Kim Ung-Yong: World’s highest IQ


Kim Ung-Yong (born March 8, 1962) is a Korean child prodigy. Kim was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records under "Highest IQ"; the book estimated the boy's score at about 210.

Shortly after birth, Kim began to display extraordinary intellectual ability. He began speaking at 6 months, could converse fluently by age 1, and was able to read Japanese, Korean, German, and English by his third birthday. On November 2, 1967, at age 4, he solved an advanced stochastic differential equation. Later, on Japanese television, he demonstrated his proficiency in Chinese, Spanish, Vietnamese, German, English, Japanese, and Korean. Even in early childhood, he began to write poetry and was an exceptional painter.
