"I'm going overseas next year!" - The Returning Kim Tae-kyun
You can say that this baseball player is the 4th best hitter in the country. Kim Tae-kyun, 4th batter in the Hanhwa Eagles lineup, has hit a home run in each of his last 4 games after his return from injury. But what he is saying now is a blow of equal proportions. Kim is talking about playing abroad as he is scheduled to gain free agency status this year.
