For the first time in Korea, GG → Battle for the truth of the assault → No award ceremony → Failure to reunite with the teacher ‘What’s going on’… Kim Ha-sung’s grim end of the year

Kim Ha-sung, 28, has finally pulled out of the ceremony. It was the last award ceremony celebrating South Korea’s first Major League Baseball Gold Glove winner, but he didn’t show up.

On Aug. 8, Ilgoo held the ‘2023 Nutriday Ilgoo Award’ ceremony at the Rivera Hotel Versailles in Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.

The organization honored Kim Ha Sung as the recipient of the Special Achievement Award.

This season was a banner year for Kim, who had a career-high season, batting .260 with 17 home runs, 60 RBIs, and 38 stolen bases in 152 games.

Kim, who set the record for most stolen bases in a single season by a Korean major leaguer, shined on defense. In addition to his primary position at second base, he also played shortstop and third base, showing off his impeccable defense. His value as a utility player earned him the National League Gold Glove for utility players. It’s a record. Not only was he the first Korean to win the glove, but also the first Asian infielder.

And the gold came home with him. Since returning home in October, Kim has been busy holding press conferences, appearing on television, and attending awards ceremonies.

However, there was a setback. Recently, an assault allegation surfaced.

The incident happened two years ago. Kim got into an argument with Lim Hye-dong, a junior player at Kiwoom, over drinks, and the junior player demanded a settlement for the assault. Kim paid a substantial settlement, but Lim continued to demand money, and Kim sued him.

Kim’s agency, Summit Management, released a statement on July 7, saying, “As reported, Kim Ha-seong has been subjected to continuous blackmail and threats from a junior player. He filed a complaint, and as of yesterday (June 6), he appeared at the police station and completed the investigation of the complainant.”

Then came Lim Hye-dong, who claimed to have been “repeatedly assaulted”. He made the claim on a YouTube channel on the afternoon of the 7th.

The two sides have been at loggerheads, leading to a battle for truth.

After much deliberation, Kim Hae-sung decided not to attend the ceremony. An official from the ceremony explained, “He was thinking about it until this morning, and then he announced his absence.” The Ilgukhoe Awards is the last award ceremony for overseas fans. Only the Golden Globe Awards, organized by the KBO, remains. For Kim Ha-sung, it will be his last official appearance, but he will not be able to attend.토토사이트

Kim’s absence caused a bit of a hiccup in the proceedings. When Jung Geun-woo, who was to present the award, tried to take the podium, the hosts stopped him. They only announced the winner, Kim Ha-sung, and then moved on to other awards.

As he walked up and down the podium, the hosts asked for his understanding and allowed him to return to the stage. Although he didn’t receive the award, Jung left with a message of support, saying, “I won the Gold Glove this season as a utility player, but I hope to win it as a shortstop next year.”

He was also disappointed that his meeting with Eunsa was canceled. On the same day, Seongnam Daewon Middle School coach Park Gun-soo received the Ama Leader Award, and Eun-sa coached Kim Ha-seong at Bucheon Middle School.

Park applauded Kim’s performance, saying, “I’m so proud and honored,” as Kim was unable to attend.

After the ceremony, Kim’s camp released an official statement. “It is completely untrue that Kim Ha-sung unilaterally and repeatedly assaulted the other player,” said Kim’s legal representative, Choi Sun Law Firm, “The other player should file a formal complaint if his allegations are true. Kim Ha Sung will sincerely declare his innocence, and we will thoroughly hold him accountable for any false accusations,” he said.

Coming off his happiest season yet, Kim was expected to end the year with much celebration. However, he is facing a bleak end to the year with the reef of the assault truth battles.

‘FA Negotiations’ LG Lim Chan-kyu “Happy just to want you to stay.”

The LG Baseball Organization’s courtship of right-handed pitcher Im Chan-kyu, 31, who hit the free agent market this winter, is in full swing. Negotiations with other teams have been relatively quiet.

A former LG Twins fan who realized his dream of becoming a professional athlete, Lim has played exclusively for LG from 2011 until this year. Because of this, there is a general consensus that a move to another club is unlikely.

LG fans and players are hoping that he will stay with the team, as he has become a representative star of LG and has reached his peak this year.

Speaking to reporters after winning the best pitcher award at the 2023 First Baseball League Awards ceremony held at Rivera Hotel in Gangnam-gu, Seoul on April 8, Im said, “I’m happy when I’m told that I’m the player the team needs. Not only the manager, coach, and general manager, but also my teammates want me to stay, and that’s the greatest happiness.”

“I feel like I’ve had a good life at LG for 13 years. It’s great to be welcomed by people who are like family,” he smiled.

At the Ilgoo Award ceremony, LG CEO Cha Myung-seok and Lim Chan-gyu, who are close friends, joked about free agent signings.

“The 1.2 million spectators were difficult, winning the championship after 29 years was difficult, but the most difficult thing was signing Chan-gyu Lim as a free agent,” said Cha, who took the podium on behalf of LG, which received the Front Award, and said, “Let’s get a stamp while we’re here,” causing the audience to laugh.굿모닝토토

In response, Lim Chan-gyu, who said, “I left my stamp at home,” said, “It’s not that it’s difficult to negotiate with me, but I think it’s difficult to measure my (value). The agent only met me once, and he said it in a respectful tone. I’m really grateful.”

In fact, Cha and Lim reportedly only met once.

Cha delayed negotiations for a group report, and Im’s agent, Lee Yerang of Ricoh Sports, is currently in the United States. Negotiations are not expected to move forward until Lee returns home.

“I know that Lee Yerang and the general manager met once and talked on the phone once, so there hasn’t been much talk yet,” Lim said, adding, “I think something will happen next week.”

“Every player probably wants to sign quickly, but there’s no rush. I’m going to think about it calmly and work out,” he said.

When asked if there were any offers from other clubs, Lim Chan-gyu said, “It was quiet,” and then added, “Isn’t it going to be an atmosphere of signing with LG?” to show his intention to stay.

Im, who was also eligible for free agency after last season, went 6-11 with a 5.04 ERA and waived his rights.

After opting for “free agency bad luck,” Lim had his best year yet this year. He posted a respectable 14-3 record with a 3.42 ERA in 30 games, and won the unified championship for the first time since his professional debut.

“The afterglow was stronger about 10 days after the championship than it was immediately afterward,” says Lim. I was busy here and there, but when I had a little time to watch the video, I got emotional,” he said, adding, “I want to win with LG next year and the year after.” He expressed his love for the team.

Lim Chan-kyu, who won the Rookie of the Year Award at the 2011 Ilgusang Awards, emphasized, “I wasn’t consistent, there were ups and downs, but I was able to come back to the Ilgusang Awards based on that experience.” “I think it will be an opportunity to come back often in the future,” he said.

Hanwha Noh Si-hwan, who nodded at NC Son Ah-seop, said, “Senior is a genius.”

Hanwha Eagles’ Noh Si-hwan (23), the “home run king,” has paid tribute to NC Dinos’ Son As-seop (35), the “batting king.

Noh had a year to be proud of. In 131 games in the 2023 season, he batted .298 with 153 hits, 31 home runs, 101 RBIs, and an OPS of .929, leading the league in home runs and RBIs.굿모닝토토 주소

With his breakout season under his belt, Noh made his mark at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games and the 2023 Asian Professional Baseball Championship, batting fourth in the lineup. At the Asian Games, he won a gold medal.

Noh was recognized as the best hitter of the 2023 season by baseball’s elders. He received the award for best hitter at the 2023 Korean Professional Baseball Retired Players’ Day, organized by the Korea Baseball Retired Players’ Association (KPA), held at Hotel Rivera Cheongdam Versailles Hall in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, on July 7.

Speaking to us after the ceremony, Noh said, “I’ve received a lot of awards lately, so I’m spending a lot of happy days. I feel like I’m running out of awards, but I’m always grateful. Even though I’m busy these days, I’m happy and it’s so good.”

At the awards ceremony on Nov. 4, Noh Si-hwan and Son As-seop’s hilarious interaction was a highlight. At the 2023 Daily Sports-Joa Pharmaceutical Baseball Awards, Noh playfully taunted Son that he should be nervous as he aimed to be the batting champion. In response, Son Asob said, “(Noh) Si-hwan taunted me at another award ceremony. I want to tell him that he can’t beat me in this lifetime.” He responded.

Noh responded, “I’m no match for you now. You have a great record. I’m the same age as you, but we should see what happens in 12 years. Later, when I’m your age, we’ll talk again,” he laughed.

Noh, who usually talks to Son about baseball, also expressed his admiration. He said, “You have so many contacts. We talk a lot about baseball, and he’s a genius. If you ask a lot of players what they think when they’re hitting, they have their own strike zone. But you see the ball and you hit the ball. I think it’s genius and talent,” he admired.

“I’m not a genius, I’m a hard worker. It’s a case of growing up a little bit. I learned a lot from Coach (Johnny) Washington when he was on the team about setting up my own strike zone at the plate.”

On his plans for the offseason, Noh said, “I remember the process of preparing for the last offseason. We did well this year, so we’re going to prepare similarly this time. I’m confident that if I grow every year, I can do better next year than this year. I will prepare well.”

Will they give you everything? NYY-SD is close to making a Soto trade

The Juan Soto (25) trade that was sure to happen is imminent. The New York Yankees appear to have met the San Diego Padres’ demands.

The New York Yankees and San Diego are close to finalizing a trade for Soto, MLB Network reported on Sunday.토토사이트

It noted that the deal includes both Michael King (28) and Drew Thorpe (23), which San Diego was asking for. It also includes an additional player.

This shows how badly the Yankees wanted to acquire Soto. Both King and Thorpe are right-handed pitchers, a resource the Yankees wanted to keep.

Soto underperformed last year after being acquired from the San Diego Padres. His OPS dropped to .778 after posting a .894 mark in Washington.

However, Soto bounced back this season, hitting .275 with 35 home runs, 109 RBI, 97 runs scored, 156 runs batted in, a .410 OPS, and a .930 slugging percentage in 162 games.

He’s an all-around hitter with contact, power, and a good eye for the ball. The good eye for the ball in particular means he’s not likely to go down easily.

King is a 1995-born right-handed pitcher in his fifth year in the majors. Last season, he pitched 104 2/3 innings in 49 games with a 2.75 ERA.

Thorpe, a right-hander born in 2000, was equally impressive last season, posting a 2.52 ERA in 139 1/3 innings at the high Single-A and Double-A levels of the minor leagues.

The Yankees will likely go all-in on Yoshinobu Yamamoto, 25, after this trade. This is because they need to fill the mound vacated by the addition of Soto.

Seo Geon-chang Releases LG, Heroes U-turns again? Between romance and reality

Can infielder Seo Geon-chang, 34, who was released by the LG Twins, rejoin the Legion of Heroes?

Seo is currently without a team. The second baseman was named the 2014 Korean Baseball Organization Most Valuable Player (MVP), but his performance plummeted and he was removed from the LG roster in 2024. Being removed from the roster means that the team has no intention of re-signing him. He delayed exercising his free agency rights after this season, but was unable to avoid being released.굿모닝토토 주소

As a “free agent,” Seo can switch teams without restrictions. However, it is doubtful that any team will be eager to sign him. His batting average in the last two seasons is just .216 (71 hits in 329 at-bats). The precision hitting he displayed in his prime is nowhere to be seen. Even this season, he’s batting just .200 (22-for-110) in 44 games. His on-base percentage (0.260) and slugging percentage (0.282) combined for an OPS of 0.542, a far cry from league average (0.712). He was expected to be the opening day second baseman, but lost out to Shin Min-jae for the position. He ended up spending a lot of time in the Futures (second team) league and packed his bags after the season.

He is in his mid-30s. It was difficult for LG to wait for his rebound in the midst of an accelerated generational change in the position. It was the Kiwoom Heroes, his “home team,” who reached out to him. After hearing the news of Seo’s release, they were the first to express their intention to join him. Seo made his debut with LG in 2008, and after being released, he tried out for the team and wore the uniform of Kiwoom’s predecessor Nexen Heroes.

He made the leap to the main roster in 2012, and in 2014, he rewrote baseball history. With 201 hits, he became the first player to reach the 200-hit plateau in a season. He won the regular season MVP and the Golden Glove for second baseman that year, making him the best player in the KBO.

However, he has since been plagued by injuries, both major and minor, as well as frequent batting form modifications, and has been unable to recreate his former glory. Eventually, he was traded to LG in July 2021 for pitcher Chung Chan-heon. His status as a reserve free agent also played a role. Without a parent organization, the Heroes were unable to spend much money in the free agency market, so they used Seo as a selling point.

After being recruited by Kiwoom, Seo Jian-chang joined Django. While his return to Kiwoom may bring nostalgia, the team’s position competition must also be considered. Kiwoom’s current second baseman, Kim Hye-sung, has decided to switch to shortstop. While the second base position may seem like a free-for-all, it’s quite the opposite. Kim Hui-jip, Kim Tae-jin, and other competitors are holding out. The team recently acquired veteran Choi Joo-hwan in the second round of the draft, but his primary position is also second base. For Seo, the question is whether he can get playing time.

“When I got the news of his release, I called him first. I told him, ‘Isn’t it better to finish his career in our team?’ I told him to think about it and get back to me,” he said.

“Meeting Otani and talking for two to three hours, I felt good.” LAD manager confident, American reporters have 50-70% chance of choosing Dodgers

As free agent Shohei Ohtani (29) continues to meet with Major League Baseball teams, attention is turning to the outcome of his negotiations.

According to local media, the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, Toronto Blue Jays, and Los Angeles Angels are the four teams that have held initial talks with Ohtani.레모나토토 주소

The Dodgers are believed to be the first, with a meeting taking place last week. Dodgers general manager Dave Roberts confirmed this.

Roberts, who is attending the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings in Nashville, Tennessee, said in an interview with local media on June 6 (ET), “To be clear, Shohei is our top priority. We met with him a couple days ago at Dodger Stadium and talked for about two to three hours.” “We talked well, and I felt like we got to know each other. It was great to spend time with him.”

In particular, Roberts said, “I spoke with our medical staff, and we are confident that Shohei will return from his elbow surgery and resume pitching. We will sign him.”

The Dodgers have been the favorite to sign Ohtani for more than a year. They are the frontrunners among his latest shortlist.

In addition to the Dodgers, Ohtani also met with San Francisco officials on April 4. “Ohtani met with Giants brass yesterday at Oracle Park and toured the ballpark,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported. He was spotted with (retired) Buster Posey and new manager Bob Melvin.” ‘The Giants signed Barry Bonds to a six-year, $43.75 million deal 31 years ago, making him their most expensive player, and Ohtani is more than 10 times that,’ the Chronicle reported.

Bonds, who became a free agent in December 1992, signed a six-year deal to switch from the Pittsburgh Pirates to San Francisco. At the time, the $43.75 million was the largest contract in major league history. Bonds was previously named National League MVP twice, in 1990 and 1992. Ohtani joins Bonds as the second player in history to win two MVP awards in six full-time seasons and enter free agency.

The news that Toronto has entered the race for Ohtani comes as a bit of a surprise. The Athletic reported on Friday that “Blue Jays officials confirmed they met with Ohtani at their spring training complex in Dunedin, Fla. That means Toronto is among the finalists to sign Ohtani.

The Cubs are also reportedly preparing to meet with Ohtani, while the Angels have reportedly already made an offer. “A reunion between Ohtani and the Angels is still a possible scenario and the club is very active,” reporter Mark Paynesand told MLB Network on Friday, adding, “I’ve heard from several sources in the last 24 hours that Ohtani will eventually return to the Angels.”

Based on local media reports, the order of Ohtani’s recent meetings has been the Angels, Dodgers, San Francisco, and Toronto. While the order of the meetings is not necessarily indicative of the likelihood of a deal, there is no doubt that the Dodgers are still the favorite.

USA Today’s Bob Nightingale puts the odds of Ohtani signing with the Dodgers at 70 percent, while MLB Network’s John Heyman puts it at 50 percent. On the other hand, both Paintsand and Nightingale put the odds of him staying with the Angels at 20%.

“I don’t know if Ohtani still has a preference for the West, but it’s clear that winning history is the most important factor,” said Painesand, “He’s never played in the playoffs with the Angels, but there’s still a chance he could re-sign.

The signing of Ohtani is not expected to happen until after the Winter Meetings, possibly even before Christmas. “Ohtani plans to continue meeting with teams after the Winter Meetings, according to a senior source close to a team that is very interested in signing him,” Heyman reported.

“How Mature Can You Be This Mature” failed to win the Rookie of the Year award in 122 ⅔ innings, but… “Thanks to Dong-ju, I gained strength.” He applauded

After pitching more than 100 innings in his first year, Yoon Young-cheol (KIA) lost out on the KBO Rookie of the Year award to second-year middle reliever Moon Dong-joo (Hanwha). Despite the disappointment, Yoon was mature enough to accept the outcome, saying, “I was able to gain strength thanks to my brother (Moon) Dong-joo.”굿모닝토토 주소

Yoon received the ZOA Viton-A Award at the 2023 ZOA Pharmaceuticals Baseball Grand Prize Ceremony held at the Ellina Hotel in Nonhyeon-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul on April 4.

Selected by KIA as the second pick in the first round of the 2023 rookie draft out of Chungam High School, Yoon lived up to the expectations of the club and fans by posting an 8-7 record with a 4.04 ERA in 25 games. Despite only being a high school rookie, he consistently worked his way into the starting rotation with his precise delivery and calm demeanor, resulting in seven quality starts in 122⅔ innings pitched.

After receiving the award, Yoon told the press, “I didn’t believe in myself, but the manager believed in me and used me. Thanks to him, I was able to receive such a good award and achieve results.” “I am very grateful to the coach for believing in me. I will do my best to live up to his expectations next year.”

The most satisfying statistic of his debut season was his innings. “I originally aimed for about 100 innings at the beginning of the season, but I threw more than 20 more innings than that,” Yoon said. The most important quality of a starting pitcher is innings, so I am satisfied with this year’s record,” he said with a satisfied smile.

However, Yoon did not win the KBO Rookie of the Year award for his performance. The once-in-a-lifetime honor went to Moon Dong-joo (Hanwha), who received 85 votes out of 111 from the journalists.

Despite the disappointment, Yoon said, “I don’t really care. “Honestly, I knew my brother (Moon) would get it,” he said, adding, “This year, thanks to my brother, we were able to compete with each other and gain a little more strength. I think it’s good,” he said, showing his mature mindset.

Moon Dong-joo also won the Rookie of the Year award at both the KBO Awards and the Joa Pharmaceutical Baseball Awards, saying, “I’m grateful and sorry to Yoon Young-chul. It helped me a lot during the season because he competed until the end. I hope we can continue to compete in good faith and create good synergy in the future,” he said.

Next season, Yoon plans to take the mound again, focusing on his strengths over his fastball. To that end, he also focused on improving his physical strength in the final camp.

“I had a lot of physical deficiencies this year, so I ran and lifted weights a lot in the final camp. I gained a lot of physical strength and corrected my pitching form.” “I still don’t have any greed for redemption. It will come slowly. It’s important to do what I can without getting injured rather than overdoing it.”

Finally, we asked Yoon what award he would like to receive at next season’s awards ceremony. He said, “I would be grateful to receive any award. However, I don’t know when it will be, but I would like to win the best pitcher award once.” He left a bold ambition.

Head coach Kim Hak-beom of Hakbumson, who was appointed as a faltering Jeju captain, returns to the K League for the first time in six years

Former Olympic soccer coach Kim Hak-bum, 63, is returning to the K League after a six-year absence.

According to multiple soccer insiders, Kim signed a contract with Jeju on April 4, the day after the final match of the 38th round of the Hana OneQ K League 1 2023 and the day of the grand prize ceremony. Only an announcement is reportedly pending.레모나토토

Jeju, which finished ninth in the league in September after former coach Nam Ki-il resigned and played the remainder of the season under acting coach Jeong Jo-guk, quickly filled the managerial vacancy.

Jeju, which wants to win championships and develop youth, reportedly considered a number of candidates, including former U-20 national team coach Kim Eun-joong, before settling on the experienced Kim. Kim is considered to be a coach who specializes in managing players.

Kim returned to the K League after a six-year absence after leaving Gwangju FC in 2017. In the meantime, he coached the South Korean U-23 national team to a gold medal at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, before falling short in the quarterfinals at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

He has been linked to a number of K League clubs since his time with the U-23s, but hasn’t been able to connect with any of them before joining forces with Jeju.

Jeju is Kim’s fifth club in his 18-year coaching career. After coaching at Kookmin Bank, the Olympic team, and Seongnam, Kim took the helm of Seongnam Ilhwa (the predecessor to Seongnam FC) in 2005, leading the club to the 2006 K League title. After leaving for Henan Zhenye in China in 2010-2011, Kim took charge of Gangwon from 2012-2023, Seongnam from 2014-2016, and Gwangju in 2017. In total, Kim has coached 288 games in the K League, winning 118, drawing 84 and losing 86.

If Kim is appointed, he will quickly become the oldest manager in the K League 1. This year, the oldest was 54-year-old Ulsan coach Hong Myung-bo.

For Jeju, 2023 was a year of disappointment. The team parted ways with Nam in September after a string of poor performances. They barely made it to the final round. To avoid repeating their mistakes, Jeju decided to put their fate in the hands of a “charismatic leader.

“Career High → Three Taegeuk marks → Fall in Performance.” I lost 10kg. “Heartache,” but I even said goodbye to my spiritual support

SSG Landers’ Ji-hoon Choi has had a particularly difficult year. His grades dropped and he had to say goodbye to his moral support Kim Kang-min.

A graduate of Gwangju First High School and Dongguk University, Choi started his professional career with the SK Wyverns (now SSG Landers) with the 30th overall pick in the second round of the 2020 KBO Rookie Draft. In his third year as a professional, Choi played in all 144 games last season and had a career-high season, batting .304 with 10 home runs, 61 RBI, 93 runs scored, 31 stolen bases and an OPS of .789. It was his first triple-digit batting average and double-digit home runs.굿모닝토토

He also played in all six games of the Korean Series against the Kiwoom Heroes, batting .227 with five doubles, one home run, two RBIs, four runs scored, and an OPS of .625 to help them win the Wire-to-Wire League title and the overall championship.

These performances led to a call-up to the national team. Choi earned his first senior national team cap in March when he was named to the World Baseball Classic (WBC) squad. He was selected as a replacement for Choi Ji-Man and appeared in three games in the first round of the WBC. He batted .667 with two doubles, one triple, four RBIs, and a 1.467 OPS.

Choi has been SSG’s starting center fielder this season as well. Perhaps fresh off his WBC appearance, Choi looked to continue his momentum from last season with a 0.352 batting average in April, but started to struggle in May (0.217). In July alone, his batting average plummeted to .182. However, he rebounded in August and came alive in September with a .317 average.

He competed in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games in Hangzhou, China. Choi Ji-hoon, the most senior member of the Yankees, won a gold medal in six games, batting .524 with 11 doubles, one home run, five RBIs, six runs scored and a 1.209 OPS.

After finishing the season with 124 hits, two home runs, 30 RBIs, 65 runs scored, and a .268 batting average with a .672 OPS, Choi was immediately called upon to play fall ball for the team. In two semi-playoff games with the NC Dinos, he batted just .200 (1-for-5).

It didn’t end there. After the season, he earned his third tricolor of the year when he was named to the Asian Professional Baseball Championship (APBC) 2023 team in Tokyo, Japan. After going hitless in 11 at-bats in the three group games, he recorded his first hit of the tournament in his second at-bat of the final against Japan. Unfortunately, South Korea lost to Japan and finished as runners-up.

At the 2023 Magumagoo RealGlove Awards, Choi said, “I don’t usually tell people that I’m struggling. But this year, I want to tell you that I struggled,” he said.

The reason for this change of heart was a book given to him by a fan.

“I think I got it before I left for APBC. A fan gave me a book. It was a book that really resonated with me this year. I read it in my hostel in Japan, and I read it on the bus while traveling,” he said, adding, “In a way, it’s a little hard to love yourself in the job that I do. It’s like getting a report card every day. I got a couple hits today, I made a couple mistakes, and you get that 144 times a year, so there were more days where I was criticizing myself than praising myself, but reading this book helped me love myself, and it helped me pick myself up when my self-esteem was low.”

Furthermore, the fact that his performance dropped so low this year, right after his career-high season last year, was very stressful.

“Compared to the beginning of the season, I lost 10 kilograms of weight. It was very hard for me to improve my physical strength once it dropped, and I felt as if I had sinned against myself and was embarrassed. It was very difficult for me to do well one year, and then my grades dropped the next year, so I think my self-esteem dropped a lot.” Looking back, she said, “In this book, there were so many words that I could say to myself, ‘You are an amazing person, you are a good person, you can do it.’ I cried a lot while reading the book. I’ve recovered a lot now,” he said.

He’s ready to put his troubles behind him and focus on preparing for next season, but there’s a catch. Kim Kang-min, his mental support, was selected by the Hanwha Eagles in the second round of the draft. Choi Ji-hoon was Kim’s successor and was nicknamed “Baby Beast” after Kim’s nickname, “Beast.

“I was so surprised. Kangmin said, ‘Do well without your brother. You can do well, you can do well, because you’re playing here without your brother,'” he said. He said, “I don’t know if this is true, but I don’t know what kind of face I should make.” He was sad.

“I don’t know if this is the right thing to say, but I hope you have a really long and successful career. I’m sure your fans think so too. When you think of ‘Kim Kang-min,’ you remember him more for SK and SSG than for Hanwha. That’s why I hope you’ll continue to be Kim Kang-min even though you’ve moved to another team.” “I think it will be really emotional when you say hello in Incheon next year,” he concluded the interview.

Rushing to replace professional coaches in the first and second divisions…Who is the director of Suwon, Seoul, E-Land, and Gyeongnam

We’ve seen a lot of teams change head coaches at the end of the season. Most of them are due to poor performance. Not long ago, the mood of “no one is worthy” quickly changed.

There are now a lot of first division clubs looking for new managers. Jeju United, FC Seoul, Suwon Samsung, and others.레모나토토 주소

Jeju is one of the fastest moving clubs in the K League 1. It has already shortlisted candidates and presented them to its parent organization, and is waiting for a final decision. Head coaches Kim Hak-bum “Hakbumson” Kim and Kim Eun-joong, who guided the club to gold at the 2018 Asian Games, are on the shortlist.

Seoul, which has fallen to the lower division for four consecutive years, is looking at Kim Ki-dong of Pohang and Lee Jung-hyo of Gwangju, two of the top coaches in the K League, to replace Ahn Ik-soo. It will be interesting to see if ‘Wizard’ Kim Ki-dong, who has consistently produced good results despite a small budget at Pohang, will make the move to Seoul. Lee Jung-hyo, who led Gwangju to a third-place finish in the league this season and an elite qualification for the Asian Champions League, seems more likely to stay put. Suwon, who were relegated to the second division, will also have to be extremely cautious in their next managerial appointment. It was considered to hand over the reins to acting head coach Yeom Ki-hoon for next season, but it’s unclear if the club can afford a novice coach in the face of fan outrage. Yi was responsible for the relegation as both a player and a coach, so it’s hard to have confidence that a player-coach will be able to lead the team to promotion. In any case, Suwon needs a rebuilding level of determination, and it remains to be seen to what extent they can achieve it.

Suwon FC, which finished 11th in the first division and needs to beat second-place Busan I-Park in the promotion playoffs, is also expected to replace Kim Do-gyun. Gangwon (10th in the first division), who will have to battle Gimpo FC (3rd in the second division) for survival, is also not sure if Yoon Jung-hwan will stay with the club if they are relegated.

In the second division, there will be more managerial changes. Seoul Eland, 11th in the second division, recently fired Park Chung-gyun, who had only been at the helm for a year. The club is a corporate club and hasn’t gotten promoted in the last decade despite investing heavily in the organization. The club’s training environment, treatment, and player name recognition make it the top club in the second division. The club is looking at a variety of coaches, including Kim Eun-jung, who led the team to the quarterfinals of the U-20 FIFA World Cup earlier this year, and Kim Jeong-soo, a former Korea Football Association coach who led South Korea to the quarterfinals of the U-17 World Cup in 2019 after nearly a decade at the helm of the national teams at all levels.

Cheonan City FC, which finished last in its first season as a professional, parted ways with Park Nam-yeol. There is already talk that Busan IPark technical advisor Park Kyung-hoon, a Cheonan alumnus who has served as head coach of Jeju United and executive director of the Korea Football Association, will take the reins. Chungnam Asan ended its seven-year run with Park Dong-hyuk and, as expected, placed the K League’s first 50-50 club owner, Kim Hyun-seok, at the helm. Gyeongnam FC parted ways with coach Seol Ki-hyun, who led the team for four years. Park Dong-hyuk, who coached low-salaried players in Asan, Chungcheongnam-do, and consistently achieved mid-table finishes, is slowly being touted for the job.
