Chung Dae-young returned to her hometown team after nine years.

She is already very happy with the new facilities.

“I think it’s really 100 times better than it was then.”

There’s a 22-year age gap between him and many of his juniors.

“I just call her sister, because I’m glad she doesn’t call me mom.”

They’re much closer now.

[Eunji Choi/GS Caltex]
“Don’t you know there’s such a thing as sister ?”

[Jung Dae-young/GS Caltex]
“No, I don’t have to call you that, why do you keep asking me to?”

[Jung Dae-young/GS Caltex]
“You know I loved you so much and waited for you~ What are you so busy with~ It’s so hard to see~ What are you doing~ It’s so hot!” 메이저사이트

Still trying to get along with the club’s mascot, Kicks.

“Throw it, let’s go, let’s go, oh he went there!”

The only inconvenience is that we’re in the middle of nowhere, so there’s no food delivery.

[Eunji Choi/GS Caltex]
“My sister came first, but she had the delivery app on, so I said, ‘Sis, put it down as useless, it’s not coming (delivery).'”

[Dae-Young Jung/GS Caltex]
“I said, ‘It’s here, why isn’t it coming?’ She said, ‘Eun-yeo, if you order, call me to cancel.'”

From playing every game last season to winning a miraculous upset.

With a salary that has nearly doubled, time is literally going backwards for 43-year-old Jung.

[Eunji Choi/GS Caltex]
“If you’re going to do this, do it until you’re 50.”

[Dae-Young Jung/GS Caltex]
“I don’t think I’ll be able to walk around by the time I’m 50, so I think I’ll be a bit of a poisonous sister, a scary sister, when I train.”

She hopes to provide support to her middle school daughter, who is also pursuing a career in volleyball.

[Dae-Young Jung/GS Caltex]
“I don’t say it out loud, but I think there was a lot of pressure on me, and when I told her, ‘My mom is Jung Dae-young,’ she said, ‘You’re living your life, and I’m living my mom’s life, so I don’t want you to feel that pressure.'”
