In 2015, Choo Shin-soo’s onion national anthem at the Texas home game,
8 years later, was reunited at the SSG homeroom.

Professional baseball player SSG Choo Shin-soo and singer Yang-pa reunited on the 14th at SSG Landers Field in Incheon after 8 years. On this day, Yangpa sang the national anthem at the SSG-Hanwha match, and Choo Shin-soo listened to Onpa’s national anthem again after Global Life Park (Texas Rangers home stadium) in 2015 at the dugout.

After the event, they took some time to say hello. Choo Shin-soo said, “He still sings well,” and said, “Kirk McCarty heard the national anthem and wondered who was singing it.” In response, Yangpa replied, “I think I’ve become cooler than 8 years ago,” and worried about Choo Shin-soo’s physical condition.

Choo Shin-soo injured his ankle while playing base run against Hanwha on the 12th, but the injury was not serious, so he did not miss out on the entry. Choo Shin-soo laughed, saying, “If it was like before, I would have already run around, but now that I am over 40, my recovery is slower than when I was in my 20s and 30s.”

I also remembered the meeting 8 years ago. Yangpa sang the national anthem and the US national anthem before a major league game at Global Life Park in Arlington, Texas, on June 16, 2015. At the time, it was the ‘Korean Day’ of the Texas club, where Choo Shin-soo was involved, and the Dallas Korean Association invited Yangpa. Yangpa said, “Player Chu prepared a lot.” He is a very good-hearted person.” Choo Shin-soo said, “When I heard the Korean national anthem in the United States, I got goosebumps. He said, “The players were amazed when they saw that Koreans sang the American national anthem well.”

The relationship at that time continued until now, and Yangpa sang the national anthem passionately on this day wearing a uniform with Choo Shin-soo’s number 17 on his back. Yangpa said, “Unfortunately, my birthday is (March) 17th,” and asked, “Is the number related to Choo’s birthday?” Choo Shin-soo said, “I wore it in elementary school, but I just liked the numbers. He was recommended by the director, and he wore number 17 and continued to do well, so he has been wearing it until now.”

Then, the two of them argued with each other, “I’ll buy food next time,” and promised the next meeting after a short meeting.
