Baduk, which has a long history in Oriental countries, is a mental sport that contains profound philosophy, artistry and wisdom. Recently, Baduk popularity has started to increase as well be recognized as a useful tool for human lives. Furthermore, there have been claims that it is most exciting game today. The Department of Baduk Studies was established in 1997, for the first time in history, to pursue the academic study of Baduk.
