One of South Korea’s most talented mid laners has found a new home.

Chovy is the latest addition to a revamped Gen.G League of Legends team. After keeping the same team for two years, the org is retaining just one starting player, Ruler, from the Worlds 2021 roster that reached the semifinals.

The 20-year-old has been regarded as one of the finest mid laners in the world since bursting onto the scene with Griffin in 2018. In his most recent stint with Hanhwa Life Esports, Chovy led the roster to a Worlds 2021 berth, clinching the final slot in the LCK regional finals after a disappointing Summer Split that saw Hanwha Life finish eighth. The team fought their way from the play-in stage to the playoffs, falling 3-0 to compatriots T1 in the quarterfinals.

Going into next season, Gen.G is bringing back superstar jungler Peanut to the org, while Ruler will maintain his ADC position. Top laner Doran and support Lehends round out the team alongside Chovy.

Heading into the 2022 LCK Spring Split, Gen.G’s revamped roster will look to break the recent regional dominance of DWG KIA. The org will be in pursuit of an LCK title after falling tantalizingly short in the springs of 2020 and 2021.
