Overview[edit]

The fourth GOMTV season marked Jaedong's second major victory after the EVER2007 OSL. Bisu had picked the upcoming Zerg player during the group selection and ended up playing only Zerg in his group. However, he crashed 0-2 and fell into a lengthy slump. The game on Blue Storm against Jaedong was an excellent match though.

The quarterfinals saw the first major meeting of the later bitter rivals Jaedong and Flash. This time, Jaedong took the series with a score of 3-1, performing his patented LWWW scoreline.
