The expression of Kim Yeon-kyung, who came to interview Suhun, was dark. She was very surprised to hear from the reporters, “Acting manager Lee Young-soo will step down after this game.” Kim Yeon-kyung lamented, “I didn’t know the team at all,” and said, “I’m so embarrassed to hear that even the head coach is quitting.”
Heungkuk Life Insurance is reeling from the aftermath of the recent dismissal of manager Kwon Soon-chan (48). Heungkuk Life Insurance announced on the 2nd the news of the joint resignation of director Kwon Soon-chan and general manager Kim Yeo-il. The club expressed it as ‘resignation’, but it is a virtual hardship. The volleyball world was perplexed by the club’s decision as it passed the return point of the regular season in second place (42 points).
Lim Hyung-joon, the owner, said, “I decided to break up with coach Kwon Soon-chan inevitably because it did not match the direction the club wanted to go.”
On the other hand, there was a story that Heungkuk Life’s ‘upper line’ interfered with the appointment of players. Director Kwon Soon-chan also said in a phone call with Ilgan Sports, “There was a lot of talk about the appointment of players in the club. I didn’t listen.”
After Shin Yong-jun, the new head of Heungkuk Life Insurance, volunteered for a press conference before the game that day, he said, “There was a conflict between the manager and the manager about the operation of the game, not the appointment of players.” They thought that what they wanted was not to have Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena in the avant-garde. There was a difference (with the director) here, and it seems that a conflict occurred.”
Kim Yeon-kyung said, “There has been player intervention (from the top of the club) before. The players were all aware of it.” He said, “Many things can happen when the club runs the team, but this situation is difficult to understand. I hope this will never happen again.”
Kim Yeon-kyung is from a franchise star who joined Heungkuk Life Insurance in 2005-06 with the first overall nomination in the first round. Except for the period when he was active in overseas stages such as Japan, Turkey, and China, he only wore Heungkuk Life Insurance uniforms in the V-League. He said, “I wonder if there will ever be another team like this. It’s very surprising and unfortunate. I hope this never happens again.” He continued, “I am so ashamed of what has recently happened with Heungkuk Life Insurance.”
