Guangdong’s top laner Lee Dong-ju had a standout performance. Lee was outstanding in both defense and offense with his xanthero in Game 1, as he pulled off a super play to single-handedly pick off the opposing bottom duo (Apelios-Yumi), which helped Guangdong clinch a difficult first set.
Lee made it a harsh introduction for DRX’s third-stringers Kang “Ye-hoo” and Ko “Paduk” Seok-hyun, who were making their debuts on the day.
