In the ‘high ground’ emphasized by director Choi Tae-woong, it was the first step to gain an advantage.

Hyundai Capital used Heo Soo-bong as a middle blocker in the first set, but changed the formation to an apositive spiker in the second set. Regarding this, coach Choi Tae-woong further explained, “Since the opponent has a high block in front of us, we needed to strengthen the side.
