It was a scene that reminded me of the nickname ‘Yeongyeong sister’. Kim Yeon-kyung (35) volunteered for her junior Lee Won-jeong (23, Sang Heungkuk Life Insurance) and went out for an interview.
Heungkuk Life Insurance won KGC Ginseng Corporation with a set score of 3-0 (25-16, 29-27, 25-22) in the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Round 6 home game held at Incheon Samsan World Gymnasium on the 11th.
As a result, Heungkuk Life Insurance took 25 wins and 9 losses (76 points), ahead of second place Hyundai E&C (24 wins and 10 losses, 70 points) by 6 points, and placed first in the regular league. With IBK Industrial Bank of Korea and Hyundai E&C ahead of the game, if you add just one point, you will be able to confirm the championship on your own.
The best players in the game were Kim Yeon-kyung, who virtually determined the atmosphere of the game, and setter Lee Won-jeong, who managed a good game. In particular, Lee Won-jung was known to be in poor physical condition to the extent that coach Marcello Abondanza was considering putting him in until just before the game, and his performance on the day stood out even more. After the game, he said, “I’m not in good shape. However, I focused on the game with the thought that if I confirmed the championship early, I would have more time to rest.
Kim Yeon-kyung said, “It was an important match for both teams, and we got 3 points, so it feels good to have 1 point left until the championship. Also, we played badly before the road construction, but the atmosphere improved because we played a game to make up for that atmosphere. We will do well in the future. seems to be,” he said.
The good atmosphere of Heungkuk Life Insurance was felt during the interview. Lee Won-jeong tried to say one by one, saying, “There are too many… He gives instructions from one to ten” when asked by reporters what kind of guidance he received from director Abondanza. A momentary mental breakdown (mental breakdown) due to the sudden emergence of numerous requests from director Abondanza. At that moment, Kim Yeon-kyung, who burst into laughter, interrupted her by saying, “Can’t we talk about that, it’s a strategy,” and the audience burst into laughter.
However, ‘Yeongyeong unnie’ was warm. Kim Yeon-kyung said, “Since the setter touches all the balls, if you don’t remember the tactics for each situation, you will continue to get off beat. Setters have a little hard time memorizing such things. It seems that it is difficult to do it,” he summarized instead. At the same time, he did not miss out on the fun, asking Lee Won-jung on behalf of the reporters, “So what does the director ask a lot?”
A situation where everyone is waiting for an answer from the setter who has a mental breakdown. Lee Won-jeong said, “I can’t say it in summary. The director talks so much that I honestly spill what I have to spill. He talks about various things such as blocking, tossing, and serving,” causing Kim Yeon-kyung to laugh again. 안전놀이터
It is thanks to Lee Won-jung’s integration into the team just over two months after the transfer. Kim Yeon-kyung said, “At first, it was awkward because I didn’t know Won Won-yi was using a dialect, but I felt that he was a player who worked hard while training together. He must have had a hard time with the trade, but it seemed really good that he was adapting well to the team and working hard. I think he will be able to become a better player in the future,” he praised.
