On the 18th, a video became a talk. The match between NC and SSG, which was scheduled to be held at Changwon NC Park on this day, was canceled due to rain.
NC posted a video announcing the cancellation of the rain on the club’s YouTube, and the main character was NC foreign pitcher Eric Peddy.
Peddy spoke skillfully in Korean, saying “Mah!”, “Look at me”, “Young Pie”, “I’m looking for a gangrene today”, and “I’ll come tomorrow”. In the Gyeongnam dialect, it means “Come tomorrow because it’s raining and we can’t play because the stadium is in poor condition.”
As of the 21st, this video has 5.7 million views. Considering that the number of subscribers to the NC Dinos club channel ‘Ntube’ is just over 60,000, this is a huge number of views. In addition, the club’s SNS, where this video was uploaded, exceeded 7,000 likes.
NC fans were curious about the behind-the-scenes story of this video. In particular, questions about who the main character taught the dialect grew. Others suggested that Son Ah-seop, who has a strong dialect accent, told the story.
An official from the club said, “The Ntube planning team sought advice from a dialect expert at the club. He said the expert recorded it himself, and Pedi copied it after hearing it.”
NC also uploaded another new video the next day. It was a video of Peddy saying, “Wow~ The weather is right, I’m coming to play.” It was a video meaning that now that it is not raining and the weather is nice, come to the baseball stadium to watch a lot of games.안전놀이터
The reason why this video resonated with fans is that Pedi is good at his main job, baseball.
As of the 20th, Peddie recorded an average ERA of 1.63 with 7 wins and 1 loss in 9 games.
NC changed all foreign players ahead of this season. Drew Luchinski, who played the role of an ace, also bid farewell to NC, challenging the major leagues.
And one of the newly recruited pitchers by NC is Peddy.
Peddie was active as the team’s 5th starter when Washington won the World Series in 2019, and is an active major leaguer who also served as the 5th starter last season.
As a pitcher who played an active part in the big leagues, he continues his reputation in the KBO league. 2nd in ERA, 1st in most wins, 2nd in strikeouts (71), 4th in innings (55.1 innings), 3rd in WHIP (0.99), 4th in quality starts (6), 5th in batting average (0.207) It is making a name for itself in various fields.
Thanks to this kind of pedi, NC is still in the semifinals in May. As of the 20th, they are tied for fourth place. This is the reason why NC fans shout, “Let’s become a lifelong NC player because you speak the dialect well.”
