Kim Yeon-kyung met with director Kim Yeo-il of Heungkuk Life Insurance in Suwon today (6th) and stamped the one-year contract.

Since entering Japan in 2009, he returned to Turkey and China as an elemental team in 11 years.

The annual salary is 350 million won, which is about 20% of the annual salary received in Turkey.

The club first offered a maximum salary of 450 million won and an option of 200 million won for salary caps, but Kim Yeon-kyung voluntarily cuts the annual salary of 100 million won by prescribing the premise that the club will contract with all other fellow juniors. He said he would not accept the option.

[Lee Young-ha/Heung-kuk Life Secretary-General: (Kim Yeon-kyung) made a big decision saying,'You only need to give me the salary that other players can avoid.'

As soon as I made my debut in 2005, I won the combined championship and MVP. 4 With the return of the world's top striker, Kim Yeon-kyung, who won three regular league championships and won three championship trophies during the season, Heungkuk Life has built the strongest power ever.

In addition, the twin sisters Lee Jae-young and Lee Da-young and Yeon-kyung Kim will be able to keep breathing, so it is expected to have a positive effect on the national team aiming for the Tokyo Olympic medal next year.
