Following in her sister’s footsteps, f(x)’s Krystal will step on the mound next week at the Seoul Jamsil Baseball Stadium to throw the first pitch. Krystal has proved her exceptional athleticism by winning last year’s “Kim Yuna’s Kiss and Cry,” a competitive figure skating survival program. As such, many baseball, as well as K-Pop, fans can’t wait to see what she’s able to do on the pitcher’s mound.
A representative of SM Entertainment stated, “While she’s been busy with promotions for f(x)’s new album, Krystal has been constantly practicing her throw to show everyone a great pitch.”
Krystal will have her ceremonial first pitch on June 19 at 6:30PM KST at the Doosan Bears vs. Nexen Heroes game. Meanwhile, her sister, Girls’ Generation’s Jessica, made headlines around the world for her infamous first pitch, putting her in the ranks of Mariah Carey for one of the world’s worst first pitches.
