‘Kim Yeon-kyung’s power’ has also been proven in the FA market.
Heungkuk Life Pink Spiders finished preparations for the 2023-2024 season by officially announcing a free agency contract with Kim Su-ji on the 19th.
Kim Su-ji, a former national middle blocker, signed a three-year contract with Heungkuk Life Insurance for a total compensation of 310 million won (annual salary of 270 million won, incentive of 40 million won). It took him 6 years to return to his home team. Suji Kim said, “I am happy to play again for my parent team Heungkuk Life Insurance. I am grateful to the club for reaching out and I will do my best to contribute to the combined championship next season.”
Heungkuk Life Insurance Club also said, “Kim Su-ji is a veteran player with excellent blocking and mobile attack skills. “, expressed hope.
Earlier, Heungkuk Life Insurance made clear its will to challenge the summit by signing a one-year contract with Kim Yeon-kyung, the “Volleyball Empress,” for a total compensation of 775 million won (annual salary of 475 million won, incentives of 300 million won). Kim Yeon-kyung, who exercised her free agency rights for the first time in her life, even contacted Hyundai E&C, but in the end, she could not reach her contract, and she turned to Heungkuk Life Insurance for active courtship.
Kim Yeon-kyung’s goal for the next season is definitely winning. She has already shown her strong will to win at the V-League Awards Ceremony as well. She played a role in attracting Kim Yeon-kyung, who remained at Heungkuk Life Insurance, to even Kim Su-ji, a ‘best friend’. Even before the FA market opened, in the volleyball world, “Kim Yeon-kyung wants to play with her best friend Kim Su-ji” was heard frequently. 먹튀검증
As a result, Heungkuk Life Insurance was able to build a championship power while holding Kim Yeon-kyung, who occupies an absolute portion of the team’s strength, and veteran middle blocker Kim Su-ji. Expectations are growing that world-renowned coach Marcello Abondanza, who joined at the end of last season, will realize his volleyball style 100%.
On the other hand, Hyundai E&C, which had gone all-in on recruiting Kim Yeon-kyung, lost even Hwang Min-kyung, who was one of the free agents, to IBK Industrial Bank of Korea, and weakened its strength. IBK Industrial Bank also had to strengthen its power as Suji Kim left for Heungkuk Life Insurance. Also in the FA market, it was evident how great the influence of Kim Yeon-kyung’s choice was.
Even after winning the regular league championship, Heungkuk Life Insurance, who knelt down with 2 wins and 3 losses in the championship match against Expressway Corporation, knocks the top once again as it upgrades its power with Kim Yeon-kyung remaining and Kim Su-ji joining. On the other hand, as the strength of Korea Expressway Corporation and Hyundai E&C weakened, it seems difficult to predict the direction of the championship trophy next season.
