‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung Remains at Heungkuk Life Insurance → ‘Captain’ Hwang Min-kyung to IBK, Hyundai Engineering & Construction’s Plan B?

 Concerns are piling up for Hyundai E&C, which was considered a candidate for the championship. It’s time to focus on ‘Plan B’.

1st place in the regular league for the 2021-2022 season Hyundai E&C. Although spring volleyball could not be held in the aftermath of Corona 19, and had to stop at the threshold without being able to rise to the ‘winning’ spot, it was a team that was looking forward to the next season.

The 2022-2023 season was also a strong candidate for the championship. As expected, they took the lead, accumulating points step by step. After the opening, they seemed to keep the lead with 15 consecutive wins. There seemed to be no opponent.

Then, foreign player Yasmin was out of the team due to an injury. The void was well filled by remaining players, including veteran apogee Hwang Yeon-ju. However, the strong attack card was disappointing.

He was holding up well, but even Kim Yeon-gyeon, the starting Libero, was injured. That’s how Hyundai E&C slipped. He finished second in the regular league and played spring volleyball, but was caught by Korea Expressway Corporation in third place. Hyundai E&C’s season ended like that.

After the V-League award ceremony on the 10th, all attention was focused on whether Hyundai E&C would reinforce its power. It was because free agents were pouring in from various teams.

Above all, ‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung said after winning MVP, “I am thinking about extending my player career. If I do more, I will work hard so that I can stand at the top,” he said. “Now I am a FA. The options are open. It’s a situation where I can choose. Kim Yeon-kyung was expected to go to Hyundai E&C, saying, “I will choose a team where I can adapt well and be less difficult.”

A team that can win a combined championship. If Kim Yeon-kyung, who became a free agent, played for Hyundai E&C, which has good midfielders, setters, and liberos, the chances of winning would be higher than any other team. Hyundai E&C moved to catch Kim Yeon-kyung.

However, Kim Yeon-kyung’s choice was to wear a ‘pink’ uniform and try again to win. Heungkuk Life Insurance took first place in the regular league last season, but gave a 0% chance of winning to Korea Expressway Corporation, which held Hyundai E&C 메이저놀이터and advanced to the championship match.

Hyundai E&C was unable to catch Kim Yeon-kyung, the outsider. Hyundai E&C had no choice but to pay close attention to Hwang Min-kyung’s decision as an internal free agent. Hwang Min-kyung is an outsider hitter who led the team as captain. But even Hwang Min-kyung left.

IBK Industrial Bank announced on the 18th, “We signed a free agent contract with Hwang Min-kyung for an annual salary of 450 million won.”

Hwang Min-kyung, who has the ability to comply with both offense and defense, played 34 regular league games in the 2022-2023 season and scored 214 points with a 31.4% success rate.

The player who left can’t help it now. Hyundai E&C focuses on cracking down on the rest of the internal FA. Outside hitter Jeong Si-young and libero Kim Yeon-gyeon were caught. Opposite Spiker Hwang Yeon-joo overseas has been verbally agreed upon. Now, we plan to focus on selecting the reward players carefully. He is also aiming for a tryout for foreign players in the Asian Quarter on the 21st.
