Video gaming is a big, big deal in South Korea, and "ElkY" was one of its biggest stars, according to Poker King.  His total career tournament winnings exceed $5.7 million and this does not include what he has won online.  Grospellier would be a real hit for viewers if he were to make it to the Final Table of Nine in the 2009 World Series of Poker.
