  • No Lee Da Yeong? :( :( :(

  • Yes, No Lee Da Young. All of the setters are quite short.

  • I guess for Korea, KYK is a once in a generation kind of a player. I hope they find a way to have a player or preferably a better team for her. She's getting older and none can change that.

    Favorite players: M: Maxim Mikhaylov, Murilo, Serginho, Aaron Russell, Otavio, Simone Giannelli, Ivan Zaytsev, Tsvetan Sokolov, Michał Kubiak, Mariusz Wlazly, Pawel Zagummy W: Sheilla, Zhu Ting, Natalia, Fe Garay, Fofao, Gabi, Thaisa, Foluke Akinradewo, Wei Qiuyue, Ding Xia, Carli Lloyd, Fabi, Natalia Goncharova, Yuko Sano, Saoris Kimura and Sakoda

    South Korea can't seem to settle who they want to play in the setter position. So far this international season they have used about five setters. YANG Hyo-Jin (MB) is still ruled out due to injury.

  • well both Hye-Seon Yeum and So-La Lee played poorly during WGP, I don't know how the other ones played in further part of season :whistle:

  • Totally agree with you, both play so poorly. I just don't understand why they didn't select Cho Song-Hwa in the first place for the WGP, and if not the WGP they should have given her a chance for the Asian Championship, or for the WGCC. Cho Song-Hwa was the best setter last season in the v-league, heck she even won the best setter award. Cho performed better than both Yeum Hye-Seon and Lee So-La (btw not even first choice setter in her team :whistle:) for the entire season.

  • It's been a busy season for Korean national team, congratulations for winning a qualification in Thailand. Nonetheless, I find mr. Hong Sung-Jin way of managing his setters questionable. The treatment of aforementioned Cho Song-Hwa in this tournament was quite peculiar.
