OK Financial Group, which failed to advance to the postseason last season, hired Japanese coach Ogino Massage as its new head coach for the first time in men’s professional volleyball history. The strategy is to compete with stable and sophisticated volleyball rather than the thick lines of European volleyball. 

Coach Ogino made a successful debut by leading OK Financial Group to victory in the cup competition last August, his first actual stage, two months after taking office. 

Even in the regular season, OK Financial Group preferred stable serves rather than bold and powerful serves, and took advantage of attacking opportunities through blocking and digs. It seemed like a reversal from the recent emphasis on strength and speed in volleyball. 

However, coach Ogino is proving his volleyball skills by winning two consecutive wins in the opening regular season following the cup championship. 

OK Financial Group will face off against Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which is competing for second place, on the 27th. Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance’s upward trend is also strong, recording 2 wins and 1 loss this season. Attention is being paid to how far Director Ogino’s sensation will continue.
