On the 23rd, Lee Dae-sung explained the reason for the sudden declaration of overseas expansion through his SNS. He said, “You may have read the news in the article, but I have decided to challenge the overseas league for the upcoming season.” .
Veteran guard Lee Dae-seong, who was considered the biggest free agent, chose a challenge instead of stability. He could have stayed in Korea and signed a good free agent contract, but he decided to go abroad for his dream. On the 20th, Dae-sung Lee’s team, Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, announced, “We did not sign a contract out of respect for Dae-sung Lee, one of the biggest players in the FA, and his intention to advance to overseas leagues.”
Foreign leagues are not unfamiliar. After dropping out of Chung-Ang University, Lee Dae-sung played for a year on the NCAA Division 2 basketball team at Brigham Young University. In 2017, when he was in Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, his previous team, he challenged the G League, the lower league of the American Professional Basketball (NBA), with the status of voluntary withdrawal. Even though he has reached a considerable age this year, he has not given up on his dream. He takes on another challenge. According to KOGAS, Lee Dae-sung’s number one challenge in overseas expansion is the Australian league. It is also connected with the Japanese B-League.

The consideration of KOGAS, which respected Lee Dae-sung’s opinion, was also a great help. Gas Corporation said, “I think Lee Dae-sung’s challenge to go abroad is a very meaningful and valuable challenge for the development of Korean basketball.” Lee Dae-seong also replied, “I sincerely thank the club once again for supporting and caring for the new challenge.”
Lee Dae-sung is considered one of the best guards in the KBL. In June of last year, he joined KOGAS through a trade from Goyang Orions (now Day One). Even after he moved teams, he continued to play the role of an ace. He played in 51 regular league games in the 2022-2023 season, averaging 18.1 points. He is the highest scoring player in the country. In addition, Lee Dae-sung received a lot of love from KBL fans, such as coming in 2nd place in the All-Star fan vote.
Lee Dae-seong also said, “It was a short period of time, but I was sincerely grateful to the fans of Gas Corporation who gave me so much love. Thanks to the fans, I was truly happy. I will live my life without forgetting gratitude.” I give it to you. I ask for your continued support.”
