“Shouldn’t we choose a team that can win?”

Hyundai E&C, with her top-tier players, was looking for Kim Yeon-kyung, but her final choice was her current team, Heungkuk Life Insurance.

A total of 775 million won for her one-year extension, the highest treatment ever in women’s volleyball.

What attracted Kim Yeon-kyung here was the promise of full support.

“I think I was shaken a lot during the conversation with the coach. I heard about the visions and plans for building a team next year.”

Winning doesn’t come for free. Reinforcement of middle brokers and setter resources, which Heungkuk Life Insurance is relatively weak in, is mentioned as a priority.

There are many great fish-class players like Yeom Hye-seon and Kim Su-ji in the FA market this time.

Building a team with a total annual salary of 2.8 billion won is also a challenge. 

The club said that it respected Kim Yeon-kyung’s intention to consider whether to extend his active service after the season, as Kim Yeon-kyung signed a one-year contract rather than the usual three-year FA.

There is also a prospect that Kim Yeon-kyung will challenge the IOC Athletes Commission while continuing his athlete career.
