According to a report in JoongAng Ilbo (via Sponichi), some members of the Yomiuri front office are in Korea to check on a number of players.  Yomiuri was originally scheduled to catch a Doosan - Kia game on the 3rd, but it was canceled due to rain.  They did, however, catch a Hanwha - Lotte game on the 4th.

The Giants are said to be interested in players like Dae-Ho Lee (Lotte Giants), Hyun-Jin Ryu (Hanwha Eagles), and Suk-Min Yoon (Kia Tigers).  Lee has been rumored to be drawing interest from other NPB teams like Lotte, Orix, and Rakuten.
