Kim "kkOma" Jung-gyun was previously the Jungler and Team Captain for StarTale and is currently is the coach of SK Telecom T1.

Biography

Prior to playing League of Legends, kkOma played StarCraft 2 under the name "LittleBoy" and played for Team Old Generations. After unsuccessful attempts at qualifying for GSL Code A, he quit StarCraft 2 to play League of Legends for StarTale. In April of 2012, kkOma was cut from StarTale for "irreconcilable differences in opinion."

kkOma spent the next few months streaming LoL and making regular guest appearances on OnGameNet’s LoL related programming. By the time SKT contacted him about a coaching position, he had already built up a decent following, enough so that kkOma considered SKT’s offer underwhelming, and hardly an obvious choice. He accepted, but only under one condition: he would be allowed to recruit a second team. A second team, he thought, was the only way to win a championship. SKT agreed. With that, he recruited Faker, Impact, Poohmandu, Bengi, and Piglet to form the SKT T1 K.
