Overview[edit]
Overview

Lore:Kum Haehyun is the descendant of a family of Tuners, who are known to have great knowledge of Ki energy. Haehyun visualizes Ki energy as the strings of musical instruments. As an old friend of Faust's she assisted with diagnosing and treating the Japanese Colony when its people all fell ill with a mysterious illness. Because her family does not allow women to hold positions of power, she controls a robot with the form of an imposing eldery master known as Kum Jonryoku. Very few people know her true identity.

Playstyle
GGXRD-R2 Kum Haehyun Icon.png Kum Haehyun is a slow, balanced character with access to powerful okizeme and straightforward special moves. Kum isn't a neutral monster, but her sheer damage output and loopable setplay can turn any opening into a round win.
Pros Cons
  • Simple Neutral: Intuitive neutral pokes.
  • Pressure God(ess?): Strong, easy to use pressure and frame trap tools.
  • Lots o' Damage: Extremely high damage potential. 60%+ from a single combo is not uncommon.
  • Mixups: Consistent 50/50 mixups on knockdown using Tuning Ball.
  • Mash-Happy Kum's 2P jab is absurdly good for mashing out of pressure.
  • Controller: Can manipulate her projectiles, her air momentum, and even her opponent's position.
  • Tanky: Very high effective health.
  • Large Body: Large hurtbox means she can be easily harassed by zoners, is vunerable to more damaging combos, and cannot backdash well.
  • Mediocre Defense: Lackluster defensive options. Her DP is not full body invulnerable.
  • Mediocre Mobility: Aside from her divekick, Kum has slow and linear movement options.
Delayed Gatlings
Kum's gatlings are timed differently from other characters': instead of inputting the second attack just as the first is hitting, you should slightly delay the second button until after the first makes contact and begins to recover. It's easier than it sounds, and although the timing is slightly more precise than other characters' traditional gatlings, using them is not difficult at all. Kum's aerial normals have normal gatling windows.

[edit]

  • Hits overhead on the second hit

The high hitting twin of 6K. Is 0 on block instead of advantageous like 6K. Depending on character hitboxes some characters block the first hit standing, or even crouching, so generally you do a normal with frame advantage during 236H oki (c.S) to push them into a range where 5H(1) will whiff, and then 5H or 6K.

The first hit is useful for air confirms from 6P given it is jump cancelable; it can also anti-air, but generally Haehyun's other options are better suited to the task

[edit]

  • Can negate 1 projectile hit during the startup frames where the Red Kanji is present

Heavily telegraphed and slow dust; mediocre followups midscreen, but great conversions in the corner, including meterless unblockables with 214[K]~4 and meaty 5H overhead setups. You should look to convert corner 214K hits into RC>dashing 5D for optimal combos.

As for this move's projectile negation properties, it is functional but loses to multi hit projectiles and empowered projectiles such as Grinder Stun Edge. Has significantly more(>2x) startup than S Tuning Ball, but 1/4th its recovery. Therefore, it is best used against projectiles that are far away from the opponent, so that you have enough time to safely get 5D active and quickly return to neutral. If the opponent has YRC'd the projectile/is following their projectile in it is probably better to 236S YRC or simply block.

[edit]

Combo starter that leads into Haehyun’s BnB. Both hits can combo at a decent range and the move starts up in 9 frames so it has value as a rewarding raw punish and a 214K RC confirm midscreen. Additionally, it has uses as an anti air specifically versus moves beating c.S and 5P by hitting directly on Haehyun's shoulders. Haehyun ducks a bit on startup, meaning it is useful for low profiling the aforementioned situations, an example being anti-airing Chipp's air teleports.

  • First hit floats on CH, allowing for anti-air confirms into 214[K]>623[K]~4 loops.

[edit]

Midscreen knockdown tool primarily, along with granting combos via 2D>623[K]~4 (Blue). You'll want to get used to confirming into it and canceling into 236H for okizeme. As a footsie tool it is rather lackluster, and on block it is rather unsafe, with subpar special cancels that are also unsafe. It does serve as a competent punish for moves like Stun Dipper and Greed Sever at ranges where the only rewarding alternative would be 5S>214K with 50 meter.

Another unique quality of 2D is that it is special cancelable throughout its recovery frames, to ensure you can confirm into 236H okizeme. An avenue this quirk opens up is the ability to delay cancel 2D into 236S YRC, rather than PRC, giving you some repressure opportunities.

Make sure to practice hit confirming this move from pressure strings, otherwise you will give your opponent needless punishes/turns.

  • 1-6 Upper body invul 7-18 Above Knee Invul
  • Has a hit box on both sides, which can be of use against roll type moves that can crossup (Elphelt, Millia) and destroying Jack-O houses that are behind Haehyun.

Low profile anti-air. Because Haehyun crouches during startup it can beat moves like Beak Driver, Faust f.S and Scapel Grab, and evade some projectiles. As of patch 1.03 you can link into Red 623K~4 on normal hit along with normals such as 5H for an air combo. Since it launches higher than 2H using 6P instead of 2h to launch the opponent into kickloops has the benefit of being burst safe.

[edit]

  • Groundslides opponent on CH midscreen
  • Wall bounces opponent in corner

A low reward high risk callout move; think of Slayer’s Pilebunker. Clocking in at 7 frames, this move can punish greedy decisions(Ky's Split Ciel in neutral/blockstrings) and projectiles on (instant) block. One problematic element of this move is that is sends your opponent reeling fullscreen, eliminating 236H okizeme, which can be vexing versus characters that are good in “neutral reset” situations (Jack-O). On CH you can usually pick up with 623[K] versus most characters midscreen(not Sin) and 2P in the corner.

[edit]

  • Pops Haehyun into the air on Hit/Block

An intresting move that seemingly has no use on a grounded opponent, unless you use it from a jump cancel 2H into j.2k, followed by j.D for cross up. However where this move shines is on an airborne opponent. If you jump right on top them, say after a red kick, and they choose to air recover you get a throw. Can only use once before returning to the ground.

  • As of 2.10, When it makes contact with the opponent, Kum can choose which way to move with forward and backwards inputs

0,68 Ground Throw: 88750 1 - - +59

[edit]

  • 65% Forced Proration

As of patch 1.03, Throw grants Haehyun universal 236H okizeme midscreen. Because Haehyun can combo off of her throw from fireball okizeme (you still control the fireball during the throw animation), this makes throws extremely rewarding both for starting offense, continuing offense in addition to Throw's universal role as a defensive option.

For a combo you can RC into 623[K]~4 Redx4>5H>j.PPSH

As Haehyun's 6H is extremely punishable on whiff/block it is even more important than for other characters that you option select Haehyun's throw(6S+HS).

[edit]

  • 65% Forced Proration

As of patch 1.03, Airthrow grants Haehyun universal 236H okizeme midscreen.

Although airthrows are a universal anti-air option in Guilty Gear, Haehyun's large aerial hurtbox,low aerial mobility, and difficulty converting from abare j.P mean she takes a bit more risk than the average character when going for an airthrow. Additionally, since her CH anti-air confirms are more damaging you might want to consider a grounded anti air unless absolutely necessary (Bandit Bringer and the like).

[edit]

236S

  • Active for 147 Frames.
  • Getting hit or blocking makes the projectile dissipate.

Classic midrange space control with a twist: MORE control! The ability to move Tuning Balls means safer approaches versus characters without projectiles, and the ability to make unsafe moves like 214K and 623[K] more palatable to use in neutral. Still, this projectile has lengthy startup, and the initial projectile hitbox is a bit in front of Haehyun, meaning an opponent can often jump over the fireball and cleanly hit Haehyun during startup. Additionally, it is incredibly unsafe in blockstrings and the like, meaning that close range use of S Tuning Ball needs to be supplemented with YRC.

236H

  • Active for 140 Frames, 3 Hits.
  • Getting hit or blocking makes the projectile dissipate.

The linchpin of Haehyun's okizeme, H Tuning Ball allows her to force her opponent to block the projectile for one hit, and then have the fireball float behind the opponent with two additional hits to supplement Haehyun's pressure. Safe pressure, combos from normal throw, and multiple 50/50 high low mixups can be inflicted upon the opponent from a single knockdown with proper conditioning and control of 236H.

[edit]

623K

  • 1-4 Upper Body invulnerability, 5-7 Above Knees invulnerability, 8-18 Full invulnerability.

A Dragon Kick with upper body invulnerability. As a reversal this move will lose to any meaty attack, even mids. As an anti-air however, this move is quite competent; it can deal with normally difficult to anti air moves like Elphelt's Air Bridal Express. You can RC on hit into 214[K]>623[K]~4 combos.

623[K]

  • 1-4 Upper Body invulnerability, 5~Kick startup Above Knee invulnerability.

High risk low reward low profile slide reminiscent of Grand Viper. Do keep in mind that this move’s hitbox is not quite as low as Grand Viper so it will clash with some mid hitting attacks instead of cleanly beating them.If they reach the corner you can combo with RC>214[K] into 623[K]~4 combos.

For certain confirms, usually from 2D, where you want a combo more damaging than stuff>2D but cannot get a 2H starter.

  • 1~4 Upper Body invulnerability, 5~30 Above Knee invulnerability extended up to 66 on button hold
  • Wall bounces on hit(longer untech than the uncharged version)

What makes Haehyun such a damaging character. 2H into 3 of these will do a sizeable chunk of damage and lead into a knockdown that can yield yet another combo into Charged Reverse Four Tiger's Sword

214K

  • Haehyun’s hurtbox alters when she lifts up her leg before the kick, so this move can go over low attacks if timed properly.
  • Can inflict varying knockdown momentum on air opponents depending on which portion of Falcon Kick's hitbox you strike them with.

One of Haehyun's primary neutral and movement tools because it can hit airborne opponents and go over lows; it is a tool you should use enough that it is always on your opponents mind, but not obviously enough that they consistently expect and punish it. Gains range and frame advantage when charged. Punishable on instant block, and since the primary move you string into 214K is f.S, which is not jump cancelable, varying your options in neutral instead of relying on 214K is important. Can have varying knockdown momentum on air opponents depending on which portion of Falcon Kick's hitbox you strike them with.


214[K]

  • Wall bounces on air hit

Combo staple and a way to force yourself into on timid opponents unwilling to contest you charging Falcon kick. Additionally, charging 214K is one way to throw off your opponent's instant block timing, which is key in preventing your opponent from neutralizing Falcon Kick's strengths in neutral

[edit]

  • Additional untech time on counterhit

A steerable dive kick that suplement's Haehyun's otherwise limited movement. Can be used to bait anti-airs like any dive kick, but will often outright lose if your opponent doesn't take the bait.

Despite its shortcomings, air Falcon Dive serves an important role for Haehyun, and you should not be afraid to use it.

Can be comboed from on normal and counter hit; the latter is generally easier and can allow for a microdash into a ground combo.

  • You can move your opponent around the screen omnidirectionally as you hold H; if your opponent is in hitstun when you active the super they are put into a capture state
  • After charging for 151 frames this move is UNBLOCKABLE
  • Hits slightly behind Haehyun as well.

7 Frame Reversal Super.

Generally, you push them away if they are blocking to avoid getting punished and move them behind you if they are in hitstun so the clap hits them behind you, granting a combo extension midscreen. In the corner, if you put them in a capture state you want to float them slightly higher, so they take longer to tumble to the ground and make it easier to Dash 2H after the clap.

Unblockable setups for this super can be intiated from corner 5D.

  • Fully invulnerable frames 1-8
  • Projectile lasts 240 frames
  • Drastically decreased tension gain while the projectile is active

Fully controllable projectile. Generally not the best move to randomly throw out in a neutral situation, especially since the projectile is slow enough that once you commit to moving the projectile into the air or along the ground if your opponent guessed correctly it can be hard to drag the projectile towards them.

Shines more as a okizeme tool to bridge to unblockables or mixups obscured by the projectile.
