Lee "Jaedong" Jae Dong is a StarCraft progamer from South Korea. He currently plays for Evil Geniuses. He played his first official StarCraft II match during the hybrid 2011-2012 Proleague Season 2.
Jaedong was one of the best players of the Brood War era, gathering no less than six premier titles (three time OnGameNet Starleague champion, two time MBCGame StarCraft League champion, and one time World Cyber Games champion).
 Wings of Liberty
Jaedong played his first official StarCraft II match during the hybrid 2011-2012 Proleague Season 2 first round, as he was defeated by SK Telecom T1's Rain on May 20th. In early June, he was one of the eight KeSPA-affiliated players to be sent to the KeSPA exhibition tournament at the 2012 MLG Spring Championship, where he eliminated Leta before losing to Bisu.
Due to his success in the 2011-2012 Proleague Season 2, Jaedong would be one of the two KeSPA Code S seeds for the 2012 GSL Season 4. He was chosen by MC to play in his group, Group C, together with Curious and MarineKing and made his GSL debut on Wednesday, September 5th. He would disappointingly go 0-2 in his group, winning only a single game against MarineKing and drop down to Code A. There, in his first match against finale, Jaedong would lose 0-2 to drop out of Code A and end his GSL debut.
Jaedong sprang back in the following GSL season, however, as he qualified for Code A after going through the brutal preliminaries. Jaedong beat Shuttle, Shine and Puma to make it back into the GSL, only dropping a single game throughout his preliminary run. He then went on to defeat Sirius 2-1 in the first round, and Losira 2-0 in the second. He faced Hack in the round of 24 for a Code S spot, but ultimately lost 1-2. In the Up and Down Matches, Jaedong was grouped with his Brood War rival Flash, and ended up beating him in their match. Despite ending the night with the same score as Flash, Jaedong's head to head win allowed him to place ahead of his rival, and secure third place for a shot at Code S via the Wildcard tournament.
- In May 2010, Lee Jae Dong was selected as a South Korea representative for the WCG 2010 Torch Relay.
- There are two common South Korean nicknames for Jaedong: 폭군 (Pok-kkun, 'The Tyrant') and 파괴신 (Pagoesin, 'The God of Destruction' or 'Destructor'). The nickname ‘Tyrant’ was coined by OGN commentator Um Jae Kyung because Jaedong's hyper-aggressive style set him apart from other Zerg players. 'The Legend Killer' was a nickname given to Jaedong by the Western community.
- Was selected the Most Valuable Player of the 2011-2012 Proleague Season 2's regular-season.
- At an end of the year charity event in 2012, Jaedong's keyboard was sold for 250,000 KRW after a bidding war between two fangirls.
