League of Legends pro Yongin “CoreJJ” Jo might be married to the game, but not legally.
The Team Liquid support announced this morning that he has married his longtime girlfriend. Fans of CoreJJ likely recognize his partner, as the two have been public for a long while.
“I’m happy to have someone more precious than myself in my life,” CoreJJ tweeted.
We got married!

The fall was a rough season for CoreJJ, as he was visibly upset over Team Liquid’s loss at Worlds 2020. The team was eliminated in the group stage with a 3-3 record. This undoubtedly helps to turn things around for him..
“NA lost the shiniest star we had. And this star will become a new galaxy,” CoreJJ tweeted at the end of October.
