I’m happy to come all the way here so that fans won’t be disappointed. It is the first Korean series to be held at KT Wiz Park. We will prepare well to rise to the top position with the club’s front desk and fans, he said.
Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop said, Kt Wiz, who will play this Korean Series together, has a good experience of winning the integrated title two years ago. It is a team that came up to the Korean Series after playing well with solid power and starting baseball. I don’t think it’s easy. Although LG lacks experience, it was able to confirm its desire and eagerness to win the championship in the preparation process for the Korean Series. I will also show you my performance in the pennant race in the Korean Series. I plan to focus on what we’re good at. We prepared a lot. We will do our best to show what we have prepared at the end and laugh with our fans with good results, he said.
