"We are sad to announce players departure as we enter the offseason," the team tweeted Monday. "... We thank them for everything they've done for the team and send them best wishes to their future."

In addition to Asper, contracts with Gen.G also ended for Lee "CuVee" Seong-jin, Kim "Roach" Kang-hui, Han "Peanut" Wang-ho, Yoon "SeongHwan" Seong-hwan, Song "Fly" Young-jun, Lee "Kuzan" Seong-hyeok and Lee "Rich" Jae-won.

The contracts for Park "Ruler" Jae-hyuk and Kim "Life" Jeong-min were extended, with Gen.G saying the team plans to rebuild the roster around them.
