In November 2017, Hanwha was in trouble due to outfielder Kim Won-seok’s SNS controversy.
At the time, the contents of the conversation that Kim Won-seok had privately spread through the baseball community. Kim Won-seok became controversial for criticizing and ridiculing former Hanwha coach Lee Sang-gun, club cheerleader, and former President Moon Jae-in. Accordingly, Hanwha released Kim Won-seok after internal discussions.
At the time, an official from the club revealed the reason for Kim Won-seok’s release, saying, “Even if it was a personal conversation on SNS, which is a private space, we decided that decisive action was necessary as inappropriate conversations were spread.” Kim Won-seok, who caused a stir on social media, is unable to return to his professional stage.
Kim Won-seok Hanhwa, who suffered from SNS measles, was again at the center of controversy due to the SNS scandal. ‘Express rookie’ Kim Seo-hyun privately posted her complaints about the coaching staff and fans on her SNS, and as this information was recently known through the baseball community, the wave grew rapidly.
Kim Seo-hyun, who is participating in the spring camp at Bell Bank Park in Mesa, Arizona, USA, will be fined as well as excluded from training for three days.
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 the player admitted that it was his own writing.” He also added, “I want to tell you that there is no player greater than the team. I decided to take a disciplinary action after communicating with the front desk in the hope that young Kim Seo-hyun would learn and realize something through this mistake.” 토토사이트
Kim Seo-hyun, who caused the controversy over SNS comments, also needs a sharp reprimand. It’s not like Kim Won-seok has to give up the ‘notice of release’. It means that even a new player who has just graduated from high school must fully realize the responsibility he must have as a public figure.
If he hugs him because he is good at baseball, he will lose something bigger. Even if players make the same mistake, they should not give the impression that if they do well in baseball, they will be overlooked and if they do not, they will be punished severely. This is because not only does it hinder the atmosphere of the team, but even if you make a mistake, you can have a dangerous thought that just playing baseball is enough.
Someone sarcastically said, “I won’t listen to the nagging of the coach for 3 days” regarding Kim Seo-hyun’s exclusion from the 3-day training session. It means that it is not properly disposed of. The club is not without fault. One person pointed out, “This is clearly the club’s fault. The front desk exists to manage this well.”
