‘My Favorite Song Appeared at the Retirement Ceremony’ Kang Seung-yoon of WINNER attended Yang Hee-jong’s retirement ceremony as a surprise guest

A special guest appeared at Yang Hee-jong’s retirement ceremony. 

On the 26th, at the Anyang Gymnasium, the 6th round of the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball 6th round between Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation and Wonju DB Promy was held. 

At the halftime of the match, KGC legend Yang Hee-jong’s retirement ceremony and permanent breeding ceremony were held. Many basketball fans came to the stadium to join Yang Hee-jong’s retirement ceremony even though it was a Sunday evening game.

As it was a retirement ceremony for a legend who had accompanied the club for a long time, KGC put a lot of effort into it. To commemorate Yang Hee-jong’s number 11, a specially made shooting shirt was presented to the first 1,111 people, and in the game, KGC players wore Captain’s Day uniforms designed with the ‘Last Defense’ concept and walked on the court.

Among the games, many events were held to commemorate Yang Hee-jong’s retirement. In addition, KGC sought cooperation from KBL, relay broadcasting company SPOTV, and DB, the opposing team, to extend the halftime time to 20 minutes, and the retirement ceremony and permanent breeding ceremony were held.  

In the midst of the retirement ceremony, which was supported by many people, even a special guest appeared. Singer Kang Seung-yoon from the group ‘WINNER’ held a concert to celebrate his retirement.

Kang Seung-yoon applauded Yang Hee-jong’s retirement by singing the song ‘Captain’, which he wrote and composed himself. The announcer in the hall introduced ‘Captain’ as Yang Hee-jong’s favorite song. 

Yang Hee-jong, who received a surprise gift from the club, expressed his gratitude to Kang Seung-yoon by asking for a handshake first. He also had tears in his eyes as he watched the salute ceremony held by the team and Kang Seung-yoon.  안전놀이터

It is said that Kang Seung-yoon had experience attending basketball game celebrations in the past, but he was not directly acquainted with Yang Hee-jong. However, he liked the purpose of the event, so he readily agreed to the invitation.

A KGC official explained, “Kang Seung-yoon’s appearance was a surprise event that was planned privately without the knowledge of Yang Hee-jong himself.

Amidst the appearance of special guests, the retirement ceremony for Yang Hee-jong, the heart of Anyang, was held in great success. The retirement ceremony is over, but Yang Hee-jong plans to digest as a member of KGC until the playoff schedule.
