Former pro gamer Hong Jin Ho (aka "YellOw," pictured) has been spending his retirement as a Korean TV star. Today, however, it was announced that Hong is coming back to the StarCraft: Brood War eSports arena. Good news, indeed!
According to Naver (via tipster Sang), GomTV is revising the StarCraft 1 eSport tournament in what it's calling "GomTV Classic Season 4." Think of it as the pro gaming equivalent of the PGA Senior Tour, perhaps?
This might be a one-off type tournament, but long-time StarCraft fans should enjoy watching Hong return to the scene.
