Yoon ‘TaeJa’ Young Suh is a professional Terran player from South Korea, who is currently playing for Team Liquid.
Without any competitive background in e-sports, TaeJa began his progamer career during the summer of 2010 and remained a relatively unknown player for roughly ten months despite qualifying for the first ever season of the GSL. He started to make a name for himself after he joined team SlayerS in May 2011, as he achieved two all-kills in the GSTL and made his first appearance in Code S at age sixteen in the GSL October. Toward the end of the year and in early 2012, he completed a string of victories in ESV TV Korean Weeklies, but found himself unable of delivering noteworthy performances in offline events as well, dropping into Code A in December.
TaeJa signed for Team Liquid in March 2012, and rose to prominence during the next months. During the summer, he carried his team to the finals of the IPL Team Arena Challenge 3, achieving an unprecedented 23-3 record in the league. He became successful in individual tournaments as well starting this period, winning the MLG Summer Arena, the Assembly Summer 2012 and the DreamHack Open Valencia 2012, and reaching the semifinals of the MLG Summer Championship and of the GSL Season 4 – Code S.
In 2013, TaeJa earned over $105,000 in prize money alone. 2013 was truly the year of TaeJa as he scooped up 5 major tournament victories, and another four top 4 finishes.
TaeJa entered the 2013 WCS Global Championships seeded at #11. He was unable to defeat his first round opponent, Dear, losing the series 1-3.
