Wings of Liberty[edit]

On July 23, 2012, Dear participated in the 2012 South Korea WCS Preliminaries. Dear received a BYE in round one and then took down Leta, Bomber, JangBi, and faced sC in the finals. He was not able to advance any further as he lost to sC by a score of 0:2 and took 2nd place.

Heart of the Swarm[edit]

On June 26, 2013 Dear participated in the WCS Korea Season 2 Qualifiers. He received a BYE in round one, and then beat Fury, Light, and Pet to qualify for Challenger League.

Dear qualified for the 2013 MLG Spring Championship through the Kespa Qualifiers. He won the Group C bracket, beating Solar, hyvaa, and jangbi, among others, for the spot. At the main event, Dear was placed into Bracket 7 in the Winners Bracket. After beating Nathanias, TheStC, and Stats he managed to beat qxc 2-1 to advance directly to the Final Bracket. After scoring an initial victory over Jaedong he lost 0-2 to Polt and then NaNiwa to be knocked out the tournament. His final record was 10-5 and he achieved a 5-6th place finish.

After defeating ByuN and losing to Flying in Challenger League, Dear played in the Season 3 Up and Down matches. In a five-player group, he won his first three matches against Curious, MarineKing, and Swagger, which was enough to secure him a spot in Premier League. After defeating SuperNova twice in the Round of 32, Dear defeated DongRaeGu and Sleep to reach the quarterfinals. He defeated his teammate Trap 3-0 and the previous season's champion Maru 3-1 to reach the finals against soO. After a 4-2 victory over his opponent, he became the third Protoss player to win a GSL championship.

Dear played in the WCS 2013 Season 3 Finals on October 25-27 in Toronto, Canada. He defeated HerO, lost to Oz, then defeated HerO again to advance to the bracket stage. Similarly to his WCS Korea run, he defeated his first opponent MC 3-0 and his semifinal opponent Maru 3-1 to reach the finals against Soulkey. With a 4-0 score, he became the third consecutive player to sweep his opponent in a WCS Season final and the first player to win both a regional final and a season final. He also made the 2013 WCS Global Finals, where he beat TaeJa before falling just short against Jaedong in a nailbiting finish. On December 19th, he was announced as the first Korean to join Mousesports.
