At long last, SungWoo Lee arrives in KC to see beloved Royals in person

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Royals fans on social media welcomed an out-of-town visitor on Tuesday night, but the term “out-of-town” doesn’t quite do this superfan justice.

SungWoo Lee is a die-hard Royals fan who follows his favorite team from South Korea.

He arrived at Kansas City International Airport Tuesday night for his first trip to Kansas City. While in town SungWoo will also go to the Chiefs preseason game on Thursday, and what’s sure to be a huge thrill, he’ll also throw the pitch at the Royals game on Monday.

Fox 4 photojournalist Jon Haiduk shows us the big welcome he’s getting and the journey it took to bring him here.
