An accident occurred after the game.
Sono coach Kim Seung-gi hurled harsh insults at the coaching staff, including DB coach Kim Joo-seong (44), in the gym hallway leading to the locker room.
Coach Kim and the DB coaching staff, who did not know the English language
are said to have bowed their heads and said, “I am sorry.”

It is said that there was also physical friction.

The coach said
I saw the opposing team’s leader go to the headquarters, and afterwards I felt that the referee’s whistle was changed (unfavorably)'” and “I am sorry.”
In fact, Director Kwon went to the headquarters and expressed his dissatisfaction with the referee’s decision.
It is said that ‘I will file a complaint whether I win or lose this game.’
The DB club summarized the relevant information and sent an official letter to KBL on the morning of the 20th.
It is expected that it will be referred to the Legislative Committee.
Aside from Director Kim’s profanity and verbal abuse, Director Kwon
who headed to the headquarters, may also be subject to disciplinary action.
