: State of the Korean pro scene?

bugcat, 2017: What's going on in the Korean professional Go scene now that (seemingly?) all their big titles have shuffled off the mortal coil? Obviously the top pros like Park Junghwan can just refocus on the international tournaments; but it's got to be tough for the guys outside the Korean top ten, probably getting nowhere near the income from game fees of their opposite numbers in Japan.
Also any discussion of the reason behind the decline would be interesting.
