With this trade, OK Financial Group and Woori Card have filled a need in the team. OK Financial Group added stability to their team with the acquisition of an outside hitter. Woori Card will be looking to upgrade their offense with the addition of Song Myung-geun.
A representative from both clubs said, “This is a trade that fills a gap in our team, and we expect it to help us rise in power next season. We would like to thank the departing players for their dedication and wish them well in their new teams.” 스포츠토토
