IBK tried to ‘voluntarily terminate’ Jo Song-hwa, who left the team twice due to a quarrel with coach Seo Nam-won and caused a stir as a disciplinary measure, but did not know the changed regulations and applied for a voluntary termination without the player’s consent .

Song-hwa Cho refused to write the consent form and wanted to return to the team, but the situation was twisted, but the club said that there was no change in the position that it could not be with Song-hwa Jo, and virtually announced his departure.

In addition, coach Sani Kim, who was about to leave the team, was appointed as acting coach in place of the sacked manager Namwon Seo, which drew criticism from the volleyball community and fans.

In the first match under Kim Sani’s acting coaching system, IBK succeeded in reversing the mood.

With Kim Ha-kyung’s stable ball distribution as the starting setter instead of Jo Song-hwa, four players including Rasem, Kim Hee-jin, Pyo Seung-ju, and Kim Joo-hyang scored double-digits and defeated Heungkuk Life with a set score of 3-0.

In the men’s division, OK Financial Group defeated Woori Card and took the lead with three consecutive wins.
