I'm watching heungkuk and ibk game right now. it's so intense at the start of set3. so crazy!
very true, I guess I was thinking more towards because they were both OP, so it was hard to switch rotations. btw I just asked a volleyball fan in Korea, seems like hwangyounjoo is having a surgery on her finger.
on a side note, is there any news on upcoming FAs or transfers?
just wondering, is there any news regarding towards hyundai #4 hwangyoonjoo, as to why she hasnt been playing much? besides the fact that maya is an OP also.
didnt know there was such things too. what else can people get fined for?
hahahaha that was bad calculation on my part, totally ignored the wins and lost, only thought of the points. hyundai and kgc just needs to keep taking away points from gs and ibk. I'm rooting for heungkuk all the way.
seems like heungkuk just needs 3 wins with straight sets or 3-1 to secure #1. if hipass wins all their games they'd be at 60points but will still loose to heungkuk over wins and lost. gs... the started the season so strong, momentum got lost somewhere. hyundai and kgc just needs to keep taking atleast 1 point from each game then heungkuk will be champs. if all is true. heungkuk will celebrate their win at kgc on March 3rd.
Yes! my girl 3rd round MVP!
thank you all for being so welcoming ❤❤❤
I remember reading something but can't remember where, that after the dispute between KYK and Heungkuk, KOVO or KVA decided on a new rule where all new Korean players must play in the Korean V-League for like so many years or so before they can leave their Korean team to play abroad.
Lee So-Young who debut in 2012/2013 season only qualified for FA status at the end of the 2017/2018 season. So that means So-Young played for 6 seasons before she qualified for FA status.
Also, I have seen posts in Korea forum stating that Go Ye-Rim will qualify for FA status at the end of this season. Since Ye-Rim was drafted in 2013/2014, that also means that she would've played for 6 seasons in the V-League before she qualified for FA status.
So in the case of Lee Jae-Yeong and her twin sister Lee Da-Yeong, they were drafted in 2014/2015 season so that mean they will qualified for FA status at the end of 2019/2020 season.
thanks for the clarification.
@anoniminona12 yes, thank you very much for the explanation...
It's really troublesome.. and it's more or less affected the NT performance.... They have to fix it fast, if they really target a medal in Olympic 2020...
Another matter puzzling me: why are no other Korean NT players play on leagues outside S.Korea beside KYK? Is it because no clubs offer any of them? Or there are offers, but they won't allow to play abroad by the higher ups? Or the players themselves doesn't want to play abroad?
There are a few of them that I think should play in "more" competitive leagues to improve themselves..
But there are 2 that I definitely think they should really play abroad:
1. It is a little late but still can: MB Yang Hyo Jin.. I could say she has no real rival in her position in Korea, be in scoring, block kill, and average blocking... Doesn't matter her club didn't perform well, she awarded the best MB almost every season... There should be a club or two outside Korea that interested of her.. But she's approaching 30 now and a captain and also the highest paid in the country, so I'm pessimistic she would want to play abroad...
2. OH Lee Jae Young.. She's been awarded best OH the last 3 yrs in the league .. She just debuted 4 yrs ago .. Even when the club was in the bottom rank, she still got the award! I'm really worried she can't improve much if she's staying in Korea, because she's the ace of her club and no competitor...She's still young and has potential as all around player .. In the NT she perform well enough in covering for KYK. in many matches...
Though it's purely my personal subjective suggestion... because playing in other leagues doesn't guarantee to became better.. or staying will became worse... It's just about experience...
but it's all really depend on good relationship and cooperation between the pro league (KOVO) and the KVA....
OH Lee jaeyeong should try playing with other clubs outside of korea. but I hope she doesnt run into the same issue KYK did in the past. hopefully that issue isnt the reason players aren't playing outside if korean.
hehehehe thank you very much!
hi all, this site has given me alot of answers to my noob know how volleyball. I am from usa and a big fan of korean league twins Lee Jaeyeong and Lee Dayeong.
off topic, does anyone know how long are contracts for players after being drafted? someone told me Heungkuk Lee Jaeyeong will be FA next season.
