Kim Jong-un, who obtained FA status again, chose Hana 1Q. She is looking forward to seeing what kind of activity Kim Jong-un, who left comfortably after winning the championship, will perform in Hana 1Q, her parent team, which cannot escape her lower ranks.

While most of the players stayed with their original clubs, Lee Jeong-hyeon (Hana 1 Q) and Park Ji-eun (KB Stars) started the third round of free agency negotiations. Heejin Choi has decided to retire.
