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

Starcraft 2 career

2010

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

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

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

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

Trivia

  • He played Random before switching to Terran full-time.
  • His ID Gumiho (alternately, kumiho) is the name of the Korean mystical nine-tailed fox (the Korean equivalent of the Japanese kitsune and the Chinese hui jing.)
  • 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.
