Jeon "Lilac" Ho-jin (Hangul: 전호진) is a coach for Suning Gaming.

Biography

Jeon "Lilac" Ho-jin, in terms of experience, is one of the oldest Korean players in the game. After playing for the amateur Team OP whom he started playing for in 2010, he joined Incredible Miracle 2 in early 2012 as their top laner, after being approached by the teams coach, when he was ranked fourth on the soloqueue ladder. Lilac has changed his role several times during his professional career, from toplane to support, back to top, then to jungle, and finally once again to top, though he has remained with the Incredible Miracle organization during his entire pro career.

Season 1

Lilac played for his first competitive team when he joined Team OP in 2010 as their top laner under the name "a Lilac". They only played in one major tournament, the Newegg Winter Wanfest 2010, where they placed second after making it to the finals through the loser's bracket and winning the first set against Counter Logic Gaming 2-0 but losing the second set 2-1.

Season 2

Team OP stayed together and qualified for the first OGN tournament, Azubu The Champions Spring 2012. They placed fourth after making it to the semifinals and losing 3-1 to MiG Blaze and 2-1 to Xenics Storm. A Lilac left the team on May 7th, 2012 to join the new Incredible Miracle roster. A Lilac was moved to support before the start of Azubu The Champions Summer 2012 but they failed to make it past the group stage. They earned Team OP's circuit points because they had 3/5 of the same roster so they qualified for the Season 2 Korea Regional Finals. They beat CJ Entus 3-1 in a tie breaker but lost 3-1 to NaJin Sword in the first round. A Lilac moved back to top after the tournament for the World e-Sports Masters 2012 in China. They placed fourth after losing 1-0 to Invictus Gaming in the 3rd round of the loser's bracket.

Season 3

Incredible Miracle started the new season at OLYMPUS Champions Winter 2012-2013 where they made it to the quarterfinals but lost 3-2 to Azubu Blaze. They then flew to Brazil to play in IEM Sao Paulo where they won the whole tournament after beating Anexis eSports 2-0 in the finals. A Lilac moved to jungle before the start of the IEM Season VII - World Championship where they failed to make it past the group stage. They qualified for OLYMPUS Champions Spring 2013 but failed to make it past the group stage again. IM renamed themselves at the end of the season to Incredible Miracle 1, 2 months after Incredible Miracle 2 was formed. A Lilac moved to IM2 on June 17th, 2013 as their jungler and he renamed himself to "Lilac". He played his first OGN with the team during HOT6iX Champions Summer 2013 but the team only won one game and failed to make it through the group stage.

2014 Season

Lilac left the team in October of 2013 to rejoin IM1 but only played with them in HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014 where they couldn't make it past the group stage. He moved back to IM2 at the end of the tournament to play with them as their top laner for HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014 but they barely missed getting out of groups to get to the playoffs.

2015 Season

Changes to the OGN rules forced IM1 and IM2 to merge to create Incredible Miracle. Lilac became the starting top laner after IM1's top laner, Smeb, left the for the HUYA Tigers. They played in SBENU Champions Spring 2015 and ended up placing seventh and missing playoffs. IM was forced to play in the Champions Summer Promotion Tournament and they qualified for SBENU Champions Summer 2015 after going 2-0 against Winners and Anarchy. Apple joined the team before the tournament to share the starting top position with Lilac. Expession joined in the middle of the season as the third top laner for Incredible Miracle. IM placed ninth in the regular season of Champions Summer and were forced to play in the LCK 2016 Season Spring Promotion. Incredible Miracle played the Dark Wolves in the promotion tournament and beat them 3-1 to requalify for the LCK; however, Lilac did not play in these games.

2016 Preseason

IM competed in the 2015 LoL KeSPA Cup where they lost 2-1 against the Jin Air Green Wings in the first round. Lilac did not play in this tournament.
