I’m disappointed to lose… but I’m also disappointed to see the opposing team’s social media post, “Sign the best innie player.”
In the Korean V-League, foreign mercenaries of various nationalities are currently playing to help their teams win. This season, the first Asian quota system was introduced, allowing teams to see two foreign players on the same court.
On May 5, Jeong Kwan-jang led Pepper Savings Bank to a 3-0 (27-25, 25-17, 25-16) victory in the first round of the 2023-24 Dodram V-League Women’s Division at Pepper Stadium in Gwangju.
Jung, who was in fourth place with eight points, added three more points with the straight-set win. He is tied with second-place GS Caltex with 11 points, but is in third place due to the forfeited set.
Mega led both teams with 25 points on the day (57.5% offensive success rate), while Jia added 18 points.
Since joining the team as the first Asian Quarter Player of the season, Mega has accumulated 138 points through six games, a 48.46% offensive success rate (3rd overall) and a 49.23% success rate on open shots (1st overall), leading the team to the top of the standings alongside foreign recruit Jia.
But while the on-court battle may be over, the aftermath in the stands is far from over. The Pepper Savings Bank fanbase had to frown twice after losing in a shutout. This was due to the poor behavior of some Indonesian fans who traveled to Gwangju to support the Mega.
On the day of the match, three busloads of Indonesian fans were captured on camera waving their country’s flags and flagpoles while cheering enthusiastically at Pepper Stadium. 보스토토 주소
On the 6th, an informant emailed us, “I would like to report the behavior of Innie fans,” stating that “(some Innie fans) interrupted Pepper Savings Bank’s serve time with their mobile phone flash, booed when the home team (Pepper Savings Bank) served, and brought flags with the names of their country’s politicians.”
The caller reported that an Indonesian fan in the away end held up a placard with the name of Mega (Megawati Putih) and an inscription believed to be that of Indonesian politician Megawati Sukarnoputri, the ruling party’s president (and former president of Indonesia).
