‘Founding member’ Kwak Myung-woo’s trade shock

I worked for one team for a long period of 10 years. During that time, the team name changed twice. And I changed my uniform in one day. Fans expressed considerable shock at the somewhat sudden farewell.

On the 19th, OK Financial Group, a professional volleyball team, announced through an official press release that it had made a trade to Hyundai Capital, giving away setter Kwak Myung-woo and receiving middle blocker Cha Young-seok and a first-round pick in the 24-25 season rookie draft.

Kwak Myung-woo is a so-called ‘founding member’ who was selected by OK Financial Group (Rush & Cash at the time) as the first pick in the second round of the 2013-14 season. He started as a backup to captain Lee Min-gyu, rose to become a starter, and never left the team even after becoming a free agent. He played for one team for 10 years and helped OK Financial Group win two consecutive championships in the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons.

In addition, in the 23-24 season, when the command system was changed to coach Ogino Massage, he played in 34 games and showed stable management, contributing greatly to advancing to the championship game for the first time in 8 years.

Before the trade was implemented, OK Financial Group’s setter team consisted of Lee Min-gyu, Kwak Myeong-woo, Kang Jeong-min, and Park Tae-seong.

However, Lee Min-gyu was unable to play the entire 23-24 season due to a leg injury. Also, as a result, libero Buyong-chan took over as temporary captain. Lee Min-gyu’s off-season training and rehabilitation status is not clearly known, and his condition still needs to be monitored further.

Kang Jung-min was selected as the 3rd pick in the 2nd round of the 21-22 season and played as a backup, playing in 31 games and 63 sets in the 23-24 regular league season. Rookie Park Tae-seong joined OK Financial Group as the 3rd pick in the first round of the 23-24 season and played in 18 games and 33 sets as of the regular league in the 23-24 season.

Now that Kwak Myung-woo is missing, rookie-level players must build new chemistry from the beginning.

OK Financial Group’s SNS was engulfed in protest comments from fans after conducting a trade between Kwak Myung-woo and Cha Young-seok.

One fan said, “(Kwak Myung-woo) is a player who endured injuries throughout the season in order to play spring volleyball. I was happy because I felt like I grew up with the players during the championship game this season, but think about why the fans were so angry.” “He pointed out. Another fan raised his voice and asked, “How can they treat founding members like this?”
