Should I postpone the military enlistment schedule…Kim Dong-hun’s “Last Fighting Spirit” Preview for Incheon

When asked about the performance of goalkeeper Kim Dong-heon (26-Incheon United) after the match against ACL Yokohama F.Marinos (Japan) at the Incheon Football Stadium on Monday, Incheon head coach Cho Sung-hwan smiled broadly. It means he’s important enough to ask for a delay in his enlistment date. Kim is scheduled to enlist in the Armed Forces Athletic Corps (Commercial) on the fourth of next month, and Cho laughed, saying, “I hope he can contribute to the team and enlist before Kaya (Philippines).”레모나토토 도메인

Earlier, the Korean Armed Forces recently left it up to the players to choose the date of enlistment for Gimcheon’s recruits, which was scheduled for the 4th of next month. This is because their respective teams’ schedules, such as the K League and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL), continue in December. The 13 players, including Kim Dong-heon, can either join the team as scheduled or request to delay their enlistment date.

The reason why coach Cho Sung-hwan wants Kim to join the team now is because he is a key part of the team’s strength. Kim has been Incheon’s starting goalkeeper this season, conceding just 24 goals in 23 appearances in the K League. He was also named to the Best 11 of the K League Rounds twice.

The 28th match against Yokohama was another game where Kim’s presence shone through. In what was a watershed moment for the team as they advanced to the Round of 16, Kim made a series of saves to keep Yokohama at bay. Whether it was saving a header from right in front of the goal or making a one-on-one save, he was a force to be reckoned with. In total, Kim stopped five of Yokohama’s six shots on goal on the day.

After the game, even opposing head coach Kevin Muscat (AUS) had his tongue in cheek: “There were some very good saves by their goalkeeper. If it wasn’t for the saves, we could have scored two or three goals in the first half alone. I don’t think we missed any chances. It’s just that the goalkeeper made some good saves,” he said, referring to Kim Dong-heon’s performance on several occasions.

Incheon’s next two matches will make or break their season. Against Daegu FC on the 4th of next month, a spot in next season’s ACL is at stake, and against Kaya on the 13th, a spot in the round of 16 of this season’s ACL is at stake. As captain Oh Ban-seok said, “Nothing is in our hands yet. We have to do our best until the end,” said captain Oh Banseok. Kim Dong-heon, who has been protecting the goal, is even more needed.

In response, Kim Dong-heon said, “Postponing my enlistment date is only the coach’s wish, but I’ll try to do some ‘smuggling’ (laughs). If there is a player to enlist with me, I will postpone it. Thanks to the director’s trust, I’m getting good performances. I want to make him happy with the results.” Kim Dong-heon is not the only one who is scheduled to enlist in the army, as there are many other players who have team commitments until December. With the enlistment date slightly delayed, the team can only hope to make a ‘last stand’ for Incheon in the remaining two games.

Successful bullpen reinforcement → It’s a shame to start…”Young Blood” Lee Ho-sung’s “Eye Road” focused on the six glandular lobes

Samsung has tackled its ‘biggest offseason task’: bolstering its bullpen. The addition of Kim Jae-yoon (33) alone seems to have a positive effect. My eyes are drawn to the other: the starter. I didn’t like this one entirely either. I’m interested in ‘young blood’. Lee Ho-sung (19) and Yuk Sun-yeop (18) are the main characters.

Lee is a rookie who joined the team in 2023. He has appeared in five games this season, pitching 17 innings, with one win and a 2.65 ERA. He started three games out of the bullpen and two games as a starter.

The results were good. On October 1 against Lotte, he pitched five innings of four-hit ball with two walks and one strikeout. It was a successful starting debut. On October 6, he pitched again against KT, giving up one run on four hits (one home run) in five innings with four walks and six strikeouts. He got the win.

Lee Ho-sung, a former Incheon High School ace, was selected in the first round of the 2023 rookie draft. He was selected as a starting pitcher. He started his professional career with the Futures after establishing himself well. He quickly rose to the first team. He showed promise. Expectations are high for next season.

There’s another card to play. This is 2024 season rookie Yuk Sun-yup. A first-round pick in the 2024 Rookie Draft, he was considered one of the best pitchers in the 2024 Draft, a draft full of quality pitchers.

A right-handed orthodox pitcher with a height of 190 centimeters. In 2023, he pitched 12 games, 21.2 innings, two wins, and a 0.41 ERA in high school. Once again, Samsung sees Yuk as a starter. He’s determined, too. After becoming an ace in the KBO, he has ambitions to reach the major leagues.

Samsung posted a team ERA of 4.60 in the 2023 season. That’s the worst in the league. The bullpen was the only one in the league with a 5.16 ERA. The starters were seventh with a 4.26 ERA. It’s not the worst.

There’s a pitfall. The “deviation” was large. David Buchanan dominated, going 12-8 with a 2.54 ERA in 30 games and 88 innings. Albert Suarez wasn’t bad either, with a 4-7 record and a 3.92 ERA in 19 games and 108 innings before going down with an injury.굿모닝토토 도메인

On the mound, Won Tae-in was good with 26 games, 150 innings, 7 wins, 7 losses, and a 3.24 ERA. Baek Jeong-hyun also had his ups and downs, but he had 18 games, 100.2 innings, 7 wins, 5 losses, and a 3.67 ERA. The combined ERA of these four is 3.21.

The other end of the spectrum was disappointing. It’s safe to say that we didn’t find a legitimate fifth starter all season. Yang Chang-seop ended up joining the military after failing to live up to expectations. Lee Jae-hee, who had a decent start to the season, also headed to Sangmu.

Hwang Dong-jae and Heo Yoon-dong were also disappointing. The team pinned their hopes on Choi Chae-heung, but he struggled with a 1-7 record and a 6.53 ERA. He was not a savior.

The 2024 season also has its fair share of question marks in the starting rotation. David Buchanan is in contract negotiations. There is talk of a new foreign pitcher, Cody Pons. You always have to take the lid off newcomers.

On the native side, only Won Tae-in can be called a ‘constant’. Baek Jeong-hyun’s full resurgence is a must, but we are still short on starters. It’s not easy to fill the five-man roster. It’s best if someone comes up big.

That ‘someone’ could be Lee Ho-sung and Yuk Sun-yeop. If that happens, Samsung can smile broadly. It doesn’t hurt to look at the possibilities. After all, you can’t play a full season with the starting five. You always need a backup. If Lee Ho-sung and Yuk Sun-yeop can gain experience, Samsung will be stronger.

“3 points unconditionally.” Jeonbuk will play a big game 5 years ago…KITCHY said, “I won’t back down”

Nowhere to go but up. Jeonbuk Hyundai will aim for all three points against Kitchee SC.

Jeonbuk Hyundai will face Kitchee SC in the fifth match of the 2023-2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) Group F at the Hong Kong Stadium in Hong Kong on Monday at 7 p.m. (local time).레모나토토 도메인

Jeonbuk currently sits in second place in the group with two wins, two losses and six points. They are tied on points with Ryan City Sailors (Singapore). Kitchee, on the other hand, is at the bottom of the group with one draw, three losses, and one point.

For Jeonbuk, this is a must-win game with the pressure of traveling. If they don’t win this game, they’ll drop to third place in the group and their chances of qualifying for the round of 16 could be in jeopardy. After beating Kitchee, Jeonbuk will have to prepare for Game 6 at home against Bangkok United (Thailand).

Even if they finish second in the group, they could still be eliminated, making the three points all the more crucial. After the group stage, the first-place team from each group (five from East Asia and five from West Asia) will automatically qualify for the round of 16, while the second-place team from each group will only qualify for the round of 16 if they are among the top three teams from each region.

Of course, Jeonbuk is favored in terms of objective power. Kitchee lost all but a draw against Bangkok in the ACL this season. However, Jeonbuk can’t afford to let their guard down, as they’re coming off back-to-back losses to Bangkok and Ryan City. They need to end their Southeast Asian nightmare with a convincing win.

At the pre-match press conference on the 28th, head coach Dan Petrescu said, “We played against Kitchee in the first leg of the group stage. As it was the first game, there was less pressure and pressure on us. Now it’s more important as we’re heading into the fifth leg. The pressure will be less for Kitchee because they are out of the group, but it’s more for us. The players are well aware of the pressure of this match.”

Captain Hong Jung-ho added: “The players are well aware of the importance of tomorrow’s game and are preparing for it. We need three points, so we will focus and play well to bring home the three points.”

Jeonbuk held their final training session before the match at the Hong Kong Stadium on the afternoon of the 28th. The 24-man squad took to the turf, one more than the 23 who can officially register for the match. Only three foreign players, Nana Boateng, Hapa Silva and Jun Amano, were present.

The players began warming up at 5:00 p.m. with the goalkeeping trio of Kim Jung-hoon, Jung Min-ki, and Gong Si-hyun and the rest of the field players in two groups. Coach Petrescu warmed up just like the players, touching the ball and enthusiastically directing the drills. He looked at the players and shouted something out loud. After about 10 minutes, the players on the field worked in pairs of three or four to improve their senses by passing the ball around.

The weather was cool. Temperatures were in the high 20s, but it wasn’t humid and there was a steady breeze. It was a far cry from the usual Southeast Asian sweltering heat. It was perfect for the game.

However, the grass didn’t look great. While it wasn’t a “rice cake turf,” there were a few small potholes, especially in front of the goal.

It’s not the kind of turf that Jeonbuk players are used to, so they need to adapt quickly. Ahn Hyun-beom also said, “I’m confident about the game. But the grass is very variable. We need to see the condition of the field,” he said.

“The weather is not too humid and not too hot. “The grass is a bit different than in Korea, but I don’t think it will be a problem for us to play. I have good memories of playing against Kitsch in 2018. We will utilize those memories to bring a good result.” Jeonbuk won both meetings with Kitsch in 2018, 6-0 and 3-0.

Kitchee, which is seeking its first ACL win this season, had no intention of backing down. “This is our last home game. We’re playing against Jeonbuk, one of the top teams in the K League, and we know that. But I think we did well enough in the last game against Jeonbuk, and everything is different from the last game,” he said confidently.

“We have positive energy, and we are confident against strong teams. We want to play our game no matter who it is, we want to show how well we can finish our attacking chances and how organized we are in defense. We want to focus on how we play against strong teams and how to play in a good way.”

Finally, acting head coach Kim Dong-jin vowed to put on a good show in front of the home fans. “Jeonbuk might be under more pressure,” he said, “but we haven’t won yet. However, we are also winless. We don’t want to back down against them,” he said, adding, “Jeonbuk is a strong team. They have strong players and a strong team. But it’s the end of the season, so we’re at the end of our strength. Plus, it’s an away game and a midweek game. It’s between the important Gwangju and Ulsan games, so there will be a lot of pressure. We’ll take advantage of that,” he said.

“This game starts next year.” KT Park Young-hyun…”I’m done learning. I’ll show you from now on”

KT Wiz’s Park Young-hyun, 20, who became the KBO League’s holder two years after his professional debut, is not satisfied with the status quo and is determined to go one step further. To do so, he will pursue perfection from next season.

Young-hyun’s development into a must-win player this year is a big win for KT. After being selected with the first pick in the 2022 rookie draft, Young-hyun made a splash in his first year, going 1-0 with a 3.66 ERA in 52 games.

In the 2023 season, he was an integral part of the bullpen. He appeared in 68 games and threw 75⅓ innings, posting a 3-3 record, four saves, and a 2.75 ERA in 32 appearances. With 30 holds, he became the youngest pitcher to win the award, overtaking Noh Kyung-eun (SSG Landers).

“It was a very happy year,” said Park Young-hyun, who received the hold award at the KBO Awards ceremony, “and I will prepare better next year so that I don’t fall behind. It’s a new beginning, so I’ll do it with a new heart.”굿모닝토토 도메인

Even on the big stage, Park’s gutsy pitching stood out. In four games at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games, he pitched 5 1/3 innings of one-hit ball, striking out eight and walking none to help Korea win the gold medal. In the postseason, he pitched in eight of the team’s 10 games, allowing two runs on four hits (one home run) with five strikeouts in 8⅔ innings.

After a busy year, Park is getting plenty of rest in the offseason. “I don’t have any problems with my body, but I feel tired, so I’m taking a good rest,” he said. “I’m going to work out with the same routine as last year and show a good performance. I will start working out around the same time as last year.”

KT lost its closer this offseason. Kim Jae-yoon, who had 169 career saves, was transferred to the Samsung Lions on April 22. KT’s next closer will likely be Park Young-hyun. He is expected to take on a bigger role starting next season.

Looking ahead to next year, Young-hyun’s eyes were filled with confidence.

“I learned a lot this year. I became the hold king and won a gold medal.” “Now that I have the experience, I need to show my skills. If it was a season of learning until this year, it’s a season of showing. I showed my potential by becoming the hold king. Next year, I will be even more perfect.”

Park Hyo-joon did not participate → Release → FA succeeded in ‘remaining ML’ contract with OAK after twists and turns

After a big league release jeopardized his chances of extending his stay in the U.S., Hyo-Jun Park has found a new home. The destination is Oakland.

“Park Hyo-joon signed a minor league contract with the Oakland Athletics on the 21st of this month,” said CBS Sports, a local American media outlet.

Park headed to the United States in 2014 while still a student at Yatap High School, signing with the New York Yankees for $1.16 million. At the time, Park chose to pursue his dream despite offers from KBO clubs. In 2021, he made his big league debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates, becoming the 25th Korean leaguer in history.레모나토토 도메인

In 2022, Park batted .216 with two home runs and six RBIs in 23 games for Pittsburgh. However, Park has been on a downward spiral ever since. He was released by the Boston Red Sox and moved to Atlanta, where he spent the season on the disabled list before hitting .262 with six home runs, 16 doubles, 42 RBIs, and 49 runs scored in 101 games for the Atlanta Braves’ Triple-A affiliate, the Gwinnett Strikers.

However, he couldn’t overcome Atlanta’s depth chart and didn’t play a single game in the big leagues, and was eventually released once again.

Park then naturally became a free agent. While he could have entered the KBO, this would have put his career on hold.

According to the KBO’s Baseball Rules, the “Rookie Player” section states that “a rookie player who has attended high school or higher in Korea and has signed a player contract with a foreign professional team without being registered as a member of a Korean professional team may not sign a player contract with a KBO team for two years from the date the player contract with the foreign professional team ends.

Under this provision, even if Bic Hyo-joon returned to Korea, he would not be able to play in the KBO for two years until 2025.

After a series of twists and turns, Park found a new team and is expected to stay with the Oakland A’s until they move to Las Vegas. Oakland went 50-112 this season, with the lowest winning percentage (0.309) in the majors.

Notably, the Major League Baseball owners’ meetings on Sunday unanimously approved a proposal to move Oakland to Las Vegas beginning in the 2025 season.

The rebuilding Oakland team will provide plenty of opportunities for Park, who is looking to reenter the major leagues.

“Park has a great opportunity to rebound in Oakland, where the A’s lost 112 games last year,” said CBS Sports, “and he’ll likely start the 2024 season in Triple-A.”

“Of course, it’s good to have many good players, I hope Seok-hwan stays at Doosan…”” Can we stop the dissolution of the Yang Brothers

Doosan Bears catcher Yang Ji-soo is desperate to prevent the ‘Yang Brothers’ from disbanding. He hopes that his teammate Yang Seok-hwan, who left for free agency, will stay with Doosan.

Yang attended the 2023 KBO Awards on November 27 and won the Defensive Award for catcher.

The KBO Defensive Award, which recognizes the position player with the most outstanding defensive performance in the regular season, was established for the first time this season. The winners were determined based on a combination of 75% of the votes cast by 110 voters, including the manager, nine coaches, and 11 general managers from each club, and 25% of the defensive record score.

Yang was the winner of the catcher award. Yang received 34 votes from the voting panel, earning 75 points, and 17.41 points for the catcher’s defensive record score, which includes stolen bases excluding catcher-unassisted stolen bases and official records, for a total score of 92.41 points.

After winning the defensive award, Yang said on stage, “I am honored to receive the inaugural defensive award, and I really wanted to win this award. Personally, it’s a disappointing season because of my poor performance. I will do my best to prepare Doosan for a higher ranking.”굿모닝토토 도메인

Speaking to the press after the ceremony, Yang Ji said, “I finished the season and I felt that my personal performance was not good enough, but winning the Inaugural Defense Award means a lot to me. I feel that I should continue to work hard in my career so that I am not ashamed of this award.”

Doosan is still looking for a backup catcher to support Yang in the 2024 season. The team selected LG catcher Kim Ki-yeon in the second round of the KBO Draft to strengthen the competition for a backup catcher.

Yang said, “The managers always said they wanted to rest me more, but it didn’t work out (laughs). I’ll try to stay fit and keep wearing the catcher’s mask. I think I need to help the younger catchers, including (Kim) Ki-yeon, who is a junior at my school. I’m not going to be the main catcher for the next 10 years, so I think it’s my job to create the next catcher. Together with Coach Battery, I will try to help them a lot.”

Yang also hopes to retain teammate Yang Seok-hwan, who left for free agency. The long-hitting “Yang Brothers” need to form a central batting lineup together to maintain their destructive power.

“I tried to meet with (Yang) Seok-hwan recently, but it was canceled. I hope he stays. It’s not easy for the club, but I think the more good players we have, the better. The juniors need more time to grow, so I hope Seok-hwan stays and we can work together in the center of the order.”

Yang regretted that his season with Doosan was a bit of a mixed bag. For the 2024 season, he is determined to prepare properly and show his full potential.

“Last winter, I didn’t have enough time to prepare properly. I didn’t have a lot of time to breathe because I was called up to the national team. I wasn’t in good shape and had a difficult start to the season. I was disappointed with my individual results. Personally, I think I should have done better than this, and I will work harder next year to meet that goal. If I can do better, I’m sure the team will follow suit,” he said encouragingly.

NPB Rakuten ‘holds indefinite home waiting’ for Anraku ‘alleged bullying of colleagues’

The Rakuten Golden Eagles of Japanese professional baseball have ordered pitcher Tomohiro Anraku (27) to “stay home indefinitely.

They have postponed his contract renewal indefinitely, and are discussing his “retirement.

“Several Rakuten players complained that they were harassed by Anraku,” Japanese media outlets such as Sportshochi reported today (Nov. 27), “and the club interviewed Anraku, the victims, and sent emails to more than 100 people, including players and officials, to further investigate.”

“Anlaku assaulted several juniors. Some players were hit in the head by Anraku, which affected their training,” and “Anraku continued his harassment in the locker room, including molesting juniors by forcing them to remove their underwear and persistently calling juniors who declined invitations to meals.”토토사이트

Rakuten had originally planned to sign Anraku to a contract for the 2024 season on May 25, but put the deal on hold after receiving the “harassment report.

If the team does not place Anraku’s name on the pending list submitted to Nippon Baseball Organization by November 30, he will become a free agent.

Anraku joined Rakuten as a first-round pick out of high school.

Early on in his career, he was touted as a “future starter,” but he failed to break into the starting lineup and has only made relief appearances since 2020.

His career record in Nippon Professional Baseball’s first team is 231 games (28 starts), 18 wins, 21 losses, 3 saves, 50 holds, and a 3.59 ERA.

This year, he has appeared in 57 games with a 3-2 record, 10 saves, and a 3.04 ERA.

The club said, “We apologize for the distress caused to our fans. We will fully disclose our findings once we have completed our investigation.”

Veteran Surprise Transfer ‘Happiness’…a big system supplementation task

The resurrected baseball secondary draft has become a big hit with baseball fans. This is because veteran transfers were made at the secondary draft stage, which was evaluated as a place to exchange prospects, and provided new ‘baseball fun’ to the KBO stove league. However, it also exposes the gaps in the system and requires measures to compensate for them.굿모닝토토 도메인

The secondary draft is designed to give players who have fallen off the radar a chance to move to other teams. Each team will designate 35 protected players, excluding foreign players, players in their first to third year, and free agents (FAs), and submit them to the KBO. The 10 teams can then choose to sign players off the protected list. With the reinstatement of the secondary draft, which was abolished at the end of 2020, veterans like infielder Choi Joo-hwan (35) and pitcher Woo Gyu-min (37), who have dominated the league in the past, have been removed from the protected list, while Choi grew up in SSG and Woo Gyu-min switched teams from Samsung to KT.

The most shocking news was the departure of Kim Kang-min, 41. SSG removed the 2022 Korean Series Most Valuable Player (MVP) from protection. The franchise star played 22 seasons in Incheon, but it was assumed that he would not be designated for assignment as his performance was not as good as it used to be. He hadn’t even indicated ‘retirement concerns’ in the ‘Remarks’ section of the roster. Unable to solve the outfield problem, Hanwha selected veteran Kim Kang-min in the fourth round. SSG’s decision was a nail in the coffin for fans, and Kim Sung-yong, the team’s general manager, was pushed out as the head of the R&D center, his former developmental team, due to the controversy surrounding the second round draft process. It was a shock to fans and teammates, as well as to Kim himself. Kim contemplated retirement, but changed his mind and decided to stay with Hanwha to burn one last flame.

These unpredictable stories have brought a new narrative to baseball and will likely increase interest in the second round of the draft. But it also leaves us with a challenge. There is a loophole that allows teams to avoid drafting veterans in the secondary draft two years from now by labeling them as “contemplating retirement” in the remarks section. The KBO reinstated the secondary draft and added a clause stating that players selected in the first and second rounds have a mandatory registration period for the first team, but there is no way to fix this.

“I would like to see senior players honored, not only for the sake of the players but also for the sake of the fans,” said a club official. “Just as young players under the age of three are automatically protected, we need to think about protecting players who have played for a certain amount of time, such as 15 years.” Others disagree. “The unpredictability is what makes the secondary draft so exciting,” said one baseball player, “and if you want to honor the fans and the players, make them protected.”

That’s not all. There is also a need to prevent players from intentionally declaring free agency to increase the number of players on the secondary roster when they already have verbal contracts. Oh Ji-hwan, 33, who had already agreed to a multi-year contract with LG, filed for free agency, allowing LG to reduce its roster by one player. “Going to the free agency market when you have a specific amount of money and a specific period of time with LG is actually an act of tempering and disrupting the market,” said a club official. “By choosing free agency instead of a multi-year contract, Oh Ji-hwan was able to lower his grade in the next free agency contract and get a favorable contract.”

The KBO plans to create a system with no loopholes. “Regulations related to the secondary draft are something that needs to be amended to the baseball rules,” said a KBO official, explaining, “It may not happen until early next year at the earliest, as we need to open an executive committee and then go through a board of directors with the president.”

ML NPB Ex-SSG mercenaries without making a debut in Korea, 5G ERA 5.40 even in his hometown

Eni Romero, who signed with SSG Landers but was released before making his debut due to injury, is reportedly struggling in his homeland.

“Romero is playing in the Dominican Republic Winter League, but is struggling,” Japan Full Count reported on March 25 (KST).

SSG signed Romero ahead of this season. They signed him for a total of $1 million ($800,000 salary, $200,000 option). He was expected to be the first starter, but he complained of shoulder pain while pitching in a practice game during the second camp in Okinawa, Japan. After that, he disappeared.

He rehabbed in the U.S., but the news was not encouraging, and Romero was not seen in the exhibition games.

Finally, in early May, the SSG made a decision. They signed Roenis Elias (34).

Romero was a concern before signing, as he had a history of back, forearm, and shoulder injuries. In 2020, while playing for the Junichi Dragons in Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball League, he suffered a shoulder injury that forced him to leave the team before playing a single game. He signed a minor contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2021, but returned to Japan in June of that year. He appeared in four games as a substitute for the Chiba Lotte Marines, posting one win. Last year, he went 8-9 with a 3.36 ERA in 20 games and 115 innings pitched.레모나토토

And he was headed to South Korea. SSG double-checked him due to his injury history, but ultimately released him without ever using him.

This year, Romero is playing for Leones del Escogido in the Dominican Republic Winter League. He pitched 4⅓ scoreless innings in his first game on October 19, but has since given up runs in four straight games.

He gave up five runs on eight hits (one home run) in 3⅔ innings, one run on four hits in five innings (his first win), six runs on seven hits in two innings (his first loss), and two runs on four hits (one home run) in five innings (his second win).

As of the 25th, he is 2-1 with a 5.40 ERA in five games and 20 innings pitched.

“Romero has gotten wins, but he’s been giving up runs, including home runs,” said Full Count.

From Kim Min-seok to Jeon Mir, Lotte Giants’ Sajik Idol and fans’ shouts and laughter ‘Sajik Entertainment Hall’

From Kim Min-seok to rookie Jeon Mir, the Lotte Giants’ Sajik idols gathered.

The Lotte Giants held the 2023 Lotte Giants Fan Meeting ‘Sajik Ohakwan’ at Lotte Cinema Busan on the 10th floor of Lotte Department Store on the 25th.

Hosted by cheerleading coach George Hoon, eight players – Shim Jae-min, Lee Jung-hoon, Choi Joon-yong, Jin Seung-hyun, Son Sung-bin, Yoon Dong-hee, Kim Min-seok, and Jeon Mir – attended and had a great time with 270 fans.굿모닝토토 도메인

Coach Kim Tae-hyung made a video greeting, saying, “Welcome to the fan meeting and thank you for your love even before I was confirmed as the coach, and I promise to show you fall baseball next season.”

With the appearance of the players, the fans enjoyed a full-scale resignation entertainment.

Rookie Jeon Mir threw out the ceremonial first pitch, and fans cheered at the ‘Fan PICK 2023 Best Moments’ video selected by fans.

Yoon Dong-hee wanted to change her entrance music, so she asked fans for their suggestions and chose Champion of the Cage.

Kim Min Suk’s dog, Milky, drew cheers from fans when he revealed that he likes to take walks, doesn’t bark, and feels good when he sleeps with him.

Choi Joon Yong’s “Eat sweets without touching” started the “resignation entertainment” with fans, while Son Sung Bin and Yoon Dong Hee’s “Hold a tissue for a long time” was not what they thought it would be.

In the “Call Back Challenge,” Jin Seung Hyun was the first to receive a call from pitching coach Kim Sang Soo, and he roared louder than in the ballpark. Kim Sang-soo thanked the fans over the phone and said, “Next year, we will try to win the championship for the first time in 32 years.” A disappointing second place went to Yoon Dong Hee, who called Han Dong Hee.

In the ‘Song Title Quiz’, Kim Min Suk was confused by a song he didn’t recognize, and in ‘Speak with Your Body’, Kim Min Suk’s full-body performance made fans laugh.

Shim Jae Min and Lee Jung Hoon, who finished last in the resignation quiz, turned fans into photographers by posing for cute pictures with their “life necklace” poses.

The players ended the event by taking a commemorative photo with their fans and signing autographs.

You can check out the video for more details of the ‘Sajik Orakkan’, which lasted more than two hours and was attended by Sajik idols and fans.
