In 2010, An Younggil said:

He loves fighting and he doesn’t miss cutting points. He plays aggressively and roughly as he is a genuine infighter and especially good at local battles.

I once played him officially in 2007. I was planning to go abroad to spread Go, and I thought it could be my last game on main tournament before leaving. I tried to play my best because of that reason, and the opening was alright up to the middle game. When I felt I was reading the game, I made a simple mistake in the center, and I lost badly without any chance afterwards. I felt his powerful reading through the whole game.[1]
