Sung Woo Lee, who's been a fan of the Royals since the '90s, traveled from South Korea to Kansas City in August for his first game. Since Kansas City made it to the World Series, Sung Woo got time off from work to see Game One against the Giants. Sung Woo's back, baby!


The last time Sung Woo visited, he arrived on Aug. 5. The Royals won seven straight, including a three-game sweep of the Giants. We're not saying Sung Woo has superpowers, but we're also not saying he doesn't.
