Nine-year-old Go prodigy Sumire Nakamura attends a press conference at the Korea Baduk Association in Seoul on Jan. 22, 2019. Nakamura made headlines earlier this month when reports said the current fourth-grader would be recognized as the youngest professional Go player in Japan. She will take on professional Choi Jeong, the highest ranked female South Korean Go player, on Jan. 23. The strategic two-person board game, also known as "baduk" in Korean and "weiqi" in Chinese, is popular across Northeast Asia. (Yonhap)
