On the 26th (KST), Hanwha Life Esports announced through their official Facebook page that they’ve signed Kang “Haru” Min-seung as their jungler and Lee “Sake” Jung-hyuk as a coach.
Last season, Haru played in SK Telecom T1, but didn’t have many appearances on stage. He previously played in Gen.G alongside Kang “Ambition” Chan-yong. Sake was a legendary Heroes of the Storm player.
Hanwha Life Esports commented on signing Haru and Sake that “We hope that Haru, who has a sharp and smart play style, will be able to add more aggressiveness to Hanwha Life Esports. Also, with the previous career of being a legendary player of ‘Heroes of the Storm’, the new coach Sake will help strengthen mind, mentality, and analyze the strength of a professional esports player based on his experience. Please give lots of support and love for the two new members.”
Hanwha Life Esports had a devastating summer LCK season. They fell 9th and had to participate in the promotions/relegations match.
