Pitcher Kim Seo-hyun (18, Hanwha), who is considered the biggest rookie in the 2023 KBO, posted an article criticizing coaches and fans on social media and was punished by the club.
On the 8th, the Hanwha club said, “Kim Seo-hyun, who posted inappropriate articles such as disrespect for fans through social media, was excluded from group training for three days from the 6th local time.” The club said it plans to impose fines in accordance with the bylaws.
Previously, on the 10th of last month, Kim Seo-hyun wrote on a secret social media account that only her acquaintances knew, “The coach said he was late XX, he said he didn’t eat if he wasn’t late XX. I can understand why you continue to smoke.”
Kim Seo-hyun wanted to wear the number 11 of her idol, the late Lotte player Choi Dong-won, but her senior Nam Ji-min (22, Hanwha) was already wearing number 11. They give me no respect for my number,” he complained.
The contents of these posts soon spread to the online community and caused controversy, and the Hanwha club announced that it confirmed that Kim Seo-hyun wrote the posts himself through its own investigation.
Coach Carlos Subero had an interview with Kim Seo-hyun and said, “I want to tell you that there is no player greater than the team. I decided to take this punishment after communicating with the front desk in the hope that young Kim Seo-hyun would learn and realize something from this mistake.”
However, Kim Seo-hyun confidently continued her SNS activities on the first day of probation as if there was no damage to the punishment. After pouring cold water on the team atmosphere through SNS, instead of keeping a distance from SNS, he immediately clicked ‘Like’ when a post on Hanwha Eagles’ official Instagram account came up. 바카라
Many fans who saw this commented, “If it’s noisy because of Instagram, I’d save my body, but my mentality is amazing”, “Not being able to participate in the 3-day training is just a vacation”, “Is no one around me giving advice?”, “Should I press that? Is it SNS addiction?”
Currently, Seohyun Kim has canceled the ‘Like’ of the post as if conscious of the controversy.
Meanwhile, Seohyun Kim, a graduate of Seoul High School, wore a Hanwha uniform with the first overall pick in the rookie draft last year. He drew attention last year by throwing a ball for 101 miles (about 163 km) at the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) U18 Baseball World Cup, and Hanwha also received a contract of 500 million won, the third largest ever for a rookie.
