After acquiring two players from the London Spitfire earlier this month, the Seoul Dynasty is continuing their roster changes. Korean damage player Sang-beom “Munchkin” Byun has been signed to the Boston Uprising for the 2020 Overwatch League season.

Munchkin has been apart of the Seoul Dynasty for two seasons now and was announced as a free agent right after the conclusion of the League. In the Inaugural season, he was a nasty damage player often popping off on Widowmaker or Tracer. The entire Seoul Dynasty struggled during the 2019 season, but Munchkin got to flex once the 2-2-2 role lock was implemented.
Chris “HuK” Loranger, President of Gaming for the Uprising issued a statement saying, “Munchkin has a long and successful history in competitive Overwatch. We think his maturity and experience will be valuable to the Uprising in 2020, and we’re excited to have him on the team.”
Acquiring Munchkin is a solid move for the Uprising, currently holding Kelsey "Colourhex" Birse, and new player Tae-hee "Jerry Min from Contenders Korea team Meta Athena. The Uprising had a rough 2019 season dropping farther and farther down the ranks as the stages went on. Hopefully, the roster changes made in the off-season will reflect in their performance during the 2020 season.
