“160 kilometers is big.”

Busan Sajik Stadium on the 15th. The KBO League All-Star Game was held with an all-star autograph session before the game. The line for Ki Sung-hoo Lee was by far the longest. Fans were also very interested in rookie Moon Dong-ju. In his second year, Moon has established himself as an integral part of the Hanwha starting lineup. He was recognized as the fastest pitcher in the KBO with a fastball that touched 160 kilometers.

He showed his dedication by getting up and signing autographs for fans in the pouring rain. Of course, he was not directly exposed to the rain because of the parasols, but it was interpreted as a sincere gesture for some fans who lined up in the rain. “I’m more comfortable standing,” he said when asked if he could sit down to sign autographs.

“I think I watched last year’s All-Star Game at home. I didn’t watch it all the way through, but I enjoyed it in the middle. Yesterday, Chae Eun-sung won the home run race, and it was good to see a senior from our team win. I’m going to the All-Star Game for the first time this year, and I’ll do my best.” 꽁머니사이트

I asked Moon Dong-joo what the secret of his popularity is. He gave me a straightforward answer. “160 kilometers is big,” he said. In real life, Moon has become a sensation with his fastball. Some say it’s better than the second year of Korea’s top pitcher, Ahn Woo-jin (Kiwoom).

Combine that with his good looks, good fan service and personality, and he’s exploding in popularity with Hanwha. At the fan signing, fans wearing other teams’ jerseys also asked for Moon’s autograph. “It’s a festival day,” he said of the requests for autographs in other teams’ jerseys. All-star status is well deserved.
