Han HaeWon, Professional baduk player and Baduk TV commentator. "If I were not a Baduk player, I would have been a performer for musicals."
Han HaeWon, 2p (22 yrs). She is a new generation baduk
player who has been changing Baduk from "philosophy"
to "entertainment" and embraced the young people and
females into baduk population. Pretty appearance, solid
baduk skill, and bouncy tv performance attracted a few
fans. There are more than 2500 regular members in her
Internet fan café.
She currently is a regular for the Baduk TV programs "Sang Sang Baduk game" and "Challenge professionals". And she frequently appears as an assistant commentator for major baduk championships for national TVs. Especially "Sang Sang Baduk game" where she anchors with Lee SeDol has become popular even among people who do not play baduk.
About gossips regarding closeness between she and Lee SeDol, Han HaeWon dismisses saying "He is not interested in me but girls younger than he is".
She started baduk when she was in the 4th grade of
primary school and became a professional in 1998. Her
teacher is Kim Won. Her winning percentage is over 40%
which is not bad considering her extra baduk activities
