Smeb began his pro career with Incredible Miracle 1 in March of 2013. This proved to be a rough beginning for Smeb, as his team consistently failed to advance through the group stages of several major events, including the IEM Season VII - World Championship and OLYMPUS Champions Spring 2013. After IM1 continued its poor performance through HOT6iX Champions Summer 2013, Smeb was removed from his starting position to the reserves.
Smeb was able to play again as a starter in the HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014 series, but as a team IM1 could not perform well and were stopped yet again in the group stages. Smeb's final stint with the team would be in the HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014 tournament where they still could not make it to the bracket stage, and Smeb left the team a few months later in September.
On November 14th, 2014, Smeb joined the HUYA Tigers along with Kuro, Lee, PraY, and GorillA. This team played in the SBENU Champions 2015 Spring, where they renamed the team to GE Tigers. This team did well at the start of the 2015 season and earned an invitation to the IEM Season 9 World Championship. It was there that the team fought their way to the semifinals, losing only in a 1-2 reverse sweep to Team WE who, in turn, were defeated by Team SoloMid. After returning home, the team proceeded to play in the Champions playoffs due to their first place standing in the regular season. The Tigers made it to the finals where they lost to SK Telecom T1 in a 0-3 sweep and placed second in the entire tournament. The Tigers then played in LCK Summer under a slightly changed name, the KOO Tigers. It was there that they placed fourth in the regular season and qualified for the playoffs but lost in the semifinals to KT Rolster in a 2-3, back-and-forth match. After the summer playoffs ended, KOO was picked as the second seed to the 2015 World Championship due to circuit points. There, KOO performed well in their group, losing twice only to the yoe Flash Wolves. In the bracket stage, they knocked out KT Rolster 3-1 and swept Fnatic 3-0 in the semifinals. In the finals, KOO Tigers were defeated by SK Telecom T1 in a 3-1 fashion.
Prior to the 2016 season, KOO Tigers changed their name to ROX Tigers. The ROX Tigers finished the Spring in first place with a 16-2 record. In the finals of the Playoffs, ROX Tigers were defeated by SK Telecom T1 in a 3-1 fashion. In the regular season of the summer split, they were once again able to finish 1st with a 15-3 record. This time around, their opponent in the final wasn't SK Telecom, it was KT Rolster. In a very close series that became a classic, ROX was able to win it (3-2) and capture their first LCK title since they were formed.
By winning the Summer Split, the team automatically qualifies for the World Championship. They were drawn in Group A together with LCL team Albus NoX Luna, NA LCS team Counter Logic Gaming and EU LCS team G2 Esports. After 6 matches, they tied the standing with ANX but got the first seed after winning the tiebreaker match. Moving to the bracket stage, Smeb and team were seeded against the #1 seed from the LPL region, EDward Gaming. They were able to beat the Chinese powerhouse by ending the series at 3-1. However, moving on to the Semifinals, they faced SK Telecom T1. Although it was a close series, ROX's efforts still fell short as game 5 went in SKT's favor, ending the Tiger's run at 3rd-4th place.
In the off season, the organization broke the sad news regarding their roster. It was announced that all members have become free agents and are open to offers. This then lead to the departure of the players, including Smeb. On November 29th, KT Rolster announced that Smeb has joined the team and will be their starting Top Laner. He will be playing with Score, PawN, Mata and Deft for the upcoming Spring Split.
