Counter Logic Gaming mid laner Choi "Huhi" Jae-hyun was awarded a green card on Saturday and is now officially a permanent resident of the United States, the player announced in a tweet. Huhi is the second League of Legends Championship Series player to obtain permanent resident status — after former Team Curse and Liquid top laner Diego "Quas" Ruiz did so in May 2015 — and the first from South Korea.
