“You’re cute and pretty~” A man’s shy confession… KIA’s 27-year-old cutie ‘Ghost of Reversal

 “It’s cute and pretty~”

Are there any players that won’t hurt even if you put them in the eyes of KIA coach Kim Jong-guk? Among them, there is one that is particularly noteworthy. On the 18th (hereafter Korean time), coach Kim Jong-guk said, “(Hwang) Dae-in leads the team atmosphere at the Veterans Memorial Stadium in Tucson, Arizona, USA. Mood maker.”

Hwang Dae-in (27) was reborn as a full-time first baseman as soon as Kim took over as manager. In 129 games last year, he recorded a batting average of 0.256, 14 homers, 91 RBIs, 40 points, and an OPS of 0.716. He has to compete with long-term hitting power, but he has homework to improve his batting average of 2.5 and an on-base percentage of 0.315. He also needs to supplement his defense.

Because of this, he is facing strong challenges from latecomers such as Kim Seok-hwan and Byeon Woo-hyuk. 스포츠토토As long as there is no change, KIA 1st base is the land of Hwang Dae-in, but there is no permanent starting player. Knowing Hwang Dae-in, the 2023 season is extremely important. However, from the team’s point of view, it is unimaginable without Hwang Dae-in.

Manager Kim laughed and said, “Actually, whether the camp is long or short, it is difficult and tiring for the players. At that time, Daein seems to play a role in brightening the atmosphere to the players. We need players like that. Dae-in should go out with that kind of character.”

In the first half of last season, fans were shocked (?) when they were caught kissing Socrates Britto, a foreign hitter, after hitting a home run or a hit at the right time. After accidentally kissing, the blow went well, and it continued like a kind of jinx for a while.

Even coach Kim said of Hwang Dae-in, “Dae-in is a cute player. He seems to like the fans too. He is a player who can be looked upon cutely even if he makes mistakes. Even if you look at him in person, he is cute and pretty,” he said. As Director Kim said, Hwang Dae-in has a great physique and a cute face. He doesn’t know what he thinks, but his chubby cheeks are attractive.

However, coach Kim was sharp. He saw that Hwang Dae-in’s nature would not be like that. “Originally, Dae-in would not have a bright and lively personality. He has a soft side on the inside, but he seems to be trying to show off his bright side on the outside.” It can be seen as a case of an introverted office worker pretending to be active only on the outside for a smooth social life (?). Of course, we cannot know the real personality of Hwang Dae-in.

Anyway, coach Kim is grateful to Hwang Dae-in while directing the spring camp. I hope that not only Hwang Dae-in, but also other young players will treat baseball brightly, confidently, and energetically. Coach Kim said, “Young players must face each other without hesitation and with confidence. I hope he will not be afraid to make mistakes and show his skills.” Hwang Dae-in also greets his second year full-time like that.
