UNITED STATES – A pair of South Korean sensations, Cleveland Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo and the girl group Wonder Girls, met recently at Progressive Field. The opening act for the Jonas Brothers worldwide tour dropped by to see the young slugger.
“I was nervous,” Choo said afterwards. “Playing the game will be easier.”
Choo, who receiveda hat, a T-shirt and a CD from the the Korean singers of the smash hit single, “Nobody,” also got some inspirational advice.
“They told me, ‘Don’t give up, show everybody we are Korean,’” said the up-and-coming outfielder. “When I play good, everybody sees and says, ‘Where is he from?’ And when they sing, everybody sees and says, ‘Where are they from?’ We’re from Korea.”
