“I am preparing for the regular season rather than WBC.”

Right-hander Pil Seung-jo Joo Kwon of KT Wiz was selected for the Chinese national team in the 2023 WBC as well as in 2017. Joo-kwon has Korean nationality, but can participate in the WBC by selecting the national team according to the nationality and place of birth of himself and his parents. Joo Kwon was born in Jilin Province, China, to a Chinese스포츠토토 father and a Korean mother, so he can play for the Chinese national team.

Even in the 2017 tournament, he joined the Chinese national team just by competing in the WBC, and this is the same reason. To experience a bigger stage. I declined the first offer, but the second time I accepted it after much consideration.

Ju Kwon, who will become a free agent after this season, wanted to focus only on the season. Joo Kwon said calmly, “The Chinese side persuaded me not to hold an exhibition match at that time.

However, he does not prepare for the WBC. He said, “I don’t have to do anything for the WBC because my body is built early,” he said.

He lived in China when he was young, but he said he wasn’t fluent in Mandarin. He waved his hand, saying, “When he was young, he learned Chinese but came to Korea and is not fluent.”

But I haven’t even touched a WBC official ball yet. Pitchers on the Korean national team have already received the WBC official ball and are only pitching in the bullpen with that ball. It is said that the Chinese national team did not give an official ball.

Joo Kwon said, “I did touch the official ball that (the late) Young-pyo or (So) Hyeong-jun had,” and “it was still slippery without stitches, just like I touched it during the 2017 competition.”

When Joo Kwon-eun was asked about the official ball, he said, “I don’t like it. I don’t know how to throw it in the major leagues.”

Because it is different from the Korean ball, it seems that it will take time to adapt, but the sovereign was not so impatient. Joo Kwon said, “I will join the Chinese national team in Kagoshima, Japan on the 28th,” and did not care much, saying, “From then on, even if you touch the ball, you will be able to adapt enough until the game.”

China is in Group B with Korea. Joo Kwon decided to participate on the condition that he would not pitch in the game against Korea. He can pitch in games against Japan, Australia and the Czech Republic.

Joo Kwon also expressed his desire to compete with Japan’s Shohei Otani. Joo Kwon said, “I’m curious about how much it is because I’m doing well in the United States,” and said, “I’m going to play a breaking ball because my fastball isn’t that fast.”
