When the Samsung players entered the venue, everyone was surprised and buzzed. This is because Samsung Oh Jae-il and Won Tae-in entered the venue wearing large necklaces reminiscent of those from the cable audition program ‘Show Me the Money’. 스포츠토토
At the ‘2023 KBO Media Day’ held at the Grand Hyatt Seoul Grand Ballroom in Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul on the 30th, players representing 10 clubs were together. Most players attended wearing hoodies or T-shirts, but Samsung was different. The thick silver chain necklace with the large ‘SL’ logo was a hot topic.
Oh Jae-il was embarrassed to cover his face with his hand from the time he entered. After greeting Park Jin-man and Won Tae-in from the center of the stage, I quickly moved to the Samsung seat. In the Samsung seat, there were Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop, Yang Eui-ji, and Heo Gyeong-min, who entered first.
Director Lee Seung-yeop tried to find a laugh after seeing his oversized necklace, but failed. Seeing it up close, it seemed even funnier. Yang Eui-ji touched Oh Jae-il’s necklace with his hand and laughed, saying, “What is this?” Oh Jae-il smiled shyly, saying, “It’s the first time I’ve worn such a large necklace. I’m embarrassed. The Samsung PR team told me to wear it, so I’m wearing it hard.”
LG Oh Ji-hwan and Park Hae-min were also fascinated by the necklace, and Oh Jae-il enjoyed touching the large necklace before sitting down.
Meanwhile, Samsung plans to use large necklaces for home run celebrations this season. Won Tae-in revealed the purpose of the necklace, saying, “I plan to hang it on the hitter who has hit a home run. I hope Jae-il Oh hits a lot of home runs and kicks a lot.”
