Middle blocker Bae You-na (34, 182cm), who led the Korea Expressway Corporation to win the championship in the women’s professional volleyball division, is dreaming of another 0% miracle.
In the 2022-2023 season, the Dodram V-League Women’s Division Heungkuk Life Insurance overturned the 0% probability and won the championship in the 3 best 5 championship match. The team that lost the first and second games had never won before, but the Korea Expressway Corporation won all of them from the third game, creating a miraculous reverse sweep.
Bae Yuna, who played an active role in winning the championship, is having a busy schedule amidst a lot of interest after the season. On the 24th, he met with reporters at the 2022-2023 season Dodram V-League Korean Air and Korea Expressway Corporation championship joint celebration held at the Grand Hyatt Incheon Grand Ballroom in Yeongjong-do, Jung-gu, Incheon and reported on the current situation.
As it was such a dramatic win, Bae Yoo-na still didn’t seem to realize it. He said, “I still can’t believe that I won the championship, but after coming to today’s celebration, I think I can feel it.” She continued, “She had no time to rest due to her busy schedule such as events and interviews, but when she rested at home, she spent time with her husband.” I want to go,” he said.
Since it is a place to celebrate the championship, we asked about the most memorable moment of the season. In response, Bae Yoo-na said, “Every moment is memorable, but the most memorable moment was when I scored 15 points in the 5th set of the 5th game of the championship match and the celebration exploded.” I remembered.
The words left by the command tower ahead of the 5th game also touched Bae Yuna’s heart. She gave up both games 1 and 2, but the road construction team who took all games 3 and 4 and returned the game to the starting point had already left a strong impression. However, Kim Jong-min, head coach of the Korea Expressway Corporation, emphasized to the players, “Whether it remains in the memory or record depends on the 5th game.”
Stimulated by coach Kim’s famous words, the players lifted the championship trophy and produced a memorable scene that will remain in both memory and record. Bae Yoo-na said, “I don’t usually say things like that, but after the game, it was as the coach said.”
After the season, Bae Yoo-na obtained her fourth free agent (FA) qualification. In order to continue to accompany him, the main player in the championship, the Korea Expressway Corporation signed a contract with a total of 550 million won in annual compensation (440 million won in annual salary, 110 million won in options), the highest treatment for a middle blocker ever. 먹튀검증

As a result, there were love calls from other teams, but Bae Yoo-na considered road construction as the number one priority. He said, “There was a lot of afterglow of winning, and I had a lot of affection for the team,” he said.
