“I need self-reflection, accept it”… Why did director Lee Seung-yeop belatedly cancel the ‘drinking scandal’ Jeong Cheol-won?

 “I talked to the club (to cancel), so I told them to accept it.”

Doosan Bears head coach Lee Seung-yeop explained the background of his expulsion of setup man Jeong Cheol-won (24) from the first-team entry prior to the match against Suwon kt Wiz on the 2nd. Jeong Cheol-won was known to have been drinking at a snack bar, an entertainment establishment, with Kim Gwang-hyeon (35, SSG Landers), a senior in the pitching team of the national team, during the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) tournament held in March. Kim Gwang-hyun and Jeong Cheol-won had an apology interview side by side on the 1st, and Kim Gwang-hyun is spending time on self-reflection after being canceled from the first team entry on the 1st.

Jeong Cheol-won was canceled from the first team entry the day after. Coach Lee intended to wait and see until the KBO decides whether to punish him, but after consulting with the club, he decided to exclude Cheol-Won Jeong from the team. Due to the circumstances of the Doosan mound, it is a big power loss for setup man Jeong Cheol-won to be missing, but it was judged that it was a problem the club had to endure.

Coach Lee said,메이저놀이터 “I decided that I might need time for self-reflection rather than going to the game now. Nothing has come out (regarding discipline), but as a result of talking with the club, I thought it might be time for a little self-reflection now.” .

He continued, “I told the player to accept it because he had talked to the club. He said that he should wait and see the situation until the results come out.”

As Jeong Cheol-won leaves, the burden on Doosan closer Hong Kun-hee (31) is expected to increase. Regarding the concept of Pil Seung-jo, coach Lee said, “In front of Hong Gun-hee, I basically judge whether Park Chi-guk would be good. It’s good. Hong Kun-hee is the only pitcher that can be decided, and I think I have to judge the rest while looking at it flexibly. It’s difficult,” he confessed his grievance.

As a director, he once again bowed his head on behalf of Jeong Cheol-won. Coach Lee said, “The core power is going out, and the club’s coaches and players will all have a hard time. But since our team’s players have become like that, of course, as leaders, they are students and teachers in a way. Of course, we must also feel sorry. We will watch the results.” said

On the 1st, Jeong Cheol-won apologized, saying, “I acted shamefully in a situation where many people were disappointed with the poor performance of the national team.”

“I will diligently participate in the KBO investigation and will accept any punishment or reprimand sweetly. In the future, I will set an example on and off the field and become a player who does not disappoint the fans. As a professional player and public figure, I will act with humility and sincerity.” promised.
