The shift in perception of the women’s professional volleyball team is not unusual.

There is still a period of negotiations left, but 5 out of 20 players who have qualified for free agent (FA) have already chosen to transfer. It is already on a ‘previous level’ scale. In the last 4 years, 1 person (2022), 1 person (2021), 2 person (2020), and 2 person (2019) respectively moved the team. Kim Yeon-gyeong (35), the “big fish,” stayed with Heungkuk Life Insurance after much consideration, but the game seems to be shaking as the main players of each team move one after another.

The most bleeding club is the ‘defending champion’ Korea Expressway Corporation. 메이저사이트Korea Expressway Corporation won the free contract with Park Jeong-ah (30), Bae Yoo-na (33), Moon Jeong-won (31), Jeon Sae-yan (26), and Jeong Dae-young (41). This is the highest number among the 7 teams. Park Jeong-ah, who played a dual main role, transferred to Pepper Savings Bank, and veteran middle blocker Jeong Dae-young returned to his parent team, GS Caltex. I signed a new contract with the remaining 3 people, but the power drain is the biggest.

Hwang Min-gyeong (32), the captain of Hyundai E&C, who ranked second in the league, went to IBK Industrial Bank. Hwang Min-kyung is a striker who scored 266 points in 34 games last season. In particular, his defense was strong, such as ranking 10th in the receiving category with a receiving efficiency of 41.82%, and he has been active on both sides of the offense and defense. Following the failure to recruit Kim Yeon-kyung, Hyundai E&C has given up its main player. However, Kim Yeon-gyeon (29), Jeong Si-young (30), and Hwang Yeon-joo (36), who were released through free contracts, are likely to remain.

The biggest free agent winner is Pepper Savings Bank. Pepper Savings Bank, which stayed at the bottom for two consecutive seasons after its establishment, strengthened its offensive power by recruiting Park Jeong-ah and Chae Seon-ah (30). Last season, libero Oh Ji-young (34) and setter Lee Go-eun (28) joined, and captain Lee Han-bi (26), who was released as a free agent this time, succeeded in renewing the contract, and his strength has risen remarkably. As experienced veterans join the team, which was mainly focused on young players, expectations for next season’s performance are also growing.Heungkuk Life Insurance, who stayed in runner-up this season, re-signed with Kim Yeon-kyung and recruited IBK Industrial Bank Kim Su-ji (35) and embraced a ‘best friend duo’. Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Su-ji have a special relationship, going to elementary, middle, and high school together. The two worked together in the national team, but this is the first time they are eating together in the league. Previously, Kim Yeon-kyung said, “There is a player who talks about running together,” and she expressed her intention to play with Kim Su-ji, and Heungkuk Life Insurance also promised to reinforce her power for Kim Yeon-kyung, who wants a combined championship.
