Lee Jun-seok, former representative of the People Power Party, who is well-known as a Samsung Lions fan

left a message congratulating the LG Twins on their combined championship through his SNS.

LG won 6-2 in Game 5 of the Korean Series against KT held at Jamsil Stadium on the 13th. Starter Casey Kelly pitched well, allowing 5 hits, 3 walks, 3 strikeouts, and 1 run in 5 innings. 토토사이트

Following Kelly, Yoo Young-chan, Ham Deok-ju, and Ko Woo-seok took the mound one after another to preserve the team’s victory.

Among the batters, Park Hae-min (2 hits in 3 at-bats, 2 RBI, 2 runs), Kim Hyun-soo (1 hit in 4 at-bats, 3 RBIs), and Moon Seong-ju (3 hits in 3 at-bats, 1 RBI, 1 run) stood out. 

As a result, LG went on a 4-game winning streak after losing the first game

reaching the top of the Korean Series for the first time in 29 years since 1994 with 4 wins and 1 loss.

Oh Ji-hwan of LG, who had a Korean Series batting average of .316 (6 hits in 19 at-bats), 3 home runs, 8 RBIs, and 6 runs, was selected as the Korean Series MVP by receiving 80 out of 93 votes from the press.

Former CEO Lee Jun-seok sent a congratulatory message on his SNS on the 13th, saying, “I am a Samsung Lions fan

but the LG players were really great this season, and I congratulate and salute the fans wearing glossy jumpers who overcame the 29-year wait.”

Meanwhile, LG, which won the regular season and Korean Series combined for the first time since 1994

is expected to receive a winning bonus of about 5 billion won, including the winning dividend and LG Group’s bonus.

According to KBO, this year’s postseason earned about 9.7 billion won in admission revenue from 14 games from the wild card game to Game 5 of the Korean Series. 

Approximately 5.53 billion won, excluding 43% used for competition expenses, will be paid out as post-season dividends.

According to KBO regulations, 20% of the postseason dividend is awarded to the regular season winning team. 

The remaining dividends are distributed differentially according to rankings 1 to 5.

Excluding 20%, the Korean Series winning team receives 50%, the runner-up team receives 24%, the playoff losing team receives 14%, the semi-playoff losing team receives 9%, and the wild card game losing team receives 3%. 

If the regular season winning team wins the Korean Series, they will receive 60% of the total dividend.

LG will receive approximately 3.32 billion won from the KBO, including dividends from the regular season championship and the Korean Series championship. 

It is clear that LG, which has fulfilled its long-cherished wish of winning the Korean Series for the first time in 29 years, will receive a bonus from its parent company, LG Group.

However, there are limits to the bonuses given by the parent company. KBO and 10 clubs decided to place an upper limit on performance-based bonuses (merit system). 

Accordingly, the winning team’s parent company can only give a bonus up to 50% of the total dividend amount received by the baseball team.

If LG receives 3.32 billion won in winning dividends, it can receive an additional bonus of 1.66 billion won, or 50% of the dividend, from LG Group. 

In total, it is 4.88 billion won.
