This match was the first '2023 League of Legends World Championship' to be held in Korea in five years, and T1's 'Keria' Min Seok Ryu shouted "New Jeans, come out!"

New Jeans transformed into five warriors and dominated the stage with the dancers by perfectly executing delicate and powerful dance moves that matched the majestic atmosphere of 'GODS' with a refreshing appearance, completely different from the liberal appearance on stage so far.
In addition, various equipment such as large LED screens, fireworks and lighting enriched the stage, while 3D technology deployed on and off stage also created a more lively stage.
To create the perfect stage for 'GODS', which contains the fierce competition of players and the story of victory, New Jeans prepared the performance by studying the real world of LoL and noticing to every detail, including directly producing costumes and accessories inspired by LoL Characters.
Meanwhile, New Jeans will be the first K-pop girl group to attend the '2023 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs)' on the 20th.
