Korea’s sole Overwatch League team has partnered up with America-Korean musicians pH-1 and DaviDior to create an official Seoul Dynasty song.
The side debuted their new track on Saturday, as the team made their way to the stage ahead of their clash with Philadelphia Fusion.
The song, titled “82” after Korea’s telephone calling code, is the first official song released by an Overwatch League team.
pH-1, real name Park Jun-won, who lends his vocals to the track, has been making hip hop music since 2016. He followed up his first mixtape, The Island Kid, with a second, Gatsby, earlier this year.
This is the second partnership that Seoul Dynasty has agreed this year. The team is currently partnered with Netgear. The computing network company’s logos can be seen on Seoul Dynasty’s jerseys during games.
Arnold Hur, Seoul Dynasty’s Chief Growth Officer, said:
“pH-1 and DaviDior are both incredible musicians, and when we learned that they were fans of our Seoul Dynasty team, we knew we had to work together to make something great happen.
“We took a lot of feedback from our team about what kind of music they liked and worked closely with both pH-1 and DaviDior to put together something that our fans around the world could get excited about.”
Seoul Dynasty’s official theme song: A boost to morale?
pH-1 was equally as keen to get involved in the project. The musician said:
“As a Korean-American living in Seoul, there was no question about hopping on this project to support the Seoul Dynasty.
“I wanted to represent my city and contribute what I can to the team with my music. I wanted a track with tremendous energy because I know how much influence music can have on team morale.”
However, the entrance music did little to inspire the team against Philadelphia Fusion. Despite pushing the game to a fifth match, the Korean side fell to a 3-2 defeat.
The Dynasty has won just two of its eight games so far and sits outside of the postseason spots in the overall table.
