CORRECTION (9:37 a.m. ET June 21: An earlier version of this story, citing a Dot Esports report, incorrectly stated Hwang Chang-gyu was taken in by police for questioning. A warrant for Chang-gyu's arrest was sought but later denied by South Korean prosecutors. The headline and article have been updated to reflect this change.
