-Congratulations! Your feelings?.
I’m very happy. So many people helped. I want to show my immense appreciation for everyone who helped me practice. I will make sure in the future I will become a gamer who will not be a foreign presence in big finals.
-You are the first winner after the formation of Ongamenet Sparkyz. Even when considering the entire history of KOR you are still the first.
It’s good now that I have got us off to a wining start. All of our players are great and have the ability reach the big stages. I feel I’m not worthy. (laughs)
-Boxer, Sync, Nada, Xellos, iloveoov and now you are the sixth Terran champion.
To be honest I lack the skill. I got lucky at times. Having won it I must feel responsible for my future performances and ensure I win based on skill rather than luck.
-You became the champion who had played the fewest games to do so in all Starleague history.
When I first debuted I managed to qualify for the Gilette OSL. Then it seemed like I played so many games to get there. However compared to then it doesn’t seem so hard now.
-Which was the hardest game in today’s match?
Game 2 was the hardest. I was not confident about the map and also I lost the first game so I felt a lot of psychological pressure. Thanks to Chojja’s mistake I could win. Had I lost that I would not have been so certain about victory. Game 2 was the crucial turning point in today’s match.
-The first game was tense but you lost out in the end.
I thought I had the advantage all game. I personally didn’t think I was nervous but it was clear my mind and my hands weren’t fully warmed up. I made too many petty mistakes that cost me the game.
-You lost to Chojja before in the lead up during the match in Proleague.
It was all my fault. I had a build prepared for the final but I did not use it in that game thinking to save it for later and as a result I lost. I told my team mates and they said it will be alright as long as I do well in the finals. I apologize as well as thanking them for their support.
-Even your parents came to support you by your side.
My parents had the most faith in me. That was one of the main reasons why I could win. From now I will work hard to repay them even more.
-How did you practice and who helped the most?
Obviously my teammates helped the most, but special mention goes to JiHyeon of Samsung Khan. He even phoned me a couple of times asking if I needed any help. I’m very thankful for that.
-Where will you use your winner’s prize money of 40,000,000 won?
I will first spent it to buy all my team mates a dinner. Then I will do the same for a few others who helped me. The rest will go into my savings account.
-Many people tipped Chojja to take it as he had the upper hand in big stage experience.
Before I cared too much about what other’s had to say, to the extent I let my feelings get hurt. However I became stronger after my initial slump. Maybe I become more arrogant? (laughs) I don’t agree with anyone who has different thoughts to me. I knew I could win against Chojja and that’s what I focused on.
