“You have too much bullshit…” Oh Jae-won reignites conflict with Yang Chang-seop with ‘verbal abuse’

Former Spotify commentator Oh Jae-won (38), who has repeatedly hung up his microphone amid controversy, has gotten himself into trouble again.

On March 23, Oh publicly sniped at Samsung pitcher Yang Chang-seop 토스카지노(23) on his Instagram Live. Apparently, he was still holding a grudge from a social media spat two months ago.

The game between Samsung and SSG in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on June 24. In the bottom of the seventh inning, with runners on first and third base, Yang Chang-seop threw a pitch that hit SSG’s Choi Jung in the body, and Oh Jae-won, who was commentating on the game, said, “This is an open slap,” and raised the suspicion of a beanball, saying, “I hate this situation the most.” He added, “Choi Jung doesn’t know. He then accused Choi, saying that he was sure that Choi didn’t know.

In response, Yang posted on his Instagram after the game, “Fish are always caught with their mouths. Humans are also caught by the mouth.” He posted a picture with a Talmudic proverb. He didn’t mention his real name, but it seemed to be aimed at Oh Jae-won, who had criticized him.

He then responded with a Talmudic verse of his own, which read, “A fool speaks of what he has heard, and a wise man speaks of what he has seen.” The exchange did not end there.

Oh didn’t stop there. The next day, on the 25th, during the game broadcast, he said, “(SSG) please win today and sweep,” which sparked a controversy over biased commentary. The ongoing controversy eventually led to Oh terminating his contract with Spotify and hanging up his commentary hat.

Two months later, he revisited the incident and sparked controversy. “It all started because of Yang Chang-seop,” Oh Jae-won said on his Instagram Live, adding that he was so angry that he couldn’t stand the overlap of events.

He held up a rock and said, “Even if I throw with this, I’ll throw better than you,” and added, “Would you like to be hit with this? How much does it hurt?” He continued, “I beat Oh Jae-won with a Talmud. Two of them.”

After showing his 2015 Premier 12 championship ring, Oh Jae-won said, “I gave my country for my country,” and then cursed his finger, saying, “Chang-seop, eat this.” The harsh criticism and profanity directed at his junior raised eyebrows.

Even before this incident, Oh Jae-won had been criticized for his sniping remarks. In an interview with a media outlet, he criticized “Korean Express” Park Chan-ho, 50, saying, “There were not one or two players who made fools of themselves by saying irresponsible things.” However, his comments about Yang Chang-seop caused controversy by making judgments without considering the player’s position.

At the time, Oh apologized for his comments about Park Chan-ho shortly afterward. “I will not avoid criticism and reprimand for this,” he said, adding, “I will once again realize that I need to be more cautious.” He bowed his head. However, two months later, the controversy over Yang Chang-seop and the nerve warfare has only intensified.
