Following Lee “Aria” Ga-resignation eul’s from the squad in December 2021, the LJL’s DetonatioN FocusMe has confirmed the recruitment of mid laner “Yaharong” Chan-ju. This will be Yaharong’s first performance outside of South Korea.

The mid laner spent 2021 playing for Fredit BRION but was left to share the role with Lee “Chieftain” Jae-yub, and Kim “Lava” Tae-hoon. The team finished the LCK 2021 Spring and Summer splits with a 5-13 record, placing ninth and 10th. The LJL will kick off next month on Feb. 11. The schedule for the league has yet to be revealed by Riot Games Japan.
