Byun Junhyung’s words became a snowball and became a gift from the fans.
Before the second leg of the championship match between Anyang KGC and Seoul SK held at Anyang Gymnasium on the 27th, the front of the stadium was full of fans. This is because Byun Jun-hyung, Yang Hee-jong, Oh Se-geun, Moon Seong-gon, Park Ji-hoon, and Cho Eun-hoo prepared special gifts for their advancing to the championship match. Fans lined up side by side, waiting for the coffee truck to start at 5:00.
Byun Jun-hyeong, who won the 2nd round MVP, prepared a coffee truck for fans ahead of the 5th round match against Seoul Samsung on February 4th. The words that Byun Jun-hyung said that day became the beginning of the 3,000 cup gift. Byun Jun-hyung declared on the club’s YouTube at the time that he would prepare a bigger gift with his teammates if he advanced to the championship match.
Byun Jun-hyung said, “When I won the second round MVP, I prepared a coffee truck for the fans. He was liked by his fans, so he thought it would be nice to present it on a larger scale. He has limitations as an individual, so we all gathered our strength. It seems that his brothers were also willing to do it. He laughed, saying, “I spoke to the club’s YouTube first, so I couldn’t help it.”The coffee truck started at 5:00, but fans lined up from 4:00. In addition to coffee, there was also a draw event where 20 people were presented with autographed tumblers.
Lee Ji-hyeon (26) said, “I arrived a little after 4:00, but there were about 20 people in front of me. I think the players know very well that there are fans who support them. Thank you for trying to give back the support you received. A lot of fans came, so I hope we win.” 크크크벳
Shin Kwang-hee (46), who won the autographed tumbler, said, “Maybe because I won the autographed tumbler, the Americano is exceptionally sweet (laughs). April 27 of last year was the day we beat Suwon KT in the semi-final playoffs and confirmed the championship match. It’s a good day, so I think I’ll definitely win the second match. I will drink coffee and cheer hard. I hope you will work hard and fight.”
Thanks to the support of the fans, KGC won 81-67, putting the series at square one.
