NYXL Flex Support Bang "Jjonak" Sung-hyeon dazzled the competition on Zenyatta in the inaugural season of the Overwatch League. For winning the 2018 OWL MVP award, Overwatch is immortalizing his achievement in the form of his own skin.
The Zen-Nakji Legendary skin sports an octopus-themed aesthetic, as Jjonak roughly translates to 'Octopus' in English. Jjonak's love of sea creatures, personified in his tattoo of on octopus with Zenyatta's orbs, looks like the clear inspiration for the Overwatch design team's most recent creation. The orbs on the skin are also miniature octopi to double down on the deep sea aesthetic.
Jjonak's teammates had a generally positive reaction to getting a first look at the skin. "I think it would feel dirty to get hit by those orbs," said NYXL DPS Kim "Pine" Do-hyeon. NYXL DPS Park "Saebyeolbe" Jong-ryeol agreed, saying it would feel 'moist' to be the target of the skin's orbs.
Jjonak instantly became a fan favorite for his aggressive Zenyatta play on NYXL, often dealing damage reminiscent to a 3rd DPS due to his proficiency and precision on the Omnic monk. The Zen-Nakji legendary skin will be avaiable for 200 tokens — around $10 worth — from June 27th to July 14th.
