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