Bang was born on May 18, 1996 in South Korea. He currently lives in Seoul.
Bang started with NaJin White Shield back in 2012. He then joined Xenics Blast in 2013 before he became part of the SKT organization as the starting AD Carry for SK Telecom T1 S. When LCK restructured at the end of the 2014 Season, Bang became the starting AD Carry for SK Telecom T1 as Piglet left the organization to play in the NA LCS.
In October of 2013, Bang joined the new roster of SK Telecom T1 1 as the starting AD carry. A few months later they were renamed to SK Telecom T1 S. The team's first tournament was PANDORA.TV Champions Winter 2013-2014 where they dropped out in the group stage. Again at their next tournament, HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014, S failed to pass the group stage. Their breakthrough came at HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014 where they made it to the semifinals and placed 4th after losing 3-2 to the KT Rolster Arrows and 3-0 to Samsung White.
Bang’s new team were one of the top contenders throughout 2015 LCK Spring and even went undefeated throughout the second round robin of the season, earning them second place overall and automatic placement into the semi-finals of the playoffs. SKT’s semi-final opponent CJ Entus jumped out to a 2-0 lead when the two teams met in the LCK Playoffs before Bang and his teammates managed to turn the series around and force a fifth and final game which they have won.
The LCK victory also granted SKT a place at the Mid-Season Invitational, an event where the winners of each region competed in a dress rehearsal of the World Championship to come. The team were undefeated again in the group stage but suffered far more difficulty in their semifinal match up against European juggernaut Fnatic. After a narrow 3-2 win they proceeded to the finals where they faced the powerhouse from China, Edward Gaming, whom defeated Bang and team.
Domestically however, SKT had not missed a beat and went undefeated in match wins through the first round robin of the 2015 LCK Summer Season.
Bang and SKT had a good start in 2016 as they won IEM X World Championship after beating Fnatic (3-0). They then finished 3rd in the regular split of 2016 LCK Spring but won the entire tournament after dominating ROX Tigers in a 3-1 victory. SKT proceed to winning the 2016 Mid-Season Invitational against Counter Logic Gaming (3-0).
The team placed 2nd in 2016 LCK Summer then lost to KT Rolster (2-3) in the playoffs. However, KT Rolster failed to beat ROX Tigers in the finals, thus giving SKT the chance to be one of the representatives of LCK for the 2016 World Championship which they have won (for the 3rd time) after beating ROX Tigers (3-2) in the semifinals and ending the series 3-2 against Samsung Galaxy in the finals. Moving forward, the team had to face ROX Tigers again in the semifinals of the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup where the team's effort fell short and losing the best of 3 series (0-2).
For the 2017 Season, Bang will continue to play for SKT as the starting AD Carry.
- At the 2015 Season World Championship, reached 73 cumulative KDA from the start of the tournament until partway through SKT's first game against AHQ after dying only once in the group stage (71 overall group stage KDA and then 2 kills in the SKT-AHQ game). His KDA streak was broken by AHQ support Albis, who killed him after interrupting a Rocket Jump with Flay.
- Was 16-0 on Kalista until they lose against Afreeca Freecs in Week 6 of 2016 LCK Spring.
- Scored his 1000th kill after killing Mata during their match against KT Rolster in Week 6 of 2017 LCK Spring.
