Fresh off a nail-biting series defeat against sAviOr in the semi-finals the season before, Hwasin's worth as a player was higher than ever. Hwasin was the only terran player to reach the quarter-finals for both individual leagues, as well as being one of the five terran players to hit double digit number of victories in that particular season of the ProLeague. In fact, it could be argued that Hwasin was the only terran player to hit a high level across all three platforms of competition when Bisu mocked him for being his insurance.
Hwasin ended up being one game away from knocking out the eventual champion of GomTV MSL S2, and Daum OGN StarLeague. With the entire spectrum of terran players, whether young or old, struggling to establish clear domination over the other players, Hwasin continued to make his case for being the number one terran of early to mid 2007, by winning WCG 2007 Korea in the off-season.
In retrospect, Hwasin's prominence within the terran race at the time probably had more to do with the fact the terran race clearly lacked superstars in early to mid 2007, but Bisu's dismissal of Hwasin was memorable not just because Bisu backed up his words with results, but because it was targetted at a player who was literally at the zenith of his professional career.
