Lee "Flame" Ho-jong was born in Busan, South Korea, and later moved to Ilsan. He has trained in progaming since he was young and enjoys it, having played League of Legends since October 2012, primarily playing toplane.
Flame entered the pro scene after being scouted from soloqueue and passing a test in Seoul to start playing with Azubu Blaze as their top laner, originally under the name Goldtec. He played his first tournament with Blaze during IGN ProLeague Season 5. Blaze placed third in their group and were forced to play in the loser's finals.

Blaze started the new season at PANDORA.TV Champions Winter 2013-2014 but lost again to the KT Bullets 3-1 in the quarterfinals. Blaze impressed again at HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014 but lost a very close 3-2 series to NaJin White Shield in the semifinals. Blaze lost in the third place match 3-2 to Samsung Ozone to end in fourth place. HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014 marked the worst season in Blaze's history, where they failed to make it out of the group stage for the first time ever. Though Flame was initially thought to be remaining on CJ Entus after the organization consolidated its two teams into a single roster, on December 1st the organization announced that Flame had left the team.
