Team Liquid has announced that Daniel "KoreanDJ" Jung has decided to leave the team and retire from competitive Smash due to injuries. In the official announcement Victor "Nazgul" Goosens had only positive praise for KDJ and sadness that he would be leaving the team. "I have gotten to know him as a kind and smart guy, and what I have admired most about him is his insatiable drive and dedication to become good at what he loves. We bid farewell to a great friend and one of the most admired stories in Smash history, and he leaves behind a legacy that can be rivaled by so very few."
This is what KDJ had to say on the subject. "It is with a heavy heart that I will be officially leaving Team Liquid. It has been an honor and a privilege being in an incredible and supportive team. The loyalty and support from the managers and from Victor have been the best benefit of being on Team Liquid. I am forever grateful for the love and support of my fans even when I was struggling with my injuries. It truly meant a lot to me. Unfortunately, it is time for me to put an end to my Smash career as the progression of my injuries renders me unable to participate in tournaments. For me, leaving the team is the only way I can find closure in this up-hill battle. Team Liquid has been the pioneer of introducing the Smash community to the world of eSports, and I am forever grateful for it being the spark that made the scene grow to the scale it has become now. Though I will be leaving the team, I will always be a loyal supporter of Team Liquid."
It is a sad day to see any player retire especially due to injuries and with a heavy heart Smashboards wishes KDJ the best in all future endeavors.
