A week ago, Hyun Kyung Park had 10.5K followers. She's now at 16.5K. If she keeps that up she'll easily pass Six in a few days. Which is kind of crazy; Six is a far more accomplished golfer and very popular to boot.
Of course, the player who has really zoomed is Hyun Ju Yoo, who has gained around 17K followers in the past week and a half. She's now over 213K. My guess is her high profile at the KLPGA Championship really helped her numbers.
19-year-old Rookie Se Lin Hyun had a great week at the KLPGA Championship. She was interviewed today in the Korean newspaper Hanguk Ilbo.
She's had some great results we didn't remember: she finished tied for 2nd at the LET's Estrella Damm Ladies Mediterranean Open in Spain in September of 2018 and solo 2nd at the LET's Ladies European Thailand Championship in June of that year. She also finished t-29th at the LPGA's McKayson New Zealand Women's Open in early October, 2017. Her birthday is in March, 2001, so she was 17 during those LET events and 16 at the McKayson.
A lengthy behind-the-scenes video featuring (who else?) Hyun Kyung Park. It's cute how she starts to adapt to the photo shoot and after a few minutes is subtly pivoting her position between each shot. Get used to it, kid, this is your life now!
