With this, Korean Air finished the championship match with all three wins, achieving the splendid feat of winning the combined championship for three consecutive seasons from the 2020-2021 season.

And setter Han (38), who was at the center of a three-game losing streak, won the second MVP in his personal career. Player Han won the MVP award by getting 23 out of 31 votes in the press vote. It has been five years since the last 2017-2018 season championship match.
Player Han led the team by coordinating twin guns such as Lincoln and Jung Ji-seok, and led the team to a set score of 3-2 while calming the atmosphere right before the shutout defeat in the fateful third game.
After the game, one player said, “I trusted the players rather than saying anything. He thought he could. He thought it was time to start again with one set. He believed and said he could. I think he was able to win by doing up to 5 sets with the same mindset as the players,” he said. 스포츠토토

I’m doing a lot of work on how to finish my work. To finish that, I think I will do my best every year and year. I am grateful that I can play volleyball.”
This is the second time Korean Air has achieved three consecutive wins in a row since Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance achieved them from the 2011-2012 season to the 2013-2014 season.

If it were us now, I think we would win.”
Han Seon-soo expressed his will to continue his active career until the age of 42 in an interview on the MVP broadcast that day. “I can run as long as I can,” he said. I told the club that I was 42 years old,” he said. “I always think a lot about the end of my volleyball life. 1 year 1 year seems difficult. I have to endure as much as possible, but I am confident. Until then, I want to remain in my prime.”
However, rather than extending active duty until the age of 42, the immediate goal is the unprecedented ‘fourth consecutive victory’. “I am grateful to be playing with these players now,” he said. However, the top priority right now is to win 4 consecutive championships. I will think about winning 4 consecutive combined championships first.”
