LCK History

LCK odds

The LCK has a rich history and has played an essential role in establishing esports in the region. The League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) was established in 2012 when OnGameNet (OGN), a South Korean cable television channel, took the initiative to organize a professional League of Legends league specifically for Korea. This move aimed to capitalize on the growing popularity of esports in South Korea, a country already renowned for its dominance in competitive gaming.

During the early years of the LCK, SK Telecom T1 established themselves as an early powerhouse and even won Season 3 of the World Championship in 2013. As the competition evolved, LCK became internationally recognized and became part of the Mid-Season Invitational and LoL Worlds. Korean teams like T1, KT Rolster, and Gen.G continued dominating the scene.

Since then, South Korea has established itself as a breeding ground for top-tier talent, garnering millions of fans worldwide who want to see fast-paced action that rivals Western professional League of Legends gameplay seen at the LEC or LCS.

Favorite LCK Teams and Players

T1 are the most successful LCK team in history

With ten of the world's greatest teams competing, the competition to be the League of Legends champions in Korea is high. The LCK has some of the strongest matchups out of all the major League of Legends leagues, making picking the favorites quite a tough decision.

Here are three top teams to watch when watching and betting on LCK.


T1 is a fabled name in the LCK, having previously been competing under SK Telecom T1. The team boasts one of the most famous League of Legends players, Faker, who currently plays as T1's mid-laner. T1 has won around nine LCK splits and even claimed the LoL World Championship title in 2023. In LoL patch 14.12, he has been immortalized in the LoL Hall of Fame with his two most iconic champions getting their own elite skins.


Gen.G is another strong contender in the LCK. The team won both 2023 LCK splits and had a decent run in LoL Worlds 2023, showing they may be returning to their former glory and restoring their dominance. They also won the LCK Spring Split and MSI, showing they are a force to be reckoned with.


DPlus KIA, known by fans as DK or Damwon Gaming, has emerged as another team to watch after they revamped their roster coming into the upcoming season 2024. They had a successful all-rounder season in 2023, only hoping to improve on their success this year.
