ROU W: Lee sisters still unwelcome in their homeland – one of them will play in Romania next season

It has been officially announced that Lee Da-Yeong will be playing in Romania next season. The 25-year-old setter has signed with Rapid, the 19-time country’s champions, who won the last title 16 years ago. Until February 2021, she and her sister Jae-Yeong were considered big Korean volleyball stars, but then the controversy over school violence they committed, as well as the domestic violence of Da-Yeong, came to light and they received an indefinite suspension from the club they played for at the moment, Heungkuk Life Pink Spiders, and Korean federation. They were forced to play the 2021-22 season abroad, and both have chosen Greece’s PAOK Thessaloniki, which is the transfer in which the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) had to interfere.

Unlike Jae-Yeong, who returned home early due to a knee injury, Da-Yeong completed the season in Greece. Given that no Korean club showed the interest to sign the Lee sisters, the setter once again embarked on an adventure overseas.

Hi I think it would be more accurate to report both incidents as alleged rather than as facts

The school bullying is still under investigations as majority of what was accused are said to be false – and the twins’ middle school coach had said so too.
And the claims made by her ex husband were revealed to be defamation allegations made to blackmail her financially for >$300K

Wow. Some blind-sighted fans are making false claims on a perfectly balanced report. Offers from Korean clubs appears to be a wild imagination that nobody ever reported in Korea. School violence involving a knife is a fact they admitted during the national broadcaster’s interview. The only outstanding issue is if there are any exaggerations in the long list of claims (23 or so points) made by the victims. The twins tried to make a defamation criminal case against the school violence victims, but there has been absolutely zero progress on the case.
