The recently created Paris Saint-Germain eSports team has recruited players Jin "Blanc" Seong-Min and Na "Pilot" Woo-Hyung for their competitive "League of Legends" team. The professional gaming team is owned by the popular French soccer/football club of the same name.

The two players were former members of esports team Jin Air Green Wings and had competed with the team since the beginning of their careers, as stated by ESPN. Pilot started playing for Jin Air Green Wings in 2014, while Blanc started his career in 2015. After both players departed their previous team, Paris Saint-Germain, who were at that time looking for two professional South Korean players, contacted the two and made the deal.

Blanc and Pilot last played for their former team during the 2016 League of Legends Championship Korea summer split, according to WWG. Pilot's last game was during the finals, which was on August 29 in a best of five series match against esports team Afreeca Freecs, which resulted to Jin Air Green Wings failing to get qualified for the World championship. Blanc's final game with the previous team was against esports team CJ Entus on the 6th of July.

The more experienced Pilot, who was the team's AD carry, was fourth place in terms of kill-death-assist ratio, with a record of 4.4, of South Korean AD carries while playing in the summer split, and was said to have contributed 27.7% of his team's total damage. Playing the role of the team's solo mid lane, Blanc played eight games during the summer split, with a status record of 11/12/24 and a kill-death-assist ratio of 2.9. Blanc was then substituted by Lee "Kuzan" Seong-Hyeok as mid lane player for the rest of the season. Both of them didn't join their former team's last event which was the KeSPA Cup.

Paris Saint-Germain purchased the slot of esports team Huma for the Challenger Series for this coming Spring Season 2017. Managing the team is the recent retired player and now team manager Bora "YellOwStaR" Kim.
