Gen.G have announced the signing of one of SouthKorea’s best mid laners right now, Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon.
The South Korean League of Legends team, Gen.G, have decided to rebuild their roster around Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk. According to the latest announcement, the team have finalized their roster for the upcoming LCK season. Gen.G have signed Chovy, one of the best mid laners in the world to form a competitive roster.
Chovy joined Griffin in 2018 to start his professional League of Legends career in South Korea. At first, he was so successful and the Korean mid laner managed to show his potential under the Griffin uniform. However, he had to leave the team in 2019 and joined DRX, where he met Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu. After reaching the quarterfinals in Worlds 2020, he left the team to join Hanwha Life Esports with Deft.
Chovy reached the quarterfinals once again this year before leaving his team. He parted ways with HLE at the end of the year. Chovy has found himself a new home now. He will be playing for Gen.G during the upcoming LCK season. There were many rumors about him and finally the strongest rumor came true.
Before signing Chovy, Gen.G kept Ruler within the roster. Choi “Doran” Hyeon-joon, Han “Peanut” Wang-ho, and Son “Lehends” Si-woo were the other players Gen.G have signed for the upcoming season. Doran, Chovy, and Lehends were teammates a couple of years ago. They used to play for Griffin together. Peanut and Ruler haven’t played with others or each other before.
