Hwang Dae-heon, in response to Lim Hyo-jun’s question, “Are you Lin Shao-jun?…I just focus on my game”
Hwang Dae-heon (24, Gangwon Provincial Office), who was active as a Korean short track male signboard star until the 2021-2022 season, appeared in public after a long time and opened his mouth.
In particular, Hwang Dae-heon indirectly answered a sensitive question asking about his thoughts on Lim Hyo-joon (27, Chinese name Lin Xiaojun), a senior national representative in the past, who eventually became naturalized in China because of his ‘bad relationship’.
He asked back, “Are you talking about Lin Xiaojun?” and then said, “They are all players representing their respective countries. I focus on my game rather than focusing on a specific player. When I stand on the start line, I always do my best.”
In mid-June 2019, Hwang Dae-heon experienced a situation where he felt sexually ashamed of Lim Hyo-joon’s prank during the Korean short track team’s training at the Jincheon National Training Center. Then, he reported this situation and Lim Hyo-jun was expelled from the national team, and after twists and turns, he was 토토사이트naturalized in China to compete in international competitions such as the 2020 Olympics.
The Korea Ice Skating Federation held a public relations ambassador appointment ceremony for the ‘2023 International Skating Union (ISU) World Short Track Championships’ held at the Genesis BBQ Group International Conference Room in Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 9th, and appointed Hwang Dae-heon, who is resting this season, as a public relations ambassador.
The World Short Track Championships will be held at the ice rink in Mok-dong, Seoul from March 10 to 12. About 260 players from 35 countries around the world will participate.
Hwang Dae-heon won the men’s 1500m gold medal and the men’s 5000m relay silver medal at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics in February last year. After that, he did not participate in the national team selection for the 2022-2023 season due to poor condition and injury treatment. Because of this, he cannot participate in the World Championships wearing the Taegeuk mark.
Hwang Dae-heon, who will run as a public relations ambassador instead of running on the ice at the upcoming world championship, said, “I feel very honored. He showed enthusiasm, saying, “I will inform the public of the competition as much as possible through broadcasting and social media.”
Regarding his future player activities, Hwang Dae-heon said, “I am improving my body little by little. We are in the process of making it well so that we can show a good image in good condition in the upcoming national team selection match,” he explained.
In the meantime, he has been doing new things such as appearing in variety shows and receiving treatment for back injuries. At the same time, I feel that the position of the national team is more precious. He showed a strong attachment to the Taegeuk mark.
If Hwang Dae-heon wears the Taegeuk mark again in the 2023-2024 national team selection match, the confrontation with Lin Xiaojun wearing the five-star red flag on the World Cup stage next season is expected to spark.
