Kingzone DragonX will be starting three new players in 2019 after the departure of its starting roster.

New faces are joining Kingzone DragonX for the new LCK season. Former KT Rolster players Heo “PawN” Won-seok and Kim “Deft” Hyuk-kyu are joined by former Afreeca Freecs support Park “TuSin” Jong-ik as now members of the team.

The organization shared the news through social media after it was confirmed that Gwak “BDD” Bo-seong and Kim “Khan” Dong-ha had left. Kingzone was in negotiations with both players but could not ultimately come to an agreement.

Bdd joined KT Rolster while Khan was announced as part of the new SK Telecom T1 roster. Weeks before, former stars Han “Peanut” Wang-ho, Kim “PraY” Jong-in, and Kang “GorillA” Beom-hyeon had parted ways with the organization.

Together, the five players at Kingzone found domestic success but failed to repeat that success on the international stage. In 2019, Kingzone is reinventing itself with help from Deft, PawN, and TusiN.

Deft and PawN joined KT Rolster in 2016 after two years spent with Edward Gaming. PawN took a brief break in 2018 to recover from an injury. KT Rolster won the LCK summer split in 2018 and attended the World Championship. Despite being among the favorites at the event, the team was beaten by eventual champion Invictus Gaming in the quarterfinals.

Considered one of the best supports in the LCK, TusiN joins Kingzone after two years with Afreeca Freecs. Afreeca was reputed as a mid-tier Korean team until 2018 when the organization took its competition by storm. A strict training regime and ten-man roster helped power the squad to their successes. The team qualified for the World Championship but was eliminated by American side Cloud9.

TusiN, Deft, and PawN will be playing alongside jungler Moon “Cuzz” Woo-chan.
