Park "ForGG" Ji Soo is the subject for the 10th episode of my 'Grilled' interview feature. Millenium's Korean Terran is most famous for his time as a BW pro in South Korea, and the eventual runner-up of Dreamhack Open Valencia talks about his past and transition to SC2 competition.
How did him and Jaedong being team-mates affect the outcome of their finals match-up in the Arena MSL of 2008? Is Flash the best BW player ever? How do Korean BW team houses compare to those in SC2? Why did ForGG develop his style of timing attack play? Which Korean BW player, who wasn't a star, does he think can be a top SC2 player? Now he plays for a foreign team, will ForGG become more extravagant and perform ceremonies etc.? Why did his results dip after his initial entry into SC2?
