“ByuN” Hyun Woo, formerly known as “GhostKing“, is a Terran player from South Korea.
Early in his pro gaming career ByuN had relative success participating in GSTL and various tournaments from 2011 – 2012, but with the release of Heart of the Swarm ByuN struggled in his tournament play. Eventually near the end of 2013 he stopped participating in major tournaments and it was assumed he had retired from the pro gaming scene.
Though, in 2015 he began participating in various smaller tournaments eventually earning himself a name as one of the strongest players of the LotV Beta. His success continued to grow and that December he qualified for Season 1 of SSL 2016, marking his first appearance at a premiere tournament in over two years, and all without a team.
Later in 2016 he qualified and participated in GSL Season 2 and eventually took the first place prize becoming the first player to win a GSL championship with out a team as well as securing his place at the 2016 WCS Global Playoffs at BlizzCon. Then at BlizzCon ByuN only lost one match up against ShoWTimE in the Round of 16 groups. His lost to ShoWTimE seemed to only motivate him further pushing him to the Grand Finals where he faced off against Dark winning 4:2 and becoming the 2016 WCS Champion.
