Rosenthal is mistaken; they play the two games over two days (game 1 is Wednesday night/Thursday morning at 1 am eastern, game 2 is Thursday night/Friday morning...go NC Dinos!). They have a weird playoff system in Korea. It’s a ten-team league. The 4th and 5th place teams play in the two-game Wild Card series, with the 4th place team hosting both games and needing to win only one. The winner faces the 3rd place team in the best-of-five semi-playoff; the winner faces the 2nd place team in the best-of-five playoff; the winner faces the 1st place team in the best-of-seven Korean Series. Until recently, there were a couple of neutral site games in the Korean Series. So the 1st place team has a bye into the finals, but has to sit around for a long time between the end of the season and the start of their postseason.
