Heon Woo Kim aka Wing, saw b-boying, for the first time, in his junior high school and on korean TV as well. He was just 12 years old when he started break dancing with his older brother, Skim, his biggest influence in the world. Wing used to watch Skim practice and tried to learn every step his brother made. Together, they won the 2008 Circle Kingz battle, in Switzerland, and the 2008 RED BULL BC ONE, in Paris. Now, they are both in the same crew, Jinjo Crew, which they consider their second family. Jinjo Crew signed a contract with LG Mobiles so they could perform around the world. Wing is a complexed b-boy dancer, he likes to create patterns of movements with a lot of details and even incorporates difficult choreographies and their flow to his dance moves, while featuring elements from B-Boying, such as footwork. The name WING comes from his mentors, it was inspired by the lightness of his hardcore moves. Even though Wing is a very well known B-Boy, he has concerns about B-Boying in Korea, he sees it as a hardworking job, where you have to work every single day to make it perfect. His goal is proving to adults and elders that B-Boying isn’t a bad thing. He wants to be a proper rolemodel because he believes that his message of mutual love and respect for each other would be well given. Wing also won, as a solo, RED BULL BC ONE Championship.
