It looks like Marck Espejo is making the most of his stay overseas before he crash lands back home in time for his Spikers' Turf comeback.


The decorated Pinoy outside hitter shared some snaps of his downtime in South Korea on Thursday just a week removed from capturing his first pro title in the Men’s V-League tournament. 

"Last few days in Korea 🍃🩶,” the post read.

Oppa has been enjoying his stay away from the country, including celebrating his 27th birthday under frigid conditions just a month ago.

 Just last week, the former Ateneo Blue Eagle helped Incheon Korean Air Jumbos complete a four-peat after his squad swept the OK Financial Group, on April 3, Tuesday in their best-of-five championship showdown.

The high-flying hitter Espejo signed with the squad last year and had appeared in 23 games for the Air Jumbos this season.

The win also helped the 2023 Spikers’ Turf Open Conference Finals MVP to join a exclusive list of Pinoy imports who held a pro volleyball title in a foreign soil that includes Jia De Guzman, Ced Domingo, and Bryan Bagunas.

 Meanwhile, Espejo’s King Crunchers remain undefeated in the 2024 Spikers’ Turf Open Conference with an immaculate 4-0 record but are on a collision course against their toughest assignment yet: the defending champ and Marck’s former team Cignal HD Spikers. 

 Both teams are undefeated and are tied atop of the team standings but Espejos' status is that game remains unclear. 

The mutli-awarded leaper spent five seasons as an HD Spiker, where he earned three titles and three Finals MVP plum before bolting to Criss Cross this offseason.

Both squads will face off in a heavyweight title in the main game of a Sunday triple-header at 6:00 p.m. which  you can watch live on the Pilipinas Live app.
