Choi Hee-jin said, “I don’t know what to say (laughs). I played a lot of games at KB Stars, won runner-up, and won the championship by running on my own feet. So I thought there was no free time. There are some regrets, but I didn’t have the heart to go to another team and work passionately just because I was a free agent. He explained the reason for his retirement, saying, “I thought it wouldn’t be bad to decorate the end in a team where I put my body and worked hard.”When asked if he had a lot of worries in making the decision to retire, Choi Hee-jin said, “It didn’t take long. she thought adamantly. There are many young friends, so I don’t think there will be many days to play in the future. I think it would be better to stop now than to spend a year or two like that. There was no club as good as KB Stars. I really wanted to finish here because I received a lot of care.”
