Kwak Myung-woo’s conviction, the aftermath of the trade failure

The trade was canceled as OK Financial Group setter Kwak Myung-woo (33) was belatedly found guilty by the court.

During the 2023-24 season, Kwak was sentenced to six months in prison, suspended for one year, and suspended for one year for violating the Communications Secret Protection Act and causing injury. However, OK Financial Group announced a one-on-one trade with Hyundai Capital middle blocker Cha Young-seok last month.

The trade recently fell through. A Hyundai Capital source said, “(After confirming Kwak’s conviction,) it is difficult to trade with OK Financial Group.” The Korea Volleyball Federation (KOVO) did not disclose the trade until recently. OK Financial Group belatedly requested KOVO to withdraw the trade disclosure. It is very unusual for a trade to be withdrawn after an official announcement is made. “Although we cannot disclose the player’s personal information in detail, we have recently confirmed that he has been tried by law,” an OK Financial Group source said.

Kwak will not likely be able to avoid disciplinary action. Article 10, Paragraph 1 of the KOVO’s reward and punishment regulations defines “members who commit acts that undermine their dignity due to serious social crimes such as sexual crimes (including sexual harassment), violence, driving under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, gambling, match fixing, racism, school violence, human rights violations, and other reasons.” Besides the latest conviction, there are many rumors surrounding Kwak.

Kwak Myung-woo played in 126 sets in 34 games during the 2023-24 season, and was the main setter who led OK Financial Group to advance to the championship game. Even after the ruling was made, Kwak continued to play normally. OK Financial Group is unlikely to be free from controversies over player management and responsibility.

KOVO and its club officials are participating in a tryout of foreign male players in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE). They plan to decide whether to hold a reward and punishment committee after returning to Korea on Wednesday.
