22-year-old transfer student from LG

Kiwoom sent an ace-level pitcher and rookie-level players came. 

Without realizing it

I feel sorry for the fans.”

This was a word left by Lee Joo-hyeong (22)

who left the LG Twins through a trade with Choi Won-tae and came to Kiwoom Heroes

right after the trade.

At the time

as Lee Joo-hyung said


who was thirsty for victory

erased its weakness by bringing in Choi Won-tae 먹튀검증사이트 to reinforce the domestic starting lineup

which was the last puzzle. 

On the other hand

Kiwoom received the 1st round nomination for the 2024 rookie draft

including Lee Joo-hyung and rookie pitcher Kim Dong-gyu. 

Many people said that LG

which dreams of winning this season

is an income right now. Kiwoom was predominantly evaluated as a trade that saw the future rather than the present.


Lee Joo-hyung is currently the central hitter of Kiwoom. 

Arrived much faster than expected.

Genius hitter’ Lee Jung-hoo is out due to injury and veterans Lee Won-seok, Lee Ji-young and Lee Yong-kyu are missing.

Kim Hye-seong and Ronnie Dawson are playing a big role in the center lineup.

This season

Lee Joo-hyung has appeared in 44 games and is active with a batting average of 0.322, 38 hits

4 homers, 22 RBIs and 20 points.

 Not only did he hit his first home run in his debut, but he also continued his streak of hits in six recent games.

 If asked to pick the hottest player in Kiwoom’s lineup right now

most would say Lee Joo-hyung.

He has a batting average of 0.337, 32 hits, 4 homers

19 RBIs and 17 runs in the month of August alone. 

He hit 4 home runs in August alone.

He hit a come-from-behind final three run against the Gocheok Lotte Giants on the 18th and a three-run home run against the Daegu Samsung Lions on the 27th. 

His slugging power

as well as his speed

are compliant

and he can cover all three positions in the outfield defense. 

As he is from an infielder

he can also see the infielder’s rain

but now

in order to maximize his offensive ability

after meeting with Kiwoom Hong Won-ki, he organized it by watching the outfield defense.

Even before coming to his Kiwoom

he was evaluated as a top-notch prospect. 

After graduating from Gyeongnam High School

Lee Joo-hyung

who joined LG in the 13th rank of the 2nd round of 20, enlisted in the military to quickly resolve military service after the end of the 2021 season. 

He returned after being discharged

but there was no place for him to play in the deep LG.

The Futures stage was narrow for him.

From his 2020 debut season

he showed a high batting average of over 0.350

and he dominated the Futures stage with a batting average of 0.335

104 hits

11 home runs

63 RBIs and 76 points in 97 Futures career games.

 I thought that if there was a spot in the first team

there would be an opportunity to show his ability

but that opportunity came from Kiwoom.

Kiwoom coach Hong Won-gi said of Lee Joo-hyung

He is in the bottom batting order in the sense of attacking with a comfortable mind

but he is a player who is showing good batting average as well as batting quality.

Kiwoom sent an ace pitcher and new players came. 

Lee Joo-hyung said

I feel sorry for the fans without even realizing it.


he has been reborn as a player that not only Kiwoom benches but also Kiwoom fans can trust and watch.

Although the team is at the bottom

it is true that his performance is not in the spotlight.


I look forward to next season and the season after that more than this season.

Let’s look forward to his performance to keep Kiwoom’s lineup strong in the future.
