Trivia[edit]

  • Lost without winning a single game on their SC2 debut against SK Telecom T1.
  • Members of the team, most notably sOs (on the tail fin) are featured on one of Jin Air's jets - specifically, a Boeing 737-800 that flies between Gimpo and Jeju.[34][35][36]
  • When Proleague discontinued, after having runned from 2005-2016, all other Kespa teams than Jin Air Green Wings closed down their doors, but Jin Air Green Wings promised to continue supporting the Korean Starcraft 2 scene, they also sponsored SSL Season 1 and 2 of 2017.
