Free Agent
Looking for new team
November 20, 2018
SoHwan has become a free agent after his contract with Jin Air ended.
SoHwan leaves after three years with Jin Air as he replaced former top laner, TrAce, in the 2016 preseason. SoHwan failed to win much with Jin Air and will look for a new opportunity ahead of the 2019 season.
Plays Darius twice to modest effect
July 12, 2018
SoHwan finished JAG's 2-0 win over BBQ with a 4/4/5 KDA in two games as Darius.
SoHwan ended Game 1 with a 2/0/3 KDA. He was unkillable, ending the game involved in five of eight kills while tying for the second-highest assist total and earning the second-most kills in Game 1. In Game 2, SoHwan earned a 2/4/2 KDA. He was involved in four of eight kills, ending with the second-highest kill total, but leading JAG with four deaths. SoHwan was involved in nine of 16 kills in the series.
Falters in failing effort vs Griffin
June 24, 2018
SoHwan posted a KDA of 2/3/2 in Jin Air's 2-0 loss to Griffin on Wednesday in the LCK.
SoHwan the Darius one-trick didn't do too much against Griffin, with the rookie team's top laner holding him in check throughout the series. SoHwan's Game 1 wasn't spectacular, getting bullied early on by Sword's Jayce, finishing with a meager 0/1/1 KDA. In Game 2, SoHwan again got dissected in the 1-vs-1 matchup, but this time against an Ornn, which usually shouldn't happen. Perhaps SoHwan can shrug off a slow start, perhaps he'll learn other champions and be able to give Jin Air more flexibility in the draft, but a performance like the one he turned in against Griffin puts him in the discussion for worst LCK top laner, which is the last thing Jin Air needs right now.
Low impact in late game fights
June 18, 2018
SoHwan scored a 3/6/6 KDA in Jin Air Green Wings' 2-0 loss to Hanwha Life eSports on Saturday.
SoHwan had a good start in Game 1 as his Camille secured first blood but wasn't able to get much else done. Jin Air briefly held a gold lead in the mid game but got absolutely destroyed in the key late game teamfights. SoHwan finished with only one kill and one assist in Game 1. He was able to do a little better in Game 2 but struggled again to do much in the late game teamfights. While he did manage to get some good split pushing done in Game 2 late it came at the cost of losing objectives and Baron on the opposite side of the Rift. SoHwan could do little to stop the Baron power play from finishing off the series.
Low kill participation not a factor
March 7, 2018
SoHwan finished Wednesday's sweep of KDM with a 4/0/8 combined KDA.
SoHwan ended Game 1 with a 3/0/2 KDA as Cho'Gath. He was involved in five of nine kills, tying Teddy for the team-high kill total. In Game 2, SoHwan used Ornn and earned a 1/0/6 KDA. he was involved in 50 percent of his team's kills, but had the lowest kill and assist totals on the team. SoHwan was unkillable across the two games, but finished with the team-low kill participation total after being involved in 12 of 23 kills.
Perfect kill participation in loss
February 1, 2018
SoHwan finished JAG's 0-2 loss to KT with a 3/5/14 combined KDA.
SoHwan ended Game 1 with a 3/2/8 KDA as Trundle. He was involved in all 11 JAG kills, leading the team with eight assists, while coming second in kills with three. In Game 2, SoHwan used Gangplank and finished with a 0/3/6 KDA. He was involved in all six kills, leading JAG with six assists. Despite being swept, SoHwan ended the series involved in all 17 JAG kills.
Plays both sides of Gnar matchup with ease
January 24, 2018
SoHwan ended Wednesday's sweep of MVP with a 3/1/7 combined KDA.
SoHwan finished Game 1 with a 2/1/2 KDA as Gnar. He was involved in only four of Jin Air's 14 kills, primarily split-pushing as opposed to teamfighting. He did finish Game 1 tied for the second-highest kill total. In Game 2, SoHwan used Ornn to end with a 1/0/5 KDA. He was involved in half of the team's kills, finishing tied for the second-highest assist total while being unkillable in Game 2.
Re-signed by Jin Air
November 21, 2017
SoHwan will be sticking with Jin Air Green Wings going into the 2018 season, the team announced Tuesday.
While Jin Air retooled its roster a bit with the release of Kuzan, Raise, SnowFlower, and ikssuu, SoHwan was safe from the roster cutdowns. While he didn't see much playtime in the 2017 season, the team has doubled down on the player going into the new season. With the team finishing in 7th place in the Summer Split, any improvement will likely be seen as a success for the new roster.
Lucky to win with subpar performance
August 3, 2017
SoHwan had a rough go vs. EEW on Wednesday, netting a meager 4/5/7 KDA.
The summation of SoHwan's play vs. EEW was simply overextension. While playing both Gnar and Jayce, he routinely found himself in positions he could not fight his way out of. As we've seen, Gnar can take over games easily, which is why SoHwan's zealousness to dive is understood. Still, his lack of awareness of where he was regarding item breakpoints was concerning. In Game 2, he played the hard carrying top laner of Jayce and got off to a hot start by securing first blood. From there he was largely ineffective as he completed the game by going 0/2/2. The best thing about his marksman play was controlling waves in the lane, ensuring that he kept Kiin way down in creep score.
Decent series despite loss
July 28, 2017
SoHwan posted a 4/7/5 KDA in Jin Air Green Wings' 1-2 series loss to Longzhu Gaming on Thursday.
SoHwan played a game of Jayce, Renekton, and Gragas. SoHwan didn't put up any positive statlines except in Game 2, but that doesn't mean he played a bad series. In Game1, SoHwan attracted a lot of attention early on from Longzhu, and he ended up outearning and outdamaging his lane opponent in Khan. In Game 2, when Jin Air followed up SoHwan's damage, good things happened. A victory was eked out despite Longzhu being the best team in Korea at the moment. In Game 3, SoHwan tried to be the reliable engage and laning beast that Gragas has the potential to be, but smart laning by Khan and proactive Flashes by Longzhu kept the Gragas effect to a low amount.
Can't stand up to Smeb
June 13, 2017
SoHwan ended Game 1 of JAG's loss to KT with a 1/2/1 KDA as Fiora.
SoHwan was unable to match Smeb in the laning phase, falling behind early and never recovering. With Smeb and KT snowballing quickly, SoHwan lacked any real impact on Game 1. SoHwan was substituted out in favor of ikksu for Game 2.
Drops Game 1 and is replaced
March 28, 2017
SoHwan ended Jin Air's Game 1 loss to Afreeca with a 0/2/3 KDA as Shen.
SoHwan picked up two assists taking out KurO twice in the mid game and an assist in the first teamfight of the game. He struggled to really make many global plays by using his ultimate as Jin Air trailed from an early stage and never recovered. SoHwan was benched in favor of ikssu for Game 2.
Brought in for Game 2 against ROX
March 3, 2017
SoHwan earned a 0/4/3 KDA on Maokai in JAG's Game 2 defeat against ROX.
After falling early on in lane, SoHwan struggled to recover against ROX. After being put at a sizable disadvantage he had an extremely difficult time getting much of anything done. After dying once more, he was able to bring picking up some assists in hectic skirmishes. Unfortunately, these were not the skirmishes his team needed as they often found ROX coming out drastically ahead. Unable to find any way for his team back into the game, he was forced to concede objectives and watch as ROX pushed into his base. After losing a final teamfight, JAG was defeated in 30 minutes, giving ROX the 2-0 series victory.
Comes in to back up ikssu
February 15, 2017
SoHwan went 5/9/17 in Games 2 and 3 of Jin Air Green Wings' loss against Kongdoo on Wednesday.
SoHwan came in for ikssu during their series against Kongdoo and had an immediate impact on the game. He started off with a massive CS lead over Roach in the top lane and used that to control his lane all game long. He used Jayce's Shock Blasts extremely well to help his team in the key teamfights used to gain control of the game. While his impact was a bit limited late, JAG was able to lock up the final teamfight to send the series to Game 3. He chose Rumble in the final game. Despite being down in CS in his lane early on, he helped get a kill on Roach when UmTi came up for a gank. He had another special moment later in the game where he turned around a 2-vs-1 to make it a 2-for-1 in his favor once he got some help from a teammate. He also was the top damage dealer in the game, but even that wasn't enough to secure the win.
Subbed in for Game 2
February 8, 2017
SoHwan ended Jin Air's Game 2 loss with a 2/5/6 KDA as Maokai.
Subbing in for ikssu after Game 1, SoHwan suffered the same fate as his compatriot top laner. He picked up a kill and two assists in the second teamfight and a kill and three assists in the third teamfight. He helped Jin Air mount a small mid-game comeback, but it wasn't enough to stop KT from finishing the sweep.
