Wang “Peanut” Han-ho has decided to stay in LCK for another year. Despite rumors and speculations of Peanut moving to a Western region such as LEC or LCS, on November 24th Gen.G announced that the team has signed with the top-tier jungler. In his Twitter statement, Peanut explained the reason behind his decision to stay in Korea for another year.
“Hi everybody! I was really considering to move to a foreign league after this season but after such disappointing performance at 2018, I wanted to regain LCK’s fame and recover from the painful memory of MSI. So I ultimately decided to stay in Korea.
I’m honored to join Gen G! Please keep cheering for me as I will once again, as always, try my best for a better year at 2019. Thank you and see you at All Stars <3″
