The once former coach for Longzhu Gaming (now Kingzone Dragon X), Kim Jung-su, has transferred to Invictus Gaming (IG). IG ultimately decided that coach Kim Jung-su was the most suitable candidate out of the coaches they were looking into. IG even personally visited Korea in order to negotiate terms with coach Kim Jung-su.
After joining IG, Coach Kim Jung-su has said: “Although I am a bit nervous, I know I only need to work as hard as I did before.”. Coach Kim Jung-su also commented: “The culture and food is completely different. While I do respect it, I am going to change some of the lifestyle habits and practice schedules in order to improve the result of my team.”.
While bringing Samsung Galaxy (now Gen.G eSports) to win second place in the 2016 League World Championships, coach Kim Jung-su has also risen Kingzone Dragon X to win the LCK championships. In other words, his leadership is well respected in the League Of Legends professional scene.
In addition, coach Kim explained: “I still feel the pressure. Alongside the help from coach Mafa, I will try my utmost to yield good results for my team.”.
To conclude, coach Kim showed his everlasting affection for his former team: “I still see and keep in contact with Kingzone Dragon X’s players and staff. Because they are such good players, I am sure both Kingzone and my team will perform well if we meet in a tournament.”.
Meanwhile, IG placed 4th place in the LPL Spring Split. Scheduled to play in 2018 Rift Rivals, IG will be up against SKT T1 if the format retains to that of last year. After groups, IG could possibly go head to head with coach Kim’s former team, Kingzone Dragon X.
