List of Korean professionals


This page is in need of attention.
Reason: The romanization is inaccurate. But List of Korean Names has its own problems too. It'll take a lot of effort to create a proper list. Plus: being organized along an unstable criterium like rank, it is unmaintainable. Better order alphabetically

List of professional players who are from or reside in South Korea.

bugcat: I suggest that instead of ordering by rank or alphabetised romanisation, we copy the hangul ordering of the KBA site. I'm thinking of possibly beginning that project, but I want to make sure that all the professionals on this list have been articled first.

Hankuk Kiwon (KBA)

List of professionals affiliated with Hankuk Kiwon. Based on [ext] the official list on their website.

Pros who teach outside Korea got an "honorary" rank bump to prevent confusion with amateur dan ranks. That's why they are listed lower here.

Automatic romanization was used, so they could be different to the page titles in SL.
