“I will give it to Oh Ji-hwan at the celebration.”
An expensive Rolex watch, a symbol of the LG Twins’ Korean Series (KS) victory and the club’s own special prize for the KS Most Valuable Player (MVP), has been the talk of the town.
After the end of the KS Game 5 on the 13th, the watch was unveiled in a safe.
However, KS MVP Oh Ji-hwan (33), who received the Rolex watch, decided to return it to the club’s owner, LG Group Chairman Koo Kwang-mo, instead of keeping it for himself.
Considering the meaning and symbolism of the Rolex watch, he said it would be better to display it for many people to see.
On the 15th, an LG team official said, “We have seen Oh Ji-hwan’s interview and understand the contents.
There will be a ceremony to deliver the Rolex watch to Oh Ji-hwan at the celebration scheduled for the 17th.
If Oh returns the watch, we will decide what to do with it after that.”
LG did not organize a separate celebration immediately after the KS Game 5.
They only had a late dinner at a restaurant near Jamsil Stadium. 카지노사이트가이드
The club organized a separate celebration in consultation with the group.
It will be held on the 17th at the LG Arts Center in Gangseo-gu, Seoul.
The Rolex watch was given to KS MVP in 1998 by the late LG Group Chairman Koo Bon-moo on a business trip abroad.
It took 25 years for the watch to find its owner.
It’s a very expensive watch, but now that LG has won the KS title, it has added intangible value.
It is housed at LG Champions Park in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do, but it is too precious to be displayed in a less than perfect storage facility.
I wonder if many people will get a chance to see this watch that took so many years to see the light of day again.
