While KEPCO overwhelmed the team with a score of 13-1, Tydull Host (registered name Tyce, 17 points), Seo Jae-deok (12 points), Lim Sung-jin (10 points), and Shin Young-seok (8 points) performed evenly.

In particular, Shin Young-seok surpassed 4,000 points (4,000 points in total) for the eighth time in men’s history and the first time as a middle blocker.
