Helps Samsung take series win
August 1, 2017

ANALYSIS
CoreJJ ended Game 1 with a 0/1/9 KDA as Rakan. He picked up an assist on first blood, ending the game with 90 percent kill participation and the game high assist total. In Game 2, CoreJJ finished with a 0/4/2/ KDA as Tahm Kench. He had an assist on two of three Samsung kills, but had the highest death total in Game 2.

Can't carry the carries
July 24, 2017
CoreJJ has an acceptable day against MVP on Friday by going 1/4/16 in KDA.
ANALYSIS
CoreJJ was perhaps the best player for Samsung on Friday, but clean support play rarely is enough to tip the scales in professional matches where the mid and ADC are playing poorly. In Game's 2 and 3, he took Tahm Kench and did a great job keeping Ruler alive, as his ADC only died two times in the two games. In Game 1 he played Rakan for the first time in his professional career. His individual performance was decent as he netted a 77 percent kill participation.
Unbendable and unbreakable against SKT T1
July 14, 2017
CoreJJ earned a 0/3/35 KDA during Samsung's sweep of SKT T1.
ANALYSIS
When CoreJJ was first swapped into the support position a little over a year ago, most commentators thought it was a sign of desperation from the organization, rather than a premeditated strategy. In the wake of Samsung's victory over SKT T1 -- a victory that CoreJJ played no small part in -- such nay-saying is sure to become a thing of the past. CoreJJ looked nothing short of outstanding during the critical match. More importantly, he looked outstanding on Braum, a champion that is very far outside of the wheelhouse that we normally ascribe to CoreJJ, who's best known for his mastery of the mage supports such as Zyra. CoreJJ had one task all series: peel for Crown and Ruler, and it was a mission that he carried out with aplomb. Both Faker and Huni had their attempts to enter the back line of Samsung constantly frustrated by everything from Concussive Blows to Glacial Chasm, and SKT T1's composition completely fell apart when denied back line access, at least in Game 1. Game 2 was a much shorter and brutal affair, and instead of using his crowd control to peel SKT T1 off of his own backlines, CoreJJ was instead in a position to use said crowd control on SKT T1's backline to devastating effect, which helped net Samsung the quick 2-0 victory as well as the much-coveted first place position in the LCK.
Nearly unkillable Tahm Kench
July 11, 2017
CoreJJ ended Samsung's sweep of Ever8 with a 1/1/12 KDA in two games as Tahm Kench.
ANALYSIS
CoreJJ finished Game 1 with a 0/1/7 KDA. He was involved in all but one Samsung kill, ending the game with the highest assist total at seven. He helped Samsung overcome a huge deficit early in the game to pick up a comeback win in Game 1. In Game 2, CoreJJ was unkillable, finishing with a 1/0/5 KDA. He was involved in six of eight Samsung kills, finishing with his team's highest assist total and tying Haru and Syndra for the lowest kill total on the team.
Complicates victory over EDG with constant deaths
July 7, 2017
CoreJJ ended Samsung's victory over Edward Gaming with a 1/5/10 KDA.
ANALYSIS
For most of Samsung, the victory over Edward Gaming was an excellent example of just how skilled and resilient of a squad Samsung can be. For CoreJJ, it was another story entirely, as he was the one who paid for all of Samsung's collective mistakes and looked quite bad compared to his teammates. Whenever EDG made a play with Enchanted Crystal Arrow or Abyssal Voyage, it was usually onto CoreJJ, who stalled out Samsung's mid game with an impressive string of deaths that hearkened back to his Dignitas days. Fortunately, CoreJJ managed to perform when it mattered most, and the two teamfights that Samsung most needed to win were won thanks to a combination of CoreJJ's Glacial Chasm and CuVee's GNAR!!! chained together.
Triples up on Braum
June 28, 2017
CoreJJ finished Samsung's 2-1 win over Longzhu with a 3/6/26 KDA in three games as Braum.
ANALYSIS
CoreJJ earned a 1/1/5 KDA in Game 1. He was involved in six of Samsung's eight kills, dying only once, but was unable to help his team to a win in Game 1. In Game 2, CoreJJ finished with a 1/5/17 KDA. He was involved in 18 of his team's 21 kills, setting up multiple plays with his Concussive Blows passive and finishing with the game high in assists. In Game 3, CoreJJ finished with a 1/0/4 KDA. He was unkillable, involved in five of Samsung's nine kills, en route to taking the decisive game of the series.
Better in Game 2
June 22, 2017
CoreJJ finished Samsung's sweep of bbq with a 0/3/9 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS

He was better in Game 2, using Tahm Kench to finish with a 0/2/7 KDA. He was involved in seven of his team's 12 kills, helping to keep Ruler safe and allowing his AD carry to scale into a threat.
Plays well in easy sweep
June 8, 2017
CoreJJ ended Samsung's sweep of MVP with a 3/2/20 combined KDA.
ANALYSIS

In Game 2, he again played well, this time as Tahm Kench. He ended the game with a 1/1/8 KDA, involved in nine of Samsung's 12 kills.

Outside of Game 1 mishaps, an overall strong series
June 4, 2017
CoreJJ posted a 5/4/18 KDA Samsung Galaxy's 2-1 series victory over ROX Tigers on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
CoreJJ played two games of Karma, followed by a game of Zyra. His Karma in Game 1 fell victim to the enemy Blitzcrank, which prevented CoreJJ from being able to harass and utilize his passive very well in lane. His translated to a weak mid/late game from him, and his team's shortcomings didn't help much either. His Game 2 Karma was much better due to a lower hook accuracy from the enemy support's Thresh, which unlocked the ability for CoreJJ to harass and abused small oversteps from the enemy in lane. He did great as the map opened up, shield teammates while setting up picks with ease. His Game 3 Zyra likely won his team the bottom lane due to passive play from his ADC. Calculated engage by CoreJJ led to a weak laning phase from the enemy on top of a strong Zyra. The game was SSG's to win, and CoreJJ played a big role in that.
Perfect KDA in series victory over SKT
June 3, 2017
CoreJJ earned a series KDA of 5/0/10 through two Zyra games against SKT.
ANALYSIS
CoreJJ had a consistently strong performance against SKT, refusing to die a single time throughout his team's victory. He started things off in Game 1 with strong play, finding picks in skirmishes and locking down the enemy team to assist the rest of his team in dealing massive amounts of damage and carrying fights. He simultaneously did huge portions of damage, allowing his team to take things convincingly and close out Game 1 with ease. Game 2 saw the exact same performance from CoreJJ, but to a higher scale. Playing more aggressively, he was able to pick up even more kills for himself and his team. Dominating skirmishes, he refused to die, resulting in his team taking a 2-0 series victory while he refused to die a single time.
