“I’m really looking forward to it. I think it’s really good. I think it’s good because I feel like I have good energy. If I want to play with a good coach for longer, the players have to do well, so I’m training with that sense of purpose. I’ll focus on my team’s performance rather than my individual performance.”

One-club man, who could not have imagined leaving Lotte Giants, was rewarded with his dedication with the FA No. 1 contract in the last stove league transfer market. Jeon Joon-woo, who refused to offer a better outside proposal, will remain a “one-club man” after playing for Lotte Giants for 20 years.

After signing a four-year contract worth 4.7 billion won (guaranteed 4 billion won, incentives 700 million won), Jeon joined Lotte in 2008 and played for 16 seasons, he will be able to play for Lotte for 20 full years as a player. Furthermore, he envisions the return of Lotte, which is his long-cherished dream, to the autumn baseball league and the championship with new manager Kim Tae-hyung.

Jun-woo Jeon is highly anticipated and happy about the ambitious coach and the current team’s goal of winning the title again. For this reason, he served as the captain at once, even in his late 30s. He stressed the importance of having one mind for Lotte’s single goal in the 2024 season at the Deedo Sports Complex spring camp in Guam.
The following is a question and answer with Lotte’s one-club man, Jeon Jun-woo.

I think I lost a lot of weight
(Laughing) At the end of the season, I’m not that lost weight, but I think I’m always like this at the start of this time.

How do you feel about spring camp with new people

(Coach) I came across it a lot through articles during the offseason. When I first met him today and practiced, he said from the beginning, “Let’s play like that, thinking we’re beating the opponent,” and “We have to make a strong decision,” but I thought a lot that if the players made up their minds, “wouldn’t it be a different picture from other years?”

In a way, I think “the players should do better” rather than “there’s a good coach, so of course they’ll do well.” To play with a good coach for a long time, the players have to do better and perform well, so I think I trained like that from the first day with that sense of purpose.

What did you talk about at the team meeting

That’s what I just said. The coach also said that, and I thought it would be achieved only when we were thinking the same thing, so I thought about it once and said let’s do it this season.

I’m the captain, and I wonder if Kim Tae-hyung suggested it first

After signing a contract, I met the director, and I hesitated a little because I thought, “Who should do it?” So I said, “You do it.” So I said, “Yes, I’ll do it.” That’s why it became so natural.

Did you prepare yourself to be the captain

Middle-class players responded so cheerfully because the coach came and told me to do it, rather than putting pressure on them because they had only been in the team for a year and they thought it was a period of adaptation.

In an interview on the departure broadcast, head coach Kim Tae-hyung said, “I don’t know Lotte well,” and said, “Ask Jeon Jun-woo.” (laughs)
I saw the interview yesterday. I didn’t have it because I already went in. Honestly, he’s such a good director, so I’m really looking forward to it and I think I’ll have to do it well.

Many say that after manager Kim Tae-hyung’s arrival, players’ eyes and mood have changed. How do you feel as a captain
