IBK Industrial Bank Pyo Seung-joo’s strong serve shook the KGC Ginseng Corporation’s receive, but as Kim Su-ji left the court to attack the bounced ball, the score gap widened to 18-15.

In the end, as Lee Sun-woo succeeded in open attacks and sub-aces in a row at 23-20, KGC Ginseng Corporation took even two sets and the game was on the decline.
