K-pop superstar and lead dancer of SM Entertainment’s boy band EXO Oh Sehun has just entered the esports scene as a shareholder of APE Sports, the company that runs the organization SeolHaeOne Prince.
This partnership with Sehun “will be of great help” according to APE’s Kim Ok-jin.
Previously known as APK Prince, SeolHaeOne Prince is popular for its League of Legends team consisting of players like Son “Mickey” Young-min, Lee “HyBriD” Woo-jin, and Sung “Flawless” Yeon-jun. The team landed on the seventh place of the League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) Spring Split under the APK Prince banner last April.
SeolHaeOne Prince is planning to apply for franchising in the LCK next year, according to Inven Global.
