No. It's not. But it's self-proclaimed national sport.

Putting Starcraft the video game in the books is just a little silly.

I am half-Korean and I've been to Korea recently. Watching TV, I see they have a Starcraft channel that shows on TV daily. It is big there, but I think nearly every Blizzard product is.

When I went into a Computer Cafe, which is common in Korea as a 7-11, I saw that they had various games played by people. I saw Diablo 2, WoW, and Starcraft. So it appears Blizzard products are extremely popular among the Korean crowd.

However, that's where it ends. I didn't see anything with Starcraft as an actual national sports, but I think it's like what one guy said that it's a self-proclaimed national sports because nothing else is really big over there except soccer.

Yeap. Although I went to the Wikipedia page and at one point it was edited to Starcraft >_>
