"I didn't have to apologize, but thank you for calling."
KT Wiz Cuevas and Hanwha Eagles Park Sang-won have confessed their feelings of sadness.

As the controversy continued, manager Lee Kang-chul apologized in a pre-game interview with the LG Twins at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on the 22nd, saying, "I'm sorry if the other team was hurt." "After the game, we had a conversation with our senior coaches and made up. At the time, I thought that was the end of the situation," he added.
