Among them, Kim Jong-un (179cm, F), Kim Han-byeol (178cm, F), Kang Iseul (180cm, F), and Kim Jin-young (177cm, F) are selected as the biggest players among FA players.
But besides those players, there are other players to keep an eye on. Go A-ra (179cm, F), who contributed to Woori Bank’s combined victory, Shim Seong-yeong (165cm, G), Kim So-dam (185cm, C), and Choi Hee-jin (180cm, F) of KB are the main characters.
