“I also play baseball in Korea, but there are so many things I don’t understand. I don’t think forgiveness is easy in Korea.”
SSG Landers Choo Shin-soo (41)’s “remark” storm shows no sign of subsiding. On January 21, during the Lunar New Year holiday period, Choo Shin-soo appeared on a Korean radio station (DKNET) in Dallas, USA, and made controversial remarks about the composition of the KBO League and World Baseball Classic (WBC) national teams.
Choo Shin-soo said, “If you look at Japan, a nearby country, there are many new faces in international competitions. Kim Hyun-soo (LG) is a really good player, but if it were me, I would have seen the future. Another article came out,” summoned the WBC team coach Lee Kang-cheol and the KBO Technical Committee, as well as junior players such as Kim Hyun-soo, Kim Gwang-hyun, and Yang Hyeon-jong.
Choo Shin-soo is a player who is criticized for “eating from the national team” because he never responded to the call of the national team after receiving exemption from military service with the gold medal at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games. In the interview in question, he complained of injustice, saying, “I blame you without knowing the story,” but many point out that it is not persuasive. The point that ‘you have to look at the future’ can be refuted by Choo Shin-soo himself, who is continuing his active duty this year with an annual salary of 1.7 billion won at the age of 41.
Choo Shin-soo also expressed regret over Ahn Woo-jin (Kiwoom), who was eliminated from the national team due to past school violence. He said, “Ahn Woo-jin definitely did the wrong thing,” but “If a person made a mistake when he was young… He repented of his mistakes, he was punished, he was suspended, and he did everything, but he couldn’t go to the international tournament.” He said that the situation of not getting a chance to play is unfair.” 온라인바카라
