|Country of Birth||South Korea|

He was formerly known as Wonseok.
PawN was originally on MiG Blitz but he didn't achieve much success with them and left the team in September of 2013. He would join Samsung Galaxy Blue one month later. The team had a few decent showings, placing 2nd at the 2013 WCG Korea Qualifiers and 3rd at ZOTAC NLB Winter 2013-2014.
PawN was moved over to sister team Samsung Galaxy White (formerly known as Samsung Galaxy Ozone) in February of 2014 while Dade took his spot on Blue. PawN would then attend the HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014 with White but only managed to reach 3rd place, defeating CJ Entus Blaze in the 3rd place match. During the HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014, White was unable to win the championship but managed to place 3rd after taking down SK Telecom T1 S in the 3rd place match. In the 2014 Season Korea Regional Finals, White took down SK Telecom T1 K in a tiebreaker match and qualified for the 2014 World Championship. At Worlds, White was able to breeze through groups, going undefeated with a 6-0 record. In the Quarterfinals they would face off against Team SoloMid and defeated them 3-1. They would then face their sister team Samsung Galaxy Blue. Despite analysts expecting a close series, White was able to sweep Blue 3-0 and advanced to the finals. Their final opponent was Star Horn Royal Club and although SHRC did take one game, White was able to defeat them and become the Season 4 World Champions. PawN would then leave White shortly after Worlds and joined Edward Gaming in November of 2014.
Edward Gaming regained their form in the LPL, coming first in the 2015 Spring Split. They defeated LGD Gaming 3-2 in the Playoff Final of the Spring Season. This allowed them to qualify for the first ever Mid-Season Invitational. EDG won this tournament, defeating Korea's SK Telecom T1 in the final, to win the tournament.
In the LPL summer split, EDG continued their surging form into the regular season, winning the majority of their matches to finish first. This didn't last long, however, as EDG finished fourth in playoffs and didn't qualify automatically. PawN was plagued with back problems through 2015 and it affected his performance in the Summer Season. Having to play in the Regional Finals, EDG defeated Snake Esports 2-0 and then Invictus Gaming 3-1 to qualify for the 2015 World Championship.
At Worlds, EDG was put in a group with former MSI rivals SK Telecom T1 as well as H2k-Gaming and Bangkok Titans. Despite a few shaky games, EDG only lost their two games against SKT and won their other four, advancing to the knockout stage. They would face Fnatic in the Quarterfinals and despite subbing out AmazingJ in favor of Koro1, EDG was defeated 0-3 and finished 4th-8th.
EDG had a rough start to the 2016 LPL Spring Split, playing several games without ClearLove. They were however able to bounce back, finishing 2nd in Group B, slightly behind Royal Never Give Up. In the playoffs, EDG was able to sweep Snake Esports 3-0 and then won automatically against Qiao Gu Reapers due to QG forfeiting the match. In the finals, EDG faced off against Royal Never Give Up and despite EDG being the favorites going into the match, they lost 1-3 and finished in 2nd place, failing to qualify for the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational. Throughout the 2016 LPL Summer Split, EDG was able to reclaim the LPL title and qualify for the World Championship but PawN would rarely play any games for EDG due to his injuries and the team wanting to play more games with Scout.
- Played the most games in ranked soloqueue in Korea in season 3, with over 3800 games.
- His Chinese nickname, 小胖, literally means "little fat". It was given to him because 胖 is pronounced "pang," sounding similar to his name.
- Used to be known as a one trick pony Fizz player for playing an overwhelming amount of games on the champion
- Was given the Captain's jacket by Dade after Samsung White beat Samsung Blue at Worlds. The jacket is represented on his 2014 World Championship skin.
