Kim Min-jae (26-Naples) has been in the news for his refusal to drink alcohol.
In his first season with Napoli, Kim won a starting spot and became a key player for the team. His dominant defense impressed local fans and sparked a “KIM” craze in Napoli. Thanks to Kim’s performance, Napoli made history by winning their first league title in 33 years.
Recently, he appeared on an entertainment program. Kim appeared on the tvN program “Businessman’s Genius Baeksa,” which aired on March 21. The actor visited a Korean restaurant in Napoli, where he ate Korean food and felt relaxed.메이저사이트
The agent accompanying him ordered makgeolli. However, Kim refused to drink, saying, “I only need water.” He emphasized the importance of taking care of his body, saying, “It’s unfortunate, but it’s the season, and I still have to play.” Kim also expressed his disappointment that rice wine was not available in Naples, saying, “If I had a little more energy, I would drink it,” but ultimately chose water.
Kim’s video became a hot topic after the national baseball team’s drinking scandal. Several members of the South Korean national baseball team competing in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) were caught drinking during the tournament.
A YouTube channel revealed that some of the team’s pitchers had been in and out of bars over the past 30 days, with Kim Kwang-hyun (SSG Rangers), Lee Yong-chan (NC Dinos), and Chung Chul-won (Doosan Bears) among the players.
Criticism of the three players was heightened when they were accused of drinking alcohol while performing below expectations, and they eventually bowed their heads in an official apology one day later. Japan’s Tokyo Sports drew comparisons between the two situations, saying, “Kim Min-jae’s appearance is attracting attention as the Korean national team had a drinking problem during the WBC tournament.”
