SEOUL, Jan. 5 (Korea Bizwire) – Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin tied the knot with local sports announcer Bae Ji-hyun Friday.
The star athlete and the popular TV personality exchanged vows in a private ceremony at Shilla Hotel in Seoul. Kim In-sik, Ryu’s former manager in South Korea with the Hanwha Eagles, was the officiant, and Yoo Jae-suk, one of South Korea’s biggest celebrities, served as the master of ceremonies.
Ryu, 30, had a bounce back season in 2017 after getting limited to just one start over the two previous years due to shoulder and elbow problems. Ryu was 5-9 with a 3.77 ERA in 126 2/3 innings.
Bae, also 30, is a former model who has been hosting nightly baseball highlight shows on cable for several years.
