One of the biggest organizations in the LCK has completed its roster for the 2022 season with star mid laner Jeong “Chovy” Ji-hoon.
After a bunch of announcements over the past week, Gen.G has completed its roster by picking up Chovy from Hanwha Life. Chovy joins after playing with Hanwha Life for one year, where he played a big part in getting the team all the way to the 2021 World Championship. Now, Chovy will move to one of the top organizations in the LCK which has once again built a roster with the potential to win trophies.
Chovy will join his former teammate on Griffin Son “Lehends” So-woo while the team will still have star bot laner Park “Ruler” Jae-hyuk to lead the team in a consistent direction. With some of these new signings and Ruler staying, a lot is indicating that Gen.G will be playing among the absolute best next year.
The 20-year-old mid laner has been considered one of the absolute best in his role throughout the year and with good reason. Even though Hanwha Life failed to qualify for any LCK final this year, Chovy and the rest of the squad redeemed themselves in the LCK Regional Finals, beating Liiv SANDBOX and NS RedForce to secure a spot at Worlds.
All season long, Chovy was the deciding factor on Hanwha Life, and the big carry the majority of all matches. Now that Chovy is moving on to a better roster on paper for next year, it will be exciting to see how far he can take his talent. Chovy is still a young player that could develop even more and potentially win his first LCK trophy along the way.
Ruler is the only player from the 2021 roster that Gen.G has decided to keep. The rest of the squad will consist of new blood, where Chovy and Lehends are the two biggest signings. Furthermore, Gen.G has picked up former NS RedForce jungler Han “Peanut” Wang-ho who had a great summer split.
To round out the top side of the map, Gen.G has gotten its hands on Choi “Doran” Hyeon-joon, who played the 2021 season with KT Rolster. Even though KT didn’t manage to make any noteworthy results, Doran is a player that could still improve a lot under the right leadership.
