SK Telecom T1 Jung Myung Hoon (Fantasy) “I wanted to break Lee Young Ho’s (Flash) winning streak”.
If it wasn’t for Flash’s 13 all win streak, he would have gathered attention with his record as well. This season with a 11 win 2 loss record not falling behind in wins or win percentage is SK Telecom’s Jung Myung Hoon (Fantasy). Also when he wins he just won a very normal game so there weren’t many chances to interview him. Even the games he win with flair, his team lost so he had been called unlucky.
Q. It’s been a long time since an interview. How do you feel?
Fantasy – It’s been way too long. It feels like I haven’t been in the interview room for a long time too. Through interviews I wanted to meet my fans. I just wanted to interview. (laugh)
Q. You have a great record this season but you had seemingly bad luck.
Fantasy – This season the team's pace and my pace did not match well. Weirdly, I get easily covered up. (laugh) Even with a decent record, it did not match up to Flash’s and if I won there are many times my team lost so it feels like I did not get noticed, I felt sad. I hope I play well in the games remaining and our team goes into the post season. If we get in, this turns into a situation where you get the spotlight so I want the post season to come faster.
Q. You seem to show perfect play when you win.
Fantasy – Since we prepare one match for 1-2 weeks, I have lots of time to prepare and the build becomes more solid so I won easily. However there seems to be a lacking ‘impact’ of a game so I’m a bit sad (laugh). I hope there will be more chances to play in the future. Its good preparing for games meticulously but I think it was more enjoyable when I was busy. Because there is no Starleague at the moment and the removal of the Ace Match, something feels missing. I have more time to rest now, that seems good on the surface but it reduces chances to show good play for players who do not get as many chances.
Q. Choi Yeon Sung (iloveoov) coach entered the army; you’re still doing very well.
Fantasy – Even when ooV coach was here, in the end he gave me the green light to play the way I wanted to play. I think that’s why I adjusted so fast.
(ooV best coach <3)
Q. You talked about your disappointment on the reduced number of matches.
Fantasy – After becoming a 5 set match, players that played behind me was reduced. Even if it does not change to a 7 setter, I hope they increase the number of matches so more players can play. I felt this looking at recent situations.
[T/N – Hyung = a way for a younger male to address an older male, usually friendly]
Q. You might be sad for Starleague not opening yet.
Fantasy – I understand Heo Young Moo (JangBi) hyung’s thoughts (laugh). After winning the Starleague he has to continue that momentum but he did not have a chance to. I read JangBi hyung’s interview yesterday and I absolutely agree (laugh).
Q. Did you want to stop Flash’s winning streak?
Fantasy – the reason I was sent on Ground Zero was to stop Flash’s winning streak. I made a complete game plan to stop Flash so I was disappointed when I played someone else. I have the build saved so with the intention of using it in the post season I will continue it improve it. Even up until out match with KT Rolster, I still had the most win king title in mind. If I beat Flash the win difference would have been only one so I thought it was possible but it did not work out so I gave up on that title.
There are many streaks that end abruptly and hard to predict, but whoever stops him it will be interesting.
Q. Any last words?
Fantasy – It’s been so long I don’t know what to say (laugh). This season my TvZ improved Lee Yae Hoon (Sacsri) and Bang Tae Soo (Alone) joined out team so the practice environment really improved. I want to thank both of them. Also during our Fan meetings we could not do it properly so I felt sorry for our cheering fans. I will do my best for us to enter the post season.
