Q: What was your experience like with TDK and Renegades?

When I was in TDK and Renegades, both teams were at the bottom of the standings, and because of that, I was struggling in both my work and personal life. But that actually gave me a lot of experience, especially with NA LCS, and it ended up helping me out a lot.

Q: NV has been performing really well in practice. What's keeping you from performing as well on stage?

Our team performs better in practice and scrims, but we underperform on stage. I don't know the reason, but nowadays we are doing better and better. Even today's game vs. TSM, we almost won but narrowly lost. If we played like before, we would've been crushed, but nowadays we are performing better and better, so I'm not too worried.

Q: Why do you like playing with Seraph?

It's not that I like him in particular, but we have good synergy and we're good friends. I trust him and I feel like he's a good partner for me.

Q: What are the differences between your fans in China, Korea, and North America?

In Korea, I wasn't well-recognized and didn't play for a long time, but in China and NA LCS, I played for quite a bit of time. I really appreciate that, as a player, I have fans. I don't have any thoughts on which regions' fans are better, because in every region, fans supported me well, and I am thankful for that.

Q: Why do Chinese and Korean players want to play in North America, other than the money?

In terms of the environment, obviously I can learn English here, and it's a great country to live in, as in it has higher living standards than other countries. I'd heard about this from other players too, and I think that's why a lot of players want to come play in NA LCS.

Q: Is there anything else you'd like to add?

I know we've been underperforming and are in the bottom of the standings, but we are doing better now: we won a few games and even performed well against stronger teams like TSM. I think, if we aren't intimidated and just perform like how we practice against stronger teams, we can get to playoffs and show great performance. So I hope you guys can expect more from us.
