Kim Yeon-kyung ‘My uniform can be crumpled’… However, a fan’s sincerity must be properly established

On the 27th, the ‘2023 International Volleyball Federation VNL’ Dominican Republic-Korea match was held at Seosuwon Chilbo Gymnasium in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do.

After retiring from the women’s volleyball team, Kim Yeon-kyung, who served as an advisor to Ser Zaho, appeared on the court with her players. She, Yeon-Kyung Kim, watched her players train while her players did warm-up, along with Mi-Yeon Kim, a non-competition player.

Kim Yeon-kyung, who initially accepted the national team’s advisory position, said she would “act as a bridge between the players, the coach and the coaching staff”, she revealed. When full-fledged training began before the game, Kim Yeon-kyung prevented the players from passing the attack and serve practice balls into the stands.

A player’s strong serve can cause damage to the spectators. Coincidentally, behind the bench where Kim Yeon-kyung was, Kim Yeon-kyung’스포츠토토s national team uniform and Park Jung-ah’s uniform were hanging.

When players’ practice balls bounced on the court and hit Yeon-kyung Kim’s own uniform, which was hung by spectators, the shape of the uniform was distorted. Kim Yeon-kyung, who has a usually chic personality, could have left the uniform alone, but she seemed to have touched the style of the uniform hanging on the coat again, thinking of the sincerity of the fans who hung her national team uniform.

After that, Kim Yeon-kyung watched the training of her players again and looked with a hawk’s eye to see if there was anything to help. After the players’ warm-up time was over, advisor Kim Yeon-kyung headed to the stands with the players not participating in the game.

Even in the stands, people cheered for Korea, who had lost 25 straight matches at VNL. However, Korea lost to the Dominican Republic with a set score of 0-3 (18-25, 18-25, 16-25).

After being dragged 2-7 in the first set, they pursued with the opponent’s crime and Lee Joo-ah’s blocking, but the difference in skill was not easily narrowed.

The beginning of the second set was tight. Korea did not easily give up points due to the concentration of defense. The opponent’s offensive errors tied the score at 6-6. However, the Dominican Republic took a set when they took a 21-13 lead with serve aces and consecutive attacks.

There was no turnaround in the third set. Korea’s attack continued to be blocked, and Dominica’s fire-breathing attack forced Korea to bow its head with a 0-3 defeat, giving up even the third set.

South Korea suffered humiliation as it finished last in the Volleyball Nations League (VNL) for the second year in a row by defeating China on the 1st and Poland on the 2nd.
