Yoon "TaeJa" Young Suh is a professional Terran player from South Korea, who is currently playing for Team Liquid.
Without any competitive background in e-sports, TaeJa began his progamer career during the summer of 2010 and remained a relatively unknown player for roughly ten months despite qualifying for the first ever season of the GSL. He started to make a name for himself after he joined team SlayerS in May 2011, as he achieved two all-kills in the GSTL and made his first appearance in Code S at age sixteen in the GSL October. Toward the end of the year and in early 2012, he completed a string of victories in ESV TV Korean Weeklies, but found himself unable of delivering noteworthy performances in offline events as well, dropping into Code A in December.
TaeJa signed for Team Liquid in March 2012, and rose to prominence during the next months. During the summer, he carried his team to the finals of the IPL Team Arena Challenge 3, achieving an unprecedented 23-3 record in the league. He became successful in individual tournaments as well starting this period, winning the MLG Summer Arena, the Assembly Summer 2012 and the DreamHack Open Valencia 2012, and reaching the semifinals of the MLG Summer Championship and of the GSL Season 4 – Code S.
When he was in kindergarten, TaeJa's parents ran a PC Bang (a South Korean LAN gaming center), where he encountered StarCraft: Brood War. He first tried StarCraft II when the open beta started in August 2010, and ended up placing high on the ladder. While he was debating whether he should pursue gaming or continue his studies, his South Korean teacher suggested he try out for the GSL preliminaries. He was able to make it through the qualifiers, and made his GSL debut that way. He resumed his studies after that, but felt that it just didn't fit him. His parents were very against it when he told them he would play StarCraft II professionally, but with his brother's help he was able to become a progamer.
 Wings of Liberty
 First Year as a Minor Player (Sep 2010 — Sep 2011)
TaeJa's first official StarCraft II match took place in the GSL Open Season 1 in September 2010. Then a member of the South Korean clan NEX, he was granted a defwin in the first round, and met FruitDealer in the round of 32. The Zerg player, who would later win the entire tournament, handily won the series and eliminated TaeJa from the league. A month later, on October 18, NEX merged with clan Zenith to become team ZeNEX.
TaeJa, who had failed to qualify for GSL Open Season 2 and 3, found himself tied with twenty-one other players in the 2010 GSL rankings. GOMTV organised tiebreakers in December to determine which of them would be seeded in the upcoming 2011 GSL January Code A, and TaeJa failed to earn a spot. In January 2011, he was used by ZeNEX in the Zotac Team Invitational Season 2 Group Stage, delivering an unimpressive performance with a 2-4 record. In March, TaeJa failed to qualify for the 2011 GSL May, losing to SuHoSin in the preliminaries. At the end of the month, he was reported to have left team ZeNEX, and later joined SlayerS at an unknown date in April or May 2011.[when?] However, he didn't move into SlayerS team house, preferring his own individual practice routine. TaeJa made his first apparition in his new colors in the best possible way, all-killing his former team ZeNEX (beating Puzzle, CoCa, ByuN, and Kyrix) in the GSTL May (an achievement that would remain his most memorable moment with team SlayerS upon leaving it in March 2012). SlayerS eventually won the league, with TaeJa playing only one more game which he lost to Leenock. Later in May, he bested his teammates in the Clash of the Houses: SlayerS, hence earning a spot in the main event which featured a paid trip to the 2011 MLG Columbus for its winner. In this event, he made his way to the finals at the expense of MarineKing and GuMiho (who then was a Random player), only to narrowly lose to July and to miss his opportunity to attend a live foreign event.
TaeJa, who had still yet to qualify for the GSL Code A, attended the LG Cinema 3D Special League in June 2011 after winning his regional qualifier. His run in the tournament was short-lived though, as DongRaeGu eliminated him in the first round. Two months later, he finally qualified for the GSL at the expense of BBoongBBoong, earning a spot in the 2011 GSL August Code A (which would be his first participation in the league since the 2010 Open Season 1 more than a year before). TaeJa's debut in Code A were almost flawless, as he defeated TAiLS, sC and JYP in order to reach the semifinals. Before that match actually occurred, TaeJa achieved the second all-kill of his career, beating SocceR, Moon, ThorZaIN and NaNiwa of team F.United in the 2011 GSTL Season 1 group stage. This all-kill would be the only victory for SlayerS during this season of the GSTL, the team eventually ending up at the last place of its group. A few days later, on August 22, TaeJa was swept 3-0 by GanZi in the Code A semifinals, meaning that he would still have the opportunity of earning a Code S spot via the upcoming up & down matches played in early September. He placed first in his group, qualifying for the next Code S season. TaeJa was successful in the WCG 2011 Qualifiers as well, beating Sniper and GuMiho to proceed to the round of 16.
 Debut in Code S, Leaving SlayerS (Oct 2011 — Mar 2012)
TaeJa made his debut in Code S in the 2011 GSL October on September 28, being seeded in a group with Killer, DongRaeGu and Polt. He lost to the latter two players, hence placing last and dropping into the up & down matches, where he eventually recovered his Code S spot a month later. His run in the WCG 2011 Qualifiers group play came to an end on October 30 however, as he was knocked-out by Happy and Mvp. A week later, TaeJa entered the GSL November Code S, following a streak of good performances in Korean weekly online tournaments (he had indeed won six of the seven previous ESV TV Korean Weeklies). He placed third in his round of 32 group (beating NaDa and losing to CoCa and Oz), which, according to the new GSL format introduced this season, sent him straight into code A round of 32. In spite of a good start in Code A with a 2-0 victory over InCa, he narrowly missed his chance to immediately regain his code S spot as DongRaeGu defeated him 2-1 in the round of 24, and as he barely missed the second place in his up & down matches group.
In February 2012, before the GSL Season 1 kicked-off, TaeJa participated in the ESV TV Korean Weekly Season 2 Grand Prix #1, which boasted an invitation to the Assembly Winter 2012 in addition to its prize pool. He handily made his way to the playoffs, losing only one match in both group stages. TaeJa dominated the main bracket as well, making short work of Dream and aLive (3-0 and 3-1, respectively), before crushing jjakji 4-0 in the finals. His victory in this tournament awarded him a paid travel and accommodation to the Assembly Winter 2012 scheduled to take place a week later, for what would be his first participation in a foreign live event. TaeJa therefore flew to Helsinki, Finland, at the end of February to attend the Assembly Winter. He took the first place of his group in a dominating fashion, conceding a single game in the process (to elfi, while he defeated Jinro and Adelscott 2-0). He met Polt in the round of 16, and was eliminated by the former GSL champion whom ended TaeJa's winning streak against Terran players (which he had started during the ESV TV Grand Prix that had awarded him his Assembly seed). A few days after his return in Korea, TaeJa recovered his Code S spot as he defeated Squirtle in the 2012 GSL Season 1 Code A round of 24 (he had made his way to this last round at the expense of HyuN and Lucky earlier in the month).
On March 13, TaeJa left SlayerS along with GanZi, expressing his willingness to pursue an opportunity in a foreign team. He later explained that he considered that foreign fans were very passionate and active, achieving a better atmosphere than in Korea, which surprised him at the Assembly as a lot of people asked him for autographs. TaeJa was eventually picked up by Team Liquid two weeks later, a transfer that was described by the team's CEO Nazgul as "Liquid's biggest acquisition in history". The South Korean player explained afterward that he had been introduced to Liquid's officials by a tournament organiser from ESV TV, and that he planned to visit the oGs-TL house for practice now and then but would still live at home most of the time. TaeJa made his first appearance under Team Liquid's colours a few hours after the announcement of his transfer, as he played his round of 32 pool play in the 2012 GSL Season 2 Code S. He was put in a tough group with the reigning GSL champion DongRaeGu, renowned for his mastery of the Zerg-versus-Terran match-up, as well as TheStC and the former GSL champion jjakji. TaeJa was barely defeated by the latter in his first match, but managed to turn the tables as he overwhelmed DongRaeGu 2-0 and beat jjakji in their second encounter, therefore securing a spot in the round of 16.
 Increased Presence in the Foreign Scene (Apr — Jul 2012)
In early April, TaeJa travelled to Las Vegas in order to compete in the IGN ProLeague Season 4 as an open bracket sign-up, which was the first North American tournament he ever attended. He made a good start, proceeding to his bracket finals at the expense of Killer and Maru, but failed to earn a spot in pool play as he was defeated by jjakji in this last match. TaeJa eventually dropped out the tournament after he was beaten by ByuN in their loser's bracket finals. At the end of the month, TaeJa played his 2012 GSL Season 2 Code S round of 16 group stage featuring the reigning, two-time MLG champion MarineKing, TheStC, and the Protoss-versus-Terran expert PartinG. He first met MarineKing, and was beaten 2-0, but nonetheless made it to the main bracket as he defeated TheStC and took revenge on MarineKing on the same mark. TaeJa's run in the GSL came to an end in early May, when he was crushed 3-0 by Squirtle in the quarterfinals. During the same period, he started appearing for Team Liquid in team leagues, in the Evil Geniuses Master's Cup Series VII group stage, delivering a good performance as he won five best of three's (including an ace match) and lost two.
In late May, TaeJa travelled across the Pacific again in order to attend the Red Bull Battlegrounds in Austin City, where he had been invited. He placed second in his group, losing to SaSe and beating ThorZaIN and his teammate Sheth. A narrow defeat against Bomber in the quarterfinals eliminated him of the tournament. TaeJa headed back in Korea in time to participate in Team Liquid's second match in the 2012 GSTL Season 2 first round. He didn't make a significant impact on the encounter though, as he was defeated right away by Tassadar and couldn't prevent his team from dropping out at this stage of the league. In June, TaeJa flew to Jönköping in Sweden in order to attend the DreamHack Summer 2012. He flawlessly made his way through the three group stages, suffering only one loss against SaSe. He was ultimately eliminated in the first round of the playoffs, bested by his teammate HerO. One June 21, TaeJa made his entry in the 2012 GSL Season 3 Code S. He placed second in his round of 32 group, eliminating AcE and Leenock in the process. The round of 16, played a week later, featured a tough group for TaeJa who was put with the reigning, four-time GSL champion Mvp, viOLet, and Seed (who would ultimately win this season). The eve of this group play, TaeJa had achieved the third all-kill of his career as he had taken down AnNyeong, BBoongBBoong, Creator, Maru and MarineKing in order to secure the win for Team Liquid against Prime in the IPL Team Arena Challenge 3. In the GSL round of 16, TaeJa beat Mvp, and lost to Seed in the winner's match. He eventually made it to the playoffs, defeating viOLet in the last match, therefore equaling his best result in the GSL so far. Before his next match in the prestigious South Korean league was held, TaeJa qualified for the IGN ProLeague Season 5 by winning its international qualifier, knocking-out Squirtle, MC, TheStC and Polt in the process. TaeJa played his GSL quarterfinals on July 11. His opponent there was MC, against whom he battled in a close series. The Protoss player eventually took the upper hand, winning 3-2 and eliminating TaeJa from this GSL season.
 First Titles, Carrying Liquid in IPL TAC (Jul — Aug 2012)
At the end of July, TaeJa attended the 2012 MLG Summer Arena in New York City, where he had earned his spot by placing third in the Korean qualifier (where he had lost to his teammate HerO). TaeJa handily made his way to the his bracket's finals at the expense of Dream, Welmu, GanZi and LosirA, and faced First for a spot in the grand finals. The latter player, a former Brood War progamer who had switched to StarCraft II in early 2012, was making here his second appearance in a live event after an unsuccessful run in the GSL Season 3 Code A. The Terran player took the upper hand and proceeded to the grand finals where he met another Protoss player, Alicia, who had placed second in the North American Star League Season 3 just a week before. TaeJa ultimately secured the series 4-2, hence winning a premier tournament for the first time of his career.
A week after this first major success, on July 27, TaeJa delivered another decisive performance for his team in the IPL Team Arena Challenge 3 (after his all-kill of team Prime in June). He was called as Liquid's ace as StarTale led 4-1, being one set away from victory, and achieved a 4-kill (defeating Life, Curious, Squirtle and Bomber) in order to overwhelm the South Korean team and send his own in the loser's bracket finals. Four days later, he carried Team Liquid in this latter match as well, achieving another 4-kill against SlayerS (defeating Genius, CoCa, Min and Puzzle) so that Liquid would make it to the grand finals. On August 2, TaeJa entered the Assembly Summer 2012 as a favourite, being the reigning MLG champion and on an impressive win streak in team leagues. He swiftly got passed the group stages, defeating MaNa (the reigning DreamHack champion at the time) in the process. In quarterfinals, he met his teammate HerO, whom had defeated him the two times they previously faced each other in competition, in the DreamHack Summer 2012 and in the 2012 MLG Summer Korean Invite-Only Qualifier. This time however, TaeJa was able to take the upper hand on his teammate, beating him 3-1 and proceeding to the semifinals. There, he bested ForGG on the same mark, and went to challenge MC for the title. The Protoss player, recent runner-up of the 2012 GSL Season 3, was eventually overwhelmed as TaeJa took the series 4-1 and won his second premier tournament in the span of two weeks, taking home a $13,000 prize.
The day after his coronation in Finland, TaeJa made his entry in the TeamLiquid StarLeague 4 (he had qualified for the event on the second attempt in the Korean qualifiers, and was, along with Ret, the only player of his team who had managed to do so) and faced Bischu in the first round. He took a 2-0 lead in this best of 5, but the Swedish player was able to come back and to force a decisive fifth game, which TaeJa won. A week later, on August 11, Team Liquid and Incredible Miracle faced each other in the IPL Team Arena Challenge 3 grand finals. TaeJa was called after Ret's loss in the opening game, and achieved an all-kill (defeating Seed, YongHwa, LosirA, NesTea and YoDa), his second in the competition and fourth overall in his career. However, since Team Liquid was coming from the loser's bracket, it had to win a second series in order to secure the title. This time, TaeJa entered the fray as Incredible Miracle led 3-1, and defeated First and YongHwa, but lost to Seed. The latter player ultimately secured the victory for team Incredible Miracle, while Team Liquid had to settle with the second place. Even though he wasn't able to make the difference in the second set of the grand finals, TaeJa's performance throughout the league was decisive for his team (which earned him the IPL Team Arena Challenge MVP award), with two all-kills and two 4-kills as well as an overall 23-3 record in games which was by far the best in the league, far ahead of Revival's 12-3 record (second best) and of Zenio's 8-5 record (second best for Team Liquid and fifth overall).
 String of Good Results (Aug 2012 — Present)
The day after the IPL Team Arena Challenge 3 grand finals, TaeJa played his TeamLiquid StarLeague 4 round of 16 against First, whom he had swiftly defeated 2-0 MLG Summer Arena a couple of weeks earlier and in the IPL TAC 3 finals as well. This time however, the Protoss player, who had thoroughly studied his opponent's playstyle from his recent showings at the MLG Summer Arena and Assembly Summer, emerged victorious of a tied series and ended TaeJa's short-lived run in the tournament. At the end of August, TaeJa attended the MLG Summer Championship as the reigning champion, being regarded as the favourite. Things started off on the wrong foot right at the outset for him, as he lost to CranK in the first round of the group play and therefore fell into its loser's bracket. He made his way through it at the expense of Illusion, Ryung and Revival, and met CranK again for an extended series starting at 2-1 in favor of the Protoss player. TaeJa was unable to turn the tables, and lost the series 4-3. He was subsequently seeded in the fifth round of the championship loser's bracket, from where he defeated LosirA, aLive, and Revival, before meeting his teammate HerO. TaeJa emerged victorious of their match, for the second time in a row after their confrontation in the Assembly Summer earlier in the month. His run was ended in the semifinals by First, whom had already eliminated him of the TeamLiquid StarLeague 4 two weeks before.
A couple of days later, TaeJa made his entry in the RSL Season 2 in a dominating fashion, placing first in his group with two 2-0 victories over Abver and Brat OK. On September 10, he made his debut in the GSL season 4 Code S as well, in a tough round of 32 group with Mvp, MMA and MaNa. TaeJa defeated the Polish player (still the reigning DreamHack champion at the time) and Mvp to top his group. His round of 16 group, played a week later, was also a tough one with Polt, DongRaeGu, and Rain. The latter, whose recent achievements had earned him the reputation of being the most successful player affiliated to the KeSPA since their switch to StarCraft II, handily beat the Terran player 2-0. TaeJa then turned the tables and defeated DongRaeGu and Polt, hence making it to the Code S playoffs for the third consecutive season.
At the end of this week, on September 22, TaeJa flew to Europe in order to compete in the DreamHack Open Valencia 2012. He easily made it to the main bracket (in spite of a defeat against NightEnD in the first group stage), defeating Stephano. TaeJa's run in the bracket turned out to be a seemingly effortless path to the finals, as he defeated 2-0 Bly, SaSe (whom he admitted beforehand to be a threatening opponent, due to him taking the upper hand on their previous encounters), and the upset of the tournament TargA (who had eliminated LucifroN and HerO in the previous rounds). He got off a terrible start in the finals though, as his competitor for the title, ForGG, took a 2-0 lead and stood one game away from the victory. TaeJa nonetheless achieved a spectacular recovery, winning the last three games in a row in order to beat ForGG to the punch, winning the DreamHack and being awarded a $10,400 prize.
In early October, TaeJa met Leenock, regarded as an expert in the Zerg-versus-Terran match-up and reigning MLG champion, in the GSL quarterfinals. TaeJa overwhelmed him 3-1, and made it to the semifinals of the South Korean league for the first time of his career. The next day, he lost to VortiX in the RSL Season 2 playoffs, dropping into the loser's bracket where he eventually forfeited the tournament. On October 9, Team Liquid's run in the IGN Pro Team League Season 1 Premier Division came to a premature end as the team placed last in its group. Compared to his outstanding 23-3 record in the previous season (the IPL Team Arena Challenge 3), TaeJa's performance in the league was quite unimpressive with two wins and three losses. The next day, he went on to play his GSL semifinals against Life, whom he had swiftly beaten every time they had previously faced each others. This time, the fifteen years old Zerg player crushed TaeJa, inflicting him a severe 3-0 defeat and pursuing his path on the royal road. During the series, TaeJa melt a massive build order lead in game two by lowering a Supply Depot as his opponent's Zerglings arrived on his base.
At DreamHack Winter 2012 TaeJa had a blistering run through the tournament, only to fall second to team mate HerO. He dominated his group 5-0, dropping only 2 maps against Snute, fraer, TheStC, elfi and Stephano. In the quarterfinals he faced ThorZaIN, which he won in a close 3-2. Advancing to the semifinals, he faced Nerchio, which he easily crushed 3-0. In the finals he faced HerO, which is the only time in the tournament he appeared to have floundered. His decision making and unit control were not on par with what we had become accustomed too and he was losing to builds he should not have done. This ended up with a heart melting 4-0 loss, as HerO made all the right moves.
In the NASL Season 4 TaeJa started off well, going 6-2 on series and 14-5 on maps, finishing him top of the group. The notable players in his group were MC, who he lost to 1-2 and Ryung, who he beat with a solid 2-0 victory. His first place finish advanced him to the Round of 16, where he faced MMA. If that match had been against MMA of one year ago, it would have been a very close call, but MMA is not the monster he used to be and TaeJa swept him up with a solid 3-0 win. In the Grand Finals in California, TaeJa had to face HerO in a rematch from DreamHack Winter 2012. Before this match, they had both won the same amount of series this year against each year, with HerO of course taking the most recent just weeks before. This Round of 8 match would be the tiebreaker, and HerO once again seemingly destroyed TaeJa. Every move TaeJa made was perfectly countered and HerO often had a build order advantage if not straight up win in all the games. TaeJa lost 0-3 and lost his chance of winning the tournament.
- His ID, TaeJa, means "heir apparent" in Korean.
- TaeJa's 23-3 record in the IPL Team Arena Challenge 3 was not only the best record of the season, but also the best of every season of the IPL team league, over ThorZaIN's 13-4 and KeeN's 9-0 in IPL Team Arena Challenge 1 and over jjakji's 11-3 and GuMiho's 11-4 in the IPL Team Arena Challenge 2.
