He qualified for 2013 WCS Korea Season 2 Challenger League, eliminating TANGTANG, KassiA and former GSL champion Sniper. He was picked up by StarTale after his run in the qualifiers.[3]

2014 HomeStory Cup IX[edit]

Managed to beat ToD 2-0 and Bomber 2-1 in the first group stage of the HomeStory Cup IX and therefore advanced to the second group stage.


  • Got his nickname "Balloon" after a discussion with his friends about good nicknames during high school. As a result of the conversation one of his friends came up with the name Balloon, which the friend wanted to take for a game. After that conversation Balloon went home and stole that name by taking it first.
  • During his first games in the HomeStory Cup IX the casters often used the phrase "ballooned" to describe his victories over the favoured players.
