Flame had been active as a professional League of Legends player from 2012 to 2020, and played in the LCK, LPL, and the LCS. During his prime, he earned himself the nickname: Pilot, for his ability to carry the whole team.
Early in his career, Flame played for Azubu Blaze (CJ Entus Blaze) and spent a year in the LPL in LGD Gaming. His return to the LCK was in Incredible Miracle (Longzhu Gaming) where he played for a year. In 2017, Flame moved on to the LCS and played for Immortals and Flyquest. He returned to the LCK again, this time in DAMWON Gaming (DWG KIA), where he won the World Championship as a substitute member.
At the end of 2020, Flame announced his retirement and served as a content creator and streamer of DWG KIA. As of this announcement, Flame will be creating content with T1 alongside Lim “BoxeR” Yo-hwan, Bae “Bang” Jun-sik, Lee “Wolf” Jae-wan, etc. By signing Flame, T1 strengthened their content creator lineup.
