The Woori Card men’s professional volleyball team, which has reorganized its roster to the level of a rebuilding team, has surprised the volleyball world with two straight wins to open the season.

Led by head coach Shin Young-cheol, Woori Card swept the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League men’s game against Hyundai Capital 3-0 (25-17 25-19 26-24) at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on April 18.

After defeating last season’s last-place Samsung Fire in the first game, the team swept the runner-up Hyundai Capital.

There were many expectations that the team would struggle at the beginning of the season. The team was expected to struggle at the beginning of the season because all of its main players, including Na Kyung-bok, Hwang Seung-bin, and Song Hee-chae, left the team. Han Sung-jung, Song Myung-geun, and Park Jin-woo have been added to the roster, but the team is still struggling to find its footing.

Especially foreign player Matej Kok (registered name Matej) is powerful. The Slovenian is a newcomer to the V-League, but he has already adapted well. He scored 29 points in game one and 27 points in game two to lead the team to victory.토토사이트

Japanese Asian middle blocker Issei Otake (real name Issei) has also quickly integrated into the team. The 6-foot-2 player has been an energizing force with her gritty play and consistent scoring.

The performance of setter Han Tae-joon, born in 2004, has also been remarkable. Selected in the first round of the 2022-2023 rookie draft, Han played in 18 matches last season, gaining experience and earning a starting spot this season after the departure of Hwang Seung-bin. Han leads the offense with a steady yet bold toss that is uncharacteristic of a second-year player.

Woori Card’s next opponent is KB Insurance. While the previous two games were played at their home stadium, Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul, this game will be played at Uijeongbu Gymnasium. It will be interesting to see if Woori Card can continue their early season surge in their first away game of the season.
