Samsung, Doosan, and SSG break the Korean Series rule after 24 years?

It’s possible. Twenty-four years after the 1999 Korean Series between Hanwha and Lotte, there is a glimmer of hope for a Korean Series without Samsung, Doosan, or SSG. The regular season is still nearly two months away. The Hangzhou Asian Games in late September will be the biggest factor in the final standings. The current standings could change dramatically after 144 games.
