How does Choo Shin-soo (SSG) turn the anger of his fans?

Controversy over remarks about the national team that Choo Shin-soo made on the Korean radio program ‘DKNET’ in Dallas, Texas on the 21st does not subside easily. Remarks regarding Ahn Woo-jin (Kiwoom), the claim that more young players should have been selected, and the criticism that seniors cannot play the role of seniors all fail to gain sympathy.

Choo Shin-soo is silent after the controversy arose. He honestly expressed his opinion on the national team, but it seems that he only confirmed the reality that there is a big gap with the fans’ thoughts. The problem is that not only fans but also some industry insiders are showing signs of discomfort. 스포츠토토

Choo Shin-soo has had a favorable image in Korea. He’s an actual good baseball senior. He has done a lot of good things for his juniors and has shown respectable moves. However, he misunderstood something about the national team and failed to understand the national sentiment.

If so, how will Choo Shin-soo turn the angry public sentiment around? It seems that he will have to go through the process of explaining or at least expressing regret for the words he said in the program, either personally or through the SSG public relations team. Because the repercussions of his remarks are too great.

Sports fans no longer want to cover negative issues off the field, social norms, moral and legal issues. The moment it was clearly revealed that something was wrong, the attitude of ‘I will repay you with baseball’ is the worst. For Choo Shin-soo, if he thinks fans are misinterpreting it, it’s better to actively correct it.

In particular, it is most important to clearly explain the absence of the 2013 WBC, which was not mentioned at all. According to KBO’s press release on December 27, 2012, Choo Shin-soo refused to join the national team because of adaptation to a new team (Cincinnati Reds). Unlike the 2017 WBC, it was not an injury issue. If adapting to a new team was more important than the weight of the Taegeuk mark, explain the background to the fans.

Choo Shin-soo is a good baseball senior. In the meantime he did a lot of good things for SSG and Korean baseball. He also made a lot of donations, and even gave a huge gift to the players of the 2nd team in consideration of their spending. Another thing to point out at this point is that this incident should not disparage the good things of Choo Shin-soo. It’s just a situation where there is nothing to say even if you are criticized for remarks related to the national team in the broadcast. Choo Shin-soo can apologize or explain to the fans about this.
