From left to right: Canis, I’ll Be Happy

Though Happy and her Lars play seemed to be an unstoppable force after steamrolling through most of the competition, she was unable to cope with Canis’ tricky Xiaoyu. Canis kept whittling away at Happy’s health and never allowed Happy an opportunity to properly engage on her. By shutting Happy down this way, she managed to take three straight matches in the grand finals and winning the top spot. If you want to see the action once more, you can find the VODs right here.

These two players will be joining the rest of the South Korean representatives in the big finals to be held in Japan on December 10, 2016. Here’s the current lineup of South Korea for the King of Iron Fist Tournament 2016:

Saint (EVO Champion)
Knee (EVO 2nd place)
LowHigh (Student’s Qualifier)
ImSoHot (Student’s Qualifier)
GoraeBob (Student’s Qualifier)
RushCash (Open Qualifier)
Hatano (Open Qualifier)
Chanel (Open Qualifier)
Canis (Women’s Qualifier)
I’ll Be Happy (Women’s Qualifier)

South Korea is one of the only two countries in the world that has actual access to Tekken 7: Fated Retribution at the moment. With such an advantage in addition to this lineup, they are definitely a top contender in KoIFT 2016.

Japan will be holding another qualifier in Tokyo on November 15, 2016 with nine (to be confirmed) more slots for the big final on the line. That will be the last qualifying tournament before the finals on December 10, 2016 so be sure not to miss it!
