There is no member who was with the first postseason of the founding.
On the 14th, one big news was delivered to the volleyball world. Na Kyung-bok, the ace of Woori Card, left Woori Card and wore the uniform of KB Insurance. KB Damage Insurance gave Na Gyeong-bok a total of 2.4 billion won over three years and succeeded in reinforcing his power.
An official from KB Insurance said in a phone call with MK Sports, “Of course, I can’t be together next season due to military service, but looking at the future, I saw him as a player who can significantly increase the team’s power. The coach also wanted Na Gyeong-bok, and he also thought about the fact that there was no free agent that he would be attracted to next season. This was a good opportunity, and luckily I was able to bring Na Gyeong-bok.”
Na Kyung-bok was the franchise star of Woori Card. Na Kyung-bok, who joined Woori Card in the 1st round of the 2015-16 season, made a splendid debut by receiving the Rookie of the Year award that year. Also in the 2019-20 season, he won the first MVP award in his debut and gave Woori Card 1st place in the regular league. In the 2019-20 season and the 2021-22 season, he was named in the Best 7 Outside Hitters category.
Woori Card has been going to spring volleyball since the 2018-19 season, and Na Gyeong-bok played a big role. Na Kyung-bok scored 3216 points in 266 matches, an attack success rate of 50.94%, and a receiving efficiency of 23.769% in Woori Card. In the 2022-23 season, he played 36 games and scored 603 points, an attack success rate of 51.12%, and a receiving efficiency of 22.01%, helping Woori Card to rise to third place in the regular league.
Na Kyung-bok’s KB Insurance line, Woori Card lost an ace. Of course, even if Na Kyung-bok stays on the team, he will not be with us next season. This is because Na Kyung-bok is scheduled to enlist in the military on the 24th. However, an ace who had been together for 8 years left, and a player who had been with the team during its heyday transferred. The transfer of Na Kyung-bok, who seemed likely to walk the path of the Woori Card franchise, will come as a shock to Woori Card fans.
Now, in the 2018-19 season, there is not a single player left on Woori Card who played the first spring volleyball. In the 2018-19 season, Woori Card successfully entered the postseason for the first time since its founding by climbing to 3rd place in the regular league with Shin Young-chul as head coach. Since then, Woori Card has consistently maintained its top spot. In the 2019-2020 season, he took first place in the regular league, and in the 2020-21 season, he achieved the feat of finishing runner-up in the championship.
Coach Shin Young-chul made changes to the team by constantly trying trades to reinforce his strength. Outside hitters Hwang Kyung-min, Han Seong-jeong, Na Gyeong-bok, Choi Hyun-kyu, Kim Jeong-hwan, middle blockers Koo Do-hyeon, Yun Bong-woo, Kim Si-hoon, Woo Sang-jo, Park Jin-woo, setters Kim Kwang-guk, Yoo Kwang-woo, Ha Seung-woo, Noh Jae-wook, and Shin Young-chul’s Woori Cards as liberos. These are domestic players who received guidance in the first season of their debut.
In the midst of active trade attempts, the players who had been with coach Shin Young-chul in the first season left one by one. Hwang Gyeong-min, Han Seong-jeong, Woo Sang-jo, and Park Jin-woo are at KB Insurance, Koo Do-hyeon, Noh Jae-wook, Shin Dong-kwang, and Lee Sang-wook are at Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, Kim Kwang-guk-Ha Seung-woo are at Korea Electric Power Corporation, and Yoo Kwang-woo are at Korean Air. All other players are taking off their uniforms and unfolding a new volleyball life. As the first spring volleyball member of the founding, Na Kyung-bok, who remained with Woori Card until the end, went to KB Insurance for a challenge. There are currently no members who were with the 2018-19 season.
Our cards now have to go into a new layout. Head coach Shin Young-chul is a leader who has produced solid results despite frequent trades. Woori Card entered the postseason for the first time since its founding, won first place in the regular league, and advanced to the championship game. He is a director who is writing the history of Woori Card.
Just because Na Kyung-bok left,메이저사이트 it doesn’t mean that the power of Woori Card is going down. There is Kim Ji-han, who showed off his potential last season, and Song Hee-chae, an airlifter. On the middle blocker side, Lee Sang-hyun, Kim Wan-jong, and Park Jun-hyeok, as well as national middle blocker Kim Jae-hwi, are preparing to return after surgery. Other young players also have the power to explode at any time under the magic of Shin Young-cheol.
With the transfer of Na Kyung-bok, there is no member who sang the first Jangchung’s spring song. What will our card look like next year? Can coach Shin Young-chul, nicknamed ‘Spring Volleyball Preacher’, lead Woori Card into spring volleyball next season?
