TL Subs is so proud to present After Talk's Betting Scandal Aftermath ft. SangHo!
Recently, the Korean progaming scene was devastatingly hit by the now well documented betting scandal. The betting scandal involved 11 progamers from various progaming teams, including some of the most notable players in Brood War history. The news of rigged games rocked Korean media, and suspicions flared left and right, as each game became scrutinized by the media. No longer could anyone believe anything.
In a previous episode of After Talk, the OGN commentators Uhm Jaekyung, Kim Carrier, and Kingdom sat down and discussed their views on the entire scandal. At that time, not all the details had been released, and the investigation had not entirely finished. Now, the After Talk crew assembles once more to share their opinions on the state of Progaming and the future of eSPORTS while hearing from one of the victims of the scandal, Sangho.
In a recent interview with Sangho, he reveals to the public the scrutiny he faced during the match fixing investigation, and the immense pressure he dealt with at the time. Here on After Talk, SangHo fully expresses what he underwent, and how he felt as a victim of the scandal. In this two part series, you'll hear from the commentators, a reporter, and of course SangHo about the entire betting scandal.
For further information on the scandal, please consult this thread.
Big thanks to Milkis for translating the first part. The second part of the series is currently in the works, so I hope you guys enjoy this for now.
on a side note, I'm curious to wonder how SangHo could stand meeting with UpMagic in the most recent of Artosis interview, even saying they were "best friends". must hurt to have your best friend involved in something like this that devastated his BW career =/

UpMagic. There's a portion on him in the second episode.
