LG is celebrating its first Korean Series title in 29 years on Sunday.
LG will hold a celebration at LG Science Park in Magok-dong, Gangseo-gu, Seoul, this afternoon, with Group Chairman Koo Kwang-mo, the LG team, and the Executive Twins Club in attendance.
The legacy of the late President Koo Bon-moo will also be unveiled. First of all, the Awamori lid, which has been stored in the feed room of the LG Champions Park accommodation in Icheon, Gyeonggi Province, will be opened for the first time in 28 years. The “legendary liquor” began when Koo Bon-moo, who visited the Okinawa spring camp in the spring of 1994, shared it at a team dinner and suggested, “If we win the championship this season, let’s toast with this liquor at the victory party. LG emptied the bottle after winning its second championship that fall and considered it a pleasant jinx, so the following year, the team returned home from training camp with a bottle. However, it hadn’t been opened for 28 years until last year. He bought three barrels of soju in 1995, but they gradually evaporated and were combined into a single jar a few years ago. About three-quarters of the original shochu remains, and LG flew to Okinawa ahead of the Korean series to purchase two new barrels to fill the gap.굿모닝토토
The question was whether the remaining awamori was actually drinkable, but according to LG, experts recently concluded that it was harmless to humans. Executives, including Chairman Koo Kwang-mo, are expected to taste it for themselves.
The Rolex watch that Oh has expressed his intention to return will also make an appearance at the celebration. It was purchased by Chairman Koo in 1998 during a business trip overseas as a gift for the Korean Series MVP. “Considering its symbolism, I would like to return it to Chairman Koo Kwang-mo and display it in the history room where many people can see it,” said Oh Ji-hwan in an interview.
LG accepted his wishes and plans to hold a ‘return ceremony’ immediately after the delivery.
