Sang Won was a 24 year old conscripted military unit when the outbreak started. As a child he gained the name from his parents getting information leaks between North and South Korea. Being named after an actor in South Korea. The North Korean government eventually found out about this leak and his family were sent to labor camps or executed depending on how much each individual knew and how loyal they were to North Korea. As Sang Won was only 12 years old at the time of this he went through conditioning for five years. He learned to resent the name and even given a usual Korean-American changed name as Anthony. Although he despised it for the rest of his life. After the five years, he was conscripted into the military as all men are forced to. The seven years of grueling training day in and out. Calloused hands, bruised knuckles, having your entire body sore, but solid. Anthony hates it. Anthony wants out. With many of his squad mates sharing the same intensive they escaped northwards to China. This escape would be risky as china is known for deporting any North Koreans back into the country. However with the help of many "Free North Korean" activist he managed to move his way into Russia. For a while he rested, joyful of his escape. However he doesn't take this time to settle down. In fact he moves South Eastward to distance himself with any ties with North Korea to settle down later. However it was then the Outbreak started gaining global news. As a North Korean escapee, he didn't know much foreign languages, but he knew when there was something seriously wrong. These infected individuals were feral. He has enough experience to kill then and not get infected himself. As a North Korean soldier he knows how to survive on his own. He was even taught to plant and produce his own food to survive off the land. Something in the news kept repeating. The word Chernarus. believing it's a safe haven and as he can't read much of anything else he assumes its a safe zone and is extremely close by as he was moving close to there to begin with. Unfortunately his luck was the downfall of him. Somehow he managed to go without having any more infected encounters and is further pushed into Chernarus as it seems clear with infected. When he is deep in however he gets corner by the horde. He pushes himself out and gets to a safer area. Unknowingly he has surrounded himself in one of the most infected places on earth. Chernarus. At first he wanted in. Now his only goal is to get out.
