Overview[edit]

Biography[edit]

Snow made his first professional appearance in the 2008/09 GOMTV Avaratec-Intel Classic Season 2 where he was eliminated in the second round, making his Proleague debut almost one year later with a loss against Bisu in round 6 of the Shinhan Bank Proleague 08-09. Snow began to show his potential 2010 Shinhan Bank Winners League where he went 5-5, defeating players such as go.go and Jaehoon but it was in rounds 4 and 5 of the 2009-2010 Shinhan Bank Proleague where Snow truly rose to prominence. Finishing the season with a 16 - 8 record, including a perfect 8-0 versus Terran, Snow defeated several ace players including Flash, Leta and Kal. Snow's emergence was a driving force behind CJ Entus's qualification for the play-offs after their poor early season results, however CJ were unable to advance past the first round, with Snow losing to Bisu in the ace match of game 3.

2010 also saw Snow qualify for his first Starleague, the Korean Air OSL 2, where he lost 2-1 to Really, one month later he participated in his first MSL, the Bigfile MSL, again losing out in the first round to Mvp and Kal. To date, Snow's best Starleague performance came in the PDPop MSL where he advanced to the round of 8 before being narrowly eliminated by Jaedong in a thrilling 3-2 series.

Snow was unable to replicate his scintillating 2009-2010 form in the 2010-2011 Shinhan Bank Proleague, managing a solid, yet unspectacular, 16-15 record and ending the season with consecutive losses to SK Telecom T1 rookies yeOngJae and Perfective.

In March 2015, Snow enlisted in the military to fulfill South Korean conscription requirements, while returning to Afreeca in December 2016.[1][2]
