Keun-Woo Jeong, a former Korean series winner and a Gold Glove second baseman in the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) league, accepted a role as a coach on the Korean women's baseball national team. Jeong helped Korea win gold at the Beijing 2008 Olympics, the inaugural WBSC Premier12 and the WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup 2000.

Jeong starred in the Seoul Home Run Derby X event in September.

"Manager Sang-moon Yang called me, and I accepted right away," commented Jeong. "I wanted to work with him. It's an honour to wear a National Team uniform again."

Yang, 61, is a former KBO pitcher and manager.

Dong-Hyeon Lee, Yong-Un Jeong, Geun-Woo Jeong and Soon-jin Bang will also serve on the coaching staff.
