The two teams engaged in a close match from the first set. In the midst of back and forth, Woori Card ran away 17-14 with Park Jun-hyeok’s blocking and Na Gyeong-bok’s open attack. However, Hyundai Capital also succeeded in reversing with Jeon Kwang-in’s blocking after making a tie at 19-19.

With foreign striker Riverman Agamez missing due to injury, Woori Card launched a counterattack with national striker Na Gyeong-bok. In addition to this, Kim Ji-han’s three consecutive goals were added to balance after winning the second set.
However, in the third set, the match was tilted. Hyundai Capital completely blocked Woori Card’s attack with its unique height. He recorded a whopping 8 blocks in that set alone. As the score gap widened, Woori Card called a large number of key players to the bench and prepared for the next set.
Woori Card, which reorganized the line while conserving the stamina of the main players, tried to counterattack again in the 4th set. However, this time too, Hyundai Capital broke the spirit of Woori Card as Park Sang-ha, Jeon Kwang-in, and Heo Soo-bong’s blocking broke out one after another.
In 22-20, Lee Si-woo’s sub ace was practically on the verge of victory, and the opponent’s Beom-sil and Heo Soo-bong’s time difference attack finished the game.

However, there was a separate MVP of the game that day. It was Lee Hyun-seung, a 21-year-old rookie setter who made his first start in his pro debut.
Lee Hyun-seung took the lead in the attack, boldly trying various attacks such as time lapse and fast attack, despite the burden of being the first starter in his debut. Also in the 3rd set, he blocked Kim Ji-han’s quick open and scored his first professional debut.
Lee Hyun-seung, who was a promising player enough to compete in the World Youth Championships during his college days, entered the professional stage after being nominated by Hyundai Capital in the rookie draft this season. I definitely took a picture of my eyes in .
Lee Hyun-seung’s strengths are not only his height of 190 cm, but also his courageous game management. Attention is focusing on whether Lee Hyun-seung, who will be taught under coach Choi Tae-woong, who was active as the best setter during his active career, will grow into a large setter as expected.
