Bio

 

Jae-Min "Knee" Bae — Tekken 7 player from Seoul, the Republic of Korea (South Korea). He was born on June 25, 1985. Knee is often regarded as one of the best players in Tekken history. He is currently signed with ROX Dragons.

Knee was always a fan of fighting games and used to play anything he could get his hands onto. However, with time, other franchises started to fade away or lose their presence in arcades while Tekken was going strong, which made Knee focus mainly on the Tekken franchise. Back then the concept of a professional player didn't really exist so Knee's main goal was "to be the best in Korea".

Eventually, Knee overshot that goal, becoming not just the best player in Korea but the best in the world, until finding a formidable rival in the face of Arslan Ash.

Even then, there's no player out there who can compare with Knee's extensive record of victories, game knowledge, and character mastery. One of his famous strengths is being able to play a wide variety of characters at high-level tournaments. While Bryan is his main and long time favorite character, Knee has been seen using Devil Jin, Steve, Paul, Feng, Dragunov, and many others during major events. Be it Tekken 5, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 or Tekken 7, he always remained a consistently fearsome competitor.

Some of his best results include winning EVO 2013, EVO Japan 2018, Combo Breaker 2018/2019, Tokyo Tekken Masters 2018, 2nd place at EVO 2016 and 2019. However, even when Knee doesn't take the 1st or top 3 placement, it's still rare for him to end up outside of top 8 for any tournament he enters.

You can find him on twitter and youtube.
