Kevin "KonKwon" Kwon (Hangul: 권구혁) is a substitute support for Team Liquid.

Biography

Kevin "KonKwon" Kwon was born in Seoul, South Korea and was raised in Tokyo, Japan. After 8th grade, Kevin moved to New Jersey and lived there until summer of 2014 and moved to California. He is taking a break from completing his business degree at Rutgers University to pursue a professional League of Legends career.

2014 Season

KonKwon played on GamesterGear with Flaresz, Thinkcard, Yusui and WizFujiiN but the team never managed to qualify for any major tournaments before he left the team in September of 2014.

2015 Season

KonKwon joined Team Dragon Knights in January of 2015. The team played in the 2015 NA CS Spring Qualifier where they 2-0'd Team Frostbite and Storm to qualify for the 2015 NA CS Spring Season. He left the team in February, prior to the start of the regular season.[1] Just before the third week of play, KonKwon joined Final Five, replacing Rule18 as their starting support.

On March 15th, KonKwon joined Team Coast and replaced Sheep as part of a larger roster change that included swapping Impaler and Sheep to Final Five.[2] Prior to the roster change, Coast were at a 1-13 record but they still lost their remaining games, ending the split with a 1-17 record. Because Coast ended in last place, they were automatically relegated to the 2015 NA CS Summer Season. In the NACS, they won the round robin by beating Renegades in a tiebreaker match. However in the 2015 NA CS Summer Playoffs, they lost 3-2 to Renegades in the finals to finish in second place. They still qualified for the 2016 NA LCS Promotion Tournament, where they played against Enemy. Coast beat NME 3-0 and requalified for the 2016 NA LCS Spring Season.

2016 Season

Coast's LCS slot was bought out by NRG eSports in November 2015. KonKwon was the only member of the Coast to be on the NRG starting roster. NRG started the LCS strong, tied for either first or second place through the first four weeks, but after the fifth week they fell down to fifth place and remained there for the rest of the season. They were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.

KonKwon joined Apex Pride for the NACS Summer Season in June and was also listed as a substitute for sister team Apex Gaming. After a fifth-place finish left them short of the Summer Playoffs, KonKwon announced his retirement from League of Legends, stating "I think I'm not good enough to be where I want to be."[3][4] He remained a substitute on the main roster.
