LPBA Cha Yu-ram appointed as professional billiards ambassador

The fact that Cha Yu-ram (36), a star player representing the Korean women’s professional billiards LPBA, joined the People Power Party in May 2022 was news that hit the Korean billiards world. Cha Yu-ram, who was active on the amateur pocketball stage and enjoyed popularity as a ‘billiard fairy’, but also displayed top skills on the 3-cushion stage, took down the cue, saying, “I want to raise the voice of cultural and sports people suffering from the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19).”Almost two years later, he decided to come back. Cha Yoo-ram said in a phone interview with Yonhap News on the 31st, “I really had no thoughts about returning last year, but I think I had some regrets or regrets.” He continued, “I kept wriggling in my desire to have fun playing against strong players. When I was a player, I “I decided to return because I felt like I was the happiest and most myself,” he explained his background.

Cha Yu-ram, who said that she rarely caught a cue during the two years she worked as a politician, honestly said, “Actually, it’s polite to practice more before coming out “Cha Yu-ram’s return stage will be the Welcome Savings Bank PBA-LPBA Championship, which will be held at the KINTEX PBA Stadium in Ilsan starting on the 4th of next month .Since they did not participate in the last two seasons’ competitions, they do not have ranking points, so they must start from the PPQ round (1st qualifying round). Cha Yu-ram, who had just taken the cue again, said, “I wanted to return after at least regaining my old skills. However, after discussing with the organizers, I decided to say hello this time. “In fact, the most natural picture is for him to return in June of this year when the new season begins .There are only two individual tours (excluding the World Championship) left in the 2023-2024 season, and realistically, time is needed to recover skills. However, Cha Yu-ram said, “I didn’t want to be misunderstood. I don’t want people to say that I came out because my position in politics became ambiguous.” He was concerned that there would be a lot of backlash if he announced his return to active duty after the 22nd National Assembly election held on April 10.

Cha Yu-ram said, “I am returning because I felt that my original place was as a billiards player. I don’t think I will go back (to politics). As a citizen, I can have opinions, but I will not express them in official settings.” He said clearly .It’s not that the nearly two years I spent working in politics had no meaning. Cha Yu-ram expressed concern, saying, “I worked hard to eradicate drugs. It had deeply infiltrated our country, and I learned that it was a very serious problem. I was worried about the future of our children. “Even if he returns as a professional billiards player, he will continue his activities as a public relations ambassador related to the eradication of drugs, and he expressed his intention to maintain his position as a non-executive director of the Korea Sports Promotion Foundation, which he assumed at the end of last year .Cha Yu-ram, who said he had been watching professional billiards games regularly while working as a politician, mentioned several players he would like to join and brought up the name of rookie Han Ji-eun (SY).

Han Ji-eun, who reigned as the strongest female amateur 3-cushion player, entered the professional stage this season and is showing a confident appearance like Cha Yu-ram in the past .Cha Yu-ram said, “I got the feeling that Han Ji-eun is a very solid player. I’m looking forward to seeing what it will be like when we actually compete against her.” When she returns as a player, ‘working mom’ Cha Yu-ram, a mother of two children, will have to spend even busier times. During the regular season, which lasts for nearly 10 months out of the year, you have to participate in various competitions, so you spend a lot of time away from home, and in the off-season, you have to train intensely. Cha Yu-ram said, “So, after I decided to return, my family who loved me were very worried,” and “But my heart wanted it, so I decided to return as a player. ”Cha Yu-ram’s original team, Welcome Savings Bank, still holds priority nomination rights in the team league. Cha Yu-ram said, “If I get the chance, I would like to try the team league because it is a really good stage, but I am still cautious because many things are open, including contract renewals.” Regarding the two remaining tour competitions this season, he said, “First of all, I think of it as a stage to say hello to the fans. In fact, 카지노사이트킹 (based on performance), I shouldn’t go out, but I think now is the right time to say hello.”
