Damwon Gaming announced on the 23rd of November that they have parted ways with Kim “Kim” Jeong-soo.
In their announcement, Damwon Gaming explained that their contract with their former coach had ended, meaning Kim is currently FA.
Kim is well known for his involvement with several successful teams, including Samsung Galaxy, Longzhu Gaming, and Invictus Gaming. Having led Invictus Gaming to their crowning as World Champions in 2018, Kim left soon after, joining instead the recently promoted Damwon Gaming.
With Damwon Gaming, Kim was able to once again focus on the strong solo lane talents the team possessed, with Nuguri and ShowMaker taking over the LCK as one of the best in their respective roles. With Kim as their coach, Damwon was able to make it to Worlds in their very first LCK season, an impressive feat.
