Kim Jae-Soo possibly climbed all 14

It is reported, that Kim Jae-Soo also ascended Annapurna I on April 26th! The report claims all the 14 8000ers for him, but there is a problem.

Some years ago a Korean mountaineer and chronicler informed about a climbing date for Kim Jae-Soo on Cho Oyu in 1993. It was attempted to confirm this ascent, because nobody outside of Korea knew about it! No details were given since then. So Miss Hawley had and has no entry for this ascent in her Himalayan Database. 

As long, as there is no clarifying answer from Korea about the 1993 Cho Oyu ascent, the ascent remains unrecognized in our archives and not even recorded in the Himalayan Database.

Hopefully it will be cleared soon
