HiyA had posted mediocre results for the majority of his career, and has only advanced to the Ro32 in the Avalon MSL and recently to the Ro8 in the Hana Daetoo Securities MSL. HiyA broke out during the Shinhan Bank Winners League 08–09, where he was statistically the 4th best player in the league, going 17–9. Upon the disbandment of Hwaseung OZ, HiyA retired, though briefly came out of retirement to play in the 2012 Tving OSL Dual Tournament. Currently HiyA streams on Afreeca as a hobby and plays in amateur leagues.
