Coach Lee participated in the Media Day held at The-K Hotel in Yangjae-dong, Seoul at 2:00 pm on the 20th and said, “The best player prepared well during winter training. But he suffered a major injury a week ago.” I came out wearing a uniform because I thought it would be more comforting to show it like this than words.”
