Kwang Hyun Kim's time in the majors is over.

The free-agent left-hander signed a four-year, $12.3-million contract to return to the KBO's SSG Landers, according to Jeeho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency.

Kim joins former MLB pitchers Ivan Nova and Wilmer Font on the SSG Landers.

The 33-year-old Kim appeared in 35 games - 28 starts - for the St. Louis Cardinals over the past two seasons, fashioning a 10-7 record with a 2.98 ERA and 1.22 WHIP.

The veteran hurler spent 12 seasons with the SK Wyverns - who became the SSG Landers - before playing for the Cardinals.
