Back in 1999-2000 there was a set of three famous Korean books called the “Report of Choong-am Research“. With detailed studies of innovative sequences in the opening and middlegame, this set contains the distillation of the then cutting-edge research by the members of a youthful Korean baduk study group. The books were very popular and the first two volumes were subsequently translated into Chinese and Japanese. But after an output of only three volumes, the group decided to keep all further studies private possibly to avoid showing more Korean innovations to eager international competitors.
The present book is in similar fashion the result of the group study effort of a new generation of successful young (mid-20’s) Korean baduk professionals. They bring us a new collection of 20 detailed discussions on various innovative ideas and thoughts on fuseki development which came about within the last few years.
