Park began his coaching career in late 2018, with South Korean team WGS Armament. He helped the team secure the second place of the Overwatch Contenders 2019 Season 1 Trials in Korea; finishing the season in 5-6th place.
He then joined O2 Blast and kept on collecting podiums. The team ended up in second place during the Overwatch Contenders 2019 Season 1 Korea; as well as at the Overwatch Contenders 2019 Pacific Showdown. The 2020 Season was even more prolific for O2 Blast — with the team winning the Overwatch Contenders 2020 Season 1 Korea.
Park is joining the Washington Justice a few days after Seung-jun "Sup7eme" Han was promoted to Head Coach of the team. This signing confirms the team's desire to go from an international roster to a fully South-Korean staff and player crew.
The Washington Justice will face the Overwatch League reigning champions of San Francisco Shock tomorrow.
