Famed caster Kim Chul-min of MBCGame, OGN and SpoTV has started a series of show matches on Afreeca with some of the most popular progamers. The Bo3 matches aim to use more classic Starleague maps rather than the more standard ladder maps. The Legends Matches are casted by Kim Chul-min and former MBCGame Heroes progamer Yooi and is broadcasted on AfreecaTV and Twitch.tv. Kim Carry, another famed caster from OGN also had a brief stint of co-casting the Legends Matches. In the current iteration however, the co-caster position has been filled by former KOR/ OGN Sparkyz progamer and coach, ZeuS.

For prize money, KCM is aiming for a crowd-sourced system modeled after DotA2's The International through Afreeca balloons.

Participants of each match receives a predetermined prize pool (₩100,000-250,000) plus viewer donations, split 70/30 between the two players.
