And the winner is...

The KBO has named it's award winners for the 2008 season.

"They told me it was chocolate."

The SK Wyverns lefty ace, Kim Kwang-hyeon came in first in the voting with 51 votes. Doosan Bears left fielder and batting champ, Kim Hyeon-su finished 2nd with 27 votes. Kim Hyeon-su's 1-21 performance in the Korean Series probably effected his standing with the voters. Kim Kwang-hyeon finished the year 16-4 with a 2.39 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. He struck out 150 and walked 65 in 162 innings pitched.

"If I could rewrite the alphabet, I would put 유 and 아이 together."

Samsung Lions outfielder, Choi Hyeong-woo won the Rookie of the Year award in a landslide. The 25-year old Choi earned 71 of the possible 94 votes. Choi finished his first full season with a .276/.364/.487 line. He managed 19 homers, 71 RBI and 68 runs scored in 384 AB's.
