According to this, Ha-seong Kim answered, “A major league baseball player,” to the question, “Which would be cooler, playing in MLB or being with BTS?” However, Ha-seong Kim added, “That’s just my opinion.” This is a statement conscious of BTS fans.
Then, to the question, “If the San Diego club forms a boy band, are you willing to dance and sing? Who else would you like to be a bandmate?”, “Fernando Tatis Jr., Jose Azocar has agility. Jackson Merrill is 20 years old, so It’s the right age,” he said.
Regarding the biggest difference between the major leagues and the KBO, Kim Ha-seong mentioned ‘scale’.
He said, “The size of the stadium is different. Also, the MLB clubhouse and restaurants are all good. Players can only focus on playing baseball.”
At the same time, he said ‘bitterly’, saying, “KBO is also working hard. But there is still a lot of work to do.”
When asked if he had any intention of wanting to be on the list of ‘The Most Influential Person Under 40’ by Forbes, Ha-seong Kim shook his head, “Forbes? There’s no way I can do that. There are many rich people in Korea.”
In addition, Kim Ha-seong expressed difficulties in learning English, and said that Tatis Jr. is the player who will adapt best to the KBO league.
