KOR W: Korean federation allows Lee sisters to play next season

by WoV

The Heungkuk Life Insurance Pink Spiders asked the Korean Volleyball Federation (KOVO) to lift the suspension of two of its members, the Lee twin sisters, and it bore fruit.

The Pink Spiders announced they worked on allowing the return of their players Lee Jae-Yeong and Lee Da-Yeong, who were suspended indefinitely for allegations of school violence, to competing. The head of the Incheon club said that he managed to persuade KOVO to register the twin sisters for the 2021/22 season. He also added that Lee Jae-Yeong will play for the Pink Spiders, while Lee Da-Yeong got permission to compete abroad – most likely in Greece’s P.A.O.K.

Recall that when the accusations of bullying committed by the Lee twins were revealed, the Pink Spiders suspended them both indefinitely. The KOVO also indefinitely banned the two players to compete with the country’s national team on the same day. The twin sisters immediately apologized publicly to their volleyball fans and took legal action to seek for the truth. The allegations against  Lee Jae-Yeong and Lee Da-Yeong have not been fully investigated and the results of the investigation are yet to come.

Will be patiently awaiting their return as a fan
I’m glad they’ve acknowledged and apologized for it, and of course the results of the investigation are still pending and we don’t know how much of the accusations are true or false yet.

Hoping for the best and looking forward to watch their matches again

Same here. They are professional players, and what they need to prove is their performance. What they had committed in the past shall be dealt before the court subject to the series of investigation. I not only want to see them playing in the court but also demonstrate themselves to be better people.

That shouldn’t be an issue since they have already proven to have changed since their high school (U19) days as well as during their professional careers for the past 10 years.
(the accusations were from their middle school days)

They’ve always been close to and nice to their teammates (not just based on observation, but by how their teammates & juniors talked about them appreciatively on multiple occasions)
That’s why when the news first broke about this, it came as a shock to everyone.
