Heungkuk Life Insurance libero Kim Hae-ran (38) overturns retirement and returns and shows amazing performance.
Haeran Kim announced his retirement from active play in April 2020. In order to fulfill his wish to have children, he had to leave the court he played for so long. And she became a mother to one child, as she gave birth to her son, Jo Ha Yul-gun, as she had hoped, in December 2020.
Kim Hae-ran, who seemed to have ended her active career, returned to her court in April 2021 by signing a contract with Heungkuk Life Insurance. Although he has a chronic knee injury, he is firmly guarding the court of Heungkuk Life Insurance in the second season.
In an interview after winning the match against Pepper Savings Bank on the 10th, Kim Hae-ran said, “Actually, after giving birth to a baby last year, her knees 메이저놀이터 got bad because she overworked herself a little. This time, she rehabilitated systematically and worked out, getting into shape without much strain to play,” she said.
Returning to active duty for her after giving birth is not an easy decision. Kim Hae-ran also said, “Honestly, it wasn’t easy to take on the challenge. However, he seems to have had the mind of ‘I want our players to have the idea of taking on a challenge’. Her family also supported and helped her a lot. Everyone supported her, including her mother and her husband,” she said about her reason for returning to the court.
Kim Yeon-kyung, a world-class volleyball star and teammate, looked at Kim Hae-ran and said, “It’s really great. It is really not easy for him to take care of children and do his job faithfully, but he made his comeback in less than a year. She says things like ‘mom power, son power’ and it seems really fitting. I don’t think it’s easy to do this, but it’s great,” she admired.
“Actually, my family is worried about me because I am sick. At first, I supported it, but now I oppose it,” said Kim Hae-ran, who laughed and said, “I do a lot of parenting, but my mother does it. They have suffered a lot.” He expressed his gratitude to his family.
