Seol "PokJu" Hyun Ho is a retired StarCraft progamer from South Korea who played Protoss for Hanbit Stars.
Picked up in the 2005 draft by Hanbit Stars, Seol Hyun Ho would struggle with his struggling team. the 2005 season was not very good for HanbitStars, nor Hyun Ho who attained a 0% winrate going 0-3. However, his games showed potential especially considering his age. Against his match with Lee Yoon Yeol (NaDa) in proleague he attained a large advantage, before Yoon Yeol staging quite an impressive comeback. The potential in this young player was very evident.
Nevertheless he struggled on, aiding his team where he could and he became an extremely valued practice partner. Not only for his team, but the fabled 'God of War' Park Sung Jun (Julyzerg):
You're the first to advance to the semifinals this season:
"Advancing to the semis feels great every time. But this time my emotions are very high, because I have a clear goal. I would like to thank SauL[gm] of eNature, and free[gm], PokJu[S.G] of Hanbit for helping me practice. We praticed a lot for this match. I even played a 50-minute marathon past midnight. Those three players have gotten much better. Watch out for them this year." - Park Sung Jun
Hyun Ho would not reach the level of excellence his teammate Yoon Yong Tae (free[gm]) would in 2006, but he developed a strong macro at least equal that of Yoon Tae.
In MBC Movies 10th Survivor League, Hyun Ho demonstrated some of the potential that had been observed in the prior year. He opened by demolishing Lee Yoon Yeol with super aggressive play, only to lose on the incredibly imbalanced PvT map Desert FoX to Ku Sung Hoon (HiyA[fOu]). Then showed some incredible macro against Lee Yoon Yeol in the final set, but unfortunately his micro was not up to par and Yoon Yeol lived through the masses of units and sent his metal armies to victory.
In 2007, Hyun Ho only played in proleague; with disappointing results. Sporting yet another 0% winrate going 0-3 and a career record of 1-11 (8.33% winrate). After an embarrassing defeat to Bisu, who proxy gated inside Pokju's mineral line, Pokju retired from professional StarCraft.
