Kang Min (강민) a.k.a. Nal_rA (born March 15, 1982) is a professional South Korean StarCraft player (Protoss, KTF MagicNs). Kang Min is famous for his effective execution of surprising, high risk/high reward strategies, which has earned him the nickname "Dreamer".
The 'Dreaming Protoss' is often considered to be a Protoss version of Boxer due to his highly creative and daring play. He frequently hides his buildings in other parts of the map and pioneered and standardized several notable Protoss strategies such as fast expanding and using corsairs and reavers in tandem against Zerg. He won an OSL and MSL in the same season and does exceptionally well in team tournaments, playing for KTF. He has won the Blizzard WorldWide Invitational tournament during early 2006. He has recently recovered from a severe slump; as a result, he has qualified for ShinHan Bank 2 OSL and made it to the Pringles MSL finals by defeating Kingdom, only to lose 3-1 to sAviOr. He also made it to the Semi-Finals of the subsequent Pringles 2 MSL, only to lose again at the hands of sAviOr. Nal_ra is currently in a severe slump as he went 1-7 in the 2nd half of Shinhan Proleague 2007. He dropped out of MSL after losing to Xellos in the quarter finals of MSL season 3 and has yet to recover.
On 11th September 2008, Kang Min declared that he is going to retire from progaming. According to www.scforall.com he felt that he was not anymore able to meet the expectations of his fans regarding his performance in progaming Starcraft games and that he intends to be a professional Starcraft commentator in the future.
