Park "Junwi" Gyung Lak was a retired StarCraft progamer from South Korea who played Zerg for Woongjin Stars.

On July 30, 2019, he passed away.[1]

Biography[edit]

[2] Known as the Terran Killer, in his first match, Junwi did not demonstrate his name, losing to ChRh on Emperor of Emperor in a ghemTV game. After this, he would go on demolition, qualifying for both the Panasonic OSL and WCG 2002. In the WCG he lost to fellow Korean StarCraft player Oddysay in the round of 16 and was thus moved to the losers' group where he lost to ElkY after first defeating Ukrainian player VoGGNirvana.[3]

After bowing out in the ghemTV Starleague semifinals to H.O.T-Forever 3-2, he had his sights on the OSL ahead of him.

Although being invited to participate in the 4th KPGA Tour, he showed no signs of fatigue, demolishing known TvZ specialists in BoxeR, XellOs and Sync. Unfortunately Sync would get his revenge in the OSL, but with a 2-1 record, he would go onto the round of 8, where he comfortably made it to the semifinals, only to be knocked out by Chojja in 5 nail-biting games.

Junwi went on to place 4th, and had his sights on the next OSL, Olympus. Unfortunately, he drew the worst group he could probably get, with the likes of fOru, BoxeR, and NaDa. Junwi lost to BoxeR, but he managed to defeat fOru and NaDa, escaping from an extremely tough group 2-1. He made it to the semifinals where he lost to YellOw 3-0 and came 4th again.

It seemed that it would be a groundhog day for Junwi, as again, he breezed through the next OSL, MyCube, quite easily, to eventually make it to the semifinals again, where he would meet with the eventual winner, Kingdom. Unfortunately due to the poor maps that season, he would lose 3-0 in the semifinals, but would win the 3rd/4th place match against Reach 3-2, whom he was about to transfer to KTF.

Between this and the next OSL, he participated in many teamleague games for Hanbit, as well as the KT-KTF Premiere League. In the next OSL, NHN, he REMOVE stop his streak of semi-final runs, losing in the Round of 8. After this, it hasn't been the same for Junwi. Besides a 4 game winning streak during the SKY Proleague, he went on to lose most of his matches, whether it would be qualifiers, teamleagues or proleagues. Albeit the Terran Killer he once was, he hasn't been able to adapt to the macro-style playstyles that many Terrans use these days.

His last attempt to make another starleague was foiled, as he unconvincingly lost both games in OGN Starchallenge League. Junwi's career is over and has since retired.
