The Heungkuk Life Pink Spiders defeated the Pepper Savings Bank AI Peppers 3-0 in straight sets (25-19, 26-24, 29-27) in a regular season match of the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League Women’s Division at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon on Nov. 22.
Kim is considered by many to be the best player in the history of women’s volleyball. She won the 2014 Asian Games and reached the quarterfinals of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She’s now a veteran, but she’s still going strong as an ace for her team, Heungkuk Sinsa.
On this day, Kim Yeon-kyung led her team to victory. She kept racking up the points in the second and third sets. This, coupled with a service ace from her best friend from elementary and high school, Kim Soo-ji, led to a set tiebreaker and a 3-0 sweep. Kim not only scored 20 points, but also contributed on defense, earning her first team honors in the win.
As impressive as Kim’s skills were, her popularity was equally impressive. With 5,152 spectators at the stadium for Heungkuk Sinsaeng’s home opener, it wasn’t hard to find Kim’s fans.
And not only that. Kim’s popularity was also evident on the way to the stadium. At Samsan Gymnasium Station, the subway station directly in front of Incheon Samsan Gymnasium, you could see supportive banners such as “The Legend Never Ends” set up by fans. The same was true at major bus stops around the stadium.
Kim didn’t disappoint those fans either. After the game, many fans gathered in the gymnasium and along the walkway to the buses to catch a glimpse of Kim. Kim showed good fan service by signing autographs and responding to photo requests.
One of the greatest players in volleyball history is still showing her class. The superstar’s popularity is still exploding as she continues to give back to her fans.
