Shin-seok Kim, also known as the Eight of Spades, is a member of the Korean People's Army Elite Special Forces during Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction.

ExOps bio[]

Name: Shin-seok Kim
"Before she joined Song's elite squad, Shin-seok was a "comfort woman," a highly sought after prostitute. The circumstances surrounding her departure from that career and volunteering for Song's special forces squad are not well known, though speculation abounds."


Kim can be found along the border of China and the Northern Province of North Korea, along with the Hearts, but she and the other Spades can only be verified after the Ace of Hearts contract has been completed.

Her exact location is north-east of the Chinese HQ in Dandong, next to the river; just outside of North Korea.

Shin-seok Kim is protected by several NK Elites with Light MGs and anti-air weapons, two ZSU-57 Anti-Air vehicles, and two NK Elites over-looking her position. There are up to four Mi-35 Gunships patrolling the skies over and near the number card. On top of a nearby hill there are also three ZSU-57s nearby along with several NK Elites, two of which have SAM launchers.

Attempting to assault her position utilising an undisguised North Korean helicopter, especially one with insufficient firepower to take down the 4 gunships and the 2 anti-air tanks will likely result in death or several attempts. It's likely to reach her completely without using a helicopter, although, it might take a few attempts to do so successfully.

Subject: Shin-seok Kim, the 8 of Spades
I don't know why, but I'm especially fascinated by the idea of an all-female elite forces squad. Shin-seok Kim, the 8 of Spades was a prostitute before she was recruited to join Chong's special forces division. According to Allied intelligence, she's hiding out in China, just east of Dandong. If you take her alive, let me know what she's like!
