Won ‘PartinG’ Lee Sak is a Protoss player from South Korea.

In the group stage of the 2012 World Championship, PartinG defeated both Socke and Illusion by a score of 2-0 to take 1st place in the group. In the round of 16 PartinG defeated Scarlett 3-0. In a hard-fought Quarter-Finals he defeated Suppy by a score of 3-2 after being down 0-2 after the first two games. In the Semi-Finals, PartinG defeated Sen 3-0 to reach the World Championship finals vs Creator. While the two Protoss players split the first four games of the best of seven, PartinG won the next two to win the series 4-2, thereby winning the 2012 World Championship.

PartinG’s run in HotS started at 2013 MLG Winter Championship. After defeating teammate FanTaSy in Showdowns he got seeded into bracket ultimately coming out in 5th-8th place before going back to Korea to play in GSL.

In WCS Korea Season 1 GSL, PartinG topped his group. In the group selections for the Ro16, he chose the arguably strongest group ever in the history of SC2 including himself, INnoVation – who was compared to an invincible robot at the time, Life – who had just won 2013 MLG Winter Championship, and Flash – who just beat PartinG at MLG. After losing his initial match to Life, PartinG was able to recover and win against both Flash and Life to advance into the playoffs. In the playoffs, PartinG met Soulkey and lost the first 2 maps convincingly. After winning two scrappy games, PartinG lost in the decider and got eliminated into Placement matches, where he lost to RorO 1-3 and was not able to qualify to WCS Season 1 Finals.

In WCS Korea Season 2 OSL, PartinG was able to overcome the Ro32 again, however he was swept in Ro16 with a combined map score of 1-6, but as able to secure his spot in Season 3 GSL in Ro24 Challenger League.

PartinG played in the TLMC qualifier with enjoyable and sometimes, even weird, maps and was able to secure his spot at Red Bull Battle Grounds New York City. He had a very strong performance in New York by going undefeated and conceding only three maps to win his first Premier Tournament since his WCGwin 11 months beforehand.

In the WCG Korean qualifiers, PartinG swept the bracket and got seeded into main event a second time in a row. After winning Battlegrounds, PartinG said that he was not worried against anyone but Soulkey at WCG, and all his thoughts were about playing him in the finals. He was able to sweep his group with a 12-1 mapscore, sweep Ian in the quarterfinals, but then lost to Sora. He had to play Jim in the Bronze final, and after winning, he got third place, securing an all-Korean podium.

On September 11th, 2014, he announced that he declined to re-sign a new contract with the team SK Telecom T1. He officially left on September 30th. He joined yoe Flash Wolves on October 16th, 2014 and this also meant what he he would play with his old team StarTale in the 2015 season of Proleague.
