This tournament is jointly sponsored by Mok Jinseok 9-dan and his father (who is an entrepreneur and used to be a board member of the Korean Baduk Association). The tournament is designed to help young players who otherwise don't have enough formal games to play. It is unclear at the time of writing whether this tournament will repeat in future years.

First introduced in 2015, this tournament is Korea's response to China's popular Women's League that helps sharpen the skills of top Chinese female players. This is even more interesting because it accommodates more players and allows top-level foreign players to join. The tournament is sponsored by MDM, a real estate company.
