Korean NT 2021

  • Like u said, those 2 veteran MB are fixed. As for Pyo, im eager to see her performance once she's given the chance. She play good games when she's focus like during the 2nd PO. Well, they need to play 15 matches and players rotation is crucial. I do hope they can beat big teams this time. Mainly to boost their confidence and regain their rhythm after major changes in lineup

  • At this point, do you see Ahn hyejin as main setter? Yeum hyeseon has not play any games since she got injured last time. But of course she is the most experienced setter there

    yes no doubt. YHS is injured, who knows what she can and cannot do or is just pushing. AHJ, even before the season was over was the only setter that did better. YHS, Lee Nayeon are decent but can't overcome crisis and needs to be sub out and their block height is short. Cho Song-hwa's knee issues has always been a problem for her, which maybe why she's slow. AHJ is young and inexperienced, but faster and could atleast get her hands up high.


    overall... these setters will have problems when up against 6ft and over players.

  • Fast volleyball is interesting to watch. Most of the times the korean team has problem with blocking. If their MBs play well, high chance they can win as they have good attackers. Maybe more of slide attack as Suji and heejin can do it.


    Between Soyoung & Sohwi, who do you think is better? For me, Soyoung is better at defense while Sohwi at offense. Anyway I dont know their stats

  • Kim Heejin hopefully will step up. For 2019 VNL, i think she was the top scorer. She just needs to get back in shape, and be in better condition.


    Park Jongah... i still have my reservations about her plays. Or maybe i didnt watch enough of her past plays on int'l levels. She doesnt score that many (or she did?) She's good in vleague though.

  • Kim Heejin hopefully will step up. For 2019 VNL, i think she was the top scorer. She just needs to get back in shape, and be in better condition.

    Park Jeongah was actually Korea's top scorer back in 2018 World Championship. Kim Heejin was injured back then.

  • yes, park jeongah was one of korea's top scorers back then. But her performance dropped and that's why she played as sub for Heejin. She struggle in international level but good in the league. Maybe lavarini can do something bout that. Heejin need to get back to her striker mode. With her playing as MB in the league didnt help her much

  • Bad bad news for the National team. Three players, Kang So-hwi, Moon Myoung-hwa and Yim Myung-ok won't be able to attend the VNL this year because of injuries.


    More importantly, Lavarini won't be able to evaluate the two new players for the Olympics. This is particularly problematic with Yim as she could very well have been the libero brought for Tokyo...


    Yuk Seo-young (IBK), Lee Da-hyeon (Hyundai) and Han Da-hye (GS Caltex) will replace them respectively.


    The 18 player roster is now:


    OH: Kim Yeon-koung, Lee So-young, Pyo Seung-ju, Kim Ju-hyang, Yuk Seo-young

    MB: Yang Hyo-jin, Kim Su-ji, Han Song-yi, Park Eun-jin, Lee Da-hyeon

    OP: Kim Hee-jin, Park Jeong-ah, Jeong Ji-yun

    S: Yeum Hye-seon, An Hye-jin, Kim Da-in

    Li: Oh Ji-young, Han Da-hye

  • This will be the opportunity of a LIFETIME for a lot of young players who will unexpectedly get the chance to escape from their coach and learn under a Master of the game.


    IBK, in particular, could completely transform its franchise. What incredible luck for them...


    I'm also very happy for Da-hyeon. A smart player like that, imagine how much she'll learn!

  • I know Kang Sohwi injured her ankle during playoff. She need to rest to fully recover so not a surprise there.


    I also predict Yim will go to Tokyo but now not sure how it goes. Lee Dahyeon is a promising player. I would like to see more of her.


    And wow 3 OH from IBK.

  • Happy for Lee Dahyeon, smart player. Still surprised Lee Juah wasnt chosen.


    I believe kang sohwi will still be chosen for the OG despite not being able to make it for VNL.


    No, the twins wont be playing this VNL/ olympics.

  • Happy for Lee Dahyeon, smart player. Still surprised Lee Juah wasnt chosen.


    I believe kang sohwi will still be chosen for the OG despite not being able to make it for VNL.
