This the guide on how to root LG Star or also know as Korean version of LG Optimus 2x

4.) Extract the the cwm-5.0.2.7-su660-20111121.zip file to drive c:\
I'll refer to this as C:\NV, but you can name it anything you like. Power off your phone and remove the battery. If you are using a desktop computer, plug the full-size USB-plug directly into a port on the motherboard (backside of the case usually). Press and hold volume-up AND volume-down while plugging the micro-USB into the phone. 

5.) Browse the c:\NV folder and click on flash-recovery.bat (if you are using Windows 7) or flash-recovery_xp.bat (If you are using Windows XP) and then choose option #1

The phone will display a Software-upgrade-screen, while the command-window will inform you of the progress. After a little while it'll be finished and you can press any key to exit. (Now, where's that 'any'-key again?) Just to be safe, wait another 10 seconds before removing the usb-cable from the phone, cutting its power. Now install the battery again.

6.) Hold volume-down and home key (center button) while pressing the power-key. Keep buttons pressed until you see an LG-Logo with a bluish halo. Now you should be in the regular ClockworkMod. Choose «Install Zip from sdcard» (by navigating to it with the volume-buttons, then select it with the power-button) then «choose zip from sdcard». Navigate to where you put SuperuserSU660.zip, select it and confirm. After a short while it'll inform you it's done. Press back-button, select «reboot system now.»

7.) Go to app drawer and if you see the superuser app installed, you have successfully rooted your phone
8.) Now go the market and install and run Busybox installer. Grant it root access when it asks, click OK bottom right, scroll to the bottom of the next screen and click Install. Voila, you're done.
