Summarized from an entry in goama, issue 105.

valerio: Team Yeongnam Ilbo won the League on 2008-12-13. In his last game, Kang (his individual score was 11-7) won against Park Yeonghun 9 dan. Kang was member of this Team, winner also in 2009, with the individual score of 7-8.

Adrian Ghioc: I doubt that Kang became professional by winning Dinerstein's "Korean insei league" :)
