“For the longest time, we’ve heavily relied on some form of star power and used that to leverage success. But that mindset was great for the moment, but not great for the long haul,” Lim stated. “Even teams with amazing players at every role can sometimes struggle, so 2017 will be all about finding that identity and team dynamic.”

“He has a lot of strengths that I didn’t have and I believe he’ll fill the role well and bring TL fans the success they’ve been waiting for.Former head coach” said former head coach Choi “Locodoco” Yoon-sub. He continued: “As for me, I’m in a transition process and nothing is fully decided. I’ll let you guys know as soon as I have something concrete.”
