Lee “Grace” Chan-ju and Park “Nova” Chan-ho are two returning members from last year. While criticised for their occasional poor plays, this can be attributed to their lack of experience. Both players have just completed their first season in 2018.
Heo “Lindarang” Man-heung was a former Hanwha Life Esports toplaner. Well regarded as a solid player, his presence will provide stability for the team.
Kim “Malrang” Geun-seong replaces UmTi and Kakao as the only jungler for Jin Air. He has spent a majority of his year in Turkey, finishing in top 2 for Royal Bandits. While he had recently failed to make it LCK with Winners eSports, a CK league team, his potential is yet to be fully explored.
Lee “Stitch” Seung-ju has recently appeared in 2018 World Championship as AD Carry for G-Rex. With the team having made history as first LMS 3rd seed to make it to the group stage, Stitch’s part in this has been impressive. With his international experience, it is to be seen how he will lead his team to success.
Jin Air has also opted to add amateurs to their roster. This includes Lee “TaNa” Sang-wook, who has been introduced by Topsports Gaming’s AD Carry Lee “LokeN” Dong-wook as his younger brother. Choi “CheonGo” Hyeon-woo is also a known talent in the Korean scene, popular for his skills with Zed. To finalise the roster, Moon “Route” Geom-su and Kim “Kellin” Hyeong-gyu have been signed.
이번에 제 친동생인 타나 이상욱이 진에어 그린윙스의 탑으로 입단하게 되었습니다 비록 신인이지만 많이 응원해주세요~~ㅎㅎ https://t.co/HMWxT6snPx

With Jin Air rebuilding their roster, the team hopes to fare better than their previous years, having undergone dangers of relegation for the majority of the year. With star talents such as Park “Teddy” Jin-seong gone, it is up to the resourcefulness of the coaching staff and the abilities of the players to find success in the new LCK season.
