Kim In became a professional in 1958 when he was 15. He was a student at the legendary Minoru Kitani school in 1962 and left to return home a year later. He was promoted to 9 dan in 1983, and was the third ever 9 dan in Korea. He was famous for his playing in the 60’s and 70’s. Currently he is the managing director for the Hanguk Kiwon.
Kim In was the top player in South Korea before the rise of Cho Hun-hyeon.
This set of his collected games is traditionally bound into three volumes (Sky, Earth, and Man). While the main text at the beginning and at the end of each volume is in Korean, the title of the set and the accompanying text to each game is mainly in traditional Chinese. The diagrams within are printed with arabic numerals.
