Kim "Saint" Dong Hyun is a retired StarCraft progamer from South Korea who played Zerg for MBCGame HERO.

Biography[edit]

[1] Often forgotten in proteams are the 2v2 players, none so more than Kim Dong Hyun. In the 2005 player draft the team 'Pirates of Space' picked up two unbelievingly valuable additions to their team; Kim Dong Hyun and Yum Bo Sung (Sea[Shield]). The remainder of the year was uneventful for Dong Hyun but with a new proleague season just around the corner he was ready to shine.

In his first Proleague game for 2006 he played against the ZvZ God, Jo Yong Ho (Chojja), and was destroyed. However, in his first 2v2 game with his partner Moon Jun Hee (Junitoss) he scored a victory. But this success was short lived as the combination lost their next 2v2 encounter. Struggling to find his position in the team, he was used as MBCGame's Ace against rivals CJ Entus. Dong Hyun was victorious over Park Yeong Min (Much[gm]) and secured the victory for his team.

In an effort to find a suitable 2v2 combination, after trialling 6 combinations, coach Ha Tae Ki had a dilemma. The most successful team, the Park Sung Jun/Kim Taek Yong (July/Bisu), used up one of his deadliest 1v1 weapons, Park Sung Jun. He was in desperate need for a new, viable combination. Given Dong Hyun's various success in Proleague thus far, he tried a Dong Hyun/Taek Yong (Bisu) combination. This combination found success, and won the next 2 2v2 sets with ease before being stopped by CJ. The Dong Hyun/Taek Yong combination would be used throughout the remainder of the proleague season with great results and became the preferred PZ combination.

In the latter half of 2006, Taek Yong became a lethal 1v1 weapon, preforming extremely well in Shinhan 2 OSL. At the conclusion of the 2006 season, Taek Yong was being used primarily as a 1v1 weapon. Dong Hyun remained good friends with his ally, aiding him in practice whenever need be; most notably in Taek Yong's preparation for the GOM TV 1 MSL Finals against Ma Jae Yoon (sAviOr). Dong Hyun has also shown some valiant 1v1 efforts, very reminiscent of Park Sung Jun (JulyZerg), but has met limited success in individual league. However, he has managed to clench some crucial 1v1 games for his team.

In the 2007 proleague, Dong Hyun has not found another partner that he has worked that well with and team mate, Jung Yung Chul (TheZerg), has become the more successful 2v2 player in MBCGame Hero. Currently, Yung Chul plays Zerg in combination with Terran and Dong Hyun plays Zerg in combinatino with Protoss. Although Yung Chul is taking more of the 2v2 responsibility. Dong Hyun has also become captain of MBCGame Hero for the 2007 season after Park Ji Ho (PuSan) captained the team in 2006.

After six years of being a Progamer, Saint finally went through the Survivor and into the MSL for the 2009 Nate MSL. He advanced to the Ro16 as the 2nd from group C along with Flash.

He played Kal in the round of 16 in a split day format. He lost the series 0-2 in two rather one sided games knocking him out of the MSL.
