First meeting since the Bingsheng Cup
These two played a game in the final of the Bingsheng Cup last September (2010), and Park won that game to take the title.
Jieun is one of the strongest female players in Korea, along with Rui Naiwei 9p and Cho Hyeyeon 9p. On the other hand, Joanne must be the strongest female player in Taiwan and she has had good results lately.
Two very popular players
Jieun is the most popular female player in Korea, and Joanne might be the same in Taiwan and China. Oh, she has lots of Australian fans as well because she was born in Australia.
On the other hand, Joanne defeated Kim Jaeyoung 1p before meeting Jieun. She played pretty well in this game too, but Jieun is more experienced.
Joanne’s been improving so amazingly quickly, so next time will be even better!
