Resignation Jenny Kim Min-seok, 1-for-5 Buchanan… Full performance with 2 outs in the 9th inning★[2023 Baseball All-Star]
Ahead of the Korean Baseball Organization’s All-Star Game on the 15th, a “Pied Piper” appeared in front of Sajik Stadium. He was Lotte’s Kim Min-seok (19), the only rookie to be named to the All-Star ‘Best 12’ this year. The fans didn’t hold him back long, though, as he was bombarded with autograph and photo requests. They knew he had to get back to his “dance practice” as soon as possible.
Kim Min Suk, who has an uncanny facial resemblance to idol BLACKPINK’s Jenny, made the “Jenny Dance” as a pledge to play in the All-Star Game. Before batting first as the Dream All-Stars’ No. 9 hitter, he performed the choreography to Jenny’s song “Solo” with Lotte’s mascot “Winji” in a sword dance. Kim Min-seok received the Performance Award.

Earlier in the day, Samsung’s Koo Ja-uk, 30, who batted first as the Dream All-Star’s number one hitter, swayed his raw hair to Idol Newzine’s “Attention”. Kia’s Yang Hyun-jong (35), the Sharing All-Star starting pitcher, was the closest to “intuit” it.

Koo swung hard at a star-patterned bat to commemorate the All-Star Game, but the ball sailed high behind the plate. Koo sent a pleading glance to the opposing catcher, LG Park Dong-won (33), saying, “Please don’t catch me,” but Park didn’t listen.

But it was Guzauk’s Samsung teammate, Buchanan, 34, who really got the “attentions” on this day. Buchanan appeared as the third base coach and danced to Newzine’s “Howie Boy. He then transformed into Tom Cruise from the film Top Gun. In the second half of the game, he played right field and top hitter, making it a one-man, five-role day.

Buchanan was cheered by the 22,990 spectators who filled Sasik Stadium as he showed off a choreography that matched the beat as if he had been waiting for the song “Howie Boy” to come out while LG Austin, another “hottie,” was enjoying the dance time of “Sasik Karaoke” on the day.

Buchanan, who came in to defend in right field in the bottom of the eighth inning and deftly caught a fly ball from Oh Ji-hwan, came to bat in the top of the ninth inning, trailing 2-8, and drew a walk off single off Koh Woo-seok, the Nanu All-Star closer.

The Most Valuable Player (MVP) award went to Hanwha’s Chae Eun-sung, 33, who hit a grand slam with the bases loaded in the bottom of the fourth inning to give the Nanum All-Stars an 8-4 victory. Chae received 56 of the 61 votes in the journalists’ poll. It was the first time in 41 years since the first year of the Korean Baseball Organization (1982) that a grand slam was hit in an All-Star game. Back then, Kim Yong-hee (Lotte) hit a grand slam. Chae Eun-sung, who also won the home run race the day before, became the first player in baseball history to win the home run race and MVP of the All-Star Game.

Chae Eun-sung also had a chance to showcase her talents beyond the plate. After the fifth inning, a performance by the Naval Jinhae Base Command Drill Team took place on the field. While they were performing, Chae Eun-sung, who is also a former member of the drill team, took out her bat from the dugout and performed a rusty ‘gun spin’.
