After the announcement that suggest and allow are leaving the team, NUTURN have announced that Kang "solo" Keun-chul will be leaving the team as well from their active roster.

Solo has been one the core members when NUTURN was established back in 2020 and has sticked with the team through thick and thin. Amidst some rumors back in May after the 3rd place in VCT Stage 2 Masters - Reykjavík that solo might be stopping competing, he stayed with the team for VCT Stage 3 and the VCT 2021 - APAC Last Chance Qualifier which unfortunately both events had disappointing results for the team. With two slot available in VCT Stage 3: Masters - Berlin - Group Stage for the Korean region, the team didn't manage to make it to the finals in the VCT Stage 3: Korea - Challengers Playoffs as they lost to DWG KIA 2-1 in the quarter finals. With enough circuit points accumulated throughout the year, NUTURN had one last chance to qualify to VALORANT Champions 2021 through the APAC Last Chance Qualifier but they finished 4th again losing to DWG KIA 2-0 in the Lower Bracket stage.

Known mostly for his in-game leading, solo achieved a Rating of 0.96 with an average of 192 ACS throughout his career. His main agents where Breach, Killjoy and Cypher focusing on the initiator or sentinel role. As confirmed by the player himself on twitter, he will be now switching to a coaching career but nothing has been defined yet.

With this change, NUTURN now only field two players:

Jung "peri" Bum-gi Yoon "hyeoni" Hyun-seok
