A different Hyundai Capital rides five-game winning streak to mid-table finish

The Hyundai Capital Skywalkers of the men’s professional volleyball league are on a roll.

The Skywalkers are looking forward to ‘spring volleyball’ with back-to-back wins after their head coach Choi Tae-woong was fired for poor performance.
The Skywalkers defeated the Samsung Fire Bluefangs in straight sets, 3-1, at Chungmu Gymnasium in Daejeon on April 7.

It was their first win against Samsung Fire, who they had lost to three times this season, and they moved into fourth place with three points (31 points, 9-9-13).

After languishing in sixth place through three rounds, they are now chasing second-place Samsung Fire and third-place Korean Air Jumbos, both of whom have 38 points.

Since Dec. 24 last year, the team has won five games, including two against the KEPCO Big Storm and sweeping the Woori Card Wooriwon, KB Insurance Stars, and Samsung Fire.

Prior to Jin Soon-ki’s reign, Hyundai Capital’s only wins came against OK Financial Group Eom-man and KB Insurance.


While there hasn’t been much change other than a new coach, the offense has been revitalized as the main players have adapted to their respective positions.

Long setter Kim Myung-kwan has begun to provide a steady toss under acting head coach Jin Soon-ki,

while the trio of Ahmed Iqbairi (real name Ahmed), Jeon Kwang-in, and Heo Su-bong are leading the team in scoring.

In addition, veterans Moon Sung-min and Lee Si-woo shake up opposing receptions with their game-changing service aces.
Korean Air is the only team Hyundai Capital hasn’t beaten this season.

They have lost all three meetings this season.

Third-ranked Korean Air snapped a two-game losing streak and turned things around with a win over Woori Card on May 5.

The two teams, who are battling for the top spot in the standings, will meet at Cheonan Yoo Yoo Soon Gymnasium on March 12.
