Park Jihyo, leader and main vocalist of superstar k-pop girl group, Twice, recently revealed her big love for Riot MOBA League of Legends after being introduced to the game last year by Twice’s fan group, Once.
After picking up the game, Jihyo has apparently been playing it whenever she has the time, as she admitted in a recent interview with Allure magazine.
“I’m always tense and cautious about how people see me. But when I’m playing online games, I can feel the truest to myself. Nobody can judge me through [the screen]. That’s why I feel most comfortable,” said Jihyo.

According to a tweet from last September, Jihyo first tried out Veigar in an AI match.
Jihyo is just one of the many k-pop idols who are also gamers in their free time. Global superstars Bangtan Sonyeondan (BTS) have also declared their love for League of Legends.
