Koh "GuMiho" Byung Jae is a Terran (formerly Random) player from South Korea, currently playing for Invasion eSport.

Starcraft 2 career[edit]

2010[edit]

GuMiho's first major tournament was the 2010 GSL Open Season 3, where he participated as a Random player, making him the first (and to-date, only) Random player to compete in a GSL. He was eliminated 0-2 in the first round by Monster.

2011[edit]

GuMiho next qualified for the GSL for the 2011 July GSL Code A Tournament, at this time playing Terran full-time. He again fell in the first round, this time 1-2 to Ryung. GuMiho qualified for Code A a second time in the GSL October tournament, eventually reaching the semifinals and being promoted to Code S for the first time after succeeding in the Up/Down matches. In his first Code S season, GuMiho would reach the Round of 16 group stage before falling to Code A.

2012[edit]

GuMiho reached the semifinals of the first GSL season of 2012, losing to eventual champion DongRaeGu 2-3, his best individual result to-date.

GuMiho notably scored an all-kill in the 2012 Global StarCraft II Team League Season 2 finals for FXO against SlayerS-EG, defeating MMA, Min, CoCa, Ryung and Puzzle in succession to give FXO their first GSTL championship. In the following GSTL season, GuMiho would help FXO to a consecutive championship with a 3-kill in the final.

2013[edit]

GuMiho attended his first major international offline event in April at Dreamhack Stockholm, reaching the Round of 8.

Trivia[edit]

  • He played Random before switching to Terran full-time.
  • He is named after the Gumiho, a nine-tailed fox, which is a mythical creature in Korea.
  • He is the only player, to date, to play as Random in a GSL individual event.
  • He was nicknamed "Towel Terran" by Artosis during the GSL August qualifiers because he plays with a towel on his mouse, due to hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating of the hands).[1]
  • He is well known for posting on English-language Starcraft websites such as GosuGamers.net.[2]
  • He is the only player to have all-killed during a GSTL finals.
  • During his game against Zest at the 2014 Proleague Round 4 a part of the booth wall fell inward and hit him on the head.[3] After a short break, he won the game.
