Riot Games’ flagship title, League of Legends, has caught the curiosity of NewJeans.

Particularly, NewJeans Hanni, seems to have become invested in the video game. She made the big reveal at the Worlds 2023 finals media day, which took place on November 15 in Seoul, South Korea.

League of Legends is Riot Games’ multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game where two teams of five play different champions to try and destroy each other’s Nexus. It is one of the most popular games not just in South Korea, but the whole world.

While the other members haven’t really tried playing the online game, Hanni has already figured out which roles they would best fit in.

Minji would play jungle because she said she wanted to try it out.

Hanni described Haerin and Danielle’s teamwork as “good,” so the two of them would become a duo in the bot lane.

With Hanni in the top lane playing as Garen, that leaves the mid lane for Hyein.

“Hopefully, we win (with this team),” Hanni said.
