1982 Korean Series
OB had finished first in the 1982 KBO at 56-24 under manager Yeong-duk Kim. They were led by KBO MVP Chul-soon Park (24-4, 1.84), the league leader in wins and ERA. The offense was solid as well with Woo-yol Kim (.310/.427/.533, 13 HR), Dong-kyun Yoon (.342/.428/.532), Kyung-sik Shin (.334/.379/.468) and Cheon-seo Koo (.308/.405/.421). The problem was the lack of a solid #2 pitcher after Park.
Samsung was 54-26 under skipper Young-mu Suh. Tae-soo Chang (.336/.454/.477, 34 SB) and Man-soo Lee (.289/.399/.500, 13 HR) were their offensive leaders. Yeong-ho Kwon (15-5, 2 Sv, 2.37), Kyu-bong Hwang (15-11, 11 Sv, 2.47), Nak-soo Song (8-3, 2 Sv, 2.81) and Sun-hee Lee (15-7, Sv, 2.91).

In game 1, October 5, the teams tied, 3-3, in 15 innings, an inauspicious start to the first Series. Hak-soo Ham hit the first homer in Series history, a two-run shot for Samsung in the 6th, one of only 3 Samsung hits, while OB had 15 hits. Kwon and Cheol-won Kang were the starting pitchers.

A day later, Samsung won, 9-0, as Sun-hee Lee got the first Series win and Song the first save. Hyung-chul Kye took the first loss. OB would win the next four games, though. On the 8th, the Bears won, 5-3. Dae-yong Sunu took the win over Kwon while Park saved it. Hyun-bal Chang homered for the Lions.
On October 9, OB edged out Samsung, 7-6, thanks to homers by Won-yol Kim and Jong-hyun Jeong; Chang homered for the Lions. Tae-hwan Hwang got the win over Kyu-bong Hwang and Park got his second save. In game 5 on the 10th, OB won another one-run affair, 5-4. Tae-hwan Hwang got his second straight win, beating Sun-hee Lee. Won-yol Kim and Yoo-dong Kim homered for OB, Dae-seok Oh and Chan Park for Samsung.
