Shin "hyvaa" Dae Kun is a StarCraft progamer from South Korea who played Zerg for STX SouL.
He currently plays Zerg in StarCraft II and is teamless.
After moderate success in the Minor League, Hyvaa became a regular on the eSTRO lineup by May 2008. Hyvaa performed moderately until the Shinhan Winners League, where he performed exceptionally well. At that time Hyvaa became the star player of eSTRO, performing better than anyone else on the team and actually being statistically one of the best players in Winners League. Afterwards however, Hyvaa went back to mediocrity. He reached the Bacchus OSL 2009 Ro36 but was eliminated by Hwasin in the 2nd round. Hyvaa failed to perform as well since the end of Winners League.
Hyvaa finished Round 1 of the 09-10 Proleague with weak result of 4 wins and 8 losses. Hyvaa played in two ace matches in the first round, winning 1 and losing 1. While Hyvaa qualified for the 2009 Nate MSL, he was knocked out in the round of 32 with stats of 0-2, losing to Flash and Iris. In Round two of the proleague, Hyvaa was played less frequently and scored 1 win and 3 losses giving him a 5-11 record going into Winner's league.
- Hyvaa is known for generally using strategic and smart play, most against Terran; for example, he once used ensnare against Flash on Andromeda.
- hyvä(ä) means "good" in Finnish, the name came from a Korean gum (휘바) commercial.
- eSTRO picks Protoss-Zerg and Sparkyz get lucky with Yarnc randoming Zerg. In an epic 2v2 of the ages, eSTRO takes down Sparkyz and play Hunters the way it is normally played on Battle.net, with players building up large armies as opposed to the Korean style of just massing ground units. This also is one of the few teams a Zerg-Zerg 2v2 team lost.
