Park Young-hoon (박영훈 역) is a main character in the 2016 South-Korean sports film Split (스플릿).

Character creation[edit]

Writer and director Choi Kook-hee was inspired to write the script after seeing an autistic man bowling with an atypical technique and still getting extremely high scores.[1]


Young-hoon's father died when he was young, and his mother had an affair and left, leaving him in the care of his grandmother. When she died, she left a restaurant in his name. His mother and her new family moved back, and it is presumably at this point that he is sent to a hospital/institution to live.


He is stated to have an intellectual disability and "shows signs of autism".


  • His birth date is 13 September 1991. He turns 27 during the film.
