Korean Royals Fan Will Melt Your World Series Heart
MLB's title tilt is full of magic and mojo, and it hasn't even started yet, but SungWoo Lee may already be the World Series' most popular man. Lee's not a player for the Royals or Giants though. By all appearances, Lee couldn't be happier - or more beloved by Royals fans. While Mr. Lee technically had the vacation days at his disposal but he had just switched jobs about a month ago, it's crunch time at his new employer Shinsegae Duty Free, the Korean retailer, which is in the midst of preparing a bid for a new duty-free operation at Incheon International Airport. As Mr. Lee explained in a phone interview, "At a Korean company, you just don't do things like this." Two Korean TV stations and an American documentary crew are now following his journey, according to the Journal, although Lee himself seems a bit self-conscious about becoming a burden to the team. Lee had been known to many Royals fans online for years. Only one of them will have the heartwarming backstory - or the following - of SungWoo Lee.
