We plan to adjust accordingly. Park Hye-jin will likely be the main setter.” He revealed his plans for the new season.

Tutku Bourges said, “I’m really excited to play with Kim Yeon-kyung, who has been my idol since I was young. It’s like a dream. I can’t even explain how I feel. I saw Kim Yeon-kyung playing for Fenerbahce. I might not be able to speak when I meet Kim Yeon-kyung.” expressed emotions.
