The reason Yang Eui-ji (36) rejected the offer from multiple clubs and chose to return to her parents’ home. It was because of the deep longing for the Doosan Bears.
Yang Eui-ji attended the Doosan Bears signing ceremony held at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 11th and conveyed her feelings about returning to her parent’s home after 4 years.
Yang Eui-ji, who was the biggest fish in the FA market, chose to return to Doosan on November 22 last year for up to 15.2 billion won in 4+2 years. For his first four years, he received a contract payment of 4.4 billion won and a total annual salary of 6.6 billion won, and after the end of the 2026 season, a player option of up to 4.2 billion won for two years including incentives was included. Yang Eui-ji surpassed Kim Kwang-hyun (SSG)’s 15.1 billion won (4 years) and broke the record for the highest amount ever in the KBO League.
Yang Eui-ji, who left for NC in December 2018 for 4 years and 12.5 billion won, said goodbye to Doosan. And in the 2020 Korean Series, he unfortunately defeated Doosan and won the championship, putting a dagger in his parents’ home. Yang Eui-ji became a free agent again after 4 years, and as he did 4 years ago, he was actively courted by multiple clubs including Doosan.
Why did he choose Doosan? Yang Eui-ji said, “When I played Doosan in NC, I looked at the Doosan bench a lot. There was always a longing,” he said. “Actually, he cried a lot after winning in 2020, so I thought he wouldn’t be able to return to Doosan, but Doosan fans sent a lot of messages from last year saying that he would like to return. He also told us many stories at the expedition lodge. I think I was able to come back because I gained strength thanks to the fans,” he thanked Doosan fans. 온라인카지노
The persuasion of colleagues who led the past Doosan Dynasty, such as Kim Jae-hwan, Heo Gyeong-min, and Su-bin Su, also played a part. Yang Eui-ji said, “Before signing the FA contract, I talked a lot about my younger siblings wanting to work together. I am so happy that this has become a reality,” he said. “They really wanted me, and they welcomed me after the contract. I feel like I have to work hard even for his younger siblings. I feel good,” he smiled.
With the return of Yang Eui-ji, Doosan fans will be able to sing his cheering song again for the first time in four years. That is for up to 6 years. Yang Eui-ji honestly confessed, “I’ve heard my cheering song on YouTube a few times, but it lingers in my ears.” Many people have come to us since before the opening, so if you call us, we will receive strength and show you how to work hard.”
