South Korea - Women's V-League 2020-2021

  • There were some indications that she left the team on bad terms last season, since she was spotted out in public in March (in her hometown Pohang) even though the season wasn't over yet and Hyundai later clarified that she left training without permission and without contacting anyone.

    I don't think there was any major discord between the player and the team. Hyundai wanted her to come back and tried to persuade her to return but couldn't. That is why they didn't announce her departure from the team straight away. We can only speculate as to why she decided to quit playing volleyball. Some of the articles that came out today mention that she receives criticism and malicious comments online.

    Yes it seems like the news report that talked about her "running away from training" was blown out of proportion and a lot of korean netizens jumped on the hate-train really quick which is sadly rather usual in Korea with celebs and malicious online comments.


    I wasn't trying to imply anything - I think the source that I read was rather biased against her and the whole training "incident".

  • Terribly sad news :( I hope everyone has virtual shoulders to lean on.

  • Soooo apparently the schedule for the 2020 Kovo Cup has been released ?


    They are still discussing whether fans will be allowed inside the venue and what percentage of the Jecheon Gymnasium will be filled.


    It's not on the official website yet but some news sites have reported the groups and schedule for both the men and women.


    Group A consists of the 1st, 3rd and 5th-placed team from last season; while Group B consists of the 2nd, 4th and 6th-placed team.
