Actress Kim Ga-yeon, wife of the legendary StarCraft pro Lim 'BoxeR' Yo-hwan, recently revealed how much money she spent on the team SlayerS - one of the most legendary StarCraft II teams back in Wings of Liberty.
“I’ve bought all of the computer equipment for Yo-hwan before our marriage,” she said to Korean talk show hosts on My Daily. “One training facility and one house. It cost me around 500 million won. It was because they needed a place to practice. It wasn’t an investment, but rather, the best I could do for a person that I love.”
500 million won is about $447,000 USD - quite the chunk of change to have spent on StarCraft. While the game may not have gone on to be quite as successful as some of its fans have hoped, it was a fitting gift to the Brood War legend, who just wanted one last hurrah in the new title.
