Song "Dove" Ho Hyung is a StarCraft progamer from South Korea who played Terran for SK Telecom T1. After leaving the progaming scene, Dove participated in Korean amateur leagues including the SonicTV BJ Starleague. He was one of the first Korean ex-progamers to stream for the foreign audience.

Dove is currently inactive and focusing on his studies.

Biography[edit]

Dove decided to have a go at progaming in his junior year of high school. After beating s2 and BeSt, online practice partners at the time, in the Courage tournament, Dove obtained his progamer licence, dropped out of high school and joined SK Telecom T1 in 2006. Without any significant achievement, he left the progaming scene in 2010.

Facts[edit]

  • Dove's favorite match-up is TvZ and he prefers to use a bionic force in the SK Terran style.
  • He played three showmatches for GosuGamers. [1]
  • In December 2011, Dove began streaming on Twitch.TV and quickly endeared the TeamLiquid community with his humble and downright personality. [2]

Trivia[edit]
