Before the first game of the three-game series on the 26th, he said, “I’m more excited this time than when I came to Daegu for the March exhibition game. It’s our first away game in Daegu this season, so it’s double the excitement,” he said. “I had a strange feeling during the Samsung home game (April 28-30), but this time it’s even worse because it’s an away game. It was like that when I came out of the toll gate, and I felt strange in many parts.”
With runners on second and third in the fifth inning, tied 1-1, Kim lined a single up the middle off Samsung starter Yang Chang-seop. KT went on to defeat Samsung 4-1 thanks to Kim’s game-winning hit.

“I’m always focused on my game, but I feel like I got a lot of luck yesterday and today at Lapak. Even though I didn’t hit the ball well, I’m glad that the result was good,” he said humbly.
“After yesterday, I spent time with my family after a long time. I don’t come to Daegu often after the transfer, so I was happy to see them at the ballpark for the first time in a long time,” he smiled.
He said, “It will be a strange feeling every time I look for Rafa, who I have always loved. There were a lot of KT fans here today, and I’m glad I got the chance to give back a little bit in front of those who support me,” he smiled.
