The announcement comes one month after his initial move to the bench of the starting roster.

Rb signed with the then- Vision Strikers Vision Strikers Inactive stax Kim Gu-taek (김구택) Rb Goo Sang-min (구상민) Zest Kim Ki-seok (김기석) BuZz Yu Byung-chul (유병철) MaKo Kim Myeong-gwan (김명관) roster back in June of 2020 as the first Korean organization to enter Valorant. He, alongside the rest of the Korean MVP PK CS:GO roster, all joined VS in an early swap from Counter Strike to Valorant, accompanied by current DRX members Kim "Zest" Ki-seok (김기석) and Kim "stax" Gu-taek (김구택).

Under his three-year-long tenure with the Vision Strikers core, Rb helped bring home an 102-0 undefeated streak, alongside a collective five regional championships and multiple international qualifications, culminating with a top-three finish in Champions 2022.

Leading into the first year of partnerships and the transition to DRX, the team would fail to reach their previous strides throughout the year in comparison to their results from the seasons prior. Despite initial promise and a placement into the top-four in LOCK//IN, the beginning of the Pacific league and onward would spell unfortunate for the Korean side, losing twice against Paper Rex Paper Rex Asia-Pacific Unranked mindfreak Aaron Leonhart f0rsakeN Jason Susanto d4v41 Khalish Rusyaidee something Ilya Petrov Monyet Cahya Nugraha in the VCT Pacific Playoffs for the first time ever to end off placing second in the Pacific. Their regional finish was followed up by an all-time lowest for DRX with a top-eight finish in Masters Tokyo and a familiar top-six finish in Champions 2023. The final event for DRX in 2023, the AfreecaTV VALORANT League, resulted in losses to Sentinels Sentinels North America Unranked TenZ Tyson Ngo Zellsis Jordan Montemurro zekken Zachary Patrone johnqt Mohamed Amine Ouarid Sacy Gustavo Rossi and Paper Rex to be eliminated in the group stage, and spelling the inevitable end of Rb's reign with the organization.
