Why did Kim Yeon-kyung say, “I’m embarrassed?”

Kim Yeon-kyung celebrated her 18th anniversary in a home game against Pepper Savings Bank in the third round of the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on the 5th.

Kim Yeon-kyung, a graduate of Hanil Technical High School, achieved her dream of becoming a professional golfer by receiving Heungkuk Life Insurance’s first-round pick in the 2005-2006 Rookie Draft, and made her debut in the Hyundai Construction Competition on December 4, 2005, scoring 29 points (54.05 percent attack success rate). It was the moment when she announced the birth of the volleyball empress.

Eighteen years have passed since then, but Kim is still dominating the women’s V-League with her world-class performance. Her name is at the top of various indicators, including No. 1 overall in offense (44.69 percent), No. 1 in native scoring (271 percent) and No. 6 in receiving (42.7 percent). Heungkuk Life Insurance, which has world-renowned star Kim Yeon-koung, is also enjoying nine consecutive wins and is now leading the league (12 wins and 1 loss). 카지노사이트 순위

Kim led Pepper Savings Bank to a 3-0 victory on Saturday and held a small ceremony with her best friend Kim Soo-ji in front of her home fans. They held a banner with the words “strongest friendship” on the back of their childhood photos and took a commemorative photo. According to Heungkuk Life Insurance officials, the banner was produced and delivered by a fan.

Kim Soo-ji, who graduated from Hanil Chunghwa Girls’ High School, wore a Hyundai Engineering & Construction uniform as the third-ranked player in the first round of the 2005-2006 Rookie Draft, and made her debut on December 4, 2005 as a substitute for Heungkuk Life Insurance. Coincidentally, their best friends faced off even before their debut match.

After the game, Kim Yeon-kyung met with reporters and said, “I’m ashamed that I’ve been in the professional profession for 18 years,” and said, “I got a lot of congratulations for my 18th anniversary, and I think I’ve been a professional for a long time.”

It was all the more meaningful as it was the 18th anniversary of her return to Heungkuk Life with her best friend. “Kim Soo-ji came at first and got injured, so she made a comeback late. She has a lot of season left, and I think she will help her win by playing her role,” Kim said. “She has a lot to tell the middle blockers with her experience. Thanks to Suzy, our height has been reinforced compared to last year.”

Originally, Kim planned to retire after the 2022-2023 season, but after finishing second due to the Korea Expressway Corporation’s barrier in the championship game, she decided to extend her mandatory military service in a surprise move thanks to fans’ desire. “I am well aware that many fans want me to play more. I can’t help but think about that,” Kim said, signing a one-year contract with Heungkuk Life Insurance.

When Kim retires after playing for two more years, she will be able to complete exactly 20 years. When asked if she has greed to do so, she said, “People around me are asking me to complete 20 years, but I’m telling them that I’ve gotten older. I’m doing my best this season.”

The Korea Volleyball Federation said, “Kim Yeon-kyung scored 135 points during the second round, ranking eighth in score (first among domestic players), seventh overall in attack (first among domestic players) with an attack success rate of 41.03% and sixth in serve with an average of 0.2 per set, contributing to Heungkuk Life’s second round victory.”

“My personal record was that I did better in the first round, but I got the MVP in the second round,” Kim said, displaying a humble attitude, “I think I was able to win it because my team won all the games. I’m so thankful to my teammates. I feel like I need to treat them to the fullest.”
