Volleyball Empress Kim Yeon-kyung, who returned to the domestic stage, made a strong comeback in the cup competition.
He led the team to victory by easily filling the void of colleagues who left due to the corona virus.
The Suncheon Gymnasium, where the opening match between Heungkuk Life Insurance and IBK led by Kim Hee-jin, where Yeon-kyung Kim returned, was heated.
About 3,800 full spectators came in until standing, and they enjoyed volleyball in midsummer.

Heungkuk Life's 5 players left before the game due to COVID-19, so only the remaining 8 players, including Kim Yeon-kyung, wore masks to play.
In fact, it was expected that he would be inferior due to the burden of physical strength because he could not afford to replace players, but Kim Yeon-kyung, who returned after a year, showed off a strong presence.
Kim Yeon-kyung made strong spikes across the front and rear, and also showed its true value in stable receiving and degross defense.
He encouraged his juniors over the same age and even served as the commander of the court.
Kim Yeon-kyung played full-time until the 4th set and scored 18 points, leading Heungkuk Life's 3-1 victory.

Because so many people came.]
Heungkuk Life Insurance predicted a rebound this season due to the return effect of volleyball star Yeon-kyung Kim, who even broke through the bad news of Corona.
