[TMI Interview] DRX Chovy: "These days, beating Doran in solo queue makes me very happy"

 

The mid laner for DragonX, Chovy, is a man with many records within the LCK. From being the first professional player to have 100 KDA, many LCK finals appearances, and even once at Worlds, this 19 year old mid laner continues to build his legacy as one of the greats in LoL esports.

 

Inven had a chance to speak to Chovy for our ‘TMI Interview’ series. As he continued on his hunt for his first LCK title and the World Championship trophy, he showed sides to himself that reflected his 19 year old self, as well as his love for his teammates (especially Doran, in a very... interesting way).
