Even if she couldn’t dance, the beginning and the end were Kim Yeon-kyung
Kim Yeon-kyung (Heungkuk Life Insurance) stood at the center of the All-Star Game. Her volleyball skills, as well as pleasant fan service and splendid talk, were added.
On the afternoon of the 29th, the ‘Dodram 2022-2023 V-League All-Star Game’ was held at Samsan World Gymnasium in Incheon. Kim Yeon-kyung, who played as an M-star team, scored 5 points, including 1 point each for blocking and serving, and scored the most points on the team along with Kim Hee-jin (IBK Industrial Bank of Korea). In response, she received 19 out of 30 votes from the reporters and was honored to become the first MVP 메이저놀이터 (Most Valuable Player) after 14 years after the 2008-2009 season.
Kim Yeon-kyung said, “She is the MVP.” When she was called, she looked puzzled and tried to pass the credit to someone else, saying, “Why did you give me the MVP? Thank you for choosing me.”
However, Kim Yeon-kyung was the best star in the All-Star Game that led the fans to cheer the most. She actively participated in dance ceremonies with the M-star team members, even though she was not as flashy as Elisabeth (Ginseng Corporation) with her elegant dance moves and Lee Da-Hyun (Hyundai E&C) with her great sense of dance. She was delighted and warmly hugged Nia Reed (Pepper Savings Bank) as she danced, and when Kim Hee-jin performed New Jeans’ ‘Hip Boy’, she led and encouraged her to continue dancing.
Eventually, she even made the best scene in the All-Star Game herself. The ‘dance provocation’ with Lee Da-hyun led the fans to cheer the loudest that day. When Lee Da-hyun had a dance ceremony after scoring, he laughed and followed Lee Da-hyun’s dance moves with the gesture of ‘not so much’. In response, Lee Da-hyun did not lose and fought again with a dance.
After the game, he directly explained why he provoked Lee Da-hyun. Kim Yeon-kyung said, “I didn’t like Lee Da-hyun’s expression when he danced. It was an expression that said, ‘I’m the coolest and coolest in the world.'”
Kim Yeon-kyung’s volleyball was definitely the best, but her dancing wasn’t. When all of the Z-star players performed NCT Dream’s ‘Candy’ together, they showed some clumsy dance moves. Kim Yeon-kyung said, “In fact, I thought that I should not do (dance ceremony) as I am older and older in this All-Star Game. That’s why I worked hard,” he said.
As such, Kim Yeon-kyung showed her best efforts for the V-League and for her fans. Kim Yeon-kyung, who said she poured out “It would be fortunate if she didn’t get sick,” took care of her fans until the end. Volleyball Empress, she said, “I sincerely thank the fans who have been with me. I ask for your interest and support for the rest of the V-League as well,” she said.
