Choi "Acorn" Cheon-ju (Hangul: 최천주) is a League of Legends esports player who was previously a coach for Kingzone DragonX. He was previously known as ChuChu and Cheonju.

Biography

Season 2

Choi "ChuChu" Cheon-ju was a part of the original roster of RoMg as their top laner in early 2012. The team qualified for Azubu The Champions Summer 2012 where they took a game off of Azubu Frost, the eventual champions; however, even with their win, they still failed to advance from groups.

Season 3

ChuChu changes his name to "Cheonju at the start of the new season and the team renamed themselves "GSG". They qualified for OLYMPUS Champions Winter 2012-2013 but GSG still struggled and placed last in their group, missing playoffs again. After a few people left the team, the remaining players, Cheonju, Solo, and Easy joined MVP Blue. This new MVP team continued to struggle, not making it past the group stage during OLYMPUS Champions Spring 2013 and HOT6iX Champions Summer 2013. In September, Blue and their sister team, MVP Ozone, were both picked up by the Samsung organization to form Samsung Galaxy Blue and Samsung Galaxy Ozone.

2014 Season

Cheonju changed his name again at the beginning of the new season, this time to "Acorn". Success finally came for Blue in the 2014 Season, when they finally made it out of groups at PANDORA.TV Champions Winter 2013-2014. Unfortunately, they ran into the undefeated SK Telecom T1 K and were knocked out of the tournament 3-0 by them. However, Blue truly made their mark when they defeated NaJin White Shield 3-1 in the finals of HOT6iX Champions Spring 2014 to bring Samsung its first OGN victory. Blue's hot streak continued at HOT6iX Champions Summer 2014 but this time falling in the finals 3-2 to the KT Rolster Arrows. The team's strong season granted them the top Korean seed to the 2014 Season World Championship. Blue was one of the favorites coming into Worlds but their sister team, Samsung White, knocked them out 3-0 in the semifinals of the tournament. On November 17, 2014, it was officially announced, that all remaining members of Samsung White and Samsung Blue left their teams.[1]

2015 Season

Acorn joined LGD Gaming in December of 2014 with two other Koreans, imp and Flame. Flame and Acorn were both given the top lane position but with Acorn as the starter and Flame as the sub. LGD's first full tournament as a team was the 2015 Demacia Cup Spring Season where they made the quarterfinals but lost 3-0 to Invictus Gaming. Shortly afterwards, they finished the 2015 LPL Spring Regular Season in 6th place and advanced to the 2015 LPL Spring Playoffs. LGD upset both OMG and Snake eSports 3-0 to face EDward Gaming in the finals. The series went the distance to a full five games but LGD ultimately lost the series 3-2 to EDG. LGD became feared in China but they were upset 3-0 by OMG in the 2015 Demacia Cup Summer Season. LGD placed fifth in the 2015 LPL Summer Regular Season and qualified for the Seeding Match of the 2015 LPL Summer Playoffs. They fought their way to the finals, even upsetting EDG 3-0 along the way. LGD beat the Qiao Gu Reapers 3-2 in the finals to qualify for the 2015 Season World Championship as the top seed from China. LGD was placed in a group alongside Team SoloMid, Origen, and KT Rolster. Unfortunately, they ended with a 2-4 record and were knocked out of the tournament.

2016 Preseason

LGD were the fan-voted team to attend IEM San Jose. They were knocked out in the first round, losing 2-0 to Team SoloMid, with Acorn and Flame each playing one game.
