Retired League of Legends player and iconic SK Telecom T1 top-laner Jang “MaRin” Gyeong-hwan has finally tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend.
It was a rather small wedding ceremony where only family members of both parties were invited to celebrate the joyous occasion. Even though MaRin kept it a secret, word got out among his fans which he addressed during his live stream.
“Thank you. I didn’t say anything but all of you know about it already. Who posted about it? I don’t understand. It was a small ceremony with just family present,” according to a translated tweet by Kevin Kim.

When asked what he misses the most in South Korea during his time with LPL team LGD Gaming, this was his answer:

He may have retired from the professional scene, but fans still catch a glimpse of this phenomenal Korean player from time to time.
