StarTale is the first Korean team to sign a foreign female pro-gamer, namely former War3 pro Yi Ying "MisS" Han, who is currently working as a host and caster for a Chinese gaming cable TV.
A TL.net translation of Thisisgame.com article reports that MisS' pro-gaming talent was discovered by StarTale's captain Rainbow, who attended the ZOWIE Divina female cup in November 2011 with the mission of not only supporting his girlfriend Aphrodite but to, apparently, also test and search for potential new members.
Lots of people told me that I am stupid for giving up my job as a TV hostess to become a computer player, but how often do you get a chance to follow your dream? When I got informed of this test to become a member of StarTale I was really nervous, just to get the opportunity is a dream come true. When I was told I could become a part of StarTale, it was the happiest day of my life, I still can’t believe it! I will do my best every day, in every game. This is my dream come true.
According to the same source, MisS is still on her job as a TV show host and caster but will start practicing full time in the next few months.
