I wonder if the team can change like this in a short period of time. Hyundai Capital is raising hopes for spring volleyball by winning all five games after changing its coach. 

At the center is setter Kim Myeong-gwan (27).

Hyundai Capital won with a set score of 3-1 (23-25, 25-23, 25-23, 25-18) in a classic match against Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance in the 4th round of the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League Men’s Division held at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on the 7th. reaped.

Kim Myung-kwan’s presence stood out as he evenly distributed toss to strikers such as Ahmed (30 points), Jeon Gwang-in, and Heo Soo-bong (14 points). He succeeded in 55 of 76 sets, showing stable toss and coordination with a set success rate of 72.37%. 지울프-토토

After coach Choi Tae-woong stepped down, Hyundai Capital, which switched to acting manager Jin Soon-ki starting with the Korea Electric Power Corporation on the 24th of last month

rebounded sharply with all five wins. All 5 games were 3 point games. Hyundai Capital, which had 4 wins, 13 losses, and 16 points before the manager change

immediately accumulated 31 points with 9 wins, 13 losses, and jumped two places from 6th place to 4th place.

Regarding this dramatic change, Jin Soon-ki, acting director of Hyundai Capital, said, “I think it was a matter of timing. “There have been many controversies and rumors

but these are stories of people who create words,” he said. “Heo Soo-bong changed his position from an apologetic to an outsider.” If I had practiced in the off-seaso

I would have shown my skills faster, but it took time to adapt after the Asian Games. 

It started to rise from the 3rd round Woori Card match. It took about two and a half rounds to get used to it. “Jeon Kwang-in was also in rehabilitation due to an injury and was not able to perform well, but the timing was right for him to get into shape and come back,” he said.

Director Jin continued, “Kim Myeong-gwan was originally a good player. “It’s time for the players to come together,” he said, singling out Kim Myeong-gwan, who is active as the starting setter. He said, “He may be shy and introverted, but he is a capable player. He keeps saying ‘good job, good job’. “He keeps saying that, so it seems like he’s trying to do better,” said Acting Director Jin.

Myeong-gwan Kim also agreed. Kim Myeong-gwan, who entered the interview room after winning that day, said, “I can’t help but feel good when I hear praise. “I try to do better to receive praise,” he said. “Even when we were losing on the court, the players talked to each other a lot, which gave the team strength. “Even when there are toss misses, the strikers are handling more, and I think we are having a good game because we are smiling at each other,” he said.

He continued, “(Moon) Seong-min said during the meeting, let’s make use of each other by talking about each other’s strengths instead of talking about each other’s weaknesses. By thinking about the advantages, even if I make a mistake, it doesn’t feel like a big deal and I can change quickly. “My confidence has definitely increased,” he said. Moon Seong-min also said about Kim Myeong-gwan, “His facial expression has become much brighter. He looks confident. He praised, “Sometimes he attacks confidently and seems to work hard without paying attention to keep the team spirit alive.”

Kim Myung-kwan, a graduate of Kyonggi University who was selected by KEPCO as the first overall rookie draft pick in the 2019-2020 season, was a rare tall (195 cm) setter prospect. On November 13, 2020, he came to Hyundai Capital as compensation for a large trade involving top middle blocker Shin Young-seok and was given the opportunity to play as a starting player, but his growth was slow. As he looked more and more withdrawn, I wondered if he was stagnating, but as his mindset changed, his performances began to come out. Over the course of his latest five-game winning streak, he is proving why he was the No. 1 overall pick.

Kim Myeong-gwan, who is scheduled to enlist in the military at the end of this season, said, “I don’t want to be told that I’m neglecting myself because I’m going to the military, so I’m working harder,” and added, “Now that I have the strength to overcome the crisis, I’m looking forward to the second half of the season even more.” Hyundai Capital, which suddenly jumped to 4th place, narrowed the gap with 3rd place Korean Air (12 wins, 9 losses, 38 points) to 7 points, raising hopes for spring volleyball.
