How does it feel to take your first regular season win in a long time?
I had asked myself whether I should quit gaming, but being given another opportunity to play and being able to taste victory makes me happy.
How did you spend your time at home?
My waist and back were in bad condition, so I spent all day resting. The constant, excruciating pain made me want to die.
How has your health been recently?
I've exercised before I returned to the team house, so I can withstand the pain for now. For the sake of my body, I'll have to keep exercising.
You've returned to your team house after a long time away. How did it affect your performance?
When I played games at home, I was never able to win, so I worried about whether I should quit. When I returned to the team house, though, my skill level went back up rapidly as I practiced, which gave me a good deal of confidence. Now that I've taken one game, I will work hard to keep winning in the future.
Were you scheduled to be sent out today?
I was set to go out, but ByuN played so well that I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to play. I fortunately got the opportunity, and I'm happy that I was able to use it to win.
There were times during your game against aLive where you were on the verge of losing.
I had thought that my opponent would go for bio and built a large number of Mutalisks in advance, but he went for mech instead. That got me into a lot of trouble, but I somehow managed to buy enough time to mass up Brood Lords and gain a foothold back into the game. Once I managed to get a Fungal Growth off on all of his Vikings, I believed that I would win.
This was your first match during the regular season. Didn't you feel nervous?
Because of how strong the players behind me were, I wasn't nervous. But since the results of our match would be back up in the air if I lost, I resolved to try my best.
There is a lack of Zerg players on Prime, which gives great potential for you to shine. Are you confident in yourself for the future?
I'll have to keep playing to find out whether I'll do well. For now, I just want to make sure that I show any results at all. While I was at home, my teammates treated me like an unemployed person, so I want to show them that I can accomplish something.
Do you think that your team will be able to defeat FXO in order to advance?
I'm not very sure. I'm full of confidence in my ZvT, so I will show off some good play if I'm given a chance.
Do you have anything more to say?
When I was wondering whether I should give up gaming, MarineKing told me that the team needed me because the team was short on Zergs. It was thanks to the confidence that MarineKing-hyung instilled in me that I was able to start practicing again, so I'm very grateful to him. While I was at home, I gave my parents a lot of trouble due to my illness, so I want to tell them that I'm sorry.
ByuN told me to send my thanks to Lee Jae-Ho and and Han Baek-Gu. [T/N: I can't find these names anywhere, so they're most likely either some sort of staff or unrelated to SC2; it's possible, though unlikely, that the first is Light] Because he wasn't able to do an interview, I'm thanking them on his behalf instead. Finally, I want to thank my team's sponsors, Ttesports and OCZ.
