Gu "Expession" Bon-taek (구본택) is the Top Laner for Longzhu Gaming.
Leauge of Legends
Expession started his career back in 2012 with Team Hunters. When he left the team, he then joined NaJin White Shield. He competed with the team in various Battle Royal tournaments as well as in Azubu The Champions Summer 2012 where they finished 9th-16th, PANDORA.TV Champions Winter 2013-2014 at 9th-12th and in OLYMPUS Champions Spring 2013 finishing 5th-8th. This was also his last tournament with NJWS before he left the team and moved to its sister team NaJin Black Sword. With NJBS, Expession made it to the Semifinals of Season 3 World Championship alongside Cain, Nagne, watch and PraY. He then continued to play with the team up until PANDORA.TV Champions Winter 2013-2014 where they finished 9th-16th. He then parted ways with the team when he got sick in February of 2014.
When Expession came back to competitive gaming, he joined Incredible Miracle in June 2015. His first split in the LCK was in Summer where he and IM ended at 9th place and had to go through the Promotion Tournament to re-qualify for 2016 LCK Spring. Fortunately, they were able to beat Challenger team Dark Wolves.
When Incredible Miracle was acquired by Longzhu Gaming, Expession became part of the 10-man roster. However, the results the team earned for both Spring and Summer Split were not the ones they were expecting. In 2016 Spring, Expession and team finished at 7th place with an 8-10 standing. They ended lower for Summer Split at 8th place with a 7-11 record. At the 2016 LoL KeSPA Cup, they finished at 9th-14th. The only positive result the team has earned for the season was at IEM XI Oakland where they finished 3rd-4th.
During the off season, Longzhu Gaming decided to rebuild its roster and their first step was to release all their players, except for Crash, as well as 2 of their coaches. The players released include Expession but he was re-signed by the team days after his release. Joining his teammate Crash, they will be playing under Longzhu's banner in 2017 LCK Spring together with the new additions to the roster, PraY, GorillA, Fly and BDD.
