Volleyball stars Kim Yeon Kyung, Kim Su Ji, and Yang Hyo Jin are the first to join the brand new branch of 'Dear U Bubble', 'Bubble for SPORTS'.
'Dear U Bubble' is a private messaging platform where fans are able to communicate with their favorite artists, such as K-Pop idols or actors. The platform's parent company has now announced that it will be launching the new branch of the family, 'Bubble for SPORTS', exclusively for sports stars beginning in January. Here, South Korea's legendary volleyball stars Kim Yeon Kyung, Kim Su Ji, and Yang Hyo Jin were revealed as the first sports stars to join the platform.
