Chronology

LCK Spring 2021 is the 13th LCK season and the first franchised season of the league.

Team Dynamics changed their branding to Nongshim RedForce ahead of the season, after being acquired by South Korean food company Nongshim [1]. Joining the league in place of APK Prince is Brion Esports as the only new franchised organisation.

South Korea Nuguri left the reigning world champions DAMWON Gaming to join FunPlus Phoenix, with South Korea Khan replacing him on the roster [2][3]. DRX rebuilt their team completely ahead of the new season, promoting South Korea SOLCA, South Korea BAO and South Korea Becca from their academy team [4]. South Korea Keria left DRX to join T1 [5], with South Korea Chovy and South Korea Deft joining Hanwha Life Esports [6][7].

South Korea Kuro retired on the 9th of December, leaving LoL Esports after competing for 8 years [8].
