Hanwha Life Esports announced on the 27th of November the signing of Lee “CuVee” Seong-jin as their new top laner for the 2020 LCK season.
CuVee has been part of Gen.G Esports for the past 4 years, spanning across multiple different roster iterations. A former World Champion, he is regarded highly for his performance on international stages, having made it to two World Championship Finals consecutively.
HLE had recently concluded a disastrous season, finishing in 9th place during the Summer split regular season. After successfully promoting back to the LCK, the team made sweeping changes across both coaching staff and player lineup, hinting at a major rebuilding for the offseason.
CuVee will be joining his old teammate Haru in HLE. Having previously played together under Gen.G, the inherent synergy between them will likely prove useful for Hanwha Life Esports next season.
