It was a moment when Korea’s chances of advancing to the semifinals became small.
Kim Yeon-kyung, who broadcast the Vietnam War as a KBS commentator, also seemed shocked.
Kim Yeon-kyung left the stadium without leaving any comment after the game the previous day.
However, ahead of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games women’s volleyball match between Korea and Nepal held at the Changqian Campus gymnasium of Hangzhou Normal University, China on the 2nd, Kim Yeon-kyung came down to the stands before the game as if to cheer up the juniors, called their names one by one, waved their hands, and said, “Cheer up! “He cheered.
On this day, the national team succeeded in calming down the mood by winning against Nepal with a set score of 3-0.
Kim Yeon-kyung met with reporters after the game on the 2nd and said, “The most important thing for the national team right now is to raise the mood.
The team atmosphere was good before the Vietnam game yesterday, but it seemed like they were mentally unable to overcome something.
I hope they overcome it well.
“I do it,” he said.
While Kim Yeon-kyung encouraged her juniors, she did not forget to encourage volleyball fans as well.
He said, “Please don’t criticize our players too much,” and added, “I hope we can all accept the reality and think together about how to create a good environment for future generations.”
When asked about Park Jeong-ah (Pepper Savings Bank), who showed a sluggish performance on this day, he said, “Park Jeong-ah must be having a hard time both physically and mentally.”
He added, “Because she did not play much (in the game itself), her chemistry and performance with her teammates were not fully improved.
“It’s the same,” he said.
Park Jeong-ah repeatedly committed serve and receive errors in the first set against Nepal and was replaced by Pyo Seung-ju (IBK Industrial Bank of Korea).
Kim Yeon-kyung, who was talking about Park Jeong-ah, pointed out a ‘systemic problem’.
He said, “I feel like the six starting players (for the national team) are not clear,” and added, “I think it would have been better if we had fixed them to some extent, given them opportunities regardless of their performance, and focused on improving their condition.”
