Shin "Hydra" Dong Won is a Zerg player from South Korea who is currently playing for ROOT Gaming.
Hydra's crowning achievement in the Brood War era was his victory in the PDPop MSL in 2011.
Wings of Liberty
Heart of the Swarm
Hydra joined ROOT Gaming on September 24, 2014. Due to acquiring a visa, Hydra is able to participate in WCS. In 2015 WCS Season 1 he reached the finals but ultimately fell short 3-4 against Polt. Unfazed by the defeat, Hydra returned to the finals in 2015 WCS Season 2, beat Lilbow 4-2 and, at last, became a champion.
Legacy of the Void
Hydra qualified for the 2016 WCS Global Playoffs and Finals but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts with his wedding. Subsequently, Hydra announced that he would be retiring as he is doing his military service at the end of the year.
