He started playing rugby in his third year of junior high school. In his third year of college, he became a representative of the Korean Sevens.
In the 2019 men's qualifying sevens rugby match for Asia competing for the right to play in Tokyo 2020, in the finals, he seized the opportunity to turn the game to his team's favor, significantly contributing to Korea's victory and winning the right to play in the Olympics for the first time in the history of South Korean rugby.

PURPOSE

Goals for this season

Since we are going to have many matches this season, I will work hard so I can play in many matches and score many tries without getting injured.

ATHLETE'S MESSAGE

Do you have any good luck ritual before competing?

I do not do anything special before competing..
Like other players, I shower thoroughly and shave. After arriving at the pitch, I carefully stretch and massage my body.
