Kim Dong-joon (24, 175.2cm), who was additionally accepted for the position of managing director, sighed in relief.
On the 1st, the Military Manpower Administration notified Dong-Jun Kim of Ulsan Hyundai Mobis of the results of the second round of recruitment for the Armed Forces Sports Special Forces. Kim Dong-joon, Kim Jong-ho (LG), Moon Si-yoon (Day One), Kwak Jung-hoon (KCC), Kim Jun-hwan (KT), Kim Jin-young (Samsung), and Joo Hyun-woo (KGC) competed for a spot, but Kim Dong-jun was selected as the final passer. Kim Dong-joon, who had a hard time in the first recruitment last September, passed the additional recruitment and was able to serve in the military at Sangmu.
In a phone call with his headquarters, Kim Dong-jun said, “It feels good to be in such an honored position. Isn’t he the case where the managing director picks him up twice? I was really lucky. When I was preparing for the fitness test, the coach, coaches, and trainer hyungs helped me a lot. Thanks to that, his record came out better than in the first round of recruitment,” he said of his acceptance feelings.
Currently, Sangmu has national team guards such as Heo Hoon and Kim Nak-hyun. Recently, Byun Jun-hyeong also enlisted and is undergoing basic military training at the training center. As all of them have outstanding skills, it seems to be an opportunity for Kim Dong-jun to learn.
“I’m just happy to have such good brothers on the team. They are hyungs who have a lot to learn without missing anything. I will learn as much as possible during the time we are together so that I can come back.” These are the words of Dongjun Kim.
Sangmu has plenty of time to focus on personal training. Therefore, if you put in effort, you can make up for what you usually lack. The points of improvement Kim Dong-jun picked were weight training and defense.스포츠토토
“I plan to focus on weight training. One-on-one defense also needs to be supplemented. Since my height is small, mismatches often occur. I want to learn about post-up defense and tips.”
On July 3rd, Kim Dong-joon will enter the Nonsan Training Center along with Jeon Hyeon-woo (Gas Corporation). The expected discharge date is January 2, 2025. He can return midway through the 2024-2025 season if he completes player registration.
Kim Dong-jun said, “There is no guarantee of passing Sangmu, so I have been steadily working out. For the rest of the month, he intends to continue weight training. And since I won’t be able to see my family, I’ll try to spend time with them,” he said of his plans for the rest of his time.
