Korean soloist Daniel Kang is apparently good friends with League of Legends World’s champions T1, particularly with bot laner Park “Teddy” Jin-seong.
Fans were surprised when Daniel’s voice emerged during Teddy’s livestream. Daniel, Teddy, Moon “Cuzz” Woo-chan, Lee “Effort” Sang-ho, and Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok all teamed up to play a couple of ARAM (All Random, All Mid) matches in League of Legends.
Known for his hate for insects, Daniel Kang’s League of Legends in-game name “난 모기가 싫다” translates to “I hate mosquitoes.”
Throughout their games, Daniel confessed that he has been playing League of Legends way back since 2012 according to a fan-translated tweet. He is a top laner, and even gave fans an idea of his playstyle by using the champion Darius in their ARAM game.
The short match ended with a victory led by this four-man Tempered Fate from Teddy’s Bard.
The K-pop star revealed that he and Teddy virtually stumbled upon each other on the Rift, and then later on hung out in real life. On the day that T1 won a championship (the LCK Spring Split Playoffs, perhaps?), Teddy even came to Daniel’s house to play.
Daniel was also starstruck when he played with three-time Worlds champion and LoL icon Faker. He even asked for an autograph from the esports superstar.
Another K-pop star, Zion.T, says he looks up to Faker on his recent Instagram post.
With Daniel playing League of Legends on a live stream, will we also see his girlfriend Twice’s Park Jihyo in the Rift soon?
