- This is your third time qualifying for MSL
▲ Very happy to have advanced. I'm so glad that I got another chance in the individual league.
- You played a hard game against HoeJJa.
▲ I didn't see the zerglings moving out in the early game. I thought he was 12 pool but then it didn't looks like it so I scouted again. Luckily I didn't sustain too much damage.
- You and Classic played an 'estro derby' in the winner's game
▲ We didn't really talk much after seeing eachother again, even though we knew we would. (laugh) When I was back in estro I don't see him practice often, and his results weren't that good. I won the game today fairly comfortably.
- All the top players in Woongjin has already qualified in the MSL, is there alot of pressure?
▲ None what so ever, free has always been a great player, so advancing through the previous group was a given.
- Your goal this season is?
▲ Firstly I really wanted to advance to Ro16, if I can do that then I can play comfortably. Ro32 is a big hurdle, although I don't have particular players that I want to play or avoid, I do want to avoid protoss somewhat. I won alot of TvZ lately so my confidence has increased in the matchup, but I lost alot of TvP so I'm not confident in it. I wish to avoid protoss, and steadily prepare. (laugh)
- With the recent addition of Light you must have had less chance to play.
▲ Aside from Light we already have many good players, but now that he is here things have gotten even tougher. (laugh) It's just like great said, my position is now threatened, so I must improve my win rate. I will try to learn from Light, if we get send out in SPL together we will definitely win for our team.
- Do you have anything to say to great?
▲ I want say: "Do not concern yourself with other matters, just focus on doing your own thing. You totally don't look like someone who has been to the finals before." (laugh) (T/N: ouch)
- Thoughts on 3 consecutive qualification for MSL?
▲ Firstly, having not played a single televised game for 2 months after the last MSL, I was so nervous that I was shaking now that I get play after so long. I was so fortunate to have advanced.
- You lost regrettably against Really.
▲ I was very confident during practice, but Really hyung seem to really know me. Really hyung prepared very well and I lost without being able to do anything. Although it was regrettable but it was good that I managed to qualify as second place.
- How was your form today?
▲ My win against BeSt in the first game was not bad, but I seem to have vastly underestimated Really hyung. (laugh)
- You dealt with BeSt's shuttle play very well.
▲ BeSt used an unorthodox build, but luckily I was spotted it early and was quick to react. I'm fairly satisfied with that game.
- You often get bad luck in the actual tournament.
▲ I hope I can get a better group this season, but there really aren't any easy opponent in the MSL proper. I must prepare well and I will try to go further this time.
- First time you made it to Ro32, second time you made it to Ro16, will it be Ro8 this time?
▲ I had a good momentum going lately, so my goal is set on the Ro8, but I still have many shortcomings so I will work even harder in order to go the extra mile.
- The previous MSL winners managed to go all the way after eliminating you.
▲ It was nice to know that I was eliminated by the eventual winner, but I must also improve my own ability so that I can reach higher grounds.
- You played rather shaky against HoeJJa in the final set.
▲ My initial bunker rush killed alot of drones so I thought I have won, but HoeJJa countered me all of a sudden, and I didn't react well in the moment. I didn't get any time to prepare for the last game so I had to cheese. Fortunately I got lucky and still won. Next time I will work harder and hope to produce more exciting games. My preparation today was really lackluster.
- You don't get to play alot in SPL.
▲ SPL is not something I can play in just because I want to. (laugh) I am working hard on it, I will get my chances soon.
- Any final words?
▲ Our coaching team put alot of effort into helping me with the games today, I really want to thank them. Also, although I don't get to play alot, I am working hard continuously, and I will repay the fans with even better competitiveness in the future.
