Orioles outfielder Hyun Soo Kim on the cover of 'MLB The Show 17' — in South Korea

Orioles outfielder Hyun Soo Kim will be on the cover of "MLB The Show 17" — in South Korea.

Hyun Soo Kim is big in South Korea. 

The Orioles outfielder, Seoul native and former Korea Baseball Organization star will grace the cover of the popular "MLB The Show" video game in the country this year, according to Dan Kurtz, founder of the English-language MyKBO.net.  

Kim follows Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang as a cover athlete overseas and joins Ken Griffey Jr. as one of the faces of this year's game. 

"MLB The Show 17" will be released March 28, and Kim figures to get a ratings bump. He was rated a solid if unspectacular 70 overall in his first appearance in last year's game.
