A city councilman on Tuesday pelted Changwon, South Gyeongsang Province mayor Ahn Sang-soo with two eggs to protest the location of a new baseball stadium.

Kim Seong-il, a councilman with the ruling Saenuri Party, walked up to Ahn during a council meeting. The first thrown egg hit the mayor’s right shoulder, while the second one crashed against the wall behind him.

The stadium, being held to house the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) expansion team NC Dinos, has been a controversial issue.

Originally, it was supposed to be built in Jinhae, but the team, as well as the KBO, argued that the location would not be accessible enough.

Changwon is a combination of three municipalities: Changwon, Jinhae and Masan, with the latter two becoming districts within what is now a unified city.

The stadium is being built on the ground currently occupied by Masan Stadium, which the Ahn says will be more accessible for all residents.

Jinhae politicians have protested since Ahn announced the new site earlier this month.

Ahn, the former leader of the Grand National Party, was able to duck partially out of the way, but still got a good deal of yolk on him.

Ahn said he would report the incident to police.
