Pak Yeong-hun (박영훈, born April 1, 1985), also known as Park Young-Hoon and Pak Yeong-Hoon is a Go player.


Pak Yeong-hun was born in Seoul. He is a professional Go player in the Hanguk Kiwon.

He is the youngest ever Korean 9 dan, promoted when he was only 19 years old. Due to the new rules set by the Hanguk Kiwon, Park moved up from 1 dan to 9 in only 4 years 7 months, which is the fastest progress ever.

Much of this was due to him winning the Fujitsu Cup in 2003, when he was at 4 dan. This also earned him exemption from military service.

His hobbies include tennis and playing Tetris.

Titles and runners-up

He ranks #8 in total amount of titles in Korea.
