Kim has certainly left success in his wake. The last three teams that Kim Jung-su has joined have improved during his tenure as coach. At 2016, Kim was the coach for Samsung Galaxy and saw the LCK team end its season as 2016 Worlds Finalists. At 2017, Kim transferred to coach Longzhu Gaming and aided the team’s growth from a mid-tier LCK team to the 2017 LCK Summer Split Champions.

At mid-2018, Kim became the head coach for Invictus Gaming. Under Kim’s leadership, iG would grow from the 4th placed team in LPL Spring Split to 2018 World Champion in November 2018.
