Today on Twitter, KT Rolster top laner Kim “Ssumday” Chan-Ho confirmed on his Twitter that he would no longer be a part of KT Rolster.
Hello, This is former KT Rolster Top laner SSumday. I am a free agent now and looking for a team. Please contact me via email.

Ssumday was considred one of the best top laners in the world during 2016, and will be a highly sought after free agent. His full statement can be found translated via Slingshot’s Andrew Kim.
It has also come to fruition that mid laner Song “Fly” Young-Jun is no longer part of the team as well and is also a free agent.
According to KT Rolster’s press release, the the Ssumday and Fly did not renew their contracts because they both wanted a new environment. Last week, KT lost AD carry No “Arrow” Dong-hyeon and support Ha “Hachani” Seung-chan.
KT Rolster’s roster is currently looking light, with only Go “Score” Dong-Bin filling the role of jungler. Rumors place a “superteam” as KT Rolster’s next squad, with a roster of Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho, Score, Heo “PawN” Won-seok, Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu and Cho “Mata” Se-hyeong, but this is currently purely speculation.
What team will take on Ssumday and Fly? Will the superteam happen for KT? Leave your comment down below or tweet us @GAMURScom.
