The 2022 League of Legends World Championship has come to an end after a nail biter between DRX and T1. The underdogs have come out on top and their young top lane talent has managed to take home an even bigger honour after the tournament, earning finals MVP.

The young player has shown a great performance throughout the World Championship. This story of the top laner truly is a Cinderella story like no other.

Kingen Shows Up Big on Aatrox At Worlds Finals 2022

Hwang "Kingen" Sung-hoon has truly shown off that he has the correct in-game name, because after the performance he showed during the League of Legends World Championship finals, he truly deserves a crown... and a crown he was given as the LoL Worlds Finals MVP.

In the final two games of the series, with their backs against the wall, DRX Kingen managed to pull out the best out of himself, showing off why he and his team deserve to win. He put on a clinic on Aatrox, against T1's young talent Zeus, whom most had pegged as the best top laner at the tournament.

Throughout the domestic league I underperformed. Unlike how I’ve looked at worlds, I hesitate a lot. [...] I was able to pull off the aggressive moves today thanks to the coaching staff.

Thanks to his performance and his ability to carry the team, Kingen earned his spot as League of Legends Finals MVP, joining the likes of EDG Scout and DAMWON KIA Canyon, cementing his name into the history books.
