Biography

2013
Bengi first appeared in the pro scene playing a few games for the team BBT, which dropped out of NLB Winter 2012-2013. KkOma eventually added him to the initial SK Telecom T1 2 roster. On November 12th, both SKT teams were renamed from #1 and #2 to S and K, respectively. Though it was initially known as SK Telecom's secondary team, K outperformed S, winning the Season 3 World Championship and then having a perfect season in Champions Winter 2013-2014.

2014
Bengi and SKT T1 K (as they were now known) began the 2014 season in emphatic fashion, going undefeated through the PANDORA.TV Champions Winter 2013-2014 season, defeating old rivals KT Rolster Bullets and Samsung Ozone along the way. This triumph made SKT T1 K the first team to ever win two seasons of Champions Korea, a feat which installed them as perhaps the greatest League of Legends team the game had seen thus far. HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014 proved to be much more difficult for SKT however, as they battled a changing meta-game and the loss of support player PoohManDu to illness. After scraping through the group stages they were eliminated by Samsung Ozone with a score of 3-1. SKTs victory in Champions winter had earned them the right to attend All-Star Paris 2014 as the representative from Korea. There they competed against the winners of each of the other major regions and defeated them all, winning the tournament without dropping a game. Their international victory did nothing to improve their domestic woes however, as the team crashed out of HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014, once again in the quarterfinals, and once again at the hands of Samsung White (formerly Ozone).

SKT T1 K were tied with Samsung White in circuit points and so the two teams faced off to decide who would attend the Season 4 World Championships as the second seed from Korea. This time SKT were unable to even take a game from Samsung. The team was forced to compete in the 2014 Season Korea Regional finals in order to claim the final berth to the World Championship. An embarrassing loss to Najin White Shield put an end to their hopes of a second World title and capped off a disappointing season for the once-unbeatable SK Telecom T1 K

2015

In Season 5 after SKT was forced to merge both of its teams, SKT T1 was formed with bengi on the team. SKT had a great season, first winning the Spring Split of the LCK. At the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational, the team suffered a rough 2-3 loss to Edward Gaming. It also marked the first time a Korean team fell in a best of five series. Despite this loss however, SKT recovered and won the Summer Split of the LCK.

Heading into the 2015 World Championship, they were one of the favorites to win it all. After facing their Chinese rivals EDG in groups as well as H2K-Gaming and Bangkok Titans, SKT went undefeated in the group. In the Quarterfinals they would defeat Ahq eSports Club in a 3-0 sweep. In the Semifinals they defeated Origen in yet another 3-0 sweep. In the Finals, the KOO Tigers became the only team that took a game off of SKT but in the end SKT won the series 3-1 and bengi as well as Faker became a two time world champion.

2016
The team had a good start in 2016 as they won IEM X World Championship after beating Fnatic (3-0). They finished 3rd in the regular split of the LCK but won the entire tournament after dominating ROX Tigers in a 3-1 victory. SK Telecom T1 then proceeded to winning the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational against Counter Logic Gaming (3-0).

In summer, the team placed 2nd in the regular split then lost to KT Rolster (2-3) in the playoffs. However, KT Rolster failed to beat ROX Tigers in the finals, thus giving SKT the chance to be one of the representatives of LCK for the 2016 World Championship which they won (for the 3rd time) after beating ROX Tigers (3-2) in the semifinals and ending their series against Samsung Galaxy in the finals (3-2). This also meant bengi and Faker became the first three time world champions. Moving forward, the team had to face ROX Tigers again in the semifinals of the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup where the team's effort fell short and they lost the series (0-2).

In November of 2016 bengi left the team. In the next month he would go on to join Vici Gaming and reunited with former teammate Easyhoon.
