F.T Island Minhwan under fire after throwing first pitch with his son

On June 8, FTISLAND’s Minhwan threw the first pitch at the baseball game between the Hanhwa Eagles and the LG Twins that took place at the Daejeon Hanbat Baseball Stadium.

Minhwan is currently a regular on the show “Mr. House Husband” with Yulhee, his wife, and their young son, Jaeyul (nicknamed Jjangi). Minhwan first sang the national anthem at the game with Yulhee and Jaeyul by his side, and then threw the first pitch while holding his son in a baby carrier.

However, after the Hanhwa Eagles uploaded the video of the pitch online, people became concerned that the baby’s neck might have suffered a shock due to Minhwan’s fast twisting of his upper body during the pitch.

On June 9, Minhwan posted an apology on his personal Instagram.

Hello, this is Choi Minhwan.

I apologize for making many people worry about my first pitch at the baseball game between LG and Hanhwa because it could have been dangerous for the baby.

This was my first time being invited to throw the first pitch, and I was happy to think that I could share such an honor with my son. Before I went up to throw the pitch, I practiced a lot and thought a lot about how I could throw a pitch that would suit the moment and also be safe. In the end, due to my carelessness, it could have been dangerous for my baby, and I’m sorry for causing many people to worry about this.

As a father who loves his baby more than anyone else in the world, I will do my best to make sure that my child grows up safe and healthy. I apologize once again for causing problems.

This is what happens when you use your baby as a promotional tool.

seriously. the baby could have just sat in the sidelines with mom and still seen his dad throw a pitch. it didn't need to be on him

omg. that gif is quite shocking. Should have done underhanded fool.

While some people have been too harsh over this (he and Yulhee really can't catch a break huh) and it was a genuine mistake, I'm glad he said something because that was definitely terrifying. You'd think he or the staff would had thought about this when he was practising beforehand?

A shame this happened bc the family was otherwise quite cute at this event

at least support the kid’s neck, ffs

Jesus, I feel like it's rule#1 of dealing with babies to always support their heads when making wide movements. I don't even like Lee Hwijae but he managed to throw a pitch with both sons strapped to him without putting them in danger
