Hite SPARKYZ was a Korean StarCraft professional team that disbanded after its merge with CJ Entus.
- Created in October 2000 under the name of KOR
- Changed name to OnGameNet SPARKYZ on May 29, 2006
- Changed name to Hite SPARKYZ in April 2009
- On October 12, 2010 Hite SPARKYZ announced that they would merge with CJ Entus to form the new proleague team Hite Entus.
Hite SPARKYZ, previously OnGameNet Sparkyz and founded as KOR in 2000, was one of the oldest StarCraft teams in South Korea. KOR won the 2004-2005 SKY Proleague Round 3 and came in 3rd place overall in the SKY 2004 Proleague Grand Final behind strong performances from Zeus, ClouD, Casy, and their 2v2 team of Eji and Side. Their lineup grew to feature Max, Luxury, YellOw[ArnC], Chalrenge, Leta, go.go, and Justin. The OGN SPARKYZ finished 2nd in the 2008 Shinhan Bank Proleague with a strong showing from these players. Despite their trade of Luxury to KTF after he won the MSL, they continued to post good results in the 2009 Bacchus OSL, when all 4 players on one side of the quarterfinal bracket were from Hite (Yarnc, Leta, go.go, and type-b), ensuring that one of them (Yarnc) would make the final. However, disaster struck in the winter of 2009-2010 as the Match Fixing Scandal was uncovered, implicating Justin as a ringleader and reducing Hite to a skeleton of its former glory. Prior to their merge with CJ Entus, Hite's proleague team was led by Leta, Horang2, and Hogil.
The sponsor for this team was the Korean broadcasting channel OnGameNet or OGN. The naming rights to the team were sold to the Korean 'Hite' Beer company the 6th of April, 2009, renaming the team 'OnGameNet Sparkyz' to 'Hite Sparkyz' from the 11th of April, 2009.
- Hite also had a Special Forces team in addition to their StarCraft team.
- Hite was the team most affected by the Match Fixing Scandal, since Justin was one of the ringleaders of said scandal. Additional former Hite players banned due to the match fixing scandal include go.go, darkelf, type-b, YellOw(ArnC), luxury, and by.1st.
