Lee Gwan Hee, a former player for the Phoenix Fuel Masters, was happy to be back in the country as well, “I think both our PBA and KBL (experience) made it possible to level up in our playing field.”
In a meet and greet event at The Arena at Kerry Sports, BGC, LG Philippines Managing Director, Mr. Sungjae Kim and LG Philippines Product Director Changsoo Jang met with the team and gave the players LG Puricare Wearable Air Purifiers to use while they’re in the country.
