Jeong Ho-young, who played as an outside hitter in his school days, showed off as an outside hitter or apogee spiker after he joined the pro, but there were considerable points of improvement, such as receiving and connecting. He eventually switched to a middle blocker position. Considering the importance of middle blockers in modern volleyball along with physical conditions, it was a natural step.
Ho-young Jeong has grown little by little, but suffered a knee injury in his first game of the 2020-2021 season and was out for the season. It was an ordeal. The 2021-2022 season, which was greeted after surgery and rehabilitation, was a season that officially announced the start of middle blocker Jeong Ho-young. He posted 152 points in 28 games.
Amidst this performance, Jeong Ho-young was selected for the national team again in 2018, when he was in his second year of high school. He was selected as the middle blocker for the next-generation national team in the absence of key players in the semifinals of the Tokyo Olympics, such as Yang Hyo-jin (Hyundai E&C) and Kim Su-ji (IBK Industrial Bank).
However, after finishing the 2022 FIVB (International Volleyball Federation) VNL 2nd week game, Jung Ho-young suffered an ankle injury during the Polish field training ahead of the 3rd week and started rehabilitation again.
In the process of overcoming his second ordeal, Jung Ho-young laid the foundation for greater growth. His desire to improve and improve his skills began to intertwine like weft and warp.
In the 2022-2023 season, Jung Ho-young grew up as an axis of KGC Ginseng Corporation’s middle blocker. He is now in the middle of the 5th round, scoring a career high by posting 270 points in 28 games.

The clutch time blocking and offensive power shown in the game against GS Caltex on the 12th was tremendous destructive power. In front of coach César of the women’s volleyball team, who watched the match on the spot, Jeong Ho-young clearly took her eye print.
Jeong Ho-young said, “I am training hard. I also do image training. I feel that I have improved in terms of blocking compared to last season. In the past, when I tried blocking, I felt that the ball hit my hand, but now I am learning the timing and course of jumping. I am preparing and working on blocking.” It meant getting to know the flow of the game and taking action.
Next, Ho-young Jeong emphasized that he was reviewing the training and game situation, saying, “I write down the parts I must not do before going to sleep in purple, and the parts I must keep in line with the team situation in blue.”
Being tall is a strong point for Jung Ho-young. He was aware of that too. Jeong Ho-young added, “It is advantageous because I do not have to jump when dealing with a passing ball. I think it is an advantage to be able to deal with a jump or endurance even in the case of a setter’s toss miss.”
Jung Ho-young was satisfied with his national team life. It is because he can grow and play on a bigger stage. In 2023, after the end of the V-League, international competitions will continue sequentially.
Jeong Ho-young said, “It’s an honor to be selected as a national representative. There’s a lot to learn.”
First of all, the rest of the season is important. KGC Ginseng Corporation is currently ranked 4th. If Jung Ho-young’s performance is put forward, he can continue his spring volleyball hopes.
Jeong Ho-young said, “I personally found the road construction the most difficult after facing six clubs. It wasn’t a burden on height, but the middle blockers are seasoned and the defense is good. is,” he said.
Jung Ho-young is currently in the process of raising his experience. At the same time, he is in the process of mixing his strengths and complements. A player’s play is a combination of innate and acquired parts. He must be one with the physical part and the mental part as well.
Jung Ho-young has good conditions in many ways. No one yet knows where his play will peak.
The era of Jung Ho-young, who is gradually becoming clearer in the V-League, must be a catalyst to improve the skills of our league and our national team.
