Netflix’s “Single’s Inferno” heralds the juggernaut streaming platform’s reality dating productions, brought forth through its South Korean themes and participants. Among its third-season contestants, Lee Gwan Hee (이관희) is known for busking in the Korean Basketball League (KBL), but he is also recognizable for his brief stint in the Philippines, having gone toe-to-toe with the country’s best.
The 6-foot-2 guard supplemented the Phoenix Fuel Masters’ 2016 Governers Cup campaign, brought in as the franchise’s Asian reinforcement, abiding by the 6-foot-3 maximum height stipulation. Together with Eugene Phelps, he brought the teal-and-white squad to its first postseason appearance, racking in 24 markers on 90 percent shooting, to go with six rebounds and three assists in his final matchup against TNT KaTropa in the quarterfinals.
Despite his one-and-done appearance in the country, the now 35-year-old cager recollects his experience in the league, regarding it as having a positive impact on his career.
“Because of the time I spent in the Philippines, I have confidence playing abroad so that’s why I can do good in Japan, Macau, and the Philippines,” he mentioned.
