Won-hyeop "ArHaN" Jeong will be eligible to finally play for the Houston Outlaws in the Overwatch League ever since his signing in late March. ArHan was unable to play for the team during that time, as his work visa was not yet approved.
For those of you wondering, @ArHaN_OW wasn't eligible to play until today. He had been here on a tourist visa while we waited (forever) for his work visa. It's finally been approved and he's in the country for the first time as an employee.— flame (@flameIRL) May 28, 2018
ArHaN joined the Outlaws as a DPS player and is widely regarded for his incredible Genji and Tracer play. ArHaN was a member of the South Korean team that ended up winning the Overwatch World Cup against Russia, alongside Outlaws coach Tae-yeong "TaiRong" Kim.
ArHaN was not the only player from South Korea who had problems with getting visa approval. Shanghai Dragons players Kim "Geguri" Seyeon, Lee "Fearless" Euiseok, Chon "Ado" Gihyeon, and He "Sky" Junjian all faced delays in acquiring their visas.
His visa was approved in time for him to play in the third week of Stage 4 of the Overwatch League. The Houston Outlaws will play against the Shanghai Dragons on Friday June 1, and against the Florida Mayhem Saturday June 2.
