An onslaught of ultimates, rebuffed by a lineup featuring some of South Korea’s best.
The KBO League’s Samsung Lions and Hanwha Eagles left their benches twice and fought in Sunday’s game. A total of six players and coaches have been punished for their roles.
It’s honestly surprising that this doesn’t happen more often with remote interviews from subjects’ houses.
On Thursday night, South Korean president Park Geun-Hye was officially ousted from her office after a special Constitutional Court decision upheld her impeachment. For the majority of Koreans, it’s the end of a grueling three-month trial and a longer national scandal. But during the biggest crisis in South Korea’s…
I know I’m warmer than most on the World Baseball Classic, but I think it can only be a good thing that there’s actual, competitive baseball being played right now, after a long cold winter. (My enthusiasm will wane by May, when I’ll be wishing they could just skip ahead to September already. But let’s enjoy this!)
Today, the Korean Esports Association announced that the StarCraft ProLeague was ending. The league began in 2003, but this year, its last, brings a fourteen-year run to a close.
They—dumb people—say that 2-0 is the most dangerous lead in soccer. This is wrong, and it is even wronger when the team leading 2-0 is styling on the other. In the first half of their World Cup round-of-16 match, right now, France are styling on South Korea.
Here’s everything you need to know about Group E.
In the year 2017 or 2019, we might be talking about South Korea as a darkhorse candidate to win the World Cup. But since it is 2015, this tournament will serve as a kind of measuring stick to size up the Taegeuk Ladies’s progress. South Korea have always existed in the awkward middle ground of Asian football, not a…
The 2002 World Cup hosted jointly by South Korea and Japan was already infamous for its horrendous refereeing, most notably two knockout stage match-ups involving South Korea. Today, one Italian paper has linked what was widely believed to be match-fixing behavior back then to this current FIFA scandal.
Thousands of South Koreans tune in daily to Muk-bang (eating broadcasts): Online live-stream channels where people eats large amounts of food on camera. Those people, called Broadcast Jockeys (BJ's), became real celebrities that could earn up to $9000 a month just by sharing meals with their lonely audience.
The King's Cup is a weird friendly tournament among a bunch of random teams that takes place annually—except for the years when it does not take place at all—in Thailand. Uzbekistan and South Korea's under-22 teams met on the first day of this year's competition, and the game ended in a 1-0 win for South Korea. But…
Yesterday, there was competition in Seoul. People competed to see who could space-out the most. Wait, what?
South Korea beat Chicago's Jackie Robinson West in the Little League World Series Championship 8-4 today. It featured a pretty solid bat flip from Dong Wan Sin (above) and also a really cool bit of sportsmanship after the game (below).
Bat flips for everyone! These are two little leaguers for the South Korea team bat-flipping their asses off against Puerto Rico today. The first one is a little more about the hands than bat flip, but the second one is textbook. They both happen to be on outs, but that doesn't matter, one of the all-time great bat…
Sung Woo Lee was born and raised in South Korea, and yet the poor guy somehow got roped into cheering for the Kansas City Royals. He's followed the team for something like two decades now but he has never visited the United States. This week, thanks to a group of nice fans, Sung Woo is getting an ambassador's welcome…
Humans fans? Ha, whatever! Nobody needs them anymore, especially when there are robots fans. Just ask South Korea.
In case you were wondering what former MLB player/birther Luke Scott was up to these days, there is word from East Asia: He's getting kicked off his South Korea baseball team for yelling at the manager.
Two number 18 from South Korea and Belgium vie for the ball and a spot in the final sixteen. Belgium advanced out of the group with Algeria while South Korea failed to move on.
Now that we've made it out of the Group of Death, we can sit back and watch the final matches of Group H, which will determine who the USMNT and Germany face in the World Cup's next round. C'mon South Korea and Algeria!
