Jung "FanTaSy" Myung Hoon is a StarCraft progamer from South Korea. He plays Terran and is currently playing for the team Dead Pixels.
FanTaSy made a name for himself as one of the best Terran players of the last seasons of the Brood War scene, and won the 2010 Bacchus OSL. He also made it to the last two OSL Finals, in each of which he was defeated by Jangbi. He has transitioned well into Starcraft 2; whilst his Proleague performance in 2013 has been a little underwhelming, he qualified for the first Heart of the Swarm Code S, and went out showing very impressive games against TRUE and TaeJa.
Wings of Liberty
FanTaSy played his first SC2 official match during the hybrid 2011-2012 Proleague Season 2. FanTaSy was one of the eight KeSPA-affiliated players to be sent to the KeSPA exhibition match at the 2012 MLG Spring Championship. He was knocked out in the quarterfinals 0-2 by Soulkey.
FanTaSy used a previously unseen build in professional SC2 with a build order that began to be called the FanTaSy Build[Citation needed]. This BO was also used by Mvp at HomeStory Cup V.[Citation needed]
FanTaSy made it through the Code A qualifiers of the last GSL season in 2012 to make it into Code A. He beat SuHoSin in the final round of the qualifiers with a score of 2-1 to make it. In Code A he reached the final round before losing to RorO, falling to the Up and Down matches. There he went 2-3 and ended fourth in the group to drop back to Code A.
In GSL 2013 Season 1, he was again unable to pass Code A, defeating Zenio but losing to Shine from Team MVP. In the Up and Down matches, he was able to qualify for the Premier League of the first season of WCS 2013 Korea by going 4-1 in his group.
Heart of the Swarm
In the first GSL using the new expansion Heart of the Swarm, FanTaSy was seeded into the Up and Down stage due to his Code A run in last season's GSL. He was seeded into Group C with Maru, KeeN, NesTea and HerO. He finished second and advanced beating KeeN, NesTea, losing to Maru and finally beating HerO. In Code S, he was placed in Group D with TaeJa, Losira and TRUE. He was knocked out in last place losing 1-2 to TaeJa and 1-2 to TRUE, thus he was sent back down to Challenger. In the second bracket, he played Solar whom he beat 2-1, and Avenge who knocked him out of GSL Season 1 with the score of 1-2.
In Season 2 of the OSL, FanTaSy had to play in an Up and Down group to be able to advance to Premier League. He was placed in Group B with Savage, Trust, YoDa and Golden. He advanced in first place winning over YoDa, Trust and Golden. In Premier, he was placed in Group E with Losira, JangBi and Life. He advanced in first place winning over Life and JangBi in the best-of-one series. In the round of 16, FanTaSy was placed in Group C with Rain, First and Hyvaa. Unfortunately, he was knocked out in last place losing 0-2 to First, 1-2 to Hyvaa and 0-2 to Rain. With this loss, he was sent back to Challenger to fight for his Premier League spot. He was matched up against Dream, a Terran, and lost 0-2. With this loss, he would have to compete in the Up and Down bracket following season.
In the Up and Down bracket of GSL Season 3, FanTaSy was placed in Group D with DongRaeGu, Trap, Squirtle and YugiOh. He went 1-3 in matches and was sent down to Challenger, his only win was against YugiOh. In the first bracket of Challenger League he played against Mekia, aka Impact, and was able to win 1-2. Next, he played RagnaroK and won, but this time with a score of 2-0. Finally he played against Sleep who came down from Premier who he was able to defeat 2-1 and was sent up to Premier League for the following season.
In Season 2 of the 2014 GSL, FanTaSy achieved a similar result, falling in a group stage. Although he placed third in his group, it was a Code A, not Code S. He went 1-2 against MyuNgSiK, beat eMotion 2-0 then lost 1-2 to Leenock.
