MaRin joins the Afreeca Freecs

The long anticipated destination to one of Korea’s most famous players has finally been revealed.

The Afreeca Freecs announced Monday on Twitter the signing of Jang “MaRin” Gyeong-hwan.

MaRin is most well known for winning the 2015 League of Legends World Championship as SK Telecom T1’s starting top laner. Also noted as the MVP of that year’s world championship, MaRin was in high demand across all regions. He was capable of both carrying the team and making shot calls as one of the team leaders.

MaRin spent this season with Chinese team LGD Gaming, and his performance in China wasn’t as impressive in comparison, with LGD failing to do well during the spring season and was at threat of relegation in the summer split.
