Byeong Mun "Qudans" Son is a South Korean Fighting Games Player currently playing for UYU.

Information[edit]

Qudans first began playing Tekken from the first game in the series at a young age casually. It was not until Tekken Tag Tournament that he began to play seriously [1], quickly making a name for himself in the South Korean Tekken scene and became an EVO Champion for the game in 2005, defeating Ryan Hart in the finals [2]. Qudans kept playing until 2007, retiring due to hand fatigue experienced from excessive exercising which even forced him to temporarily switch to using a Joypad for Electric Cancel 6 [3] (he won the Tekken 5 and Tekken Tag Tournament events regardless). After this Qudans went on a five year hiatus from competitive Tekken, enlisting in the Army, going to University and getting a part-time job.

After his hiatus Qudans made his return to Tekken after being convinced by fellow player Ji3moon Ace to start playing Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and was motivated as well after watching Knee playing for numerous tournaments. His rise to stardom once again started with Tekken 7 however winning multiple tournaments such as the first season of AfreecaTV TEKKEN League and the SEA Major with the latter victory ensuring him a place at the first Tekken World Tour Finals where he emphatically won the event after a 10 year absence from North American tournaments. Shortly after this he was sponsored by ROX Dragons for the next TWT circuit but later signed with UYU in early 2018.
