Lunatic-hai is no more

The South Korean organization Lunatic-hai folds after three years on the scene.

The team will see MinWoo "cliper" Choi, YoungMo "enemy" Ahn and Minsu "glow" Kim to serve Korean military service starting from July 2009. The team would be left with just two players, but with not sponsors around, the organization now disbands.

The team entered the scene in 2005 and already that year showed great play, by finishing second at CPL Winter, after a loss to SK Gaming in the grand final.


The team attended Extreme Masters III Continental Finals Korea, where a second place secured them a slot at the Extreme Masters III Continental Finals Asia, the team did however cancel their attendance.

Lunatic-hai was:

Korea BeumHo "mal" Cho
Korea YoungMo "enemy" Ahn
Korea MinWoo "cliper" Choi
Korea MinSoo "glow" Kim
Korea Yoo "Okju" Okju

The organization blame the Korean market to focus too much on StarCraft and it would also not be profitable enough in the future. With Lunatic-hai no more, South Korea have now lost a big name and it is just WeMade FOX left to represent the national colours when fighting the Europeans and Americans. 
Sad news. :(
