Kim Ha-sung, who came back to Korea after the best year, was engulfed in unsavoury things before the new season. Kim Ha-sung played for Kiwoom together and had a drinking party with A, who retired from active duty, before entering the Major League in 2021. However, a dispute broke out with Kim Ha-sung and A, which led to a physical fight. Later, Kim Ha-sung paid A a settlement of hundreds of millions of won to settle the situation. It is known that he paid a total of 400 million won.

Since then, the relationship between Kim Ha-sung and A seemed to have recovered well. In the first year of Kim Ha-sung’s advance to the Major League, A went to the U.S. together as Kim Ha-sung’s training assistant. We spent the 2021 season together.

However, even after receiving the settlement money, A continued to demand money and goods, and Kim Ha-sung, who could not stand it, sued A for blackmail and intimidation. Kim Ha-sung attended the police station on the 6th and completed the investigation of the complainant, and the police have begun an investigation based on this.

Player A appeared on a YouTube channel on the 7th and claimed that Kim Ha-sung habitually assaulted him. Contrary to Kim Ha-sung’s claim that the agreement was completed, he said that he should receive additional settlement money because he was constantly assaulted even after the agreement.

Amid the conflicting arguments between the two sides, the specific facts are expected to be revealed only when a police investigation is conducted. Kim Ha-sung, who had the best season, was embroiled in an unsavory controversy.
