Kim "Key" Han-gi is a Korean League of Legends player, currently playing as support for Hanwha Life Esports. He was formerly known as TML.

Career History

KeY was a former member of Xenics Storm and Energy Pacemaker.Carries before he started competing with Ever in Challengers Korea. The team's first try in getting into the LCK was a failure, as they lost against SBENU Sonicboom in the Promotion Tournament. But since they finished 2nd in Challengers, the team qualified for LoL KeSPA Cup 2015 finishing 1st after beating Samsung Galaxy in Ro12, Rebels Anarchy in quarterfinals, SK Telecom T1 in semifinals and CJ Entus in the Finals. With this win, the team got invited in IEM 10 Cologne. KeY and Ever finished the tournament at 1st, beating EU LCS team H2k-Gaming in the Semifinals and LPL team Qiao Gu Reapers in the Finals.


KeY's international events did not stop at Cologne. As they have won the said event, the team qualified for IEM 10 World Championship in Katowice, Poland. However, they failed to make it out of the group stage as they lost against Royal Never Give Up and Team SoloMid.

Back in Challenger, the team dominated the competition by winning the Spring Playoffs against MVP. This gave them another chance to try and qualify to the LCK, which they fortunately succeeded after beating SBENU Sonicboom.

KeY then debuted in LCK Summer. However, they finished the split at 9th place and had to go through the Promotion Tournament yet again to secure a spot for 2017 Spring. They faced SBENU Sonicboom and defeated them, but lost against Kongdoo Monster. Fortunately, the team was able to overpower CJ Entus, beating them in a 3-0 victory and securing Ever's spot for the upcoming split.

For 2017 Spring, however, KeY chose to part ways with Ever to seek new opportunities. He was then picked up by ROX Tigers where he will be playing alongside league veteran Shy and former Afreeca Freecs players Mickey, Sangyoon, Seonghwan and Lindarang.
