Kim ‘viOLet’ Dong Hwan is a Zerg player from South Korea.

viOLet has a history as a WarCraft III pro gamer and since moving to StarCraft II, has lived in the US for most of his time. His first major championship came in IEM Season 6 at Sao Paulo, but what cemented him as a top level progamers were his finishes in the middle and end of 2012 as he won the MLG Spring Arena 2 and finished top 4 at IEM Season VII – Cologne, and then back-to-back runner up performances in NASL Season 4 and IPL5.

viOLet overcame issues with playing in WCS America by acquiring his P-1 visa from the United States government, a document that legally recognizes him as a professional athlete – he was the first StarCraft II player ever to receive such a recognition.

In 2016 viOLet was consistently placing either 9th-12th to 3rd-4th in most major tournaments and earning just enough points in The WCS Circuit to tie with Elazer for the Global Finals cutoff. Though, before a tie-breaking match could be held Hydra unfortunately had to forfeit his seeding allowing both Elazer and viOLet to participate in The 2016 Global Playoffs at BlizzCon.
