On the 17th, LNG Esports and JD Gaming announced that they’ve acquired Lee “Tarzan” Seung-yong and Jin “Mystic” Seong-jun, respectively.
Tarzan started his career in 2017 in Griffin and was considered one of the best junglers in the LCK. After Griffin was promoted in 2018, Tarzan contributed to the team to three 2nd place finishes in the league. In 2019, he reached the quarterfinals at the World Championship. However, he wasn’t able to stop Griffin from being relegated in 2020. Tarzan had a break in the summer season. Many LCK teams still rated Tarzan’s ability highly, but he chose to join the LPL.
Mystic was the bot laner for Afreeca Freecs this year. He is a player that spent more time in the LPL than in the LCK. Mystic played in Team WE for a long time before coming back to the LCK. After spending a year in Afreeca Freecs, Mystic chose to head back to the LPL in JD Gaming. He will be reunited with his former teammate, Su “xiye” Han-Wei.
