  • Could you please explain how this draft works? I've seen the video, but do not understand everything.
    And what are 'training players'? Are these players allowed to play in the league?

  • About the draft, KOVO has been doing this every year for those who want to turn professional players. I just don't know if they have an age limit for this but the draftees are in college and high school.
    Those who have been picked already signed a contract for their respective teams.
    The training players are more likely "under observation"(?) or maybe similar to internship. I could be wrong though.
    Please do remember that I don't fully understand Korean. I can just read and write but can't translate.


    About the 2nd round where Hyundai got to pick 3 times, it's because they traded players to Korean Air and Woori Card. And both teams gave their 2nd round pick to Hyundai.

  • In regards to the order of the draft picks for Round 1:


    The 4th pick goes to Samsung (4th), 5th pick to KEPCO (3rd), 6th pick to Korean Air (Runner-up), and the 7th pick is given to Hyundai (Winner).


    The three bottom placed teams from last season OK Savings Bank (7th), KB Insurance (6th), and Woori Card (5th) have a lottery draw to decide who gets the 1st, 2nd and 3rd pick.


    The lower the placing the more balls they are assigned. In this case, OK Saving is given 50 balls (#1-50), KB Insurance is given 35 balls (#51-85) and Woori Card is given 15 balls (#86-100). Around 1:21-1:24 in the video you can see a small board in the background with these numbers.


    Woori Card got very lucky with ball #95 getting drawn 1st so they got 1st pick. The 2nd ball drawn was #33 so the 2nd pick is given to OK Savings Bank and hence KB Insurance gets the 3rd pick. Round 2 and 4 picks are in the reverse order of the Round 1, whilst the other rounds are in the same order as Round 1.

  • Does anyone know what is going on with the foreign players at Hyundai Skywalkers? I see rumors that (OH) Andreas Fragkos has been transferred, does that mean Baroti suffered a serious injury?

    I've found an article about this and Google Translate says Baroti's right ankle ligament was partially injured, including a partial rupture. I haven't seen an article whether they will replace him or not.
