ABOUT LEE "FAKER" SANG-HYEOK
Lee "Faker" Sang-hyeok was only a junior in high school when he first received an offer from a pro League of Legends (LoL) team due to his outstanding performance in solo rank. Despite his brilliant talent in the game, Faker was originally hesitant to go pro as it wasn't a common career choice back then.
However, after receiving advice from his teacher who encouraged him to "show his skills and talents", Faker decided to take the big leap and commit to being a pro gamer. Indeed, this turned out to be a fantastic decision, as Faker's achievements as a professional gamer have been nothing short of legendary, winning three world championships in 2013, 2015, and 2016 respectively—a feat shared by only one other player.
Add to that his dozen or so 1st place finishes in other premier tournaments, and it's not hard to see why Faker is widely regarded as one of the greatest League players of all time, earning nicknames such as the "Unkillable Demon King" and "Faker, Faker Playmaker".
