Hong "MadLife" Min-gi is the Support player for CJ Entus Frost.


Prior to playing League of Legends he had played Starcraft as a child and transitioned to Starcraft II at the age of 18. In September 2010 he began playing League, his arrival into the game being later than many of his peers and team mates who in most cases had been playing since beta. The first champion he played was Blitzcrank, who he continues to play on a competitive level.

He remained with the team when it was acquired by CJ Entus and continues to play for them as of 2013.
