Yoon “SeongHwan” Seong-hwan will be leaving the LCK to join Beşiktaş Esports of TCL, sources announced on the 6th of February, Tuesday.
Beşiktaş Esports, on its official Twitter account, announced that “One of the promising junglers of the LCK, SeongHwan, is now a Beşiktaş player”. SeongHwan is expected to be sharing the jungle role with Gillius, who left the LEC to play in the Turkish League during the 2018-19 offseason.

SeongHwan debuted in the LCK in the 2016 Spring Split, making his name known for his aggressive plays and signature Elise pick. SeongHwan later transferred to ROX Tigers, a team that re-branded to Hanwha Life Esports in 2018 April.
At the beginning of the 2019 Spring Split, SeongHwan did not join a team and took a break, becoming a regular streamer on AfreecaTV. In a recent announcement, SeongHwan said that “Streaming wasn’t as easy as I had thought…I will be making a return to professional gaming sooner than anticipated.”
