Nuguri is headed to the LPL. On the 17th, FunPlus Phoenix announced that they’ve signed Jang “Nuguri” Ha-gwon, confirming that the rumors and teaser were true.
Nuguri has been evaluated as the biggest free agent in this stove league. Since his debut, his splendid mechanics and ability to carry caught the attention of many fans. With added experience, Nuguri gained the stability he lacked and stood as the world champions this year in DAMWON Gaming.
FunPlus Phoenix was the champion of the 2019 World Championship. They aimed to continue their triumph by signing Kim “Khan” Dong-ha, but they were eliminated in LPL’s Regional Qualifiers and fell short of Worlds. After the season, they parted ways with their top laners, Khan and Kim “Gimgoon” Han-saem, and signed Nuguri in their place.
