The old Asian board game Go. They shouldn't use the word baduk in English.

why we use the word "go" tho, it's not like it's originated in japan...

I also don't know what baduk is.

the real question is... is it a sport?

I don't understand why "바둑" translates to "The game of go" but "바둑은 무엇입니까?" doesn't translate to "What is the game of go?" but instead Duolingo insists on the translation "What is baduk?" Doesn't make sense. If A = B then B = A
