Kim Yeon-kyung will win the match against Korea and Japan, and feel great interest again.
Kim Yeon-kyung (33, Shanghai) of the women’s volleyball team, who led the dramatic victory over Korea-Japan, responded that she was surprised by the huge interest.
“I got a lot of calls (after Korea and Japan),” he said. “I heard that all the players around me contacted me. Looking at the attention of many people, I feel that this is the Olympics. “I feel pressured, but I will shake it off and impress you once again with good performance.”
South Korea, led by head coach Stefano Lavarini, lost to Serbia in Group A at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics at Ariake Arena on the 2nd with a set score of 0-3 (18-25 17-25 15-25).
South Korea (3 wins and 2 losses), which had already confirmed third place in the group, was preparing for the quarterfinals tournament by giving Kim a break in the third set. Kim Yeon-kyung scored nine points while playing up to the second set.
After finishing all the group matches, Kim Yeon-kyung said, “It’s done as planned,” adding, “With one game left, I have about a day to spare as I confirm the quarterfinals.” “We’re going to play in the quarterfinals the day after tomorrow, and we’ll focus on that.”
The quarterfinal opponent has yet to be decided. In Group B, the United States, Russia (ROC), Italy and Turkey have confirmed their advance to the quarterfinals, but the rankings have not been decided. South Korea will compete with one of the two or three teams in Group B through a draw.
“All four teams are strong. “There’s no easy team,” he said. “I hope you’ll do as well as you’ve prepared so far.”
Asked if there was a team he wanted to compete with, Kim Yeon-kyung smiled strangely. “There is,” he said, “but I don’t want to say it out loud.” “I want to avoid the U.S. alone. “The play is fast and strong,” he added.
Kim Yeon-kyung said, “I felt great interest after the thrilling victory (3-2) against Japan on the 31st of last month.”
“I’ve been contacted a lot,” he said. “It would be more meaningful if we played in the quarterfinals with so much attention. “I will shake off the burden and impress the people again with my good performance.”

He also told the story of a reunion with his former teammate Tiana Boskovich (Serbia), who played with him in Bakivank, Turkey. “Why don’t you hit me in front of me?” Kim said. For the 9 o’clock game, we woke up at 6 o’clock, and the opponent woke up at 5 o’clock. I think we lost because we weren’t ready,” he smiled.
Kim Yeon-kyung, who is also the female captain of the entire Korean team, did not forget the propaganda of South Korea.
Kim Yeon-kyung said, “The Olympics are not active outside due to Corona 19 and everyone is going back and forth between athletes’ villages and stadiums. Even though the preparation process was hard, I hope you cheer me on until the end because I did my best even if I didn’t get good results. “I hope you will show a lot of support and interest to athletes in sports that are not receiving attention.”
