Violet was a Korean professional StarCraft: Brood War player. He played as Protoss and was a member of team KT Rolster. He made his debut in late 2007, starting out with small amounts of promise until a flurry of losses in Proleague caused him to drop to the KTF B-Team. While out of the spotlight, Violet played a few games occasionally in the Proleague and the GOMTV Classic, achieving minimal success. However, he caused quite a stir in 2009 with the start of Round 4 in the 08-09 Proleague.

Violet continued his streak in the 09-10 Proleague, not dropping a single game in Round 1 and leading a revival of the KT Protoss lineup. However, he was unable to maintain his streak and his play became much more erratic as the season wore on. Violet played poorly in individual league qualifiers, and his sole accomplishment in them was qualifying for the Round of 16 in the Bigfile MSL, where he was paired against his teammate Flash and lost 0-2. He remained a staple of the KT Proleague lineup and finished with a strong record. Violet stepped down as captain of KT when Reach returned from Team Air Force ACE.

On January 27, 2011, it was announced that Violet had been diagnosed with a form of Acute Leukemia and would be undergoing chemotherapy. After struggling with it for over a year, he passed away at the age of 23 on the morning of August 23, 2012.
