The Korean Baduk Association has approved the first guest article requested by Japan’s Go prodigy Sumire Nakamura (仲邑菫, 14), 3rd dan.
The Korea Research Institute held a steering committee meeting on the 15th and unanimously passed the approval plan for Nakamura’s guest article submitted by the Korea Professional Engineers Association.메이저놀이터
Accordingly, the final decision on whether to approve Nakamura’s guest article will be made at the Board of Directors of the Korea Foundation to be held on the 26th of next month.
Considering that there have been almost no cases where proposals submitted by her professional knight association were rejected by the board of directors, Nakamura’s guest knight activity is virtually confirmed.
Nakamura, who became the youngest professional player in Japanese Go history by joining Nippon Baduk’s special selection for gifted players in April 2019 when she was 10 years old, won the Women’s Baduk Tournament in February of this year and set the record for the youngest player to tie.
However, Nakamura attracted attention by submitting a guest article application to the Korea Foundation early last month.
Nakamura is the first professional player from Nihon Kiwon, known as the home of modern baduk, to move overseas.
Previously, Nakamura took lessons at ‘Han Jong-jin Baduk Dojang’ from 2017 to 2019.
This season, she is working as a foreign player on the Suncheon Bay National Garden team in the NH Nonghyup Bank Korean Women’s Baduk League.
Even if Nakamura is finally approved as a guest knight by the Korean Association’s board of directors next month, she plans to come to Korea after defending the Japanese women’s title in February next year.
