Choi Hong-seok, a former member of the national team, is dead as the top player in men’s volleyball…He was 35 years old

Choi died on Wednesday. No specific cause of death has been disclosed. The mortuary was set up at Incheon Citizens’ Funeral Hall No. 204 in Soongui-dong, Michuhol-gu, Incheon. The coffin will be sealed at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Choi Hong-seok, who was a 193 centimeter-tall, 84 kilograms-heater outside, was named the first choice overall in the first round of the V League in the 2011-2012 season after playing at Dongsung High School in Busan. Choi Hong-seok, who was noted as a top rookie, set a new record of being the first rookie to triple crown in the match against Sangmu (five rear positions, three serves, and three blocks) on Oct. 30, 2011.

Choi Hong-seok, who won his second triple crown of the season in the match against LIG Insurance on January 9, 2012, ranked 8th (490 points) overall in scoring and 9th (49.18%) in attack success rate, winning the Rookie of the Year.

In the second year, he suffered from an ankle injury, but in the 2013-2014 season when he was acquired by Woori Card, he won the MVP in the second round, and successfully made a comeback in terms of skills development. He also led Woori Card to win the 2015 Kobo Cup in Cheongju, where he won the MVP of the competition.

Choi Hong-seok, who played as a leading striker of Woori Card by achieving his third triple crown in the match against Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance (four rear positions, three serves, and four blocks), has since suffered a slight drop in performance, and was traded to KEPCO after the 2017-2018 season. Choi Hong-seok, who was traded back to OK Financial Group after a year, experienced volleyball in the first spring of the 2020-2021 season and took off his uniform after the 2021-2022 season. 바카라

Choi Hong-seok, who played a total of 3,383 games in 11 seasons in the V-League and played 1,060 sets, recorded a total of 3,383 points, an attack success rate of 47.78 percent, and a receiving efficiency of 33.42 percent. On Jan. 28, 2019, Choi surpassed 3,000 points for the ninth time in men’s history.

He has long been a member of the Korean men’s volleyball team as well as the V-League. Starting with the Asian Men’s Volleyball Championship in 2009 when he was a varsity player, he participated in many competitions including the World League, the AVC Cup, and the Asian Championship until 2017.

After his retirement, Choi was appointed as a commentator for volleyball at SBS Sports in December 2022, holding a microphone and meeting with his fans. However, he disappeared in November last year, and the news of his death was suddenly reported. As he passed away at a young age, the volleyball community and fans are also saddened. When the news of Choi’s death was reported, he paid tribute to the team he had passed by.

Woori Card, who took over Dream Six, Choi’s debut team, mourned, saying, “We pray for the rest of the late Choi Hong-seok who played with us.” KEPCO also left a message, saying, “I will remember Choi Hong-seok who was with KEPCO’s Vixtorm volleyball team.” OK Financial Group, which spent the last day of its career, also paid tribute, saying, “Former OK Financial Group’s Choi Hong-seok has left us. We pray for the rest of our lives.”
