They came back to Korea for OLYMPUS Champions Spring 2013, this time making it to playoffs but losing 3-0 to SK Telecom T1 2. Expession left the team in June of 2013 to join the newly named NaJin Black Sword. Expession's first tournament with the team was HOT6iX Champions Summer 2013 where they only placed 3rd in their group and could not make it to the bracket stage. Regardless, the team had garnered enough circuit points to qualify directly to the Season 3 World Championship as the top seed from Korea due to circuit points. They played Gambit Gaming in the quarterfinals and beat them but they lost in the semifinals 3-2 to the eventual champions SK Telecom T1.

Expession joined Incredible Miracle in June of 2015 as one of their top laners alongside Apple and Lilac. IM placed ninth in the regular season of SBENU Champions Summer 2015 and were forced to play in the LCK 2016 Season Spring Promotion. Incredible Miracle played the Dark Wolves in the promotion tournament and managed to beat them 3-1 to requalify for the LCK.
