Kim Seo-hyeon (19), a high-class rookie pitcher of the professional baseball team Hanwha Eagles who throws a fastball, was disciplined by the club after it became known that she spoke behind the scenes, including abusive language, towards coaches and fans through an Instagram account.
On the 7th, according to online communities, etc., Mr. A, who called himself a pitching analyst, disclosed the contents posted on the presumed sub-account of Kim Seo-hyun’s Instagram through SNS.
Afterwards, Hanwha belatedly started to find out the inside, and as a result, it was confirmed that the account was Kim Seo-hyun’s own account. A Hanwha official said, “As a result of the interview with the player, it was revealed that the sub account was correct. First of all, we are focusing on understanding the contents internally.”
According to the SNS, Kim Seo-hyun said, “The coach said he was late XX. He said he didn’t eat if he wasn’t late. XX. Why did people not wear number 11? XX. I can understand why you continue to smoke.”
The reference to ‘number 11’ here seems to be referring to Kim Seo-hyun’s uniform number controversy. Previously, Kim Seo-hyun engraved number 11 on her glove, which was the uniform number of the late Choi Dong-won, who was considered her role model, but it was the uniform number already used by Nam Ji-min (21, Hanwha Eagles) in the team. 메이저사이트
Regarding this, some baseball fans said to the effect that “it is not right to covet a senior’s uniform number,” and there was a controversy among fans, but Kim Seo-hyun eventually wore the number 54 and the controversy subsided.
In addition, self-proclaimed analyst A uploaded a photo of netizens’ comments about Kim Seo-hyun’s uniform number controversy and said, “Thanks to that, I hate number 11. I sarcastically said, “I give XX to respect my favorite number.”
On the same day, the Hanwha club said, “Kim Seo-hyun, who posted inappropriate posts such as disrespect for fans through social media, was excluded from group training for three days.” It is also known that he even imposed a fine according to his own bylaws.
Kim Seo-hyun, from the Seoul High School baseball team, is a top-notch prospect who joined Hanwha after receiving the first overall nomination in the 2023 KBO rookie draft last year.
His official maximum redemption was 159 km, and he received close to 500 million won in deposit alone, but he had a major accident before he even debuted on the first team stage.
It can be seen that it is really unfortunate for Hanwha, where bad news overlaps. In Hanwha, Ha Joo-seok, who had a ‘helmet throwing incident’ last season, was caught driving drunk in November last year.
Kim Seo-hyun is still a 19-year-old young man with a promising future, but on the contrary, if he cannot control his emotions, he must keep in mind that he can only end his baseball life as a promising player.
Hanwha coach Subero said, “He wants to tell me that there is no player greater than the team. I hope that young Kim Seo-hyun will learn and realize something through this mistake.”
