Cho Hye Yeon in Korean Newspaper
Just found an article about Cho Hye Yeon’s blog in the English section of the Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo: “Student’s Blog Takes Baduk to a Global Audience”
According to wikipedia
, Chosun Ilbo is one of the major newspapers in South Korea.
I wrote about Hye Yeon and her wonderful blog
in the past as well.
Very recently (yesterday, actually), she defended the honor of the female team in the GG Auction Cup
, stopping Kim Jongsoo. (This is a Korean tournament between female players and senior male players. The first in the senior team was the famous Jimmy Cha (Cha Minsoo is his Korean name) who eliminated 5 female players before being finally defeated by Lee Minjin. She defeated 4 more seniors before losing to Kim Jongsoo).
Here’s Hye Yeon playing agains Kim Jongsoo:
Photo after the game:
The lids of stone bowls signed by the two players. Guess which one is signed by Hye Yeon:
Very luckily for the American Go players, Hye Yeon will visit the US Go Congress this year
