Wouldn’t the important thing be ‘Taiyaki’?

 The most profound worries continued. Maybe it was the moment that brought a new wind to Media Day. ‘Taiyaki’ was the main character.

 The Korea Professional Football Federation (hereinafter referred to as the Federation), which oversees the K-League, held the ‘Hana One Q K League 1 2023 Opening Media Day’ at The-K Hotel in Yangjae-dong on the 20th. It was a time to listen to the resolutions and goals ahead of the new season prepared throughout the winter. 메이저놀이터

 However, it was not very different from the previous media days. When answering a question, Suwon FC coach Kim Do-kyun said, “I think I heard it last season too.” It means that the stories to be told and the questions to be heard have become standardized. Actual on-site reactions are also dominated by the opinions of ‘obvious content’ and ‘events that are there’. Again this year, guessable questions and predictable answers came and went.

 There was a twist at the end. This year, in the face of the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) Endemic, we invited fans and embroidered the scene together after a long time. The federation selected two questions received from fans in advance, and the fans read them themselves and had time to communicate with the players and coaches.

 At this time, the first question was ‘Why our team is loved’. It was a time to remind ourselves of the fans, the reason for the existence of a professional team. The coaches and players realized the importance and value of fans again with their respective answers such as ‘Jeju Island’s emotion’ and ‘Gangwon-do Arirang’.

 White rice was the second question. One fan asked, ‘Do you eat Taiyaki from the head or the tail?’ Like Gangwon FC coach Choi Yong-soo, I thought, “Do I have to think about this in such a deep way a few days before the start of the season?”, but the atmosphere was more friendly than any questions or the last few media days. No matter what answer you give, you can be free from controversy or noise, so the coach and players wrote down their answers in a very comfortable atmosphere.

 Not only the atmosphere on the stage where the coaches and players sat, but also the media, officials, and fans who visited the scene, laughed at the unusual appearance and answers that could not be easily seen.

 As it is the opening media day, it is important to talk about the things prepared during the season in a somewhat rigid atmosphere, but it is also time to listen to the tastes of ‘our coach’ and the preferences of ‘our players’, which are not usually heard through the media or in official venues. It was the moment to confirm that there was a meaning.
