Flash! "I must practice vulture, tank fighting some more."
-Before the interview, you had a very frustrated look on your face.
The path that I must travel is still very long and to celebrate already seems like a foolish thought. I'm happy to advance, but it seems that I have not shown it through my facial expression (laugh). I am actually very glad inside.
-You lost to Really in the second set.
After the first tank battle, I knew that the game would be very hard. I thought it was do-able but after the game, my coach told me that it was pretty much over (rough translation). It was from that point in the game that it began to become harder.
-You lost to Jaedong and was criticized for your loss in SPL.
I'm always nervous/anticipate when I play against Jaedong hyung, and most of the time I don't care whether or not I win or lose. But when you play in a big stage you are forced to care about whether you win or not, and because I really wanted to win against Hwaseung in the last match so I felt really competitive. Reach -hyung was sent out to play and I really really wanted him to be able to give an interview and I was angry at myself that I could not help make this come true. I do not have anymore to say about that day.
-Recently, KT lost 0:4 for the first time.
I was really shocked. Sadly we lost like that when our coach wasn't here, so I think our coach was quite shocked, so I was really sorry to him. I will prepare very hard to make up for it in the 6th round.
-Last month Fantasy, this month Jaedong has surpassed you to be rank #1.
It's been a while since I let the ranking bother me (laugh). That is why I do not care much for it, there are so many points that build up from last year that I don't think I can make it back to #1 even if I win this MSL. I will still work very hard and hopefully become #1 again.
-Who do you want to meet in the Ro8?
I don't have anyone in particular that I would like to face, but I would like to face a zerg. However, I would like to save my zerg build that I have been preparing so maybe I should meet a toss or a terran instead. I still have a SPL match against Woongjin to worry about so I would like to save the build. The time it took to create the build is precious and looking into the future, I think I will be able to advance further by saving this build (laugh).
-Is there anything else you would like to say?
I would like to thank BarrackS and Suny (I think, I'm not familiar with the Korean names of the KT terrans). Also, I practiced hard to play well with vultures and tanks in battle but it is very difficult (laugh). I would like to improve with dropships as well. Finally, today is Children's Day but it feels like I can no longer be considered a Child (laugh). I hope everyone has a great time and enjoys their day today.
