Shin "Hydra" Dong-won (born September 4, 1991) is a retired Korean Zerg player who last played for ROOT Gaming.

Biography[edit]

Hydra's crowning achievement in the Brood War era was his victory in the PDPop MSL in 2011.

Wings of Liberty[edit]

Hydra lost his first official StarCraft II match during the hybrid 2011-2012 Proleague Season 2 against Trap.[1]

Heart of the Swarm[edit]

Hydra joined ROOT Gaming on September 24, 2014.[2] Due to acquiring a visa, Hydra is able to participate in WCS. In 2015 WCS Season 1 he reached the finals but ultimately fell short 3-4 against Polt. Unfazed by the defeat, Hydra returned to the finals in 2015 WCS Season 2, beat Lilbow 4-2 and, at last, became a champion.

Legacy of the Void[edit]

Hydra qualified for the 2016 WCS Global Playoffs and Finals but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts with his wedding.[3] Subsequently, Hydra announced that he would be retiring as he is doing his military service at the end of the year.[4]
