Lee enjoyed the festivities at the KBO All-Star Game on April 14-15 with Kim, who he calls the “second Lee Jung-hoo. Lee has already mentioned Kim on several occasions. “I’m also a junior with high expectations,” he said in May of last year, before Kim was named to the Lotte team. A day before the announcement of the All-Star Best 12, he said, “It’s special when the best players in the league get together,” and then added, “It would be interesting to see him in a place like that (the All-Star Game),” referring to Kim, who was the top outfielder in fan voting at the time.

Lee Jung-hoo mentioned Kim again while signing autographs at the All-Star Game. “When I first came to the All-Star Game, I was so awkward,” he said, “and I wanted to take care of him because I remembered how I was back then. When asked if he was more attached to his alumni (Huimungo) junior because he was called his successor, he said, “When I went to train at school in the winter, Huimungo coach Oh Tae-geun praised Min-seok a lot, saying, ‘He’s a good player.’ I thought, ‘I’ll do well in the future. I’m excited to play in the All-Star Game with him.”

Kim Min-seok has also benefited from Lee Jung-hoo, both directly and indirectly. As a student, he heard about Lee’s adjustment to the professional stage in his debut season from head coach Oh Tae-geun, and in the off-season, Lee came to his alma mater to train with him and get advice.

Kim Min-seok lived up to his nickname as the “resigned idol” by winning the “Best Performance Award” at the All-Star Game. Before hitting, he choreographed to a solo song by popular girl group member Jenny (titled “Solo”) with the Lotte mascot. His costume also left a strong impression.

Kim Min-seok is establishing himself as a major star in the KBO. Lee Jung-hoo played in the All-Star Game for the last time before heading to the Major League Baseball (MLB). The senior-junior chemistry also shone in this All-Star Game.
