Ryu Hyun-jin, who finished the 2023 season in good health, returned to Korea through Incheon International Airport on the 18th. Ryu Hyun-jin, who appeared at the arrival hall with his wife and two children, conducted an interview amid the cheers of many fans gathered at the airport.
Ryu Hyun-jin, who expressed his thoughts on the end of the season, was asked about the baseball team that won four consecutive Asian Games. The national baseball team, led by coach Ryu Joong-il, won the gold medal by defeating their rival Chinese Taipei in the finals of the Asian Games.
Even while traveling between the U.S. and Canada for the season, Ryu Hyun-jin also watched the national baseball team play. He said that because it was mid-season and there was a time difference, he couldn’t watch all the games in full, but he watched the highlights and cheered them on.
Ryu Hyun-jin said, “I didn’t watch the full game, I only watched the highlights. We mainly played with young players and gave them a valuable gift of a gold medal. I think this win will be of great help as those players will have to lead Korean baseball in international competitions in the future.” .
There was also a question about Lee Jeong-hoo (Kiwoom), who is challenging the Major League Baseball (MLB). Lee Jung-hoo, who reigned as the best hitter in the KBO league after his professional debut, began full-scale preparations for advancement to the MLB.
There is already talk that several prestigious teams, including the New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants, LA Dodgers, and San Diego Padres, are interested.
Ryu Hyun-jin predicted Lee Jeong-hoo’s soft landing in MLB, saying, “He is the best hitter in Korea and is recognized by everyone, so I think he will be competitive enough if he adapts quickly.”
Meanwhile, Ryu Hyun-jin plans to take a break for a while and then begin training for next season.
