Lira, Thal, and Sangyoon join new Korean team Seorabeol Gaming
Three pro players and one streamer gathered to discuss League of Legends and a new organization was born: Seorabeol Gaming. The team already has recruited three members in former Hanwha Life Esports players Sangyoon and Thal and former Dignitas player Lira.
The team is looking for a mid laner and a support to begin their initial run. The organization is currently recruiting players out of solo queue. The newly formed team will attempt to qualify for Challengers Korea and from there earn a spot in the LCK. The road to the LCK won’t be easy, as the teams in Challengers Korea are improving every year and have slowly been taking over the LCK in recent years.
LCK veterans ready to compete at Seorabeol Gaming
Sangyoon is coming out of his brief retirement to join Seorabeol Gaming. The former captain of Hanwha Life Esports announced his retirement back in October, and the organization held a retirement ceremony on October 24 in which they put Sangyoon’s uniform up for display at the organization's training facility.
Thal, a former T1 player, was part of Sangyoon’s team in 2019.
Lira is joining the team after a World Championship run with Clutch Gaming. The jungler has been playing in North America for the past three years and is returning to the Korean competitive scene for this new project. Lira and Sangyoon played together in 2015 with Rebels Anarchy, the team that would end up becoming Afreeca Freecs.
Seorabeol Gaming is already getting attention and support from the fans who are excited to see this combination of players together. The organization has time to put together a roster and get some practice before attempting to compete, unless they can rush the process and be ready to play in the 2020 CK Spring Qualifiers that start on December 15.
