Romanization of Current and Former KBO League Players – Pitchers

With the confusing Romanization of the Korean language and disobeying manners of the Korean people, it is extremely difficult to figure out how to Romanize a Korean’s name or search for a specific Korean person.  Therefore, in hopes to reduce confusion and build somewhat of a standard, I have done my best to organize a list KBO League players who have an official way to Romanize their name.

So far, the best way to figure out a Korean player’s official Romanization is to find out whether they had played overseas.  What I mean by playing overseas pertains to leagues outside Korea or international competitions.  English-speaking leagues would force a player to go by an officially Romanized name, while international competitions will usually list the names that are on each player’s passports.

I did turn the first letter in the second syllable of each names into lower case because that is how the National Institute of the Korean Language has standardized Romanizing Korean personal names.

If the player you seek is not on this list, well, I would have to suggest to go by South Korea’s standard Romanization rule to spell his name.

Yes, in Korea, people have their last name (family name or surname) read or written before their given name (with no comma in between).  It would not hurt to respect this part of the culture, too.

*Use [Ctrl+F] to search for a pitcher(s).
