The two Korean North American representatives for the League of Legends All-Stars event were able to showcase their deep friendship since moving to NA.
The Immortals’ former jungler Kim “Reignover” Yeu-jin and Cloud9’s top laner Jung “Impact” Eun-yeong talked more in detail about their relationship as two Korean players in North American teams. During a video interview with OGN, Impact joked that they “aren’t close at all” but Reignover revealed the actual depth of their friendship.
“I’m the same age as (Impact), and because he has such a great personality, I was able to become friends with him quickly,” Reignover said. “I hope that (Impact) doesn’t leave North America while I’m playing in NA.”
Of the five representatives of North America for this year’s All-Stars, Reignover also said that he isn’t that close with the other three, and that he wanted to take the time to get to know them.
“I am sort of close with (Zaqueri “Aphromoo” Black), but I barely talked with (Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg) or (Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng) yet. I think if I talk with them and get close to them while I’m here, I think we should be able to win (games).”
Impact had some choice words for his old teammates from SK Telecom T1, Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok and Bae “Bengi” Seong-ung, who are representatives from Korea for this year’s All-Stars event, and are also part of Team Fire along side NA.
“I’m a little worried about (Faker) during Assassin Mode since he likes to make flashy plays, so I hope he plays a little more safely,” Impact said. “As for Bengi, I just hope he doesn’t drop the ball too much. I think he’ll do well, maybe.”
Impact also asked the fans not only support the Korean representatives, but also show some support for NA, since they are on the same Team Fire.
