Prior to the opening of the 2022-2023 season by the OK Financial Group in the V-League men’s division, the primary goal was to ‘endure until the 3rd round’. It was intended to bet on a real match from the 4th round, when the main players returned.
The resources that were considered the best players are outside hitter (left) Song Myeong-geun (30) and setter Lee Min-gyu (31). Those who started military service side by side after the 2020-2021 season were discharged last month and joined the team.
Lee Min-kyu and Song Myeong-geun are founding members of OK Financial Group. Together with Song Hee-chae (Woori Card), they were called the ‘Gyeonggi University 3 Musketeers’ and joined Rush & Cash (now OK Financial Group) through the 2013-2014 rookie draft. The skills of those who dominated the university stage also worked in the pros. The 2014-2015 season and the 2015-2016 season opened the team’s golden era as the main player in winning the championship game in a row.
OK Financial Group endured well until the third round as originally planned. With 30 points, it ranked third after Korean Air (44 points) and Hyundai Capital (36 points). Anticipation for their return has grown even more. Song Myeong-keun played Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance in the 4th round (January 8), and Lee Min-gyu played Hyundai Capital in the 5th round (February 1).
However, the results did not come out as expected토토사이트. This is because the body is not yet formed. He also needed time to get along with his colleagues. The team fell into a quagmire on a four-game losing streak. He was driven to a position where he could not be optimistic about advancing to the postseason. The 5th round match against Woori Card, which took place in the home room on the 8th, was desperate.
Fortunately, OK Financial Group won 3-2 after a full set match. Song Myeong-geun and Lee Min-gyu also contributed greatly to the team’s victory. Song Myeong-geun scored 15 points, the most since his return. He showed concentration in each match and caught 3 blocks. He actively participated in receiving as well as left and right attacks. Lee Min-kyu played a full set and showed a stable toss. He completed 43 sets, the most since his return. He also sent a positive signal that he was in sync with Leo, a foreign player who scored 36 points.
Seok Jin-wook, director of OK Financial Group, sighed. More than anything, it is nice to see Song Myeong-geun and Lee Min-gyu come to life little by little. Director Seok said, “Song Myeong-geun was shaken because he couldn’t work well with Lee Min-gyu. It’s getting better little by little now. The two have been working together since college, so it will get better.”
The attackers of OK Financial Group are in a state of emergency. Jo Jae-seong was implicated in military service corruption and left, and Cha Ji-hwan injured his knee. Song Myeong-geun’s shoulders grew heavier. He said, “I feel a sense of responsibility,” and pledged his last-minute performance.
