“I wish we could be together again, even if it’s just for a year…” A dream come true! Park Kyung-soo and Woo Kyu-min, a veteran bromance, are as happy as if they were back in their 20s.

“I’ve said a lot of times that I wish we could be together, even for just one year, but I never thought it would become a reality.”

KT Wiz spiritual leader Park Kyung-soo (39) and veteran sidearm pitcher Woo Kyu-min (38) are reuniting. KT selected Samsung Lions pitcher Woo Kyu-min with the sixth pick of the first round in the recently concluded 2024 KBO Secondary Draft. KT President Nado Hyun said, “I expect a role as a veteran pitcher. I think there is no problem with his performance for 2-3 years.”

Park Kyung-soo and Woo Kyu-min boast a strong friendship that motivated them to join LG in 2003. Park was drafted in the first round after graduating from Seongnam High School, and Woo was drafted in the third round, 19th overall, after graduating from Humun High School.

However, the two players wore different jerseys when Park left LG after the 2014 season to join KT. Woo Kyu-min also left for Samsung after the 2016 season, but was reunited with Park when he joined KT through the second round of this year’s draft. If the two players do share the first team stage next year, it will be the first time since 2014.
In fact, even if Woo Gyu-min had come to KT, the two players might not have met, but with Park Kyung-soo signing on for another year with KT, they won’t have to worry about that. KT head coach Lee Kang-cheol and general manager Nado Hyun offered Park a deal: “Take the captaincy and stay for another year,” and Park accepted. Park will continue to serve as KT’s spiritual leader next year. 보스토토 주소

When we caught up with him at the 2023 KT Wiz Fan Festival, which was held at Seonsung Hall on Kyung Hee University’s International Campus, he said, “A few years ago, I jokingly and seriously said, ‘I hope we can stay together for a year,’ but I didn’t think it would become a reality. I’m so happy. I think it’s good for him and good for us that he came to us instead of going to another team. On the pitching side, we haven’t had a full veteran since (Ahn) Young-myung retired. We have a lot of young guys now, and I think Gyu-min will give us a lot of positive energy.”

I fell out of favor nine years ago, and now that I’m back in the fold, I’m happy to be back.
