Originally called ON and playing for team NEX, Hack debuted on the scene during the final open season of the GSL. He was met with a quick departure as he would be eliminated in the first round 0-2, by BoxeR.

Since then, Hack has been unable to make a significant breakthrough in Korea. His most notable accomplishment is an all-kill of an inexperienced FXO in GSTL Season 1, a feat that was repeated by HoSeo. Hack has continued to compete in numerous online tournaments, perhaps being one of the most successful of the new South Korean wave of entrants into the weekly TL Opens with his collection of top two finishes.

Hack finally made it into Code A in GSL August, but lost in the first round to MarineKing, putting him back into Code B.
