“If you come to Goyang, you may cry.” 11 years of One Clubman → Han Ho-bin’s greeting to start anew with a trade

May 29, 2024 | by

Han Ho-bin’s future has been decided to go to Hyundai Mobis.

The Goyang Sono Sky Gunners said on the 28th, “We will sign a contract with FA Han Ho-bin for a total of 150 million won (including 30 million won in incentives) for a one-year remuneration and then trade to Ulsan Hyundai Mobis Pivers.”

The destination of Han Ho-bin, who was the biggest concern at the end of the FA market, has been decided to be Hyundai Mobis. Han Ho-bin, who recorded 7.2 points and 3.7 assists last season, is a player who has strengths in passes and 2-2 games and can score important points in the place of victory.

In terms of skills and performance, it is hard to predict that a player as good as Han Ho-bin will remain in the FA market until the last day of the FA season. He is a player who can be expected to play at least a role beyond rotation resources no matter which team he goes to among the 10 teams.

The problem was that if he is hired, he will be given up to 600 million won in compensation or 150 million won in compensation and one player to the original club. As a result, Han Ho-bin, who has not been easily identified as his future course, will be wearing Hyundai Mobis uniform through sign-and-trade amid consideration from Sono’s club. It is a one-year contract period and 150 million won in total compensation.
Han Ho-bin, who participated in a phone interview on the afternoon of the 28th, first of all, said, “The trade took place on the last day, but I would like to thank the officials of the Sono team for their consideration and help. I also want to thank the officials of the Hyundai Mobis team.” 안전놀이터

“Every day was very difficult and I had a lot of emotion that I couldn’t explain in words. It was very frustrating and I had a lot of heartache. Still, it is something I have to accept in the end. I will try to show a lot of good performances because the future is important,” he said, looking back on the FA period.

Thanks to the transfer, Han Ho-bin, who has continued his career as a one-club man for 11 years since being drafted by Goyang Orions in the 2013 rookie draft, will change his uniform for the first time since his debut. He has experienced many things including winning the championship, selling the team, facing disbandment after the issue of overdue wages, and founding Sono.

“The first club I joined was the Goyang team, and I continued my professional career here, but I suddenly moved. It was hectic, but I still had a lot of memories. It was so good that I felt like I was in my second hometown while here, and I’m sad to say goodbye, but I’m only going to take good memories,” Han said.

Asked how he would feel if he came to Goyang, he replied, “I think it would feel strange. I have a lot of emotional ups and downs, so I have a lot of sensitivity, but I might cry.” (Laughs) “I think I’ll know once I come here, but I still can’t believe I’m leaving Goyang.”

Now he is a different team from Kim, who shared joys and sorrows with other players for a long time since his time with Orion. Kim, who recently retired from active duty, will start anew as coach Sono.

Han Ho-bin said, “We talked a lot because (Kim) Kang-sun has been with me for a long time and we have been together in a team in Goyang. I was out of my mind, so Kang-sun looked at me a lot.” (Laughs) I didn’t tell him everything, but now when I have some free time, I think I should meet Kang-sun again and have more honest conversations,” he said with a smile.

In addition to Han Ho-bin, Hyundai Mobis is a team with many prominent competitors in the same position, including Seo Myung-jin, Miguel Ok-zon, Park Moo-bin and Kim Ji-wan. Han Ho-bin, who signed a one-year contract, plans to play in the offseason with a stronger mind through unexpected trials.

“A professional has to compete, of course. All I can do there is to do my best. I think I have to be sincere and learn from my young friends while competing,” Han said.

In addition, he said, “There are some things that motivate me a lot in that it’s a one-year contract. After going through a lot of trials this time, I feel like I’m getting my mind firmly, and I think I’ll have to try to be mentally strong.”

Although it is the first transfer since his debut, Hyundai Mobis has players who were colleagues in Goyang, which is expected to help him adjust.

“I don’t think I’ll have any major problems getting used to it. Anyway, harmony with the players is important, so I’m going to meet them and have a lot of conversations,” he said.

Finally, Han Ho-bin said, “I’ve been in Goyang for more than 10 years, and I’ve experienced a lot of joy, joy, sorrow, and pleasure with my fans. I won the championship and came in the bottom, and I was so grateful for your consistent support every time.” I’m not good at expressing it in words, but I’ll always keep it in my heart, so I ask for your support so that I can show a good side of myself,” before sending a message to the fans of Hyundai Mobis to greet them.
