Is it true that Kim Seo-hyun is sincerely reflecting?
The Hanwha Eagles excluded Kim Seo-hyun, a “special top prospect,” from the spring camp held on the 7th (hereafter Korean time) at Belbang Park, Mesa, Arizona, USA. Kim Seo-hyun was unable to participate in training until the 10th and had time to self-reflect.
Kim Seo-hyun received a lot of attention from KBO League and Major League scouts, such as recording a fastball of 155 km/h in high school and a maximum of 101 miles (about 163 km) in the U-18 Baseball World Cup. Hanwha, who held the first overall pick in the 2023 rookie draft, chose Kim Seo-hyun without much trouble, and showed high expectations by holding a down payment of 500 million won. However, the ‘super rookie’ left a ‘blemish’ from the start of his pro career.
Kim Seo-hyun posted a post containing ‘swear words’ towards Hanwha coaching staff and fans through social media in January. It was posted on a private account, but it became controversial when the contents were leaked to the online community. The text written by Kim Seo-hyun contained complaints about the direction of the coach’s guidance and the reaction of fans related to the uniform number.
Upon hearing the news, Hanwha went through a confirmation process to see if it was written by the person himself, and Kim Seo-hyun admitted it. Coach Carlos Subero said, “Regarding Kim Seo-hyun’s social media activity, which has recently been controversial, we asked the player himself if it was true, and Kim Seo-hyun admitted that it was his own writing.”
Hanwha immediately took swift action by excluding Kim Seo-hyun from the spring camp training list. In addition, fines were imposed. “I want to tell you that there is no player greater than the team,” coach Subero said.
Kim Seo-hyun is just 20 years old in Korean age, just taking off her school uniform and wearing a professional uniform. When he doesn’t perceive the weight of immature behavior. Of course, he didn’t commit a ‘criminal’. He could see it as an imprudent act. However, the actions after that are important, and it does not seem that Kim Seo-hyun is self-reflection and self-reflection.
If you caused controversy through social media and damaged the atmosphere of the team, the right thing to do is to distance yourself from social media even for a while. Rather, I would hate to look at SNS. However, on the 8th, in the online community, a picture of Kim Seo-hyun who clicked ‘Like’ on the video posted on the club’s social media was posted despite the situation in which self-restraint is self-restraint. It’s not a wrong thing to do, but at least it’s a hard part to see with reflection.
Fans who were already disappointed with the behavior of criticizing the fans and the Hanwha coaching staff showed even greater disappointment after seeing a photo of Kim Seo-hyun liking the club’s post while on probation. Currently, Seohyun Kim has canceled likes on her club post. 메이저놀이터
The KBO held an orientation for new players in 2023 in January. KBO invited “Legend” Park Yong-taek to educate rookies on the mindset they should have as a professional player and the value and meaning of being a fan. Seohyun Kim also attended the orientation. Nevertheless, Kim Seo-hyun caused trouble from the beginning of his professional career.
Even if the clubs, including the KBO, warn and educate them several times, if the players do not fulfill them, all their efforts will be in vain. In the end, Seohyun Kim made the efforts of many people in vain. It is definitely a ‘special’ talent to command a fast ball that exceeds 150 km. However, Kim Seo-hyun’s behavior doesn’t seem to fit the modifier of a limited express.
Can Kim Seo-hyun, who once again acted with a short thought in a situation where she was in the middle of a rumor, sincerely reflect and change through repeated education? Now, there are bound to be more eyes watching Kim Seo-hyun’s actions closely.
