Technical support issues
Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres), an infielder playing in the American Major League Baseball (MLB), filed a police complaint against Mr. A, a junior baseball player with whom he played in Korea.
According to the police on the 7th, Ha-seong Kim submitted a complaint against Mr. A to the Gangnam Police Station in Seoul last month on charges of blackmail and attempted extortion. An investigation into the complainant was conducted the day before, and the remaining investigation will be conducted according to procedures.
On the same day, Ha-seong Kim's agency, Summit Management, also released an official statement saying, "As reported, Ha-seong Kim has been subjected to continuous blackmail and threats by a junior player, so he submitted a complaint. As of yesterday, he attended the police station and completed the investigation into the complainant."
“We ask for your understanding that it is difficult to provide detailed information as the case is currently under investigation, and we will provide a detailed position as the investigation progresses. In addition, please refrain from reporting on matters for which the facts have not been confirmed. “I respectfully ask you to give it to me,” he explained.
Ha-seong Kim is known to have claimed that after getting into a physical fight with Mr. A while drinking at a bar in Gangnam, Seoul two years ago, he was asked to pay a settlement by Mr. A. Kim Ha-seong's claim is that even after Mr. A received a large settlement, he continued to demand money and valuables. It is reported that Mr. A is currently at the end of his active duty career.
Kim Ha-seong, who joined the Nexen (now Kiwoom) Heroes with the 29th pick in the 2nd 3rd round in 2014, played in the KBO League for 7 years until 2020, and recorded a total of 891 games, 3,195 at-bats, 940 hits, a batting average of 0.294, 133 home runs, and 575 RBI. In particular, he has hit double-digit home runs for six consecutive years since 2015, and hit 30 home runs for the first time in his debut in 2020. He also made a name for himself by competing in the Premier 12 hosted by the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) in 2019.
