The Korea Baseball Organization Most Valuable Player Award is given to the player judged the league's most valuable player in the Korean Series. Samsung Lions first baseman Seung-yeop Lee was the recipient of the award a record five times, including three years in a row form 2001 to 2003. Haitai Tigers pitcher Dong-Yeol Son won the award three times in the late 1980s, the second most in league history. Tyrone Woods and Danny Rios are the only non-Koreans to win the awards, Woods having won it in 1998 with the OB Bears, the first year that the KBO allowed foreigners.
