He is now active as a coach in League of Legends and currently coaches for SK Telecom T1.

In Beta[edit]

Ensnare was widely considered one of the strongest South Korean Terran players during the beta.

Wings of Liberty[edit]

Ensnare's first major result was coming second in the WTA Takedown! after losing the finals 3-2 to TheStC.

Global StarCraft II League[edit]

GSL Open Seasons[edit]

During the 2010 TG Sambo Intel Starcraft II Open Season 1, the first GSL competition, Ensnare would reach the semifinals before losing to RainBOw, but securing himself Code S in the process. In the next open season, Ensnare would reach the Round of 16 before losing to Kyrix with a score of 1-2. Ensnare would failed to qualify for the final open season of GSL.

Code S[edit]

As of the 2011 October GSL Season, Ensnare has played in every Code S season since its inception. His most notable result being reaching the Round of 16 in GSL March after defeating NesTea and BoxeR in the group stage.

Ensnare lost to GanZi and Leenock in the 2011 GSL November. Placing last in his group, he would drop down to Code A.

Code A[edit]

In his first Code A match during the 2011 GSL November Round of 48, he was defeated swiftly by Cezanne.

Global StarCraft II Team League[edit]

2011 GSTL February[edit]

On February 8, 2011, for the 2011 GSTL February, oGs sent out Ensnare as their starting player against IM. He wasn't able to take out IM's Seed and allowed IM to take the lead at 1-0.

Outside Korea[edit]

Ensnare was accepted, along with several other South Korean players, to play in the first season of NASL. He went 3-6 in series in Pool B, the worst performance out of any South Korean in the tournament, and failed to make the playoffs. Despite this, he still retained his seed for NASL2, although later oGs along with most other South Korean teams would withdraw from the tournament.[1]


  • Ensnare was the first player ever to drop from Code S to Code B in a single season. He was the only player to do so in 2011 GSL November, the first season under which this result was possible.
