Heungkuk Life Insurance won 3-0 (25-15 25-13 25-16) in a confrontation with IBK Industrial Bank of the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Division held at the Hwaseong Indoor Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 15th.

Heungkuk Life Insurance, who had only one point left (2 sets obtained) to first place on its own, took a 10-point difference from the first set and started off pleasantly. While Yelena and Kim Yeon-kyung’s twins scored 8 and 7 points, IBK Industrial Bank, whose ‘Spring Volleyball’ was already frustrated, destroyed itself with 8 rooms.

Heungkuk Life Insurance, who had the chance to win, won the third set without any change.
Last season, Heungkuk Life Insurance’s rise to No. 1 cannot be explained without mentioning Kim Yeon-kyung. Not only did he still show off his ‘world class’ skills, but he also served as a mental support when the team was shaken due to the manager’s hardship. It was also a good thing that strong competitor Hyundai E&C collapsed after Yasmin’s injury.
Kim Yeon-kyung, who was mainly active overseas, played a total of 6 seasons in the V-League including this season, all of which made a record of reaching the championship. He won three of the preceding five championships (2005-2006, 2006-2007, 2008-2009). In the most recent 2020-2021 season, after running in first place throughout the season, the team at the end of the season was shaken by the’twin sisters’ incident and finished second and runner-up in the league. Kim Yeon-kyung, who returned after playing an active part in China in the 2021-2022 season, achieved first place in the league and then challenged the integrated championship. Heungkuk Life’s first place in the regular league is the first time in five years. In the 2018-2019 season, Heungkuk Life Insurance achieved a combined championship.
