Kim "Jila" Ku Hyun, also known as "Kal", is a retired StarCraft progamer from South Korea.[1]

Biography[edit]

GooJila, who was known as Kal during his Brood War career, was drafted by STX SouL in 2006 and has been a regular on their Proleague lineup since 2007, commonly playing as the team’s ace. Kal didn’t really burst into fame though until 2008 when he reached the finals of the GOMTV MSL Season 4, which he lost to Jaedong 1-3.

Wings of Liberty[edit]

GooJila played his first official StarCraft II match during the hybrid 2011-2012 Proleague Season 2, as he was defeated by Stats when Air Force ACE faced KT Rolster on May 22.

Heart of the Swarm[edit]

On October 31, 2013, GooJila finished his military service and joined Prime.[2]

Trivia[edit]

  • During his Brood War career, Kal was nicknamed "The Red Shuttle" due to his constant and daring Shuttle use in games. (The heavy use of a Shuttle during a game would commonly end with the Shuttle on low HP, thus showing up red in the HUD).
  • GooJila was one of the Six Protoss Dragons in Brood War, title which was given to the top six Protoss players that dominated the scene from November 2008 to March 2009.
