- Gen.G midlaner Bdd donates 5M Korean won to COVID-19 victims
- LCK to be postponed indefinitely after Spring Split R1
A week ago, GEN.G’s mid laner Gwak “Bdd” Bo-seong donated 5 million Korean won (~US$4, 100) to victims of the COVID-19 coronavirus on his 21st birthday.
These donations come at a time of surging COVID-19 cases in South Korea. The number of infections has now gone beyond 5,000.
The spread of the coronavirus has also caused LCK to be postponed indefinitely. The league will go on hiatus after the end of Spring Split Round 1.
