Seoul Dynasty players Ryu “ryujehong” Je-hong and Baek “Fissure” Chan-hyung have entered the coaching business. Their first client? Taiwanese American K-pop artist Amber Liu.
Liu joined the two Seoul Dynasty players at a PC bang in South Korea for a Gen. G video called “Starwatch.” The two players were surprised when a celebrity showed up, ready for coaching. Liu tweeted about the video on Sept. 20. “The cursing monster took over my body for a bit… so grateful for beeps,” she wrote. “Watch me fail at Overwatch while Seoul Dynasty’s Ryujehong and Fissure try to save my already dying gaming career.”
The K-pop artist told Fissure and ryujehong that she’s a silver-ranked player who plays Orisa and Zenyatta. Her problem? Her aim. But after playing with the two South Korean player in the 11-minute video, she learned that she’s actually pretty good at Orisa.
But it’s not the first time the Seoul Dynasty players have met Liu. “Amber visited us when we were playing at Overwatch League in the states,” ryujehong said. “When she visited our practice room I was nervous then, but I was more nervous today because a celebrity was playing right beside me.”
The off-season isn’t all fun-and-games for the Overwatch League team. Seoul Dynasty has dropped a number of its players from season one, including Kim “KuKi” Dae-kuk, Koo “xepheR” Jae-mo, Gong “Miro” Jin-hyuk, Choi “Wekeed” Seok-woo, and Heo “Gambler” Jin-woo. Only six players remain after Seoul Dynasty picked up Fissure from Los Angeles Gladiators. All teams must have eight players under contract by Dec. 1. There’s no start date for the Overwatch League’s second season.
