Heo "PawN" Won-seok (Hangul: 허원석) is a retired League of Legends esports player, currently a member of the broadcast team for Riot Games Inc..


Season 3[edit]

Heo "WonSeok" Won-seok originally played for MiG Blitz under the name Wonseok as a mid laner during HOT6iX Champions Summer 2013. The team had a decent showing but failed to make it past the group stage. He left the team in October to join Samsung Blue as a mid laner when he changed his name to "PawN". PawN made a name for himself in the 2013 WCG Qualifiers when he managed to solokill Faker in lane.

2014 Season[edit]

PawN played his first OGN with his team at PANDORA.TV Champions Winter 2013-2014 where they managed to make it to the quarterfinals but were swept 3-0 by the eventual champions, SK Telecom T1 K. Later, PawN became the mid laner for Samsung Ozone or Samsung White, switching teams with Dade. At HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014, PawN and his new team would run into Blue in the semifinals and fall to them 3-1 but they would beat CJ Entus Blaze 3-2 to end in third place. Once again, at HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014 White would face blue in the semifinals and again they would lose 3-1. White would go on to sweep SK Telecom T1 S to place third for the second time in a row. White was forced to play a tiebreaker against SKT T1 K for the second seed in the 2014 Season World Championship. White dominated SKT, sweeping the series and taking their spot at Worlds. PawN and crew rolled through the 2014 Season World Championship, only dropping two games and ending it on a dominating 3-1 victory against Star Horn Royal Club to seal the Championship. For much of his time on SSW, he would play a more passive style while the rest of the team carried. Later on during his tenure on the team, he would begin playing a more lane dominant style with champions like Jayce and Talon. He became known to some as Faker's kryptonite, or the "God slayer" for solo killing him in lane.

2015 Season[edit]

On October 31, 2014, PawN announced his departure from Samsung White.[21] On December 2, he joined EDward Gaming.[22] PawN and the rest of the team 3-0'd EDG's biggest offseason rivals, Team King at the G-League 2014 final when he made his first appearance as the squad's mid laner.

Edward Gaming placed first in the 2015 LPL Spring regular season with PawN as the starting mid laner. In 44 regular season games, PawN played 42 due to illness. PawN also played for the team during the 2015 Demacia Cup Spring where they went undefeated from the round-of-sixteen until the finals which ended in a crushing 3-0 victory against Invictus Gaming. During this period, PawN specialized in a wide range of champions from Veigar to the more conventional Kassadin and Leblanc. He played 18 different champions in 42 regular season games. His playstyle morphed into a more lane focused, jungle attention seeking role. At times, it seemed he chose immobile champions to make himself an easy target for the jungler. At the start of the 2015 Spring LPL Playoffs, PawN fell ill. Pain in his back prevented him from attending the quarterfinals against Team WE, and he was sent to the hospital. EDG went up two games before losing the next two. After the first loss EDG experienced, PawN reportedly asked to be taken to the LPL stadium. He played for the team in Game 5 for a victory, allowing them to advance to the semifinals.[23] He continued to play for the team through the finals, where EDG won 3-2 against LGD Gaming and won their spot at the Mid-Season Invitational.

At MSI, EDG pushed their way to the finals and upset the heavily favored SK Telecom T1 by baiting Faker into picking LeBlanc and picking a comp to counter it. EDG won the series 3-2 and took home the title of best team in the World. EDG participated in the 2015 Demacia Cup Summer Season where they won again by taking a 3-0 set against OMG. They ended in first place once again in the 2015 LPL Summer Regular Season but in the 2015 LPL Summer Playoffs they faltered, dropping a 3-0 set to LGD and a 3-1 set to IG to end in fourth place overall. They still qualified for the 2015 Season China Regional Finals and managed to take the second seed from China to the 2015 Season World Championship with a 3-1 victory over IG. EDG were placed in a group with SK Telecom, H2k Gaming, and the Bangkok Titans. They came out of the group in second place and were drawn to play Fnatic in the quarterfinals but lost to them 3-0.

After a rocky start to the 2016 season, EDG returned to form and received second place in their group. PawN had been slipping in and out of the starting roster, with Athena taking his place when his injury didn't allow him to play. However, toward the end of the season, PawN played most of the games and until the playoffs. In the semifinals, the Qiao Gu Reapers forfeited their match, and they were to play Royal Never Give Up in the finals. EDG lost 1-3 to RNG, and received second in the Spring Season.

During the offseason, PawN stepped down from the starting roster, and Scout was set to replace him as the starting midlaner.[24]

2016 Season[edit]

EDG had a rough start to the 2016 LPL Spring Season and played several games without ClearLove. They were however able to bounce back and finished 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. Once summer came, EDG was placed in Group A of the 2016 LPL Summer Season. This split would be the start to EDG's resurgence as the team finished with an undefeated 16-0 regular season. In the 2016 LPL Summer Playoffs EDG would defeat Team WE 3-2 in the semifinals which set them up for a rematch against Royal Never Give Up. In clean fashion, EDG was able to defeat RNG in a 3-0 sweep and reclaim the LPL championship while also qualifying for the 2016 Season World Championship as China's #1 seed.

At Worlds, PawN and EDG were grouped against H2k-Gaming, ahq e-Sports Club and INTZ e-Sports and finished as the 2nd seed after they lost the tiebreaker match against H2k. They were then seeded against ROX Tigers in the bracket stage and lost the series 1-3. After Worlds, EDG made an announcement that PawN will be leaving the team after the 2016 Demacia Cup, which they won after a win against I May in the Finals. In November, KT Rolster announced that PawN would be the team's new mid laner in the upcoming season.

2017 Season[edit]

In the 2017 LCK Spring Season KT performed well and finished third in the standings. They faced MVP in the second round and won 2-0. They advanced to face Samsung Galaxy in the semifinals sweeping them 3-0 in the process. However in the LCK/2017 Season/Spring Playoffs KT fell short and lost 0-3 to SK Telecom T1 in the finals. Although their regular season run in summer was more successful finishing second with a match score of 14-4, their playoff run was worse and they fell 2-3 to SKT again but in the semifinals this time. In the 2017 Season Korea Regional Finals KT was taken down 0-3 by Samsung Galaxy and failed to qualify for the 2017 Season World Championship. They finished their season by winning the 2017 LoL KeSPA Cup. In the quarterfinals they faced E8W which they beat 2-0, followed by winning 2-1 against Samsung. They capped off their run by beating Longzhu Gaming 3-2 in the finals.

2019 Season[edit]

Pawn joined Kingzone DragonX for the 2019 season along with his longtime teammate Deft. Kingzone finished a strong third in the Spring Season with a 13-5 record, but were immediately swept by SKT in the playoffs.

In May, Kingzone announced that Pawn would become inactive due to health issues. He remained inactive for the rest of the 2019 season before announcing his retirement in September. In December, Pawn revealed in an interview with InvenGlobal that he had retired due to developing obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). However, he stated that he still wanted to play professionally, and did not rule out a return if his issues improved.
