Top laner Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon said that he made initial contact with SK Telecom T1 about joining the team in the offseason in an interview with Fomos’ Choi Min-sook after SKT’s League Champions Korea season opener on Wednesday.
“I took the SKT entry test two years ago, but MaRin (Jang Gyeong-hwan) was too good, so I ended up going to Europe,” he said. “I joined by contacting SK Telecom T1 first as I returned to Korea.”
There seemed to be a bit of skepticism from the League of Legends community when Huni was announced as part of SKT’s 2017 roster, but he started the season with solid performances in SKT’s games Wednesday and played a large part in SKT’s 2-0 win against the Jin Air Green Wings.
“Many fans were concerned when they heard I was joining SKT,” he said. “I feel good because I think I played well in my first match (with SKT).”
SKT plays its next match Sunday against the returning Kongdoo Monsters.
