Shin Soo Choo's wife Won Mi Ha Choo

Even though it is still early in his career, Shin-Soo Choo is already one of the more successful players from South Korea. This is somewhat surprising as although we mostly hear about Japanese players, the South Koreans usually have a very good showing at the World Baseball Classic and Olympics. Choo will look to bounce back from an injury-filled 2012 season and be a catalyst for the powerful Cincinnati Reds offense.

Things have often happened quickly in Choo’s life. In 2000, before he even graduated high school in South Korea, the Seattle Mariners signed him. And then there’s the story about Shin-Soo Choo’s wife WonMi Ha Choo. They met in South Korea in 2004 and after just a few months of dating, she moved to the U.S. to be with him.

Choo is a very hard worker and can attribute his good work ethic to his father, who was a boxer. Allegedly part of Choo’s regular workout includes fingertip pushups to strengthen his wrists, which to me just sounds awful.

Shin-Soo and his wife Won now reside in Arizona and honestly, we really can’t figure why that is. The couple has two sons and daughter born in 2005, 2009 and 2011.

    I am a 72 year old REDS fan and love watching your husband play. Wishing the best for your family.

    We've been Reds fans for many years and truly enjoy watching Shin Soo play on our beloved team. He is a most welcomed addition to the team. You can see how much he respects the game and takes pride in his work. Talent can only get you so far but when when you couple it with hard work, the sky's the limit. He is the true embodiment of that. Continue to shoot for the stars, Shin Soo! Best wishes to you and your beautiful family.

    Hello. I live in Tacoma, WA, and was very disappointed when Shin-Soo Choo was traded by the Seattle Mariners. Many of us were looking forward to seeing him play every day in Seattle. Now, many of us are hoping he will re-sign with the Mariners and come back to the beautiful Northwest to play. And, we have our spring training in Arizona where you live....plus it is a pretty short flight from Seattle to Arizona.

    We hope you come back to Seattle. With the additions of Robinson Cano and Cory Hart, plus Shin-Soo Choo, Seattle will be competing for the title in 2014. PLEASE COME BACK. YOUR TRADE WAS A MISTAKE BY THE GENERAL MANAGER (WHO HAS BEEN LET GO), AND WE WOULD ALL LOVE IT IF YOU RETURNED.
