Technical support issues
Growing up after suffering in the POs last year
3-hit blast, including a two-run shot in the 6th inning of the KS 4th game
Moon Bo-kyung's two-run shot
Game 4 of the 2023 KBO Korean Series between the LG Twins and the KT Wiz at Katie Wiz Park in Suwon, Gyeonggi-do, on Nov. 11. LG's Moon Bo-kyung, first baseman, celebrates as he heads to the dugout after hitting a two-run home run in the sixth inning.
Moon Bo-kyung (23), the starting third baseman for the LG Twins in the Korean Baseball Organization, is an iconic player.
He is a testament to LG's rebuilding success.
LG has traditionally been short on third basemen. The team has repeatedly failed to develop third basemen and has tried to fill the weakness in various ways, including trades, free agency, and signing foreign players.
In the midst of this, Moon Bo-kyung, who joined the team in 2019, solved the team's problem.
He was touted as a key player in the team's rebuild in 2021, earning plenty of playing time and solving the "hot corner" problem by hitting triple digits for the first time in his career last year.
However, LG's belly button Moon Bo-kyung was not immune to growing pains.
In particular, his inexperience showed in the fall baseball last year.
He was unable to handle the pressure in the second round of the playoffs (PO) against the Kiwoom Heroes.
Trailing 6-7 in the ninth inning, he hit a walk-off home run to end the game.
It wasn't the only one. In the eighth inning of Game 3 of the POs, down 4-6, with runners on first and second, he tried to bunt and failed.
The ball bounced toward the pitcher, and the opposing closer Kim Jae-woong caught it and threw to second for a double play.
For the second game in a row, Moon's worst play in a game-tying situation scattered ashes over LG's chances of advancing to the Korean Series (KS).
At the time, Moon blamed herself. After Game 3 of the PO, she was seen in tears in the dugout.
Some were worried that the Fall 2022 stage would be traumatic for Moon.
