On November 19th, KT Rolster’s PawN announced via his Facebook that he will be a free agent. The following is a translation of the announcement.
I became an FA due to my contract with KT expiring after 2 years with them.
I would like to thank Coach ZanDarc, Coach Noexcuse, Coach S0NSTAR, and every KT staff member.
Also, I would like to thank Deft, Mata, Score, Ucal, Kingen, Tae Gwon, Mia, Rush, and Smeb for taking care of me.
I regret that I didn’t get to play many times in tournaments due to personal reasons and so I am sincerely sorry to my coaches, the KT staff, and KT fans for leaving without delivering any good performance.
I don’t know which team I’ll be playing for next year, but please root for me.
I am working diligently to accomplish the deep, personal endeavors that I have for the 2019 season.
I will be sure to come back better than ever.
