Park Geon-woo went to him and bowed his head… Only director Kang In-kwon’s call remained
“I met and talked to the director early.”
NC Dinos outfielder Park Geon-woo (33) opened his mouth for the first time after the work-esk controversy. Park Kun-woo visited Sajik Baseball Stadium in Busan to attend the ‘2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO All-Star Game’ on the 15th. Although he was concerned that the scene of the festival would fade due to his controversy, he responded to the controversy for the first time, albeit briefly. The specific story has been postponed until someday when the first group is called.
Park Kun-woo was excluded from the first team entry after the match against Suwon KT Wiz on the 2nd. In a situation where they had to fight for the top ranks, it was clear that Park’s departure would be a huge loss to the team, but NC coach Kang In-kwon made up his mind and moved.
At the time, coach Kang said, “It is true that (Park Kun-woo) complained of discomfort here and there last week. We decided that we needed time to go to sunset,” explaining the reason for the notification to the 2nd group, which led to controversy over the work style.
In June 2020, when he was playing for his former team, Doosan Bears, Park Kun-woo suddenly left the first team and aroused curiosity. At the time, former Doosan coach Kim Tae-hyung said firmly, “I was tired and wanted to rest, so I told him to rest. However, after transferring to NC, he was canceled from the first team again due to a similar problem, so he was hit harder.
Park Kun-woo has already visited Director Kang and had a conversation. Having a conversation means admitting his mistake and bowing his head. Park Gun-woo has no hesitation in apologizing for his mistakes. Regardless of the reason, it is true that he harmed the team atmosphere in a fierce battle for ranking, so he must have apologized for that.
The details of the conversation were saved, but the nuance that it was solved through a conversation with director Kang was conveyed. Park Gun-woo replied briefly, “I met and talked to the director early on. He even reveals what kind of conversation he had with the director.”
Yang Eui-ji (Doosan Bears), a catcher who knows both Kang and Park Gun-woo well, said, “It must have been because the coach had a message he wanted to convey. (Park) Geon-woo was a good player when he was with him, and I don’t think there will be any major problems. 1 I think he will do well after returning from the military.”
Now, only Director Kang’s choice remains. When the second half starts and coach Kang decides when to call up Park Kun-woo to the first team, it seems that Park Kun-woo will also stand in front of the reporters again and face the controversy. Park Gun-woo has maintained his sense of the game while quietly playing in the Futures League, and there is no pain.스포츠토토
NC finished the first half in 4th place with a record of 39 wins, 38 losses and 1 draw for the season, enduring despite the controversy over Park Gun-woo and the bad news of the starting pitcher’s line injury. The only thing left to do is to see whether coach Kang calls Park Kun-woo at the start of the second half to reorganize the team’s strength and atmosphere, or decide that more time is needed.
