Fan expectation is also high with many hoping the national team will perform strongly persistently and not be defeated easily.
 
However the side will have difficulty after Lee Kyung-Soo, the team’s main forward, pulled out because of a knee injury.
      
However, Choi Tae-Woong who is a veteran setter, as well as Moon Sung-Min and Kim Yo-Han should strengthen Korea with their rounded skill base, and players brought in from abroad should also be able to fill the gap left by Kyung-Soo.
          
Korea finished 14th in last year’s competition after claiming by three wins and nine losses and they have made it clear that this year’s goal is to qualify for the next year’s World League by clinching four wins.
