SK TELECOM T1 SIGNS ROOKIES THAL, BLOSSOM
SK Telecom T1 has signed top laner Park “Thal” Kwon-hyuk and jungler Park “Blossom” Beom-chan, the organization announced in a tweet on Monday.
The team was looking for a new top laner after Heo "Huni" Seung-hoon heft SKT for Echo Fox and Han 'Peanut' Wang-ho moved to Longzhu Gaming, which has been renamed as Kingzone DragonX.
Both Thal and Blossom, who will be joining SKT for the upcoming Spring Split of the League of Legends Champions Korea, have relatively little experience.
Thal is the more experienced of the two, having participated in the European Challenger Series Summer Split as part of team Red Bulls. Earlier, Thal was a substitute at teams APEX Pride and ZTR Gaming.
SKT’s new jungler Blossom has never played competitively.
SKT’s next match will be with ROX Tigers, as part of Week 1 of the LCK Spring Split, which begins on January 17.
