바카라KBS commentator Lee Young-pyo, who is half empathic and half cold-hearted, showing a ‘sweet and salty commentary’, still showed his hunger even when the score was ‘4-0’, saying, “It’s a good score, but I wish we could score one more goal if possible.”
On the 21st, Commissioner Lee Young-pyo, together with caster Nam Hyun-jong, broadcast live the second match against Thailand in the men’s soccer Group E group stage in Korea’s Hangzhou Asian Games.
This broadcast was also carried out locally among domestic broadcasters, and ‘Ace’ Lee Kang-in, who joined Hwang Seon-hong before the game that day, was also captured on site.
Even after the 9-0 victory over Kuwait in the first game, Commissioner Lee Young-pyo remained cautious throughout. He said, “If we win today, we will secure first place in the group regardless of the result of the third game, but there are many cases where we have had difficulties in the next game after a big win. “Consistent play is more important than ever,” he emphasized before the game.
On this day’s broadcast, Lee Kang-in, who arrived in Hangzhou, was captured answering “It’s a secret” when asked about his condition, and watching his teammates play. Commissioner Lee Young-pyo said, “If a crisis arises in a tournament, it can never be resolved with one or two players. Ultimately, Lee Kang-in’s role is needed in the matches against Uzbekistan, Saudi Arabia, Japan, etc. that we will face in the tournament rather than in the group stage.” We also predicted Lee Kang-in’s performance during the tournament.
Commissioner Lee Young-pyo conveyed the air in Hangzhou, where the temperature had dropped slightly, saying, “It rained for about 2-3 days, making the weather better for the players to play than two days ago.”
With the game going in Korea’s favor, Commissioner Lee Young-pyo praised the team, saying, “The attack pattern is quite good.” Immediately after that, Hong Hyun-seok’s first goal was scored in the 15th minute of the first half, and Commissioner Lee Young-pyo explained, “No matter how many defenses there are, if you get quick timing from the side, you can destroy the opponent.”
Ahn Jae-jun’s additional goal in the 20th minute of the first half was also “a joint play between Park Jae-yong and Ahn Jae-jun, who did not give up the ball even after a physical struggle. “Thailand tried not to give us back space, but they gave it to us knowingly,” he said, earning praise from member Lee Young-pyo.
However, Commissioner Lee Young-pyo, who cheered at the goal scene, said to the players who were somewhat distracted in the early part of the second half, “In the second half, they seemed to be losing focus a little,” and added, “Even though 13 goals were scored in the first and second games, coach Hwang Seon-hong never smiled.” He continued to call for ‘consistent concentration.’ And when Thailand’s goal was no longer open after four goals, he said, “4-0 is a good score, but in my heart, I wish we could score one more goal,” showing the appearance of a ‘still hungry’ matchmaker.
Korea, which won 4-0 in the second game against Thailand, confirmed first place in Group E regardless of the result of the third game against Bahrain. Commissioner Lee Young-pyo will also broadcast live on the 24th from 7:50 PM on KBS 2TV for the final match against Bahrain in the group stage.
