CNBLUE’s Jung Yong Hwa to Sing National Anthem at LA Dodgers Game for “Korean Night”
CNBLUE’s leader Jung Yong Hwa will be singing the Korean National Anthem to honor the Korean major league baseball players.
On May 27 at 6:30 PM (local time), Jung Yong Hwa will sing at the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball stadium for “Korean Night,” before the game between the LA Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds begins. On the night of that event, the first ever Korean major leaguer, Park Chan Ho, as well as current Dodgers player, Ryu Hyun Jin, will be in attendance.
This will not be the first time Jung Yong Hwa and Ryu Hyun Jin meet, as the singer wrote and produced the player’s theme song for this season, titled “Ryu Can Do It.” The song rings out into the stadium every time Ryu Hyun Jin enters the field for Dodgers’ home games.
Additionally, the upcoming “Korean Night” event has been said to be planned by the Korea Tourism Organization. They plan to gift the first 50,000 attendees with a bobblehead figure of Ryu Hyun Jin. In order to cheer on his junior, Park Chan Ho will take his stand at the pitcher’s mound for the ceremonial first pitch.
