Why are Koreans so good at Shaco?


Everyone knows that Shaco has a special place deep within the hearts of Koreans. Some say that it's a deep ancestral calling, while others say that it was a gift bestowed on them from above. Regardless of the true nature of their affinity with the masked clown, the mystery remains: Is this fact or mere myth?

Let's start off with some some choice quotes from the forums:
"all koreans are master shaco players, it's a right of passage to becoming a man in korean society" - StanIey0506

"Korean shacos are not good because they team fight. They are good precisely because they dont. If I ever teamfight vs an opposing shacos team, they will run and tower hug while shaco destroys another one of our turrets. He pretty much forces 1v1s, 2v2s, and 3v3s, all the while avoiding 5v5s like the plague. It is extremely hard to fight against, and shaco can almost always 1v1 any champ you send to deal with him."- TooPro4u

Is Your Shaco Korean? 

So how do you know if you're fighting a Korean Shaco player? Generally, if one or more of the following are true, it's likely that you're not about to face any simple Shaco player, but one from the darkest depths of your nightmares...
  • Every time you engage the enemy champion you suddenly feel a sharp pain in your back;
  • Whenever you start your buff you have this strong feeling you should probably use your sweeper; 
  • You used your sweeper and you still got ganked and killed;
  • Every time you "kill" Shaco he blows up and you get no gold;
  • Every time you start a team fight mid you hear "Your Inhibitor Has Been Destroyed"; 
  • The only english word you see them type is "lag"; and
  • ▯▯▯▯▯ ▯▯▯ huehue...
In all seriousness, if you've ever had a chance to play with a Korean shaco be sure to guard his boxes with your life and swap his broken English-speaking little butt Shaco if you're first pick. You're almost guaranteed to see some magic happen around levels 1~4.

Red Shacos will gank you early and you'll probably flash or die.

Blue Shacos will gank you a little later and you'll probably just simply die.

Korean Shacos will be wherever you don't think he is, have 10 boxes in a bush on the opposite side of the map, and whenever you kill him it's always going to be his clone.

Locodoco Explains...

With his rapid ganks, counter-jungling, and superior dragon/baron control, a clutch Shaco player is an unstoppable force in the right hands.

As for WHY Koreans specifically love playing Shaco so much, I've come to the conclusion that it must run in their blood...
