‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung made unforgettable memories for the rest of her life on the stage of the V-League All-Star Game, which she stepped on in 14 years. She complained of fatigue due to her hectic schedule for two days until her pre-event, but showed her professionalism by not losing her smile.
Kim Yeon-kyung became the MVP of the women’s division at the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League All-Star Game held at Incheon Samsan Gymnasium on the 29th. After her 2005 pro debut, she had a feel-good Sunday night as she was named one of her stars in her first All-Star Game.
It was Kim Yeon-kyung who received the hottest cheers at the Samsan Gymnasium where 6446 people gathered. The moment Kim Yeon-kyung appeared on her court, cheers poured out, and when she performed a dance ceremony with her teammates after scoring, the atmosphere in the stadium heated up to the point of reminiscent of a K-pop concert hall.
Her Kim Yeon-kyung’s unique cool and refreshing wit also shone. Starting with “Surely I knew I’d be number one in the All-Star voting” to “Why did I get MVP?”, she made her fans laugh at every official interview.
Her active fan service led to the saying ‘Yeonkyung Kim’. Prior to the start of the official event for the All-Star Game, she made a surprise appearance at the ‘Life 4 Cuts’ instant photo booth in Samsan Gymnasium and had a good time with her fans.
Due to her limited time, she couldn’t be with her fans for a long time, but she, Kim Yeon-kyung, left ‘four cuts of life’ with her fans with all her heart and sincerity. It was a pleasant experience for her to experience for the first time as an individual of Kim Yeon-kyung.
Kim Yeon-kyung said, “I also took ‘Four Cuts of Life’ for the first time. I honestly told the fans that it was the first time I took a picture too.” I had a great time doing V,” he laughed.
He also joked, “From the All-Star Game next year, I hope the overall time will be slightly reduced from the player’s point of view.” I also enjoyed taking pictures with the fans,” he said.
However, as the All-Star Game schedule lasted longer than expected this year, he complained of physical difficulties. The Korean Volleyball Federation prepared fully for this All-Star Game, which was held in 100% spectator position for the first time in four years since the 2018-2019 season. 메이저놀이터
Unlike before, the composition of the main game of the All-Star Game was also interesting, as it was divided into M-star (male players born before 1996, female players born before 1997) and Z-star teams to create a confrontation between generations.
Kim Yeon-kyung said, “There is a physical difference between the M generation and the Z generation. The Z-star team took pictures in the locker room after the All-Star game and had energy left, but our M-star team got tired and went home quickly.” I poured out so much that it would be fortunate if I didn’t get sick. Still, if I’m selected for the All-Star game again next year, I have to work hard.”
