Faker on funny happening during the world championship

SK Telecom T1’s mid laner Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok said he was momentarily scared of finalist Samsung Galaxy’s veteran jungler Kang “Amition” Chan-yong.

During an video interview with Daily eSports, Faker shared a memorable story that happened on his way out from the shared practice room the day before the Oct. 29 world final.

“We used the same practice room, and I was saying that I think Samsung might win the world championships because they looked so good,” he said with a faint smile. “I stepped out later and found Ambition sitting on the sofa outside of the room. I was really scared.”

Faker also commented on the impressive performance by SKT’s new comer top lane Kim “Profit” Jun-hyeong during the KeSPA Cup.

“I think our top did really well,” he said. “I don’t think he’s as coordinated as (Lee “Duke” Ho-seong) so I think there needs to be more time. That being said, I think he’s very good with the unexpected solo kills in top lane.”

SKT’s support Lee “Wolf” Jae-wan was also interviewed, and according to Wolf, the thing that he wants the most is some sleep. He even confessed that he feels like he’s “caught the flu” thanks to the cold weather.

“I’m not feeling that great,” he said. “The KeSPA Cup game was a lot of fun, but the schedule is kind of tough so I really want to rest.”

Wolf also talked about SKT’s support sub Kim “TaeHoon” Tae-hoon. The fans weren’t able to see the new face like in the top lane, but Wolf gave a small glimpse of TaeHoon.

“Our TaeHoon is 18 years old, and since he’s young his mechanics are very good,” he said. “I’m trying my best to look after him, but he is a little introverted. He’s a talented friend. That’s why he’s on our team.”
