Kim "Ares" Min-kwon (Hangul: 김민권) is a coach for bbq Olivers.


2015 Season

Kim "Ares" Min-kwon was on the roster for ShowTime from August 2014 to February 2015 but he never played any games for the team. He joined Incredible Miracle in February 2015, halfway through the spring season of Champions, replacing Wisdom. IM finished in seventh and were sent to relegations. However, he left the team prior to the start of the Champions Summer Promotion Tournament.[1] Ares joined KT Rolster as a sub in June but he didn't play any games for them before leaving.

2016 Preseason

Ares joined Ever after their LCK Spring Promotion Tournament loss to SBENU. His first tournament with the team was the November KeSPA Cup, where Ever shocked audiences by not only advancing to the semifinals with victories over Samsung and Anarchy but then upsetting SK Telecom and CJ Entus in back-to-back sweeps to win the entire tournament and secure Korea's only seed to IEM Season X - Cologne. However, after the tournament, mid laner Athena departed the team, and so their IEM Championship lineup was unable to play together again.

2016 Season

At the time of competing at IEM Katowice (which they had an invitation to due to winning IEM Cologne), Ever were in second place in Challengers, after losing a series 0-2 to MVP. Despite a round-one surprise upset win over Team SoloMid, Ever lost to Royal Never Give Up and then a rematch series against TSM to be eliminated before the playoff bracket.

After coming back to Korea, ESC Ever continued to perform well in the Challengers Korea 2016 Spring Season, finishing second place in the regular season with 27 pts. After beating Ever8 Winners 3-1, they beat MVP 3-2 to win the season and earn a spot in the 2016 LCK Summer Promotion. Then, they beat SBENU Sonicboom 3-0 to earn a spot in the 2016 LCK Summer Season.

During the 2016 LCK Summer Season, ESC Ever went 5-13 in total sets, with one notable upset victory over SK Telecom T1. Ares shared the jungle spot with Bless. However, they still finished the split in ninth place, leading them to participate in the 2017 LCK Spring Promotion tournament. In the first round, they beat SBENU Korea 2-1 before falling to Kongdoo Monster 3-1. In the deciding loser's match, ESC Ever swept CJ Entus to earn their spot back in the LCK.
