The KBO held a punishment committee today (7 July) and handed down 80 hours of community service and a fine of 5 million won to Kim Kwang-hyun, who visited a bar twice during the WBC tournament in March, and 40 hours of community service and a fine of 3 million won to Lee Yong-chan and Jung Chul-won, who visited the bar once.

The KBO determined the facts through an investigation into the incident report, an in-person investigation, and an investigation into the manager of the bar in question, and determined that the three players’ drinking controversy had damaged the dignity of the national team, according to Article 151 of the KBO’s rules.

The three players were dropped from their respective teams’ first-team rosters last week, but avoided suspensions, allowing SSG Kim Kwang-hyun to return to the first team as early as the 11th of this month, and NC Lee Yong-chan and Doosan’s Jeong Chul-won on the 12th.

The three players, who appeared before the tribunal with determined faces, bowed their heads once again after their 50-minute testimony and said they would humbly accept the punishment.

[Kim Kwang-hyun/SSG Landers pitcher: I told the truth and told everything without lying, and I will accept the results of the punishment committee. I’m sorry for causing trouble once again].

The KBO said it had investigated the entire national team and found that none of the players had entered the bar except for the three.

They apologised for the lack of management of the national team and said they would try to prevent a recurrence by refining the rules for the national team in the future.
