Jae-Won Oh (38), a baseball commentator who caused controversy with various remarks during the recent KBO league commentary, eventually put down the microphone himself.꽁머니사이트
On the afternoon of the 26th, Oh Jae-won said on his SNS (social network service), “I thought it would be a burden to SPOTV any longer, so I directly requested termination of the contract and it was decided. Thank you so far.” Oh Jae-won then added, “Now I feel like I’ve come to a situation where I can talk about all the behind-the-scenes things. For me, everything is restarting now.”
Oh Jae-won said, “I would like to ask all those who do not have or have made or made up for the number of views to wait a little bit. Please wait a little bit for those who have sent malicious comments for years or months by DM (direct message). In the meantime, listen to the insufficient baseball commentary. I would like to thank everyone who gave,” he concluded.
Recently, while broadcasting a game as a commentator, Oh Jae-won made a controversial statement and was put on the cutting board. The match between SSG Landers and Samsung Lions held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 24th. At the bottom of the 7th inning, Samsung and SSG were tied 7-7. Leading batsman Choi Jeong fired a left-handed solo shot against Samsung’s new pitcher Lee Seung-hyun. After that, Samsung’s bullpen collapsed, giving up 6 runs only in the bottom of the 7th inning, and Choi Jung-jae stood at bat again. Samsung’s changed pitcher is Yang Chang-seop.
After the foul on the first ball, the second and third balls all headed toward the body. On the 4th pitch, Yang Chang-seop’s fastball (146 km) went toward the body again and grazed Choi Jeong’s uniform. The referee acknowledged the ball hit by the body. Choi Jeong-eun looked at the pitcher for a moment, then walked to first base. Fortunately, the inning ended without a bigger collision, and the game ended as it was.
Commentator Oh Jae-won, who was relaying the game at the time, said, “This was an open hit. It’s fortunate that it rubbed my clothes. I hate this situation the most.” Eh, there is no need to apologize for this. As soon as I threw it, (no) it was strange from before.
However, after the game, Yang Chang-seop left a post through SNS and Oh Jae-won also registered a post, causing controversy again. First, Yang Chang-seop said, ‘Fish are always caught with the mouth. He posted a post with a phrase from the Talmud that says, “Human beings also take it through their mouths.” The post seemed to have in mind commentator Oh Jae-won, who concluded that the ball thrown at Choi Jeong was intentionally thrown.
Shortly thereafter, Jaewon Oh posted a post this time. Oh Jae-won posted a picture with a Talmud saying, “Fools talk about what they hear, and wise people talk about what they see.” It seemed to contain the meaning that he was just talking about what he saw.
On the next day (25th), the command towers of both teams started evolving over the sudden ‘Beanball Controversy’. Regarding Oh Jae-won’s commentary, Samsung coach Park Jin-man said, “I don’t understand that such a story is coming out. There was such a story (Oh Jae-won’s remarks) on the air. “We’re trying to figure it out. According to our analysis, we found that Choi Jeong was weak in the body, and that kind of pitch came out. As a result, Lee Seung-hyun threw a breakaway ball and hit a home run in Choi Jeong’s at-bat earlier.” Coach Park continued, “Where is the pitcher who throws to hit a home run? It’s to dig into the hitter’s weakness, but I don’t understand why the pitch itself causes controversy.”
SSG coach Kim Won-hyeong also said, “Regardless of yes or no, not only us but all teams play normal baseball these days even with a score difference. Looking at the KBO league in recent years, the culture is different from what we played baseball in our days. In our days, the mound There was also a situation where we were told to play baseball with a strong fighting spirit, and we felt sorry for each other. But now, it doesn’t seem like a situation where a player hits well just because he is good at it doesn’t seem to create a situation.”
◆ Baseball commentator Oh Jae-won, who was well-received for his honest talk, but… .Oh Jae-won, who took off his active uniform at the end of last season, transformed into a commentator and received favorable reviews from many baseball fans. Above all, he won the sympathy of baseball fans by revealing his professional opinion in every situation, not the obvious explanation. Sometimes he was so immersed in the baseball game that he exclaimed ‘Yoohoo’ every time a decisive goal was scored. Still, he gained a lot of popularity by approaching viewers based on the wide field of vision of an active player.토토꽁포인트
However, after that, he sometimes caused controversy by making remarks that seemed to cross the line. It all started when he made a statement to Park Chan-ho of the ‘Korean Express’. In an interview last May, Oh Jae-won said, “I hate the Korean Express so much. Now that I’m a normal person, I can talk about it.” The entire nation wakes up at dawn and cheers for him, and it seems that he doesn’t know how grateful he was.” “(Park Chan-ho) is not one or two players who have made a fool out of commenting once in a while. I don’t think he has ever taken responsibility for that,” he said. I didn’t even have a name,” he said.
At the time, Oh Jae-won also said, “Commentary is for a third party. I think the purpose is to convey the exact situation to the listeners when commentating.” The blow was very disappointing.’ It’s easy to let it happen. Also, words like ‘When I saw it…’ are only what you saw. Due to the feast of such irresponsible words, misunderstandings accumulate and it becomes an image. That kind of thing. I really hated it,” he said, representing the hearts of active players.
◆ Remarks towards Park Chan-ho → Remarks regarding the NC Dinos first pitcher Masan Middle School baseball player → Samsung-SSG Controversy over remarks regarding the ball that fits the bodyAt that time, Oh Jae-won apologized and bowed his head one day after the remark. Oh Jae-won apologized, saying, “I think it’s natural to think of those who were whipped for a day and must have been in a bad mood. I apologize once again to those who must have been disappointed and offended by the word ‘people’.” People)’s original intention was, “I also grew up seeing Park Chan-ho as an idol. My father and grandfather also cheered for him while waking up at dawn. Not only the players in the KBO league today, but also the parents of those players must have cheered for Chan-ho Park.” It’s clear. Because he was a hero at the time. The words of such a big star or great senior would usually resonate hundreds or thousands of times more than the words of someone like me (Oh Jae-won), and there would be many people who sympathized with them. So instead of public criticism, I called them separately and gave them advice. What if I did?’ was omitted. I will not avoid criticism and reprimand for this incident. And I will once again engrave deep in my bones that I must be more careful before speaking.” After posting his apology, Oh Jae-won seemed to have time for self-reflection by not appearing as a commentator for a while.
However, after returning as a commentator, his remarks were again on the cutting board. It was a remark made during the pitching process ahead of the match between NC Dinos and SSG Landers held at NC Park in Changwon last October. When the caster said that a player from the Masan Middle School baseball team who threw the first pitch at the time was supported by the NC Dinos and was dreaming of joining the NC, Jaewon Oh said, “But life isn’t that easy.” In response, the caster said, “Shouldn’t we say something warmer to the sprouts that are growing?” he replied, “I want to go up to Doosan, Seoul, or LG.” Afterwards, Oh Jae-won eventually faced criticism for not being considerate of the NC club and fans, and after grabbing the microphone the next day, he bowed his head again, saying, “I apologize to those who may have been uncomfortable with his comments and to the NC club.”
However, before even a month had passed, this time, he was embroiled in controversy for remarks related to the ball that fit the body. In the end, Oh Jae-won put down the commentator’s microphone himself. Regarding the qualities that a commentator should have in May, Oh Jae-won said, “The importance of words, the importance of analysis, and the importance of details. Regarding the criticism, there were many insane people who said, ‘That level of criticism is natural.’ I wanted to relieve the unfair players’ feelings. As a commentator, I wanted to convey the player’s feelings, there was only one thing. The LG Twins, who were enemies I never imagined that I would be praised by fans. When I was a player, I was an enemy that I had to beat no matter which team I met as a member of Doosan. He emphasized that now, as a commentator, he is solely on the side of the viewer.
The following is the full text of Oh Jae-won’s statement on June 26I thought it would be a burden to SPOTV any longer, so I directly requested termination of the contract and it was decided. Thank you so far. hmm. Now I feel like I’ve come to a situation where I can talk about all the behind-the-scenes things. For me, everything is restarting now.
To all the non-or made-up or made-up for views, please wait a little bit. For those of you who have sent malicious comments via DM for years or months, please wait a little longer.
Thank you to everyone who listened to the baseball commentary that was lacking in the meantime.
