Deok Soo Middle School and Shin Seong-hyeon, who graduated from Kyoto International High School in Japan, were selected in the 4th round by the Japanese professional baseball team Hiroshima. However, while Shin Sung-hyun did not see the light of day, he made a comeback in the independent baseball team Goyang Wonders, and joined Hanwha as a foster player in 2015.

Shin Seong-hyun said through the club, “It was never easy to choose to take off the professional uniform that I was fond of,” and “I made this decision to prepare for my second life.” He added, “I remember all the good moments and the sad moments. I am very sorry that I could not live up to the expectations of the Doosan fans who cheered me on more than anyone else.”

He is contemplating his post-athlete life. Doosan said, “We plan to support Shin Seong-hyun for the remaining 2023 front-line training by buying the professional consciousness that he trained harder than anyone else and the appearance of being an example to juniors.”
