Coach Kim Eun-joong and the players couldn’t hide their beaming faces as they were greeted with thunderous applause and cheers that were different from their departure.

Despite the lack of attention compared to the adult national team and the change of venue a month before the start of the tournament, the team came back as the “golden generation” with a top-four finish.

Despite being labeled as the ‘valley generation’ with no stars like Lee Kang-in and little professional experience, captain Lee Seung-won was awarded the ‘Bronze Ball’ for his performance in the last tournament, surpassing Lee Kang-in,
