Former DWG KIA top laner Jang “Nuguri” Ha-gwon has retired from professional League of Legends, according to reports.

This news was confirmed by League of Legends journalist Kang “Ashley Kang” Ji-hye, who shared the information through a Twitter post.

“Jang ‘Nuguri’ Ha-gwon, the former top laner of DWG KIA and FPX, 2020 World Champion, has decided to retire from the professional League of Legends scene,” she said.

The 23-year-old South Korean — who parted ways with DWG KIA on November 15 — started his career with I Gaming Star, where he launched his pro career in March 2017. Nuguri moved after an eight-month stint with the team and stayed with DWG KIA for over three years. He also joined FunPlus Phoenix in 2021, before rejoining DWG KIA in April of this year.

Nuguri was famed for his Vladimir skill and was a one-time MVP at the 2020 LCK Summer Finals. The top laner also participated in the just concluded LoL World Championship, in which his team came in fifth-sixth place, losing 2-3 to Gen.G in the quarterfinals.

Unlike other esports players that have recently retired and immediately jumped on content creation, Nuguri’s future is still unknown to the public.
