Jin Woo-young’s surprise confession “My parents are from LG, I am Elin”…Hwang Young-mook “I can’t sleep thinking about the name”

High school and college students aren’t the only ones breaking through the narrow doors of professional baseball.
Reporter Hanjun Kim meets some of the “microcosms” who have realized their dreams, even if it took them a little longer than others.

Two players in suits stand out from the crowd of high school students.

They are Hwang Young-mook and Jin Woo-young, members of an independent baseball team.

After a nerve-wracking wait, the two players were called out side by side in the fourth round as if they had made a promise.

They kept their faces calm as they were called out, but their hearts were not.
