“I didn’t want to miss the last chance of my .”안전놀이터
Lee Dae-sung, one of the most sought-after guards in this year’s KBL free agency, announced early on that he was going overseas instead of staying in Korea. Everyone nodded in agreement because he was always up for a new challenge.
Lee signed an agreement with Daegu Korea Gas Corporation to remain as an unsigned player and go overseas. He is currently in the process of preparing to enter the NBL (Australian Professional Basketball League) and the B.League (Japanese Professional Basketball League).

One might ask the question, “Why? Lee Dae-sung is already a proven player in the KBL. He is one of the best scorers in Korea and can do his job no matter which team he goes to.
However, Lee Dae-sung was different. In an interview with a reporter, he said, “I will slowly observe the situation and make the best choice and produce the best results. I have a strong belief in myself that I can do that,” he said. At the time, there was no mention of going overseas, but in the end, the “best choice” in his words was a challenge.
On the afternoon of the 23rd, Lee shared his sincerity on his SNS. He wrote about why he chose to go overseas and asked for support.
Here is the full text of his post on social media.
As you may have heard in the news, I have decided to challenge overseas leagues in the upcoming season. There are still many things I haven’t accomplished in the KBL, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to challenge myself for the last time in my life.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Daegu KOGAS for supporting and caring about my new challenge.
Last but not least, the fans of KOGAS who showed me so much love during the short period of time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will never forget my gratitude for the rest of my life.
Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged me so far, and I look forward to your continued support!
