With the inaugural season of the Overwatch League in the books, the coming months give each team, including the two new additions with Atlanta and Hong Kong, an opportunity to make some changes to the current team and staff. Gen G’s Seoul Dynasty are doing just that, announcing their new Head Coach Donggun “KDG” Kim and Assistant Coach Chang Geun “Changgoon” Park for the upcoming season.
KDG has plenty of eSports experience as a former pro StarCraft player and coach of the now non-existent Mosaic Esports and 6nakes, a team made up of former Mosaic Esports players and staff. Changgoon already has experience in the Overwatch League as the coach that led the London Spitfire to take the first Grand Finals victory.
This new addition comes after the organization moved the previous Head Coach, Hochul “Hocury” Lee, up to General Manager of the Seoul Dynasty. In a statement made by the new GM, he said, ” I feel really good about the team and coaching staff we’re constructing for the 2019 season. We are putting all the pieces in place to win and we all look forward to getting to work.”
Gen.G eSports Chief Growth Officer Arnold Hur seems to share the same sentiments stating, “In KDG and Changgoon, Hocury and our organization are thrilled to have found a coaching tandem with the same vision of how to build a team.” He continues by saying, “we’re confident that under their leadership, all our players will develop a winning mentality and set us up for success in Overwatch League this season.”
The Seoul Dynasty was one of the most dominant teams at the start of the inaugural season of Overwatch League. As told in our first Overwatch League Wrap-Up back in January, it seemed nothing could stop Ryujehong, Fleta, and the rest of the squad. However, by the end of the season, they placed 8th finishing with a 22-18 record with a +13 map differential.
