In a few months, the 2023 League of Legends World Championship will start. Fans from around the world are excited and curious about who will create the tournament’s special song. People are talking a lot about a famous K-pop group that might be involved, even though it’s just speculation for now.
The popular South Korean boy group ATEEZ recently talked about League of Legends on social media. They visited Riot Games’ office in Los Angeles on August 15, but they didn’t say why. Many fans are now thinking that this could mean they might work together with the game company.

For the first time since 2018, the Worlds tournament will be in South Korea. Many fans of LoL Esports remember that Riot introduced the virtual K-pop girl group K/DA there. K/DA became really famous with millions of people listening and watching their music, especially their song “POP/STARS,” which got a huge 562 million views.
Now, as the tournament returns to South Korea, it would make sense for Riot to introduce a new K-pop group. This would be a big deal for the company. K/DA’s popularity went beyond just esports, and even people who don’t play League of Legends liked their music.
People have been wondering if Riot would ever create a boy group after K/DA’s success. ATEEZ could be a great choice for Riot’s music team. They are already a big deal in the music industry. There are eight members in the group, which matches the number of champions on the game’s map.
Some ATEEZ members said they play League of Legends, which hints that they might work together with Riot on a music piece. This could happen during the tournament’s opening ceremony in October.
