The press is talking about Kyu Jung Baek playing on the LPGA next year in much the same way as Hyo Joo is planning (splitting her time). It's not clear to me whether that's hypothetical or not, so consider that a definite maybe.
So a recent article said that Hyo Joo and Kyu Jung will be on the LPGA in 2015 (with the qualifier about Kyu Jung I said above), Ha Na Jang and Sei Young Kim will go to LPGA Q-School (along with Jung Eun Lee 5 and Choo Young Park, Hee Young's little sis), and Ha Neul Kim and Hee Kyung Bae will try out for the JLPGA tour.
Unknown Shin Young Park shot a 66 to take a two shot lead after round one.
Tied for second at -4 are several players, most notably KLPGA superstar Ha Neul Kim, still looking for her first win of 2014, and Rookie star Jin Young Ko.
Hyo Joo Kim, seeking her sixth (!) win of 2014, is another shot back at 3 under. Be very afraid.
Shin Ae Ahn is also at 3 under.
Kyu Jung Baek is another shot back at 70.
Two more days!

One of the few times that I saw Choo Young name on the KLPGA leaderboard. Yet she is trying to join her sister on the LPGA tour.
I guess He Young told her it was easier out here, than it is on KLPGA.
There have been many lesser skilled pros than CYP who have caught lightening in a bottle for one week in December to obtain their exempt LPGA card. No....I don't really expect CYP to light it up on tour in 2015 if she does obtain her card.....but if she does ......I'll watch her play a few holes in Vancouver....why?...cause she is The Mini Rocket....otherwise....I'd likely pay no or minimal attention.
e.g.) If Cheyenne's last name was Smith...it would be Cheyenne who?
