Kevin "qxc" Riley, the American Terran from Root Gaming who placed second at the IEM American Championships in New York among other notable results, has written an application for the GSL foreigner house in Seoul, Korea.

Several hours ago on Twitter, QXC wrote that he had submitted the application and that 'the cogs are turning'. Although Riley is temporarily living in Spain, it seems that the American's plan is to play StarCraft full-time in Korea once his education at Harvey Mudd is complete. At the very least, he is attempting to expand his horizons this upcoming summer. I am currently reaching out to qxc for comment and clarification on his intent.

qxc will not be able to compete in the upcoming season and it is unclear when exactly he hopes to participate in the GSL.

Currently, the foreigner house is occupied by players such as Spades, Moonglade and Torch. Judging by the fact that the house is still without PCs for its players and that they must go to net cafes to practice, the foreigner house is very much a work-in-progress.

Nonetheless, there is a steady stream of interest from top foreigners. Most notably, IEM Europe champion Sjow recently applied for the house. The two Terrans are a couple of high profile potential additions that will only boost the notoriety that the GSL receives abroad. The foreigner market has played a significant role in GSL's success and looks to continue along that path as more top players from the West consider Korea as a serious option.
