No-hitters in the KBO

Since professional baseball began in Korea in 1982, there have been twelve nine inning no-hitters (노히트노런).  Eleven of them occurred during the regular season and one happened during the Korean Series. Charlie Shirek of the NC Dinos was the first and is the only foreign player (용병) to throw a no-hitter in the KBO. Below is a list of all of the no-hitters in Korea Baseball Championship (한국야구선수권대회) history.  I have included both English and Korean Versions.

In the English list, I did not include one game, as it was called in the sixth inning and not a complete nine inning game.

There has never been a perfect game thrown in Korea's highest league, however, one has been thrown in Korea Baseball Futures League (한국야구 퓨처스리그), which is the equivalent of the minor leagues. Lee, Yong-hun (이용훈), pitcher for the Lotte Giants (Futures), tossed the first and only perfect game against the Hanwha Eagles (Futures) on September 17, 2011.
