Oh joined the All-Star game at the age of 41 years, 11 months and 21 days. The previous record of oldest player to play in an All-Star game was Yang Joon-hyuk (41 years, 1 month and 28 days) in 2010. Oh also challenged to save the oldest ever All-Star game (35 years, 2 months and 16 days) held by Gye Hyeong-cheol (35 years, 2 months and 16 days) in 1988, but failed due to the team’s defeat.

LG Twins batter Kim Hyun-soo played in the bottom of the fifth inning to tie Yang Jun-hyuk’s 13th consecutive year of play. Kim has been named an All-Star for 15 times in his career, and tied with Yang for the most in his career. If Kim is selected as an All-Star next year, he will be able to record the longest consecutive appearance at All-Star games and the largest number of players selected.

The Kia Tigers’ Choi Hyung-woo, who was named the MVP “Mr. All Star” at the age of 40 years, six months and 20 days, became the oldest MVP of the All-Star Game, beating Lee Byung-kyu (36 years, eight months and 28 days) in 2011. Choi had three hits and two RBIs from four times at bat, including a one-run homer, in the top of the second inning.

Ryu Hyun-jin of the Hanwha Eagles, who participated in the “Festival of Stars” for the first time in 12 years, received the Outstanding Pitcher Award this year following 2012. A total of 22,500 spectators visited the All-Star Game on the day.
