Heungkuk Life Insurance, whose manager Kwon Soon-chan suddenly resigned, will play its first game as acting manager Lee Young-soo.
Heungkuk Life Insurance will play a home game against GS Caltex in the 4th round of the 2022-2023 Dodram V-League Women’s Division at Incheon Samsan World Gymnasium on the 5th. It is the first game of the 4th round after rounding the regular season halfway point in 2nd place with a current record of 14 wins, 4 losses and 42 points.
It is also the first game in the sudden absence of the command tower. On the 2nd, Heungkuk Life Insurance announced in the name of owner Lim Hyeong-joon, “We inevitably decided to part ways with coach Kwon Soon-chan because it did not match the direction the club wanted to go.” For the time being, head coach Lee Young-soo will lead the team instead of coach Kwon as acting manager.
The club expressed it as resignation, but it is actually hard. It’s a difficult decision to understand, coming at a time when the season was in good shape after coming in second place. In particular, it was a more difficult situation because it was a decision made after defeating first place Hyundai E&C in the last game of the third round on the 29th of last month and igniting the championship competition in earnest.
Players complained about this. It is known that veteran players such as ‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung met directly with the owner and said that they would even consider a boycott. The atmosphere of the team, which was aiming for the championship, has greatly subsided.
In a cluttered situation, it faces the difficult enemy GS Caltex. GS Caltex is currently in 5th place, three steps lower than Heungkuk Life Insurance, but has an advantage this season with 2 wins and 1 loss. In particular, in the recent 2nd and 3rd rounds, he has been showing a good trend by winning consecutive victories against Heungkuk Life Insurance. 메이저놀이터
GS Caltex, which is recording 25 points, is competing fiercely with Korea Expressway Corporation (3rd place) (26 points) and KGC Ginseng Corporation (25 points) in 4th place. They are walking on thin ice where the ranking changes according to the results of each game.
The recent bad news for Heungkuk Life could be an opportunity for GS Caltex. After Kang So-hui, the native main gun, returned from injury, he formed a solid triangular formation with Moma and Yoo Seo-yeon. Recently, while running for three consecutive wins, KGC Ginseng Corporation was caught on the 31st of last month, but we will challenge for victory once again against Heungkuk Life Insurance, which showed a strong performance this season.
On the other hand, Heungkuk Life Insurance needs to reverse the atmosphere that has subsided by avenging the defeats it has suffered in two recent head-to-head matches. At the point of just passing the halfway point, it could fall into an out of control downtrend. It remains to be seen whether Heungkuk Life Insurance, where the unexpected variable of director resignation occurred, can safely overcome difficulties.
