“We’ll show you the difference.”
South Korean volleyball had its worst performance at the Hangzhou Asian Games. Men’s volleyball in particular suffered its first no-medal performance in 61 years. They finished seventh, their lowest finish ever. When asked why we should watch the V-League, we can only shake our heads.
Despite the disappointing year, players across the 온라인카지노 V-League are looking to bounce back in the new season.
The Dodram 2023-2024 V-League, now in its 20th season, will kick off on April 14. The managers and key players of the seven teams attended the V-League Men’s Media Day at the Rivera Hotel in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul, on the 11th to show their determination.
Korean Air is by far the favorite to win the title. Korean Air recorded a triple treble last season, winning the cup, regular season, and championship.
Korean Air’s goal this season is to win the overall title.
“We have a great opportunity to become the first team in the V-League to win four consecutive titles,” said Korean Air head coach Tommy Tilikainen. We will do our best to make history.”
The top two contenders are KEPCO and OK Financial Group. When asked about the favorites to end Korean Air’s four-game losing streak, four of the six teams other than Korean Air named KEPCO and OK Financial Group.
“They’re a more stable team because they haven’t changed their roster and they have a good libero (Ryohei Iga),” said Woori Card head coach Shin Young-cheol. Ryohei has experience as a starting libero for the Panasonic Panthers in Japan’s professional volleyball league. She is known for her reliable reception and defense.
A volleyball fan asked the players why they should watch the V-League this season and what to expect.
“As a player who participated in an international tournament, I was disappointed that we didn’t perform as well as I expected, but I think the fans were more disappointed,” said Korean Air’s Han, a setter and member of the Hangzhou Asian Games. “I think we need to show more improvement in the V-League and do our best to give the fans faith in us.”
Hyundai Capital’s Heo Su-bong said, “It was a tournament where we felt and experienced a lot. We apologize to our fans for not performing well,” he said, promising to show our fans a winning game in the new season. Seo Jae-duk of the KEPCO also said, “We have a lot of work to do as we have been lacking in international competitions.”
It will be interesting to see if the “Asia Quarter” system, which was introduced to the V-League for the first time this season, will make a difference. Six new Asian players from Japan, Taiwan, Mongolia, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines will take the court. The battle for the top spot is expected to intensify as teams try to fill in the gaps.
KB Insurance and Samsung Fire, who finished at the bottom of the standings last season, are determined to improve. “Last season, Samsung Fire was below us in terms of performance. We will put Samsung Fire under us this time as well,” he said emphatically.
The V-League Men’s Division kicks off on Thursday with a match between defending champion Korean Air and second-place Hyundai Capital at Gyeyang Gymnasium in Incheon.
