Young Jae “RallyJaffa” Jeon


Hello. I’m a Seoul-based freelance writer who is perfectly bilingual in English and Korean. I specialize in writing about esports, particularly its people and stories.

I have closely followed the scenes of various competitive games for nearly two decades, including StarCraft: Brood War, Warcraft 3, Defense of the Ancients, League of Legends, StarCraft 2, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch.

Currently I contribute weekly to ESPN and Blizzard Entertainment. Organizations I have worked with in the past include Tempo Storm, Inven Communications, Tempest, and L5.
