    (CNN)For Lee "Infiltration" Seon-woo, the path to becoming a professional gamer wasn't an easy one.

      His love for gaming grew from there, but it wasn't until his first overseas competition in 2010 that Lee started contemplating a career in eSports.
      Drawn by the bright lights and big crowds at the Evolution Championship Series (EVO) in Las Vegas, he began to plot his gaming destiny.
