‘First FA in my life’ Kim Yeon-kyung, Heungkuk Life Insurance stay or leave… kinship or kinship
‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung acquired the qualification as a free agent (FA) for the first time in her life. While he revealed his intention to extend his active service and revealed his will to go to a team with a ‘ possibility to win ‘, attention is focused on whether Heungkuk Life Insurance and Kim Yeon-kyung will accompany him.
On the 10th, Kim Yeon-kyung announced that she would extend her active career in an interview after she was selected as the MVP of the women’s division at the ‘Dodram 2022-23 V-League Awards Ceremony’.
She said he was “negotiating with her club as she is thinking of adding to her current playing career” and she explained that “she is in talks with other clubs as well”.
In the championship match, Kim Yeon-kyung, who was frustrated by the Korea Expressway Corporation and missed the combined championship, strongly expressed her desire to ‘go to a team that can win an integrated victory’.
He said, “I think I want to win the combined championship, so I am trying to choose such a team.” .
Kim Yeon-kyung’s overseas transfer… Free Transfer Rights-Player Management Rights Conflict
Since Kim Yeon-kyung failed to win the combined championship at Heungkuk Life Insurance this season, there are observations that the possibility of renewing the contract with Heungkuk Life Insurance has decreased.
Above all, Kim Yeon-kyung and Heungkuk Life Insurance had a conflict due to Kim Yeon-kyung’s overseas transfer from 2012 to 2014, so the possibility of renewing the contract was evaluated as low.
Kim Yeon-kyung, who joined Heungkuk Life Insurance as the first pick in the 2005 rookie draft, played four seasons in Korea and then played for two years at JT Marvelous in Japan as a loaner from 2009. Afterwards, he moved to Fenerbahçe, Turkey, where he continued his career.
After Kim Yeon-kyung led Fenerbahce to win the European Volleyball Federation (CEV) Champions League in the 2011-12 season, a conflict arose with Heungkuk Life Insurance as she searched for her agent and an overseas club. This is because Heungkuk Life Insurance and Kim Yeon-kyung had different interpretations of the FA acquisition qualifications.
Heungkuk Life Insurance did not count the three years that Kim Yeon-kyung was leased to Japan’s JT Marvelous and Turkey’s Fenerbahce as a player for Heungkuk Life Insurance. However, Kim Yeon-kyung refuted the fact that he was leased abroad for 3 years after playing for Heungkuk Life Insurance for 4 years, and that his rental period should also be counted as the period of his involvement with Heungkuk Life Insurance.
The conflict between the two sides was referred to the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB). In response, FIVB △According to the FIVB international transfer regulations, the original club is Heungkuk Life Insurance in the 2013-2014 season △Fenerbahche has to pay a transfer fee of 228,750 euros, the upper limit, and Heungkuk Life Insurance can’t stop Kim Yeon-kyung’s move after that. None △ If Kim Yeon-kyung does not sign a new contract with Heungkuk Life Insurance after the 2013-2014 season, the final decision was made that the original club would disappear for the next season.
At the time, Kim Yeon-kyung was in a strong position to the point of saying, “If FA qualification is not recognized, the national team will also retire.” Although FIVB raised Kim Yeon-kyung’s hand, he had to return to Heungkuk Life Insurance when he returned to Korea. And he returned to Heungkuk Life Insurance in 2020.
Return to Korea after 11 years… Lee Jae-young and Lee Da-young’s controversy over school violence → Frustration in winning
Kim Yeon-kyung, who had difficulty playing on the overseas stage due to Corona 19, returned to the domestic league in 2020 after 11 years.
Heungkuk Life Insurance, where Kim Yeon-kyung returned, had Lee Jae-young and Lee Da-young, ‘twin sisters’ who ran the highest stock price at the time. As Kim Yeon-kyung was added to Heungkuk Life Insurance, which was considered a candidate for the championship just by combining these, some observers said,’Isn’t it winning the unsilent set?’
In fact, Heungkuk Life Insurance showed ‘invincible’ by 12 points ahead of second place GS Caltex (37 points) until the 4th round of the season. The first place in the regular league was, of course, Heungkuk Life Insurance.
However, the situation was reversed when Lee Da-young posted on her SNS (social network service), “I’m going to explode everything.”
As a result of this article, the controversy over school violence (school violence) by sisters Lee Jae-young and Lee Da-young spread, and as they were prevented from playing, Heungkuk Life Insurance handed over the top spot in the regular league to GS Caltex. Even in the championship match, he could not overcome the wall of GS Caltex.
Since Kim Yeon-kyung played a big role in the offense and defense by ranking 1st in scoring among domestic players, 1st in overall attack and sub overall, and 5th in dig, there was no choice but to be left with regret. Fortunately during his misfortune, he was recognized for his worth by receiving the 2020-21 KOVO V-League regular league MVP.
Sudden resignation of the manager during the season… From road construction to reverse sweep
Kim Yeon-kyung, who briefly left for China in 2021, returned to Heungkuk Life Insurance again in the 2022-2023 season.
Under the direction of coach Kwon Soon-chan, Kim Yeon-kyung was leading Heungkuk Life Insurance’s second place in the regular league as a senior team member. Although Hyundai E&C was in first place, it was in a situation where it could aim for first place at any time, such as defeating Hyundai E&C 3-1 in the third round.
However, on January 2nd, manager Kwon Soon-chan was suddenly sacked. Director Kim Yeo-il also resigned. At the time, Heungkuk Life Insurance said, “It was inevitably decided to break up with coach Kwon Soon-chan because it did not match the direction the club wanted to go, and the general manager also decided to resign together.”
Heungkuk Life Insurance was shaken by the shocking news. In an interview with KBS, coach Kwon even revealed that there was a top-level intervention in the selection of players. Coach Kwon said, “The starting lineup came down via text message before the game,” and “when he refused, he was informed to step down.”
In response, Kim Yeon-kyung, along with Kim Hae-ran, revealed through a media interview, “The theory of player appointment intervention is true. 메이저놀이터
In a situation where the team was confused, such as continuing issues related to the manager, Kim Yeon-kyung had a dramatic reunion with coach Marcello Abondanza, who coached her at Fenerbahce. As the internal issues were settled, Heungkuk Life Insurance rose to first place in the regular league.
However, Heungkuk Life Insurance failed to achieve a combined championship. He had a 100% chance of winning by winning the 1st and 2nd rounds of the championship match first, but was defeated by Korea Expressway Corporation with Catbell and Park Jung-ah at the forefront, ending up in second place in the championship match.
Kim Yeon-kyung, born in 1988, is already in her mid-thirties. However, he is still an ace with the best offense and receiving ability in the league.
Above all, Kim Yeon-kyung has overwhelming fan mobilization power. He sold out 19 times in the women’s division in the V-League regular season this season, 17 of which were Heungkuk Life Insurance matches.
This is why attention is focused on where Kim Yeon-kyung, whose move itself is a hot topic, will choose as her next destination.
