Within a day, the number 1 spot changed again. Men’s professional volleyball Korean Air again came to the forefront of the leaderboard.
Korean Air won the 2022-23 Dodram V-League OK Financial Group away match at Sangnoksu Gymnasium in Ansan on the 22nd with a set score of 3-0 (25-17 25-15 27-25). Korean Air became 21-9 (62 points) and beat Hyundai Capital (20-10 losses, 61 points).

On the other hand, OK Financial Group failed to continue its upward trend by winning a full set of close matches against the Korea Electric Power Corporation (16th). They failed to add points and wins and stayed in 5th place with 14 wins and 16 losses (41 points).
Korean Air did its part as Lincoln (Australia) scored 20 points, the most for both teams combined. Jeong Ji-seok, who suffered a finger injury, also supported the team well with 12 points. Middle blocker Kyu-Min Kim scored 8 points including 5 blocks, strengthening Korean Air’s superiority in height.
OK Financial Group suffered from the sluggish performance of its “main gun” Leo (Cuba). Leo only scored 15 points that day. Shin Shin-jin, a rookie, struggled with 10 points, but it was not enough to prevent his team from losing. 메이저놀이터
