Le Ping (楽 平, Japanese: Rei Pin, Chinese Hanyu Pinyin: Lè Píng) - A Chinese Go player who faces off against Shinichiro Isumi,
Le Ping bears an uncanny resemblance to Yoshitaka Waya.
Le Ping is childish and doesn't take Go seriously, and is also known for ditching classes. He eventually started taking Go seriously after he lost to Isumi, although Yang Hai mentioned that Le Ping had not matured at all, and one time he tried to sneak into Yang Hai's luggage and was discovered.

Le Ping's Go skills are very poor according to Yang Hai.
After Le Ping lost to Isumi he became more serious about Go and hung out more with Isumi. He became closer to Isumi when he had a stomachache and Isumi gave him medicine (Tums in some translated versions). Isumi's reason behind this is because it worked when Waya had an exactly same case.
