The late Choi Dong-won was not simply a good baseball player.” The
Choi Dong-won Memorial Association made it clear. The Choi Dong-won Memorial Business Association has decided to revoke the Choi Dong-won Award from Seo Jun-won (former Lotte Giants), who was handed over to trial on charges of sexual offenses against minors스포츠토토. In addition, he expressed a strong will to erase from the list of award recipients regardless of the high school Choi Dong-won Award and Choi Dong-won Award for players who committed crimes in the future.
It was made clear that the Choi Dong-won Award is not simply an award given to a player who is good at baseball. It is to honor the noble spirit of the deceased who fought for the rights and interests of baseball players.
Seo Jun-won is also the first-choice player of the Lotte Giants, and is also Choi Dong-won’s junior at his alma mater. Therefore, he was the most suitable player for the Choi Dong-won award. That is why the shock of this incident was exceptionally great.
On the 27th, the Choi Dong-won Memorial Project Association said, “The board of directors and all members of the business association were shocked by the judgment that Seo Jun-won’s actions were so serious and anti-humanitarian.” We have decided to revoke the Choi Dong-won Award.”
Seo Jun-won received the 1st High School Choi Dong-won Award in 2018 while attending Gyeongnam High School. At that time, the Choi Dong-Won Commemorative Association awarded a scholarship of 3 million Won to Seo Jun-Won, the first high school Choi Dong-Won Award winner.
Secretary General Kang Jin-soo said, “In the future, winners who have committed social immoral crimes and serious crimes will go through discussions with the board of directors regarding the ‘deprivation of awards’ regardless of the high school Choi Dong-won Award and Choi Dong-won Award.” We will announce the ‘revocation of the award’ without embarrassment.”
In August of last year, Seo Jun-won was indicted without detention on charges of producing sexual exploitation of children and adolescents by having a minor victim whom he met online take a picture of his body and send it to him. On the 23rd, the Lotte club released Seo Jun-won as soon as it was confirmed that the charges against him were sexual offenses against minors.
