Goodfriend played for Pantech Curitel in his early career, until transferring to KTF in 2005 and then eSTRO in 2008. Goodfriend was a great Terran player of his time. He was a force in Proleague for KTF in his prime; even more impressively, he reached the finals of the EVER2005 OSL, the semifinals of the 2006 Shinhan Bank OSL Season 2 and 3rd place match of the IOPS OSL. However, in these matches he was beaten 3-2, 3-0, 3-0 by July, NaDa and GoRush respectively.
Despite his achievements and sometimes overwhelmingly strong gameplay, he also was the victim of several "of the year" matches: by Nal_rA with Hallucinated Arbiters overcoming mass Goliath in one swift move, and was "taken on a trip" by iloveoov with pure Wraiths against a Goliath/Turret line on Nostalgia. Being victim of these notable games and decisive Starleague matches, using the overplayed Terran race, and being a macromanagement player who became better as the match elongates, he was considered one of the more underappreciated progamers. Nevertheless, fans in Korea knew that Goodfriend was a very skilled Terran albeit having less 관심, or interest and fondness.
- As an icon of the underappreciated progamer, people jokingly started to wonder if he really existed. From this lack of recognition Goodfriend got a new nickname "dllqudals", which is what you get if you type his name, 이병민, on an English keyboard. This in turn continued with his fans reading dllqudals out loud in Korean and making it into the word 들쿠달스. They then once again typed this down on an English keyboard and got the word emfznekftm. These two names eventually combined with the addition of "von" in the middle and "Count" at the beginning and thus Goodfriend got the new nickname "Count dlqudals von emfznekftm".
