Mayhem’ to see Kim Yeon-kyung in the booth… A spoonful of regret in the festival

On the 29th, the Dodram V-League All-Star Game for the 2022-23 season was successfully held at Incheon Samsan Gymnasium. The event was hosted by MC Issue, and various events such as the dance group ‘Just Jerk’ held a celebratory performance and welcomed the fans.

In line with the ‘MZ’ trend, this All-Star Game divided men’s players born around 1995 and women’s players born around 1996 into M-stars and Z-stars. The slogan of the event is ‘Happy New V’, which means to start the new year with the V-League. 

About 2,426 fans also flocked to the pre-event ‘PRE-all star game’ held the day before on the 28th. 

On the 29th, more than 6,300 fans gathered for the main event, and it was incomparably hot compared to the previous day. At Incheon Samsan Gymnasium, the site of the All-Star Game, a photo booth called ‘Life 4 Cuts’ was installed to take pictures with popular players such as Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Hee-jin, creating a buzz. In addition, players such as Jeon Kwang-in and Yang Hyo-jin communicated directly with fans at Cobo Market and sold products. 

Of course, it was good to prepare an ambitious event for the fans. However, the lack of follow-up response left a deep regret. 

On this day, the reporters of this magazine tried to cover the site directly, such as Cobo Market, but it was not easy to even set foot inside the stadium. 

The Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) 먹튀검증 must have expected thousands of fans from all over the country to gather with the super-star power of Kim Yeon-kyung. However, the response directly facing the field was quite sluggish. Serious traffic congestion occurred from the photo booth.

Fans flocked to take pictures with their favorite players, but the line was not lined up, and only the field staff shouted at the top of their voices, ‘This is a passageway, please clear the way’. 

Fans who didn’t know where or how to make their way, swayed sideways in a crowd and managed to make a passage. Some fans went up to the bench with their shoes on and pointed their cameras at the photo booth, but there was no restriction.

Cobo Market, which sells clappers, was also cluttered. It was difficult to expect an orderly line, and the line for the photo booth and the line to receive the clapper were tangled up, creating confusion. When our reporter asked, “Is this a line for taking photos of the photo booth?”, the fans in line answered “yes,” and we were able to figure it out. 

In the end, it was regrettable that the event was canceled early to prevent further congestion. 

Another thing that caught my eye was the men’s ceremony, which was not very noticeable compared to the women’s. The women’s players showed rich celebrations, such as scoring goals, dancing in front of them, and directing funny scenes. However, the men’s team showed a little more focus on the game rather than the ceremony. Except for a few players, nothing special was seen.

On this day, KOVO said, “This All-Star Game was planned to be a dynamic All-Star Game by focusing more on the performance of the players than on the ceremony.” 

However, this point is somewhat divided between fans and players.

Some fans commented, “The male players don’t get a lot of response compared to the women’s team even after the ceremony, so it’s better to focus on the game.” It is also true that there was no special ceremony.”

After the event, Leo, the MVP of the men’s division, said in an interview, “(I’m the serious type) during the game, but I think it’s better to show some showmanship in the All-Star game like the women’s division.”

No matter how grand a party is, it is impossible to satisfy all 100 guests. It only relies on the players preparing hard, and the point that KOVO’s method of managing the All-Star Game is also outdated continues to rise.

Anyway, a volleyball festival that is a pleasant gift for someone and a bit of a disappointment to someone else, how will it change in the next season? 

Meanwhile, the 2022-23 season V-League, which successfully completed the All-Star Game, will resume with round 5 matches from the 31st (Tuesday). The men’s match will be held at Woori Card-KB Insurance, and the women’s match will be held at KGC Ginseng Corporation-Korea Expressway Corporation.
