2021 LPL & LCK Off-Season: Chovy to Gen.G, Bdd to Nongshim

The 2021 LPL and LCK off-season has been wholly chaotic, which was to be expected — we’re talking about two regions with the absolute best and most sought-after players the world of competitive LoL has to offer.

Keeping track of it all is quite a tedious task and, well, it is made ever more complicated by the unrelenting onslaught of rumors and unverified reports. Fortunately, with the off-season slowly but surely reaching its end, the bigger picture has finally started to appear.

There’s a lot of ground to cover, so let’s get down to the nitty-gritty!

2021 LPL & LCK Off-Season | Roster Changes Galore

  • Choi “Doran” Hyeon-joon, Han “Peanut” Wang-ho, Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon, and Son “Lehends” Si-woo have all joined Gen.G for the 2022 competitive season, as previously reported. This team, in short, has all the hallmarks of a bona fide titan. Whether it’ll end up leaving a mark regionally still remains to be seen (DWG KIA and T1 are still a cut above), but anything other than a Top 3 finish would be a debacle. All in all, keep an eye on Gen.G going forward as they’re going to pack one heck of a punch!
  • Gwak “Bdd” Bo-seong has been traded for Peanut and will compete for Nongshim Redforce going forward. He’ll be joined by Lee “Dread” Jin-hyeok, Lee “Effort” Sang-ho, and probably T1’s Kim “Canna” Chang-dong, too.

Closing Remarks

Even though a large number of signings have been made official, there are still many moving pieces, especially in the LPL. We’ll be back with another breakdown once the dust settles! Based on the way things are unfolding, we’d be remiss if we didn’t say that 2022 looks like another spectacular year for the LPL and LCK. They’re currently atop the world of competitive League and, by the looks of it, they won’t relinquish their enviable position any time soon!
