SungWoo Lee - Kansas City Royals Fan

SungWoo Lee has been enthusiastic about the Kansas City Royals baseball team for 20 years. He follows his favorite team from home in Seoul, South Korea.

In August, 2014, he traveled halfway around the world to Kansas City, to see the Royals play for the first time in person. He was warmly welcomed by fans and players, and quickly became a cult hero.

SungWoo returned in September, 2015 to support the Royals, and to attend the premiere of an ESPN documentary made about him.

An excellent article about SungWoo, written by Reeves Wiedeman, appears in The New Yorker. Read it here.
