Ko Young-pyo, who graduated from Dongguk University, joined KT through the 2014 rookie draft and worked as a starter and bullpen until 2018.

Ko Young-pyo has been active as an ace since the 2021 season, when he returned from military service.

In the 2021 season, he led KT’s first integrated championship with 11 wins, 6 losses,

an average ERA of 2.92, and in the 2023 season, he achieved 12 wins, 7 losses, and an average ERA of 2.78.

As soon as KT finished the 2023 season, it pursued a multi-year contract with Ko Young-pyo,

who will qualify as a free agent after the 2024 season.

After setting up the negotiation table several times, the period and amount were adjusted.

This is the first time that KT has signed a non-FA multi-year contract.

KT general manager Na Do-hyeon said, “Go Young-pyo is the club’s best franchise star and the player who is the center of the pitching staff,” and added,

“Because he is a pitcher who serves as an example to our juniors, we have signed a non-FA multi-year contract.”

Go Young-pyo said, “I am grateful to the club for signing me with good conditions,” and added,

“I am very happy to be able to continue my playing career for a long time as a founding member.”

Ko Young-pyo became the sixth pitcher in the KBO League to sign a multi-year non-FA contract.

Among these, in terms of total amount, it is the third largest after SSG Landers Kim Gwang-hyun (4 years, 15.1 billion won) and NC Dinos Koo Chang-mo (up to 7 years, 13.2 billion won).
