Woongjin Stars (웅진스타즈) was a former Korean StarCraft professional team that disbanded in 2013 after a brief transition to Starcraft II.[1]

Overview[edit]

The team formed in Busan as a guild/clan under the name StarCraft Mania.[2] It was composed of entirely Busan-based progamers with the earliest members being head coach Lee Jae-kyun, team captain H.O.T-Forever, S.E.S, FlyToTheSky, GARIMTO, Reach and Kingdom.[3][4] Shortly after moving to Seoul, the future legends H.O.T-Forever, GARIMTO, Kingdom and later Reach all posted very strong performances which made Hanbit decide to sponsor the team.[5][6] In May 2001 under the name of Hanbit Stars, they went on to foster talents such as Autumn, Sync, Control, Junwi, Clon and Sunny which helped them win the 2004 SKY Proleague Round 1 and 2004 SKY Proleague Grand Final.[7] In May 2008 Hanbit Soft decided to sell the team due to financial difficulties.[8] Woongjin started sponsoring the team in September 2008 changing their name to Woongjin Stars where they kept on producing strong players in GGPlay, ZerO, Free and Soulkey but were unable to reach another BW Proleague finals.[9]

With Woongjin group declaring bankruptcy in September 2012,[10] there was speculation among the community whether this means the end of Woongjin Stars due to previous teams such as eSTRO and Team 8 having problems finding sponsors. Despite some reassurances that they will not disband after having waived most of their player roster on October 2013,[11] the team would eventually disband two months later on December 2013.[12]

[edit]

  • Hanbitsoft, the Korean Starcraft distributer was the original sponsor.
  • Woongjin, a major Korean manufacturer of chemicals was the latest sponsor.
