It’s been confirmed that the legendary Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok has received death threats earlier this week.

Local police in Seoul responded to death threats against T1’s mid laner and vehicles were spotted outside the organization’s headquarters. A report confirmed that the Daejeon Metropolitan Police Agency is investigating a threat that was made against Faker’s life.

What happened to Faker?

It was reported that an individual posted online that he planned to go to the T1 dormitory “where Faker belongs and cut his wrist.”

The post was flagged by the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency and it’s now working with local forces to try and identify the individual who posted the threats. They are using IP tracking in hopes of locating the person and arresting them.

As the investigation picked up, the LCK dropped a statement on the situation. According to the tweet, the LCK is hoping to “strengthen LoL Park security” for the remainder of the Playoffs and Finals.

“The LCK appreciates everyone’s cooperation to provide a safe environment for fans and teams to enjoy the rest of the 2023 LCK Summer,” the statement read.

This shocking threat has only added to the tension ahead of the LCK Playoffs. Faker has been dealing with an ongoing arm injury this season but has returned with a new sense of determination. They will be facing off against Gen.G or Hanhwa Life Esports, whichever team wins the Playoff match today.
