Kim "Shuttle" Yoon Joong is a former StarCraft progamer from South Korea who played Protoss for STX SouL. He retired from StarCraft II on 21 September 2012 in order to fulfill his mandatory military service and currently plays in amateur leagues. [1]


Yoon Joong started playing Starcraft because he wanted to beat his seatmate. Eventually he improved enough to become the best in his city, enabling him to win about $300 in a middle school tournament. This led to his father accepting his career path as progamer.[2]

Shuttle has had a few scattered Proleague appearances on his team since the Shinhan Bank Proleague 2007. He is often overshadowed by his Protoss teammate Kal, who has had much more success than Yoonjoong and has appeared on his team’s lineup much more. Yoonjoong is perhaps most famous for his success in the TG-Intel Classic Season 1, where he defeated Violet and longtime Starleague veterans XellOs and fOrGG before losing to eventual tournament winner Jaedong in the semifinals. Since the TG-Intel Classic Season 1 though, he has yet to achieve much else. He has continued to have infrequent Proleague appearances, but has recently reached the Ro8 in the Averatec-Intel Classic Season 3 as well as make it to the Ro36 in the Bacchus Starleague 2009 before losing to Flash in the final set.

Shuttle is one of the most popular streaming broadcast jockeys, or BJs, on Afreeca, playing on the Fish server.[3]


  • Kim Yoon Joong has an extremely good PvP record despite a small set of games played over his career at 22-11 (66.7%, April 2010), which includes wins over JangBi, Violet, BeSt, and Stork.
  • His ID Eyewater is a literal translation of the English word "tears".
  • has several nicknames in the Korean scene. For example he is named: [4]
    • "Elsa Toss" because of his usage of Stasis Field
    • "Mole Toss" because of his prominent mole on his face
    • "Star Dragon" because of the amount of donations (Star Ballons) he gets on AfreecaTV
    • "The Monstrous Progeny of Capitalism" because he would always play much better when prize money was on the line
