‘This is how we meet’
On the afternoon of the 21st, Hwaseong Indoor Gymnasium in Gyeonggi Province hosted the first round of the 2023-2024 Dodram V League Women’s Division between IBK and Hyundai E&C.
Before this season, Hwang Min-kyung “Minky” became a free agent and donned the IBK jersey at Hyundai E&C, while Kim Joo-hyang became a compensation player for Hwang Min-kyung and went to her home team, Hyundai E&C, where she played from 2017 to 2019.
Before the game, the two didn’t have time to meet during warm-ups due to the opening ceremony, so they didn’t have a chance to properly greet their former teammates.
