JD Gaming has announced its signing of Gu "imp" Seung-bin for the upcoming season of the League of Legends Pro League.

The AD Carry joins the Chinese team as its second AD Carry after having most recently departed from Team WE on Tuesday. Imp will likely share time on stage with the team’s starting AD Carry Ju "Bvoy" Yeong-hoon.


Prior to playing for Team WE, imp entered the Chinese region to play for LGD Gaming for four years after having parted ways with Samsung White in 2014, where the AD Carry helped his team win the League of Legends World Championship with the Korean team.


The LPL recently expanded to a total of 16 teams after having welcomed SinoDragon Gaming and Victory Five to the region. The teams will be divided up into two eight-team regions for the spring split when the games kick off on Jan. 14.
