“I’ll sign it later” What did Lee Jeong-hoo say after leaving the raw fish restaurant when he came back 40 minutes later?

A photo taken together by the owner of a raw fish restaurant and player Lee Jeong-hoo.

The story was told that Lee Jeong-hoo (San Francisco Giants), who is about to advance to the Major League Baseball (MLB) in the U.S., received a request for an autograph at a raw fish restaurant in Seoul, left the store for a while, then came back and signed the autograph.

Since the 28th, posts titled ‘Lee Jeong-hoo’s funny stories’ have been posted on online communities and social networks (SNS).

Mr. A posted a commemorative photo of Lee Jeong-hoo and a man who appeared to be the owner of a raw fish restaurant on his Instagram and told the related story.

Mr. A is said to have been a fan of Lee Jeong-hoo’s former team, Kiwoom Heroes. He said, “I recently visited a raw fish restaurant in Seongsu-dong, Seongdong-gu, Seoul, and found a photo of Lee Jeong-hoo inside the store. The owner of the raw fish restaurant at the time told me about an anecdote about a time when Lee Jeong-hoo visited.”

According to Mr. A, the owner of the raw fish restaurant asked Lee Jeong-hoo, who visited the store with his friends, for an autograph. However, Lee Jeong-hoo said, “I will do it later,” and left.

After 40 minutes, Lee Jeong-hoo returned to the store. He had sent all his friends who were with him by taxi. Lee Jeong-hoo said, “He was not able to sign autographs in front of his friends because they were friends who had quit playing baseball,” and he said that he not only signed autographs but also took pictures with them.

Netizens who heard this story said, “I hope you succeed in the United States,” “You have professionalism,” “I’m touched that there are many players who just ignore you when you ask them for an autograph,” and “It would be a pride to sign an autograph in front of your friends who have quit baseball.” He almost got hurt, but it was thoughtful of him to come and sign it separately.”

Lee Jung-hoo signed a six-year contract with the San Francisco Giants in December last year worth a total of $113 million (about 150.3 billion won). This is considered the highest treatment ever among Korean players who advanced to MLB through posting (private competitive bidding) in the KBO League.

Lee Jung-hoo will leave for the United States on the 1st of next month, undergo personal training, then join the team for spring camp and an exhibition game against the Chicago Cubs on the 25th. His official major league debut is expected to be in the opening four-game series against the San Diego Padres starting on March 29. 토토사이트
