in the All-Star fan vote. From the first quarter, when Pink Star was ahead 17-12, Coach Wi was brought in as a replacement member for Blue Star, and a one-on-one matchup with Park Ji-hyun was achieved. Ji-Hyun Park defended Coach Wi closely, stole the ball, and even succeeded in a layup shot, then held a joyous celebration. Kim Dan-bi (Woori Bank), who was on the bench, shared her joy with Park Ji-hyun, teasing her by saying, “Director Wi is a hole in Blue Star.”
The matchup between the command towers also attracted attention. During the third quarter, Hana One Q coach Kim Do-wan and Samsung Life Insurance coach Lim Geun-bae entered the court together as replacement members for Blue Star and Pink Star, respectively. Coach Lim, who made the crowd laugh in his tight-fitting uniform, lifted the mood by dodging Coach Kim’s defense and scoring a three-point shot. The game ended with Pink Star winning 90-88.
