3 Korean teams claim spots in LoL World Championship semifinalsBy Lee Si-jin

The first game of the semifinals for the League of Legend World Championship will feature a clash of LoL giants Damwon and T1.
The two teams, considered the two strongest teams in this year’s tournament, seek to cement their respective legacies by hoisting the Summoner’s Cup.
While Damwon aims to reach the final stage for a second consecutive year, T1 looks to make a triumphant return to the World’s final, with its last such appearance in 2017.
The two Western teams -- Mad Lions of Europe and Cloud9 from the US -- both lost in the quarterfinals and were knocked out by Korean teams in clean sweeps.
Korea has produced three semifinalists for the first time in five years. In 2016, SK Telecom T1, Samsung Galaxy and Rox Tigers advanced to the semifinals of Worlds.
Though Hanwha Life Esports was eliminated in the quarterfinals by fellow Korea team T1, the chance of an inter-Korean matchup in the finals has LCK fans anticipating a return to the LCK’s glory days, when Korean teams dominated the World Championships for several years.
The semifinals kick off at 9 p.m. on Saturday evening, with livestreaming available via various platforms, including Naver, YouTube and Twitch.
