Founders' Welcome Note:

If you are new to this site, we welcome you.

For the past couple of years, our site was known as the 'Unofficial Site of K.J. Choi', since an official site was created for K.J. in his homeland. Unfortunately, K.J.'s official site was discontinued last year but we've been hearing that another one is in the works. As for the name 'Unofficial', we didn't like the sound of it and frankly, it got old.

So recently, we thought it would make sense to change the name of our site to what it is called today - The Ultimate K.J. Choi Fan Site. We also needed to give the site a fresh new look (ie. no more frames!). Another improvement is the new Message Board. Please feel free to post.

Please be patient as we continue to make improvements to our site. We will have all of the galleries updated shortly.
