Hey, Parik. You did a great job! Since most western players are not familiar with Tygem and tygem stars. If I watch a game on Tygem, I just go back to your articles to see players' story and this way it's much more interesting to watch the games.
Thanks again and my best wishes to you!

Hello Parik! Like many others, I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated your posts, always well-written, documented and burning with passion! It was a great time reading you, and I wish you the best for your personal issues. Thanks for everything.
(and do no hesitate to come back and post from time to time when you feel it, hehe)
Thank you, Parik
It was always a big pleasure to read your articles!
Hi Parik, it was a real pleasure to read you. Most if the time i was not even looking at the games but the way you wrote about top go players made it so exciting i was checking everyday if a new article had arrived. I always wanted to post a comment to thank you and now I wish i did it earlier. Im your biggest fan in japan, wish you the best for 2012.
I haven't commented in a while but just wanted to also say thanks to Parik for all the articles. I've followed them with great interest throughout the year and echo the others sentiments that one day wish you'll continue :-)
Happy New Year!
I appreciate that you care.
Tygem is a big thief which steals my time. There are also some personal reasons and I have the feeling that this is the right time to stop.
thank you parik for every of your article you wrote. i only hope you can change your decision to stop writing them. wish you all the best!

Parik, may I ask, why will you stop writing these articles? I have always enjoyed them very much!
Thank you, kishakyuu. Your comments have always been very helpful and completed the articles in the best possible way.
Yes, you are right. I don't know how, but I read "I don't think so", instead of "I do think so". Fortunately, this blindness does not change much. It's still some mystery there.
In addition to the sadness resulting from the lost of my favorite player in the finals, the news of your "farewell" to writing articles made me much more upset. I do not agree with your comment that "They speak better than any of my words", actually your articles and those games have been just completed eachother. I'm sure that many of us learned a lot of interesting stories behind those games, and looked at the games with different perspectives by the help of your very intriguing articles. Now, I can just hope, willingly, that you begin writing again someday.
By the way, I think there is a little misunderstanding in my comment from the previous article. There I wrote "What do you think, is he Park Junghwan? I do think so". I think that he's certainly Park Junghwan (even in this trimmed nonsense picture, it can be seen that he took his chracteristic position which he generally takes in the formal matches), for me, there's not even a slight suspicion on this subject.
Also, to say some words about the finals, I should say that "hope(P)" certainly outplayed "idontca1" in all the three games, even if he lost one. Taking into account that Park is actually very good at fast games -as he once won the KBS Cup, which is played with short time limits-, his opponent, who put "idontca1" into terrible situations all the time while taking less thinking time, must be certainly one of the tops. Tan Xiao? Not probably. I also agree with the comments: Kong Ji and Gu Li are the two most probable correct answers.
In the end, I'd like to extend my thanks to you for all your efforts Parik. I wish you the best!
