Kuro has retired as a player. On Dec. 9, Lee “Kuro” Seo-haeng announced through his Facebook page that he will be retiring as a pro player. Kuro said that becoming a pro gamer was the best decision he made in his life.
In his retirement message, Kuro said, “I lived my twenties quite decently, from 2013 to 2020, working hard and being tired. There were several times that was too exhausting that I wanted to give up everything while I was a pro gamer, but I think I was able to be active this long thanks to fans, family, friends, and colleagues.”
Kuro mentioned that he won’t be leaving the LoL scene. “I’m not leaving the LoL scene. I’ll be streaming, will be on Youtube, and after finishing my military service, I’ll be a coach. Although there is no more “pro gamer Kuro”, but I’ll see you on stream and as a coach.”
Kuro debuted in Incredible Miracle in 2013 and had his prime in ROX Tigers. He was one of the best mid laners in the LCK, as he won the LCK championship and a 2nd place finish at the World Championship.
Recently, two other legendary players, Lee “Crown” Min-ho and Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyeon also announced their retirements.
