Ryu talks to Korean press after KT/SKT game

KT Rolster has finally got its revenge against SK Telecom T1 on Friday with a miraculous 3-2 reverse sweep, putting them in the finals of League Champions Summer. KT’s struggle with SKT is closely associated with former mid laner Yoo “Ryu” Sang-Wook, who is now part of the H2K Gaming in the European League Championship Series. Upon hearing the news of his old teammates finally breaking through against SKT, an elated Ryu spoke with Fomos’ Son Chang-Sik.

“It’s regrettable that I can’t be on that stage with my old teammates, but I’m happy nonetheless to see them make the finals,” he told Fomos.

Ryu also added that it “would have been better if the victory was in the finals,” and hoped that KT would go on to win the summer split against the first place seed ROX Tigers.

Ryu was part of KT Rolster Bullets from 2012 to 2014, and his most infamous moment to date is still the Zed showdown he had against Faker in 2013, a fight famous enough to have a YouTube feature from LoL Esports’ channel.

Ryu has endured his own up and down career since leaving for the European LCS. After a strong start to this year’s spring split, H2K finished fourth in the playoffs. Ryu missed some games in the middle while trying to acquire an appropriate visa.

The summer split has been another roller coaster for H2K, which is back in the playoffs again and will play Fnatic on Saturday morning in a quarterfinal match.
