Han Chae-jin is a veteran among veterans who faced disgrace this year at her Korean age.

Han Chae-jin, who graduated from Seongdeok Women’s Award, wore a Hyundai Hyperion uniform in the 5th place in the 1st round at the 2003 WKBL Freshman Selection. She is in her 21st year as a professional this year.

She is an unrivaled veteran with few male players her age.

Han Chae-jin, who has stood on her retirement record several times in the past, is spending the end of her active career wearing a Shinhan Bank uniform as a free agent (FA) after the 2019-2020 season.

Han Chae-jin, who has steel stamina, is sweating with the thought that “this season is always the last”. From the 2009-2010 season to the last season, he recorded an average playing time of more than 30 minutes for 13 consecutive seasons.

His skills are still the same, and last season he ranked first in the overall steel category (average 1.6). This season, he played in 18 games, averaging 25 minutes and 24 seconds, averaging 3.6 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.3 steals.

He also set an example for his juniors as he won the Best Player Award three times.
