Yuri, Yoona, and Seohyun have previously been chosen to throw the first ball at various baseball games, and it looks like the Hallyu wave might take the girls to another game.. in Japan!
This next stop might be for the Orix Buffaloes– Japan’s professional baseball team. Or so Kondo Kazuki hopes. The teammate of Park Chanho and Lee Seungyeop recently gained attention for his desire to see the girls’ opening pitch firsthand.
On December 25, Japan’s “Daily Sports” reported on Kondo‘s wish: “For the opening game at home next season, I’d love to see female group SNSD or KARA throwing the first ball. Nowadays, there are many Korean versions of SNSD and KARA’s songs coming in. If a Korean girl group made the opening throw, we will be able to achieve good results in the next season.”
Being in the presence of the girls for good morale? I think so!
Kondo just needs to remember- he can tell the girls his wish, but Hyoyeon will say: “We only said to tell us your wish; we never said we would grant them!”
But who knows? Maybe we’ll see either girl group in Kobe or Osaka next baseball season. In the meantime, who do you think looks best in out on the field?
