KOGAS Acting Supervisor Kang Hyuk Basketball has changed with defense and speed

‘A prestigious club that breathes with fans in celebration of its 40th anniversary’

KOGAS Corporation

Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, a professional basketball team

in its third season after the team was founded, is eager to make another leap forward in the 2023-2024 season.

Korea Gas Corporation, which founded a professional basketball team two years ago,

advanced to the playoffs in 6th place in the regular league in the 2021-2022 season,

which was the first season, and was also mentioned as a candidate

for the championship ahead of the opening of the 2022-2023 season, but was sluggish in 9th place.

2023-2024 Season

Ahead of the 2023-2024 season, Korea Gas Corporation has left Lee Dae-seong and Jeong Hyo-geun,

who were the main players of the team until last season, to the Japanese league and Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation,

Respectively, and there is no power reinforcement to do so, so there are concerns that they are weak.

In addition, acting head coach Kang Hyuk, who was the coach until last season, took over the baton and led the team. 온라인카지노

This year is also the season when the basketball team, which finished in 9th place last season,

needs to leap forward again, but it is also a meaningful year for Korea Gas Corporation, the parent company, to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

KOGAS is determined to make it the first year to establish itself as a prestigious team by breathing together with fans as well as grades.

On the 15th and 16th, they are busy preparing to greet the fans after the season starts,

such as playing an open practice game with the national team at the Daegu Gymnasium, which is the home court.

Kim Byung-sik

Director Kim Byung-sik of Korea Gas Corporation said, “The owner (CEO Choi Yeon-hye) also emphasized the operation of the club with the fans’ eyes as the top priority, saying,

‘The fans are the purpose of running the basketball team, as a public corporation, it is a part of the people.”

We paid more attention to fan service, such as strengthening security and safety measures for improvement and citizen safety management.”

Director Kim added, “We are planning various events to greet he New Year with fans by attracting ‘Basketball Youngshin‘,

which starts at 10:00 pm on December 31st, to be with the fans who have shared their joys and sorrows.”

KOGAS also plans to carry out active social contribution activities in the future, such as donating 30 million won for the vulnerable in Daegu, its hometown, in April.

In fact, the best fan service in a professional team is, of course, ‘grades’.

Kang Hyuk

Acting head coach Kang Hyuk, who took the new baton, was called the ‘2-to-2 master’

during his active career and was evaluated as the best shooting guard, and was in charge of one axis of the Seoul Samsung ‘Guard Kingdom’.

After retiring from Incheon Electroland, the predecessor of the Korea Gas Corporation basketball team, in 2013, he started his leadership career at his alma mater,

Samil Commercial High School, moved to Changwon LG in 2017 to become a professional coach.

Acting coach Kang, whose age (born in 1976) is unbelievable, but has already been a leader for more than 10 years, said in an interview with Yonhap News on the 15th,

“I also listened to the evaluations around me and said that our team is the weakest among the 10 clubs.”

All the players are motivated because they think it’s a good opportunity to get playing time.”


While there are clubs (KCC and SK) that exceed the upper limit of 2.8 billion won in annual salary,

Korea Gas Corporation exhausted only 69.2%, so it is true that the composition of the team itself is rather weak.

Korea Gas Corporation is the only team out of 10 teams whose annual salary does not exceed 2 billion won.

However, acting coach Kang said, “From captain Cha Ba-wi, an atmosphere was created where I came out without having to speak separately, I also promised the players,

‘If you work hard, I will definitely give you a chance’.”

I will show myself,” he said.

As the players prepare for the season with enthusiasm to seize the opportunity to participate, it is expected that the team’s power will come out beyond individual skills.

Acting coach Kang said, “The club pays a lot of attention,

the players are preparing for the season with vigor in anticipation of the lower ranks.”

I will do my best,” he promised.

In the third year of its founding, we will leap forward to stand shoulder to shoulder with baseball and soccer in Daegu.”
