In a trembling voice, Won Sang-hyun said, “I was finishing up my first year of high school, and when I saw KT senior So Hyun-jun, I realized I wanted to be a starter. Like senior So Hyun-jun, I want to become a player who represents the team and the league in the future.” I received applause.

Hyun Joon said through the club, “I’m probably nervous, but I’m grateful and honored that my name was mentioned in such a big event. I hope to join the team in the future, train and compete together, and move forward together to win another championship. Welcome to KT. “He cheered for his junior’s new start.

KT evaluated Won Sang-hyun as “a right-handed pitcher with excellent athletic ability, a fastball of up to 150 km/h and a stable breaking ball. He also has excellent game management skills, such as aggressive pitching from the mound, and has immediate power.”
