Fictional Orioles Like Team in Korean TV Drama

Recommended Posts

I'm a big fan of Korean and Japanese TV that can be streamed on line with subtitles.  Starting on December 13, a new TV show will air called "Stove League" or "Hot Stove Team" will begin which as the name implies is about building a baseball organization during the offseason.  The show will air in Korea every Friday and Saturday night until the end of January which means its will air when all there is in baseball is the Hot Stove League.  The show will likely be streaming on the website https://www.viki.com or their phone/tablet app.  Each episode will last for an hour so the whole show will go from start to finish in 16 hours.

It will likely also be streamed on https://dramacool.movie.  In general, both sites will stream each episodes without subtitles around noon in Baltimore on the same calendar day it shows in Korea.  Episodes with English subtitles are usually available in Baltimore around four to six hours later.

The description of the plot sounds a lot like the Orioles. The team, which is called the Dreams, is dreadful and hires a new general manager to direct a turnaround.  Based on what I've seen in leaks about the script and the previews, it appears that problems exist in both the business and baseball sides of the organization.  My hunch that viewers who are familiar with movies about bad professional baseball teams will see homages to aspects of these movies.  Previously, I've seen baseball based TV shows in Korea and Japan that appear to have been partially inspired by Sandlot and the Bad News Bears. This is the first one that I've seen that uses pro ball as the hook for a TV show.  My bet is that SBS, the network that green lighted the show, believed that baseball crazy Korea needed a fix during the offseason.

Trailers and pictures of the cast.  The trailers have no subtitles but I think all readers of Orioles Hangout will be able to get the gist of the story just from the images in the previews. http://asianwiki.com/Hot_Stove_League

My wife and I love Korean TV and we watch a great deal of it. There was a love story on a couple of years ago that centered around a baseball team, I think it was called wild love. It was a stupid show but I liked it.

 It if you like Korean TV shows, look up W:A Tale of Two Worlds.

It ranks very high on my list of all time best TV shows. It raises a whole lot of ethical and spiritual questions, while still being incredibly exciting interesting and well acted. It’s also very logical within itself, there are no weird plot lapses or logical gaps.

Bridal Mask is another good and fun show.

Selfishly hoping for a Hyun Soo Kim cameo.
