Busan, the ‘ball city’, was hotter than ever.바카라

The 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League All-Star Game was held at Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan on the 15th. It was a ‘festival of stars’ that returned to the ‘old city’ of Busan after 16 years since 2007, and the heat in Sajik was commensurate. All seats at Sajik Baseball Stadium were filled before the game, and the total number of spectators on the day was 22,990.

There is no batting lineup to overcome the ‘Jenny-Newzins-No-Swords’

The players didn’t stand still either. They enjoyed the festivities by preparing various performances for the fans of the 10 teams who sang their supporters’ chants.

Samsung’s Koo Ja-rook led off the game’s first at-bat, wearing a long hair wig and performing a choreographed dance to NUJINS’ ‘Attention’. The performance was prepared after fans commented on his resemblance to NUJINS member Minzy.

NC’s Kim Joo-won came to bat wearing a lamb’s ear helmet like a ‘switch hitter’ and switched between the left and right side of the plate with every pitch. His helmet also had a special meaning as it was handmade and presented to him by an NC fan who came to the stadium dressed as a dinosaur and is known as the “dinosaur seat” among fans.

Lotte’s Kim Min-seok’s turn was the highlight. Kim, who is known as the club’s Black Pink’s Jenny lookalike, made a promise on the club’s YouTube channel to perform Jenny’s dance at the All-Star Game, and he kept it. He performed a dance he had been practising to Jenny’s “SOLO” with the Lotte mascot, and won the All-Star Performance Award.

Noh Jin-hyuk, the other protagonist with home field advantage, was no slouch either. He lived up to his nickname, “Noh Prosecutor,” and showed up in a prosecutor’s uniform carrying a furoshiki. He took out a helmet from inside the furoshiki and put it on with a stern expression, looking like a real prosecutor and drawing applause.

◆ Hyo-ja enjoys the K-All-Star Game

There were a total of five foreign players at the All-Star Game. They have adapted to Korean baseball perfectly and enjoyed the festivities of the K-All-Star Game.

KIA’s Socrates Brito was the first to start. Teammates Choi Ji-min and Lee Woo-sung made an appearance, blowing trumpets to their own cheer. It was an homage to the original song, ‘Narco’ by Australian musician Timmy Trumpet. The crowd responded by singing the cheer along with the ‘Siyot Dance’. He immediately followed it up with a three-run shot against Park Se-woong.

Samsung’s ‘ace’ David Buchanan received the baton. He made his mark early in the game with his dance with Austin Dean (LG) and his appearance as a baserunning coach. During a mid-game video commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice, he appeared in a US Air Force pilot outfit and sunglasses to a rousing ovation.

The highlight was Buchanan’s debut in right field. In the bottom of the eighth inning, Buchanan ran from defence to the outfield and stole the show with a spectacular defensive catch of a big hit. In the top of the ninth inning, he showed off his all-around game at the plate with a single against LG’s Ko Woo-seok.

In addition, Eric Peddie (NC) made everyone laugh by delivering a message in his proprietary Gyeongsangbuk-do dialect before taking the mound, and Jose Pirela (Samsung) made a cute appearance with his daughter in a kindergarten outfit. The night of the resignation was hotter than ever with the stars’ active fanservice.z
