  • [2013-08-22]


  •  Lee Jee-hoon’s skill and sincerity shone bright in a training with national players at Taenung Athletes’ Village.

     
    The 20th episode of KBS 2TV’s “Kids On the Block” that aired on Aug. 20 featured the art and sports team, who took part in strenuouns training with a group of elite national players.  Their sincere attitude and hard work during the training greatly impressed viewers.
     
     
    The art and sports team's hard work helped raised the program's viewing figures.  It recorded an 8.4% audience share, a 0.9 % point rise in comparison with last week, the highest level ever calculated by the production team.
     
    During the broadcast, Lee Jee-hoon, the only physical education college graduate among the art and sports team members, performed the most brilliantly, proving his true capabilities. Earlier he played best in a match against the Pusan Dugudong team.
     
    From the start of the match, Lee Man-ki and Lee Jee-hoon played hard. Lee Man-ki threw himself around during play even though he was suffering from bruised thigh.  Lee Jee-hoon supported Lee Man-ki by guarding the net area.
     
    Lee Jee-hoon said after the match, “Lee Man-ki helped me greatly.” Lee Man-ki responded, “I worried about Jee-hoon’s performance before the match. But he played well and was a good partner.”
     
     
    Lee Man-ki and Lee Jee-hoon came from behind and defeated the opposing team with good harmony and teamwork, garnering two wins in the badminton matches.
     
    Lee Jee-hoon took part in the running training of the field hockey national team in Taenung Athletes’ Center. He showed enthusiasm for the training, saying, “My dream was to become a soccer player.”
     
     He breathlessly ran and ran during the training. His perseverance and energy deeply impressed the field hockey players and team coach Shin Sok-gyeo.  The coach praised him, raising his thumb and saying “I will scout him.”  
     
    Lee Jee-hoon greeted each player warmly at the end of the training.  He appeared to enjoy running alongside national players and perhaps thought, “There is no obstacle that is impossible to get over.”  
     
    Netizens commented: “I was moved by Lee Jee-hoon’s sincerity during training” “I reflected on myself after seeing Lee Jee-hoon’s attitude”
     
    “Daebak! It was so funny. I was moved to see all immersed themselves in training and sweating so much”.
     
    The Kids On the Block airs 11:20 p.m. on Tuesdays.
