Legacy of the Void
- Beat IdrA in a Best of 7 Showmatch in under 30 Minutes.
- Is a member of the so-called "invisible line" (투명라인) - players who for some reason are always overlooked. The "invisible line" includes the likes of GoodFriend (dlqudals), Light (dlwogh), and herO (rlawnsgh).
- In early 2016, the Korean fandom started a long-running joke of creating alter egos for players who were showing inexplicably bad performances. These alter egos would take over the player's bodies at inopportune moments and cause them to perform in bizarre ways. aLive's alter ego is the progamer Yi Er San (一二三, or 123). His name comes from aLive's old nickname, "123," which is aLive's Korean name read as numbers: 한 means 1, 이 means 2, and 석 means 3.
