It is great to see you at Worlds stage once again. I’d like to ask how you are feeling. It was very important for us to win the first match of the tournament. I believe this victory has set up a good environment for us to continue into the quarterfinals. I’ll continue to perform well for the rest of the matches. SKT has brought some very interesting picks as they came in to play against Fnatic. Faker, you drafted Tristana at the mid lane. Could I ask what your reasoning was, for going with the Tristana mid pick? I saw someone play Tristana mid at the play-in stage. It looked pretty fun. So … So I had some practice on Tristana. Then the situation came for me to pick her, so I did. SKT drafted both Tristana and Kayle today. People expected Tristana to be the AD carry, and Kayle to go to another lane. Then the swap happened. Was this a pre-planned draft? Or was this an improvised response to the opponent’s Garen-Yuumi bot lane pick? It’s a secret. Sure. Thank you. So SKT drafted such, then successfully executed a level one invade at level one. It was a good start for SKT, with you taking a kill. Could you walk me through that level one invade? It could have worked out even better for us, and it ended up being a regretful situation from our side. Still … The start of the game … It didn’t make much of a difference. But Faker, I saw you go on a 8-kill killing spree in that game. Yet, do you still believe there is an improvement you could make from today’s performance? I believe I could have been more proactive on that match today. I think I am a little regretful about that. Recently, the new Worlds anthem — Phoenix — was revealed. Faker, did you get to watch the music video? I did have a glance, but I want to have a more thorough watch after this is over. So I only watched it once. Could I ask if you watched the video from the beginning til the end? Yes, I did. And … I was very happy because I get a lot of screen time, and also the video was very well put together. Caps, Rookie, and you had significant screen time on Phoenix’s music video. Faker, you were represented by Karma. There was a bit of … A redemption arc narrative on the video. When you watched the music video, was it relatable to your current situation in any way? It did seem to visualize my emotional state really well, I … Felt that it was good. When I watched it, I thought that I should perform even better from now. What was your favorite part of the music video? I only watched it once, so I don’t remember much. I hope you progress further up the World Championship and get many more chances to watch the video. When the group stage kicked off, they played a teaser video. Faker, you seemed to emphasis the fact that SKT attended many worlds, and won many worlds. Faker, as you just finish off your first match, what is your state of mind or resolution? I wanted to start getting good results all the way from the group stage, and … We have won the first game, and I will be in an easier state of mind for future games. I’m happy about that. What’s the team atmosphere like at the moment? I don’t think the current team atmosphere is bad. However … I think there is a room for improvement. Sure. I’ll look forward to everything. Next, SKT will be facing RNG. They are perceived as a very formidable team. Faker, in your most recent match against RNG you showed some very good performance. Faker, what are your resolutions for that match-up? RNG, of course, is a very powerful team. We have to prepare hard — They are an opponent we must defeat at all costs. You also have to go against Clutch Gaming, and what are your impressions on that team? Damonte, the mid laner of the team, expressed in many interviews his desire to go against you. If a team is on Group C, I consider every single one of them an enemy. Everyone is opponents that I must defeat. As of the team, Clutch Gaming — Yes, they are the 3rd seed team of LCS team but not a team that we can let our guards down. Thank you for the interview. Countless fans welcomed the fact that you are once again back at the worlds stage. When you stepped onto the stage today, the crowd chanted, Faker, Faker. If you have any words to share to these fans that longed to see you at Worlds stage, it will be appreciated. The fans have been giving me support, and I believe I must return this favor with good performance. In this Worlds, I will show even better performance than ever. Thank you for the interview. Thank you.
