Ha-seong Kim is also a disciple of director Yeom. Since his debut in 2014, coach Yeom has been the closest mentor to Kim Ha-seong since the KBO League days. At the time, director Yeom was holding the baton of Kiwoom’s predecessor Nexen.
Coach Yeom served as the coach of SSG’s predecessor SK, and after laying down his baton, he moved to the United States and received coaching training in San Diego. At this time, he met Kim Ha-seong again.
It is a relationship between a master and a disciple. For director Yeom, Ha-seong Kim has no choice but to be special. Manager Yeom’s advice also followed Ha-seong Kim’s position as a top infielder in the major leagues.
Manager Yeom said, “If you are recognized for your defensive power, you can last 10 years in the first team in any league,” and “Ha-seong Kim was guaranteed 10 years in the major leagues. It is because he was recognized for his defensive ability,” he said happily.
After stepping on the big league stage, Kim Ha-seong showed his ability to serve as shortstop, second baseman, and third baseman. Last year, he was also among the three final candidates for the National League shortstop Gold Glove, taking responsibility for the shortstop vacancy that Fernando Tatis Jr. left.

For him, getting paid as a free agent is important, but playing for 10 years in the major leagues is more important. In order to do that, the first thing to do is to become defensive and show the main force.”
As his teacher wished, Kim Ha-seong is recognized for his defensive ability in the major leagues and is receiving a lot of attention for his energetic base run play..
