‘Hard → Resignation → Disclosure’ Heungkuk Life Insurance, Possibility of Kim Yeon-kyung’s absence in a troubled atmosphere ↑

“I’m not in 100% condition”

Heungkuk Life Insurance will face off against IBK Industrial Bank of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Division at the Hwaseong General Indoor Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 8th.

Heungkuk Life Insurance runs the team as an acting manager for the last two consecutive games, including this day. Heungkuk Life Insurance sacked manager Kwon Soon-chan on the 2nd. Shin Yong-jun, the new head coach, explained that he had no choice but to leave the team due to a conflict between former head coach Kim Yeo-il and coach Kwon Soon-chan over the ‘rotation’.

However, this was only part of the hard reason. Heungkuk Life Insurance’s parent company Lee Ho-jin, chairman of Taekwang Group, acted on the hardship of director Kwon Soon-chan, who could not be understood. Chairman Lee Ho-jin was usually dissatisfied with coach Kwon Soon-chan’s selection of players and game management, and tried to intervene through general manager Kim Yeo-il, but when the command tower did not accept it, he pulled out his sword.

Shin Yong-jun, the new head of the team, drew the line that there was no ‘intervention’ by high-ranking officials. But these were all lies. After the game on the 5th, ‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Hae-ran revealed that there was a high-ranking intervention. In particular, Kim Yeon-kyung confessed that there was an experience of losing a game that was well played due to the intervention of high-ranking officials.

Heungkuk Life Insurance appointed director Kim Ki-joong as the new command tower on the 6th to settle the atmosphere. However, coach Kim Ki-joong will not direct the game on the 6th. The Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) announced on the 8th that “Heungkuk Life Insurance is finishing the job of appointing a coach, so today’s (8th) match is scheduled for coach Kim Dae-kyung to act as manager.”

Coach Dae-gyeong Kim, who responded to the interview with the reporters on behalf of the head coach, was asked if he had any conversations with manager Ki-joong Kim, and he briefly replied, “I haven’t met the (new) coach yet. I’ve never met him.” 스포츠토토

The atmosphere of the current Heungkuk Life Insurance team is bound to be turbulent. Following the sacking of manager Kwon Soon-chan, acting manager Lee Young-soo also expressed his intention to resign after the game on the 5th. Coach Kim Dae-gyeong explained, “I also told the players, ‘Because the fans are watching the game, we shouldn’t lose performance, and I want them to do their best.'”

Coach Dae-Kyung Kim is equally embarrassed. He added, “It’s embarrassing because many things happened one after another, but I think we have to prepare well for the game.”

However, it is unknown whether Kim Yeon-kyung will participate in the game that day. Since the beginning of the year, Kim Yeon-kyung has had a difficult time with symptoms such as enteritis. Coach Dae-kyung Kim said, “Kim Yeon-kyung is not in good shape. He seems to have to think about (Ki-yong) after seeing him warming up before the game. He is not in 100% condition due to enteritis, etc.”, citing the possibility that he may not play.
