Lee ‘Kuro’ Seo-haeng has announced his decision to retire from the competitive League of Legends scene. The 26-year-old, who has been a part of the scene since 2014, has finally hung his boots, or in this case, his mouse, mousepad and headphone after an undesirable stint with KT Rolster last season.

The Korean organisation failed to qualify for the League of Legends World Championship in 2020, finishing 6th in the regular season of LCK and even finished last in the Regional Finals, losing 3-0 to Afreeca Freecs.

Kuro’s best season as a midlaner came when he was part of the ROX Tigers team in 2016. The organisation were favourites for the 2016 League of Legends World Championship but fell short to LoL powerhouse SKT in a best-of-five in the semifinals.

Kuro may be bidding the competitive scene adieu, but only as a player as per his statement. The 26-year-old is ready to take the up mantle of being a coach but only after he has completed his military service.
