In the aftermath of the new Coronavirus Infectious Disease (Corona19), a huge trade broke out in the men's club of the professional volleyball V League, which ended the season early and began preparing for the next season. Woori Card and Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance conducted a 4 to 3 trade. The two teams announced on the 29th that they had agreed to a trade involving seven players.
Both Woori Card and Samsung Fire & Marine have included the main players in the trade. Woori Card sends four members, including former setter Noh Jae-wook (28), veteran backup setter Kim Kwang-guk (33), left Hwang Kyung-min (24), and center Kim Si-hoon (33). Instead, Ryu Yoon-sik (31, left), Song Hee-chae (28, left), and Lee Ho-gun (24, setter) are transferred from Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance to Woori Card.
In fact, it's a trade that changes the team's framework. Woori Card boldly gave up the main setter, who led the team to the first place in the first regular league, while making a big success with 11.21 pieces per set this season. It was used boldly as a trade card when Noh Jae-wook was confirmed to join the army and was unable to play for the next two seasons. In addition to this, I made an attractive package, including left-back Hwang Kyung-min and left Ryu Yoon-sik and Song Hee-chae at once. Among them, Song Hee-chae is scheduled to be enlisted, but Ryu Yoon-sik has been enlisted on the 16th and can be used immediately. It is a pledge to maximize the synergy of Na Kyung-bok (26) and foreign striker who have risen to MVP this season after stabilizing the weakness of the team by including Ryu Yoon-sik in the main lineup. Woori Card plans to fill the gap when Song Hee-chae is discharged when Na Kyung-bok joins the service two years later.
The setter position that sent both former Noh Jae-wook and veteran Kim Kwang-kook together will endure the rivalry of Ha Seung-woo (25) and Lee Ho-gun, who brought him to the trade. How Shin Young-cheol, a former “Legend” setter, trains young setters is expected to become a watershed not only for this trade, but also for the whole of Woori Card.
Samsung Fire, which is in the midst of changing generations, cannot use Noh Jae-wook right away, but instead embraces Hwang Kyung-min. Hwang Kyung-min is a card to fill the gap between Park Chul-woo (35) who transferred to KEPCO under a free contract. He was the third option following Na Kyung-bok and Felipe (32) this season, but was ranked 14th in the league with 320 points. If you are limited to only Korean players, you have already proved that you are already in the 8th place, and that you are already a good enough team leader. It is expected to maximize synergy by joining Noh Jae-wook, the league's top setter, two years after the generation change.
