The NC announced on May 10 that “Cho Min-seok and Do Tae-hoon were selected as the May MVPs.”
NC has been selecting monthly MVPs since CAMP 2 in 2019, with both players and field staff participating in the voting process. The coaching staff selects candidates (two pitchers and two fielders in May) based on their dedication to the team and efforts behind the scenes, not just their performance and record, and the players and field staff use this as the basis for their judgment.

The MVP voting was held before the game on May 9, and a total of 55 players participated in the voting. As a result, the May Pitcher MVP went to Cho Min-seok. He received 33 votes for 60% of the vote. May MVP Do Tae-hoon received 46 votes, representing 84% of the vote.
The awards were presented on the field before the team’s home game against the SSG Landers (7-0 NC) on May 10. Cho Min-seok and Do Tae-hoon each received 1 million won in prize money.
Cho Min-seok, who appeared in 11 games in the month of May, pitching 10.1 innings and posting a 1-0 record with a 0.00 ERA, said, “In May, the bullpen did their best to fill the gap left by Kim Jin-ho and Kim Young-gyu. I think I did my best to help the team a little bit, too, and it paid off. My teammates gave me good words that made me feel confident every time. With the support of my teammates, I was able to have a good matchup with the batters every game, and as the results got better, I think my confidence got to the ball and I won the MVP for May.”
“I would like to thank my teammates and coaching staff for giving me confidence on the mound. I will take this award as an encouragement to do better and play with more responsibility on the mound.”
Meanwhile, Do Tae-hwan, who batted .350 (14-for-40) with two home runs, seven RBIs and a 0.985 OPS in 19 games in May, said, “I am happy to receive my first monthly MVP award in my eight-year career. It’s even more meaningful because it was voted for by my manager, coaching staff, and teammates,” said Do.
“I want to continue to be a player who shines for the team, not a player who shines for a moment, and I want to be a player who is the best in the process of striving for the best results, even if I can’t achieve the best results that the team and fans want every time,” he said. “I will put the feeling of being the brightest player in the team in May aside and start again in June,” he promised.
