Heungkuk Life Insurance said, “I decided that coach Kim Ki-joong, who had rich experience and leadership in the field, was the right person.” I will do my best to help coach Kim quickly pick up the team and show the best performance,” he lowered his head.
Coach Kim graduated from Sungkyunkwan University and has been active as a player at Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance since 1997. After retiring, he built a leadership career at GS Caltex, LIG Insurance (now KB Insurance), and Hyundai Capital, and then served as the head coach at Heungkuk Life Insurance for four years from 2018, winning the 2018-2019 season and winning the 2020-2021 season. He advanced to the championship match and was recognized for his leadership.
Coach Kim also said, “For the past four years, I have shared the joys and sorrows with the players at Heungkuk Life Insurance. He came back and took on a new challenge as manager. We will do our best to show a good game that can repay the fans’ passionate support.”
