Korean teams jumped in to recruit Pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu's Los Angeles Dodgers teammate 'Ak-Dong' Puig.

Puig is aiming to return to the big leagues, but there is also the possibility of a trip to Korea.

Cuban-born Yasiel Puig made his debut for the Los Angeles Dodgers with Ryu Hyun-jin in 2013 and left a strong impression on Korean fans with his great long hitting power and strong shoulders.

Although he was recognized for his potential to the point where he finished second in the Rookie of the Year voting, he was overlaid with privacy issues due to his outrageous brutality and insincere training attitude.

Recently, Kiwoom and other KBO clubs have sent love calls to Puig, who has been 'missing' for the past two years.

The El Nuevo Herald, a Spanish-language media in the United States, said, "Puig has received a large sum of money from a Korean club."

Puig's agent said that Puig's mental problem was solved with medication, and that the sexual assault case that emerged last year was also completed, and that he would wait for the big league's offer first.

However, in a situation in which negotiations are impossible due to the lockout in the major leagues, and the start of the season as well as spring camp is unclear, the spark for Puig's trip to Korea is still alive.
