Yang “Daeny” Dae-in, coach for the DWG KIA League of Legends, tested the COVID-19 positive, the club announced via Twitter.

In a statement translated by Ashley Kang of Korizon, the South Korean club said: “The remaining LCK DWA KIA coaching staff and players have been negatively tested and DWG KIA is working to kill the HQ virus and prevent cases. More “which is the standard procedure for groups in the LCK.

It is now likely that the KIA DWG will play this week without Daeny since the 2022 LCK Spring Split takes place at LoL Park in Seoul. In this case, Lee “Zefa” Jae-min and Park “Bubbling” Jun-hyeong, two DWG KIA coaches, will be replaced. The team is scheduled to face Gen.G tomorrow and will face Nongshim RedForce this Friday.

This year, several LCK teams saw positive COVID-19 results in their rankings. The club faced an immediate increase in infections and was forced to play on stage with school players including DRX, Nongshim RedForce, Hanwha Life and Gen.G.

Fortunately for DWG KIA, the team has already secured a place in the upcoming qualifiers. The team has a 9-5 record and has four more games to play before the end of the regular season.
