South Korean Congressman Jun Byung-hun is no stranger to cosplay. Nor is he a stranger to League of Legends. And LoL cosplay? Well, this isn't his first rodeo.

As first reported last fall, Rep. Jun has embraced the country's gaming community and culture, and he has worked hard to promote eSports in South Korea.

Websites Gamtoon and GameMeca (via tipster Sang) report that his latest effort is cosplaying as Masked Shaco from League of Legends.

This past August, the congressman appeared on KeSPA's Starcraft II Proleague 2014 Season final, decked out in an Arcturus Mengsk costume from StarCraft II. He thanked all the fans for supporting eSports.

Sadly, Rep. Jun says this latest effort will be his last cosplay. Bummer! Hopefully, he'll keep doing his part to promote eSports. If only South Korea had more politicians like himโ€”heck, if only everywhere did.
