Ryu Sang-wook has officially completed his compulsory military service in South Korea and is now eyeing a return to professional League of Legends, but this time joining the ranks of esports coaches within the circuit.
Ryu posted the following statement on his official Twitter page:
“Hey guys its been a long time since i tweeted i just wanna say that i discharged from army 2weeks ago feels awesome :), and now i wanna work as coach if you’re interested in me feel free to contact me!!”
Ryu, 28, first made a name for himself back in 2013 during his stint with KT Rolster Bullets, playing in the final of Champions 2013 Summer against SK Telecom T1.
Ryu then joined Europe’s H2K, where he would qualify for Worlds in 2015, and again in 2016, before heading to join Phoenix1 in North America.
Ryu played in NA until the 2019 LCS Summer Split and was a part of the 100 Thieves lineup that went to Worlds back in 2018.
Ryu parted in 2019 after the team failed to qualify for the Summer Split playoffs, retiring a year later so that he could complete his mandatory military service.
Ryu now eyes a return.
