Hwang Min-Kyung and Kim Joo-Hyang face each other for the first time after ‘switching uniforms’… Nervous battle ahead of video judging?

‘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.

Hwang Min-kyung Hwang / Korea Volleyball Federation is disappointed after the video replay shows that Abe Crombie’s defense failed.

 In the first set of the match, with IBK leading 8-4 and Hyundai E&C’s MOMA attacking, IBK’s Abe Crombie went for a dig, but Hyundai E&C’s head coach Kang Sung-hyung requested a video review of the defensive success or failure.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the court, Hwang Min-kyung and Kim Joo-hyang battled it out over the net.  Hwang Min-kyung made a big move to assure Kim Joo-hyang of a defensive success, while Kim Joo-hyang shook her head and said it was a defensive failure.  Moments later, the video replay showed that the defense had failed, and Hwang Min-kyung hung her head in disappointment.메이저사이트

On the other hand, IBK, which lost its second game in a row, was led by Abe Crombie with 29 points and Pyo Seung-ju with 19 points, but it was not enough to prevent the team from losing.

Hyundai E&C’s Kim Joo-hyang, who switched uniforms, had five points and IBK’s Hwang Min-kyung had three points.

Meanwhile, IBK head coach Kim Ho-cheol said of Hwang Min-kyung, “She can’t play a full match because of the after-effects of her modern knee surgery.”
