When she stretches, Kim warms up with her own routine, which is different from her teammates. She has had three knee surgeries since her professional debut.
Due to the sport’s repetitive nature of jumping and landing on hard surfaces, knee injuries are a fact of life for volleyball players.

Pepper Savings Bank, which made a major off-season reinforcement, has been playing completely differently this season, and the game was expected to be close.
However, Heungkuk Life not only had Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena, but also several other experienced players, most notably Kim Soo-ji.
Yelena bombarded the Pepper Savings Bank court to keep them in the match, while Kim Yeon-kyung, who struggled in the first set, quickly found her groove and was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) after surpassing 4,000 career points.
On the other hand, Pepper Savings Bank was led by Yasmin with a game-high 28 points, but the trusted Park Jung-ah was unable to overcome the barrier of Heungkuk Life, as she scored only 9 points and shot 33% from the field.
