Together with entertainers Choi Soo Jong, Kim Soo Ro, MC Mong and movie director Kang Je Gyoo, JDG loudly cheers for Korea Dream Team clinching a berth in the semifinals of the inaugural WBC.

He will return to Korea after games of Final Four are wrapped up.” (Note: Korea lost to Japan in a semifinal game held on 3/18, Saturday night)
