After concluding the 2022-2023 season, Kim Yeon-kyung decided to step on the court as a player in the next season after contemplating the extension of his active service and retirement. After his professional debut in the V-League, he obtained FA qualification for the first time, and the possibility of transferring to another club was predicted, but Kim Yeon-kyung’s choice was Heungkuk Life Insurance.
Heungkuk Life Insurance is in the position that director Abondanza’s courtship had a great influence on Kim Yeon-kyung’s stay. The two have good memories of working together at Turkiye Fenerbahce in the past to win the league twice and top the cup competition.
When director Abon Danza was appointed as the head of Heungkuk Life Insurance last February, Kim Yeon-kyung was delighted, saying, “A world-famous coach has arrived,” and showed strong trust in his leadership.

Heungkuk Life Insurance also has a strong desire to win in a situation where it has not been able to reach the top of the V-League for the past 4 years since the 2018-2019 season. As they have world-class masters and the best players of all time in the next season, they plan to start preparing for the next season after completing a certain reinforcement of power.
Among the women’s FA qualification players announced by the Korea Volleyball Federation (KOVO) on the 9th, there are many players who have not yet signed a contract, such as Kim Su-ji, Hwang Min-kyung, Park Jung-ah, and Bae Yu-na.
An official from Heungkuk Life Insurance explained, “We are considering various things to proceed with the recruitment of an external free agent.”
In addition, he added, “As for the recruitment of external free agents, coach Abondanza told the club that reinforcement was particularly necessary, and Kim Yeon-kyung also expressed the need to recruit additional players.”
