Cho "Maru" Sung Choo is a Terran player from South Korea, who is currently playing for Prime. He is well known for being the youngest GSL player of all time, winning his first televised game at the age of 13.
Maru made his professional debut in the very first GSL, the 2010 TG Sambo Intel Starcraft II Open Season 1. There, he defeated fan favorite Cella 2-1  to advance to the Ro32, where he lost 0-2 to San. The series against San would be Maru's last games in the GSL for almost a year; he did not qualify for Code A until GSL August, where he fell 0-2 to Fruitdealer in the Round of 32. Maru's attempts to qualify for GSL October and GSL November also failed, though the single game he took off of Curious during the October preliminaries was Curious's only loss that season.
2012 proved a much better year for Maru. He started out the year strong, qualifying for Code A in the 2012 GSL Season 1 preliminaries and defeating Noblesse and Yeah in the process. His first match in the Ro48 was a 2-0 win against favored opponent MorroW. Then, in the Ro32, he managed to beat Happy 2-1 before dropping to NaDa 2-0 in the Ro24. The loss sent him to the Up and Down matches, where he showed that he had the skill of a Code S player by defeating sC, Terius, Alicia, and JYP to earn a Code S spot.
Maru entered his first Code S tournament, 2012 GSL Season 2, in a group with GuMiho, Curious, and HerO. Despite low expectations, he defeated GuMiho and HerO to earn first in the group and move on to the Ro16. There, he defeated MC 2-1, but then lost to Squirtle 0-2 and Oz 1-2 to finish third in his group. He now faces Creator in the Ro24 of Code A.
In addition to his GSL success, Maru has also done remarkably well in the 2012 KSL team league Season 1, where he currently has a 12-3 record, including an all-kill of team StarTale.
 Outside Korea
Maru has played in one foreign tournament so far: the IPL 4. IGN awarded him a spot in the Open Bracket because his team, Prime, was playing in the GSTL finals, which were also hosted at IPL 4. Maru's performance was not especially strong, however; he only defeated CatZ and Illusion before falling 0-2 to TaeJa and 1-2 to Virus.
