On June 8, Choi Min Hwan throw the pitch at the baseball game between Hanwha Eagles and LG Twins that took place at Daejeon Hanbat Baseball Stadium.
Choi Min Hwan first sang the national anthem at the game with his wife Yulhee and his son Jae Yul by his side, and threw the first pitch while holding his son in a baby carrier.
However, people became concerned that Jae Yul's neck might hae suffered a shock due to Choi Min Hwan's fast movement of his upper body for the pitch.
They commented, "Are you out of your mind? Baby's neck is very weak, and everybody knows that.", "Why didn't he take the baby out and do that? Is the baby okay?", "He doesn't know anything! He doesn't seem to deserve to be a parent yet.", and more.
