SKT officially signs Huni and Profit

Three time world champion team SK Telecom T1 has officially signed a new top laner.

SKT made the announcement through their Twitter account on Thursday, and seemed to have finalized their roster for 2017. The new tops laner Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon and Kim Jun-hyeong will be the line up in the top lane for SKT.

Both players have big shoes to fill as SKT has recently parted ways with their world championship top laner Lee “Duke” Ho-seong. As the arms race for League Champions Korea’s 2017 season is ramping up, SKT is entering it with a formidable roster.

Huni previously had a try out with SKT in 2014, but failed to make the cut. Since then he had previously played in Europe’s FNATIC and North America’s Immortals. Huni has made quite a name for himself with his aggressive plays that seems to favor carrying champions, and has garnered much of the North American fans’ respect.

Profit was a trainee for SKT previously and made his successful debut during 2016’s KeSPA Cup. Although a new face to SKT, Profit managed to impress the team with a solid performance, and many are excited to see just how far he can be polished.
