In this free agency market, all the clubs that let go of A-class players chose 200% of the previous season’s annual salary and compensation players. And out of the 4 players, 3 players returned to their home team.
First, as Na Kyung-bok, who was a member of Woori Card, transferred to KB Insurance, Woori Card was able to select a compensation player. Woori Card chose Park Jin-woo to strengthen the middle blocker, which was considered one of the weaknesses in the 2022-2023 season.
Park Jin-woo was nominated by Dream Six, the predecessor of Woori Card, as the second pick in the first round of the 2012-2013 rookie draft and played an active role for six seasons. Park Jin-woo, who later transferred to KB Insurance and played four seasons, returned to his parent team Woori Card from the 2023-2024 season.
When Park Jung-ah transferred to Pepper Savings Bank, the Korea Expressway Corporation designated setter Lee Go-eun as a compensation player. After being nominated by Korea Expressway Corporation in the 1st round and 3rd place in the 2013-2014 season rookie draft, Lee has experience in Korea Expressway Corporation from the 2013-2014 to 2015-2016 season and the 2020-2021 to 2021-2022 season. .

Kim Joo-hyang also returned to her family’s team. Hyundai E&C, which sent Hwang Min-kyung to IBK Industrial Bank, was in dire need of outside heater reinforcement. This is because Go Ye-rim and Hwang Min-kyung, who were active as the main outside heaters in the 2022-2023 season, left due to injuries and transfers, respectively.
Hyundai E&C eventually chose Kim Joo-hyang. Kim Joo-hyang joined Hyundai E&C in the 2017-2018 season rookie draft in the 1st round and 3rd place, but did not show great performance during the 2nd season and transferred to IBK Industrial Bank ahead of the 2019-2020 season.
Hyundai E&C is pinning great expectations on Kim Joo-hyang, who returned from four seasons at IBK Industrial Bank.
Of the four players nominated for this FA compensation player, three players returned to their home team, excluding Lim Hye-rim, who moved his nest from Heungkuk Life Insurance to IBK Industrial Bank. Fans are paying attention to what they will show in the new season after returning to their home team after a long time.
