H.O.T-Forever was one of the first progamers and captain of the Hanbit Stars team from 2001 through 2005. He left progaming in early 2006 to enlist in the military, later becoming one of the first Air Force progamers. H.O.T-Forever was a fairly accomplished 1v1 player but was more notable for his 2v2 skills. During his time with Hanbit he partnered with Reach to form one of the most powerful 2v2 teams in progaming. Later, during his tenure in ACE, he served as a 2v2 specialist and assisted the team in a coaching capacity. He was discharged from the military in 2008 and currently serves as a coach for KT Rolster.
- A TL Final Edits article has been written about him for the occasion of his retirement from play and entering the KT coaching staff.
- Despite having Zerg as his official race and spending most of his career on Hanbit(now Woongjin Stars), Forever is currently a coach for KT Rolster, specifically for their Protoss.
- First top-1 Zerg on the Kespa Ranking.
