In 2016 Yoon "Runner" Dae-Hoon was a popular Korean Overwatch streamer who had an ambition of running his own esports team at the professional level, this led to the creation of Overwatch team RunAway who joined Korea's APEX competition from the first season. Alongside his wife Lee "Flowervin" Hyuna, Runner has led RunAway from little known team, to Contenders Korea season two winners and being one of the most loved teams in the entire Overwatch scene.

From Team Manager To Grand Final Winning Coach: The Journey Of Chang-Geun “Changgoon” Park

The story of Changgoon's rise as a coach is one of the most interesting stories within the whole of the Overwatch League. GC Busan coming through the APEX season four challenger scene as an amateur team, didn't at the time have the player or coach names that would allow many to see them as a  contender, let alone a threat outside of head coach Ho-Cheol "Hocury" Lee. After they lost one of their main coaches in Jeong-Min "JFeel" Kim to rival organisation Kongdoo Unica. They took a unique approach when they turned in house for help from Chang-Geun "Changgoon" Park who was the teams manager at the time. It was an unorthodix approach, but one that worked out for the best for both GC Busan and Changgoon himself.
