“There’s one person I want to beat.”
The person responsible for introducing Boxer to Starcraft has been revealed. As odd as it sounds to have Boxer, the Emperor, wanting to beat someone so badly, Boxer has never won against this special friend.
Boxer, who is currently serving in the Air Force, told his story that was published on an article named ‘The Lim Yo-Hwan Intermission: The friend I could never beat.’ The article served as a tribute to his friend who has passed away.
The story begins in 1998, when Boxer was a senior in high school at the time. He had very poor grades due to spending most of his free time at the arcades or playing soccer.
When summer came, Boxer decided to meet his friend Kim Jin-Suk to learn mathematics. At least, that was his original intent.
Jin-Suk was playing a computer game at the time Boxer arrived. “Hold up, let me finish this game” said Jin-Suk. Boxer was immediately stunned by Starcraft’s graphics and the variety of units moving around. Boxer had thought that the arcades featured the finest games.
Boxer spent most of his summer at Jin-Suk’s house. Jin-Suk taught Boxer Protoss and Boxer played it until BroodWar was released.
Then came the PC Bang Era, at which point PC bangs started appearing all over the country. Boxer and Jin-Suk played each other a number of times but Boxer could not take a single game from him. By the time Boxer was no longer a newbie, news came that Jin-Suk had past away. The two friends would never get a chance to play.
Boxer considers meeting Jin-Suk a pivotal point of his life. It may explain Boxer’s widely known passion for the game.

The reason I'm posting more often these days is because I'm bored out of my mind here at work. But if I play BW, I'll probably get smacked in the head. So I visit sites like TL which don't blow my cover so easily
