The team that attracted the most attention in the 2024 Rookie Draft was Kiwoom Heroes.

Kiwoom nominated Seoul High School right-hander Jeon Joon-pyo as the eighth pick in the first round of the LG Twins received through the Choi Won-tae trade. He then picked Jangchung High School pitcher Kim Yoon-ha as his original ninth pick in the first round. Kim Yoon-ha is the nephew of “Korean Express” Park Chan-ho and drew attention even before the draft. Kiwoom manager Hong Won-ki is Park Chan-ho and Gong Joo-joo and Dong-chang.
In addition, Kiwoom selected pitcher Son Hyun-ki (Jeon High School), pitcher Kim Yeon-ju (Sejeong High School), infielder Ko Young-woo (Sungkyunkwan University), pitcher Kim Joo-hoon (Dongwon High School), infielder Song Jin-hyung (Gwangju Jeil High School), catcher Kim Ji-sung (Chungam High School), pitcher Park Bum-jun (Daejeon High School), and infielder Shim Hwi-jae. Ko Young-woo, who was selected in the fourth round, is currently appearing on the baseball entertainment program “The Strongest Baseball.”
In addition, infielder Lee Jae-sang (Seongnam High School) was nominated for the 16th pick in the second round obtained through a trade with the KIA Tigers, and pitcher Lee Woo-hyun (Bibong High School) was selected using the 24th pick in the second round obtained in a trade with the Samsung Lions. Of the 14 designated players, eight are pitchers. In addition, there are four infielders, one catcher, and one outfielder.
The following are the thoughts of the major designated players,
△Jeon Jun-pyo (Seoul High School) No. 8 of the first round
I’m honored to be selected by a good club called Kiwoom Heroes. I will try to adapt as soon as possible and show a good performance in the first division. As Seoul High School has a system similar to that of a professional, I will adapt quickly and show good performance in the first division. I’m so thankful to everyone who has supported me so far. I will repay you for your support with my skills.
△ Round 1, No. 9 Kim Yoon-ha (Jang Chung-go)
I was really worried if I could be picked in the first round, but thank you for the nomination from Kiwoom Heroes. I am most grateful to my parents for leading me this far. I think I was able to come this far because the coach and coach who have coached me so far have strengthened me from the basics. Thank you very much. I will always be a player who works harder to meet the expectations that the fans send me. I didn’t get a call from my uncle (Park Chan-ho) before the draft. Since my uncle was so busy, I didn’t see him often, but he used to give me good advice whenever I had a chance. In line with the name tag of the best pitcher in Korea, he tries to act more carefully and work harder.
△ Round 2 No. 16 Lee Jae-sang (Seongnam High School)
I was surprised that my name was called earlier than I thought. I am grateful to Kiwoom Heroes and officials for choosing me. I think strong shoulders and power are the advantages. I want to further refine my strengths and join the team next year and show good performance from next year. I’ll do my best to play everything.
△Round 2 No. 19 Son Hyun-ki (Jeonju)
It’s an honor to be nominated by Kiwoom Heroes. I really like Gocheok Sky Dome and wanted to take the mound, but I’m happy to be nominated by a club that uses Gocheok Sky Dome as its home stadium. I think my strength is that I have a ball that is difficult for batters to hit due to my good fast ball and breaking ball skills. In the future, I will do my best to make the name Son Hyun-ki come to mind first when I think of Kiwoom left-handed pitcher.
△ Round 3 No. 24 Lee Woo Hyun (Bibong High School)
It’s an honor to be named to a good club called Kiwoom Heroes. Now that he has become a professional player, he tries to be more careful about his behavior. My strength is that I can throw many innings as a starting pitcher. I will try to hear that he is a really hard player at the baseball stadium, and that our team won when Lee Woo-hyun comes up.
△Round 3 No. 29 Kim Yeon-joo (Se-Ads)
I’m surprised and grateful to be nominated in a higher ranking than I thought. I will try to be a player who meets expectations. (Lee)Myeongjong congratulated me a lot. It’s good to play for the same club as my close brother, but it’s a little burdensome to be a rival again. As I have good control, I will try harder so that I can greet you quickly in the first division. I will be the person who suits the word “small pepper is spicy.”
