E-sports have become extremely popular throughout Asia and South Koreans are particularly keen to participate in these virtual events. The League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) is one of the most well-known competitions and ten teams are currently registered. Now that the spring competition has come to an end, what can we expect from some of the best supporters in the league? Let’s take a quick look at the top three players as well as what each brings to the table.

Kim “Life” Jeong-min

Most experts will argue that Kim has been defined by consistent levels of growth as a player since has early days. Primarily known for his stint with team Gen.G, he was ultimately responsible for leading his teammates to the Worlds in 2021. As he is also a relatively young player, the chances are high that his skills will continue to improve. It is likewise important to mention that Kim tends to come back stronger during the summer, so the upcoming splits should be quite promising.

Kim “Kellin” Hyeong-gyu

At a mere 21 years of age, Kim “Kellin” Hyeong-gyu is yet another rising star to keep an eye on. However, he was generally overlooked when he played for Jin Air Green Wings. Things soon changed when he partnered with Seo “deokdam” dae-gil from Team Dynamics. This was clearly apparent when the two enjoyed a successful split during the 2021 season. So, it is no surprise that the duo could very well take DWG KIA to the finals once again. In the event that they do indeed make it to the Worlds, will they be able to meet the expectations of their fans? These are some of the questions that will ultimately be reflected in the LCK scores themselves, so a bit of patience is in order.

Ryu “Keria” Min-seok

In terms of sheer talent, few would dare to deny that Ryu “Keria” Min-seok is the best of the best. Even as a rookie, he was already turning heads while playing for DRX. One of the features which sets Keria apart is what appears to be an ability to see the future while playing the Rift. He is also able to read what his opponents may be thinking; allowing them to fall victim to his unique luring strategies. These are some of the reasons why Keria is thought to represent an integral portion of team T1. the only possible issue is that T1 has been slightly struggling in recent times. We are forced to wonder whether this pattern will continue throughout the remainder of the summer splits. In the event that they do indeed take the regional title, how will they perform in the Worlds? Once again, we have to wait and see.

These are three of the numerous players which have come to define the LCK. As each is still quite young, it is a foregone conclusion that great things are in store. League of Legends fans should therefore keep a close eye on the latest news updates.
