China, as the host of Asian Games 2023, received a direct seed in the quarterfinals. Its roster is widely considered to be the closest rival to South Korea, making this matchup extremely exciting. Unfortunately, it is a bit too early, considering both lineups had the chance to comfortably make it to the grand finals if the playoff brackets were different.

Regardless, China will be looking to secure the all-important win against South Korea on home soil, and the roster has big potential in doing so. Top laner Chen "Bin" Ze-Bin, mid laner Zhuo "Knight" Ding, and ADC Zhao "Elk" Jia-Hao have all had an exceptional 2023 League of Legends season. However, there was some criticism regarding the inclusion of veteran support Tian "Meiko" Ye over other promising talents.
