Jae-Hyeok "Carpe" Lee
The fish that plays Overwatch. Capre of the Philly Fusion made himself a household name over the course of season 1 of the Overwatch League. At the start of the season he was one of the best Tracers and as the meta shifted so did he. He moved over to the Widowmaker and was one of the most dominate. Now he brings that skill to the national team.
Seong-Hyun "Jjonak" Bang
The Fragyatta himself, Jjonak from the NYXL takes his talents to the national team. Coming into season 1 of the Overwatch League Jjonak wasn't that well known. Then he showed that he was the best Zen in the world. He always seemed to lead his team in damage throughout the season. He brought a dynamic to the NYXL that helped be one of the more dominant teams in the League.
Tae-Sung "Anamo" Jung
Anamo didn't really get to play much with how well his counterpart in Ark played through most of the season. But as Stage 4 of the Overwatch League rolled through Anamo got more playing time and showed that he was just as good as Ark. He plays Mercy and Lucio mainly and with the meta that we are currently his hero pool is great for team South Korea as they head into BlizzCon.
Best of luck and safe travels to team South Korea as they scrim, practice and make their way to BlizzCon.
