The Samsung Lions team came to Daejeon after taking a good rest before resignation due to rain all weekend.
Park Jin-man, director of Samsung, said, “I rested well while taking a hot spring in Dongrae,” and put the meaning of this as an opportunity to relax and soothe the tired mind and body. However, on the other hand, there was also a feeling of anxiety that the rise of the other line, which had been boiling for a long time, would not be broken.
