[edit] Heart of the Swarm

At Red Bull Battle Grounds New York City, PartinG said that if he defeated sOs, who had just won the WCS Global Finals (where PartinG had not made the field as a top 16 WCS point earner), then he, not the BlizzCon champion, was the best player in the world.[2]. He backed up his talk by going undefeated and conceding only three maps as he bested (in order) Scarlett, former teammate Bomber, MC and finally sOs himself in the finals 4-1 to win his first Premier Tournament since his WCG win 11 months beforehand.

[edit] Trivia

  • He is reputed to have a very strong 2 base Immortal All-In versus Zerg. According to him, it's because of the "soul" he puts into them, unlike some other players.[3] Fans started calling this build the "WonWonWon" when executed by him,[4] in reference to his name (Won Lee Sak), to the past tense of win, and to the South Korean currency, the won.[5] It also has a close consonance with the 1/1/1, a build that was also feared. It is sometimes referred as the "Soul Train".
  • Was a semi-pro in BW, being a practice partner for eStro.[6]
  • Celebrated a win against BaBy (ty) in the 2012 Auction All-Kill OSL Round of 16 with a bag of Sun Chips (BaBy's real name Tae Yang is the Korean for "Sun"), eating one and crushing another on camera.[7]
