Fly Domestic Career
Song “Fly” Yong-jun entered the LoL scene in season 3 under the name SongJinRi. His team—CTU Revolt—participated in HOT6iX Champions Summer 2013 Qualifiers but fell short after losing 0-2 to Xenics Storm in the final round. Afterward, Fly joined Chunnam Techno University, although he didn’t play a single game for them.
A year later, Jin Air Green Wings Stealths signed Fly as their starting mid laner. The team attended the HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014 tournament, going 4-2 in the group stage and qualifying for the playoffs. However, their run was cut short when they fell 0-3 to Samsung Blue in the Quarterfinals.
They also took part in the NLB 2014 Summer event where Jin Air Stealths reigned supreme in the group with back-to-back victories against Mook Secret and KT Bullets. They met their sister team—Jin Air Falcons—in Quarterfinals and scored a confident 2-0 victory over them. In the Semifinals, Stealths clashed with SKT T1 K, losing in a close 5-game series.
Despite decent results, Fly ended up leaving Jin Air and joining Invictus Gaming. However, he didn’t play any games for them before being moved to IG’s sister team, Young Glory.
Their first event was the 2015 Demacia Cup Spring Season. Young Glory had an underwhelming showing, losing 0-3 in the first round against Vici Gaming. They performed much better in the 2015 LSPL Spring Season, finishing in second place in their group and qualifying for the playoffs. Unfortunately, they lost 1-2 defeat to AD Gaming in the first round of the competition and went to the loser’s bracket. There, Young Gaming bounced back with a 2-0 victory against Oh My Dream. Unfortunately, they couldn’t keep this momentum going and lost to Legend Dragon in the following round.
This result made them eligible for the 2015 LPL Summer Promotion Tournament. However, their run came to a swift end after a 0-3 loss to Star Horn Royal Club.
The 2015 summer brought little change to their narrative. Despite a confident win over Energy Pacemaker.Carries at the 2015 Demacia Cup Summer Season, Young Glory crumbled in the following series against Vici Gaming. And while they managed to top their group in the 2015 LSPL Summer Season, they couldn’t gain much ground in the playoffs, ending the season in sixth place. The subsequent 2-3 loss to RNG in the 2016 LPL Spring Season Promotion Tournament sealed the deal. And so, Fly left the team to look for greener pastures.
In the off-season, Fly went back to Korea to join KT Rolster. The team showed up in spring, going 13-5 over the regular season and qualifying for the Semifinals. There, they suffered a devastating 0-3 defeat to SKT T1, thus finishing the split in third place.
Still, KT didn’t get the loss get to them. They entered summer with high hopes and produced another 13-5 record. Unfortunately, they fell behind SKT T1, which meant they had to start their playoffs in the Quarterfinals. KT crushed their first opponent—Samsung Galaxy—and went on to defeat SKT T1 in a close 5-game Semifinals. In the finals, they fell to ROX Tigers with a 2-3 score. This loss meant that KT didn’t have enough Circuit Points to qualify for the 2016 World Championship, so they had to go through Regional Finals. But even though they were seeded directly to the finals, they suffered a crushing 2-3 defeat in a rematch against Samsung Galaxy.
In spring, Fly went to Longzhu Gaming. The team had a shaky showing in the 2017 LCS Spring Split, and its 8-10 record meant that Longzhu would miss out on the playoffs. This made Fly depart from the organization and move to North America to join Gold Coin United (GCU) in the 2017 NA CS Summer Split. With the help of his roam-heavy playstyle, GCU went all the way to the Promotion Tournament before suffering back-to-back losses against Phoenix1 and eUnited and getting knocked out of the competition.
When the franchising system was announced, Fly joined FlyQuest for the 2018 NA LCS season.
