LG Philippines gave South Korea’s professional basketball team Changwon LG Sakers a warm welcome as they visited the country for a series of tune-up games against local players.
Changwon LG Sakers returned to the Philippines to have tune-up games against PBA and UAAP teams. The team is based in Changwon and has LG Electronics as its primary sponsor, which is also based in the same city.
Meanwhile, a Filipino professional basketball player, Justin Gutang, is also a part of their team. He is one of the collegiate standouts from the College of Saint Benilde.
LG Electronics Philippines’ Managing Director, Mr. Sungjae Kim, and LG Philippines Product Director, Mr. Changsoo Jang, handed over units of LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifiers to LG Sakers headed by Head Coach Sang Hyun Cho, together with Gutang.
Lee Gwan Hee, who used to play locally for the Phoenix Fuel Masters, was happy to be back in the country. “I think both our PBA and KBL (experience) made it possible to level up in our playing field.” Gutang gamely talked to the media about his new stint for KBL. “It has been amazing so far, it’s a blessing.”
Mr. Sungjae Kim was excited about the visit, saying, “We can’t wait to see more of these events in the future. Aside from honing their skills on the court, each team also gets exposed to different cultures.”
