Lotte, which always shines and fades at the beginning of the season, is a team with an unpleasant nickname of ‘Bomde’ amid the sarcastic remarks that it is only good in spring.
Last season, Lotte recorded 14 wins, 1 draw and 9 losses (0.609 win rate) in April, ranking second after SSG (19 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses). In terms of the number of wins, it is the same as this year. In May, they fell to the bottom of the table without even winning 10 games. The sudden sluggishness of Geopo Han Dong-hee and injuries to key players led to a sharp weakening of power. Once again, the word ‘Bomde’ was heard here and there, and eventually finished the season in 8th place.
