Moments after announcing the release of DPS Krystal, the Hangzhou Spark have signed veteran Off-Tank player Yu “QoQ” Sung-jun.
Never stop improving.
Please welcome the newest Spark, “QoQ” Yu Sung-jun, who joins us as an off-tank. This veteran player brings his experience from a string of championships to become a great component of the team. Let’s make some noise!

QoQ is a well known D.Va and Zarya player who most recently played for T1 (formerly known as Fusion University) in Contenders Korea. During the first week of the 2020 season, QoQ helped the team achieve first place in the bracket but has not matched that success since.
Most notably, however, QoQ played for the storied team, RunAway, after the initial roster left to play in the OWL for the Vancouver Titans. The new roster was able to continue the franchise’s recent successes by winning both 2018 Season 3 and 2019 Season 2 of Contenders Korea. From there, most of the roster dubbed as RunAway 2.0 was signed off to various Overwatch League teams, including the Mayhem, Fusion, Dragons, and Spitfire. QoQ was not included in those signings, unfortunately, which led to his arrival with T1.
QoQ‘s arrival in the OWL was inevitable based on his skill set and Hangzhou made the call just in time as the team is going through a new mindset with their other new player: Architect. The Tank player brings another fresh face to the roster and bolster’s the team tank line which may allow SASIN to further float between DPS and Off-tank whenever needed.
The Spark play next this weekend against the Excelsior and Charge and all eyes will be on the team to see if the Off-Tank gets any playtime.
