„Eunji is an extremely solid player. She has a very consistent style, which has a basis in snooker from her father, a former national coach for South Korea. This has enabled her to topple numerous world champions. She never plays too fast or slow, and keeps a calm demeanor. Which will come in handy under the intense pressure of the AM8 Queens Cup“, explained Charlie Williams, Executive Producer of the event.

„We promised everyone new faces with the highest level of skill. Eunji has learned from some of the most renowned coaches in the world, and has delivered great results in big time events. This is an opportunity she has trained her entire life for“, said Cindy Lee, CEO of Dragon Promotions.

„I’m very nervous but also excited to play my first time in representing Team Asia. It’s a huge honor beyond just ordinary prize money and trophies. It’s an awesome feeling to know I will have great players around me every moment, and I am ready to give my all for the team and bring glory to our respective Asian countries“, said Eunji Park originally from Incheon, South Korea. The Philippines may be a lucky place for her as she has had some major victories including two top 5 finishes at the World Championships there.

Park has won numerous pro events in Korea and showed promised early on in her career representing South Korea at the World Junior Championship. She was awarded the Korea Pro Tour Rookie of the Year at age 19, and a few years later trained in the United States under the tutelage of renowned pro player and coach Charlie Williams. She went on in her first year in America to win a WPBA US Open qualifier and then finished 3rd at her debut WPBA appearance defeating Jeanette Lee on ESPN in the quarter-finals.
