The following is the full text of the interview with director Yoo Sang-wook and Kim Jung-hyun.
First of all, please tell us about your victory.
Director Yoo: I am happy with the win, and I personally feel very happy because I think I won without any mistakes.
Kim Jung-hyun: I am happy to have won 4 games in a row, and I am satisfied that the team management seems to have been neat.
What did you pay attention to while preparing for Nongshimjeon?
Manager Yu: What I felt while watching Nongshim’s games was that we could bring an edge in every line. So it was important to bring in a champion who could definitely have an edge.
Kim Jung-Hyun: Since I am a jungler, I watched the opponent’s jungle a lot, and since ‘Sylvie’ tends to make a clever movement in the beginning, I thought a lot about how ‘Sylvie’ would do the movement in the actual game.
Actively opened the fight from the beginning of the game.
Director Yu: The color of the team itself likes to fight. I think that part will naturally come out in all games.
Kim Jung-hyun: I don’t think we’ll push in that part because we’re good at the angle of engagement.
Where do you think Liv Sanvak is located in the West?
Director Yoo: If the current atmosphere continues, I think it will be in the western region. If you practice the same as you did, you will be able to maintain it.
Kim Jung-hyun: I think I can beat anyone, no matter who my opponent is, so I try to focus on our game without worrying about the opponent.
What’s the secret to Liv Sanvac’s winning streak?
Director Yoo: It seems that all players are improving because of their greed to want to do well. Also, the coaches, including myself, are diligently analyzing the opponent.
Kim Jeong-hyun: The coaches and coaches study ban-picks in the direction we need for each game. As long as the ban pick is good, I think I can win as long as I don’t make mistakes in the actual game.
What should Liv Sanbak do to improve?
Director Yu: I think there will definitely be problems that come from the difference in experience. I think we need to continue to develop so that there is no difference in areas such as operation later.
Kim Jeong-hyun: If the team goes halfway through the second half, the game can change just by judgment, so I think we need to keep paying attention to that part and give feedback.
Who is the most important player in Liv Sanvak’s rise?
Director Yoo: If I had to choose one player, I would choose ‘Budol’. Even when picking relatively unfavorable picks, he is faithful to his role and is helping the team a lot.
Kim Jung-hyun: I can’t pick just one. All five members are doing their best while creating synergy in their respective positions.
(To coach Yoo) Lee Ju-hyeon, the ‘Closer’, is called a ‘double-edged sword’. How does the coach see it?
‘Closer’ is definitely a double-edged sword. However, he has a much higher physical level than other players, so he tried to use that part as much as possible, and his teammates are helping a lot, so it seems like synergy is coming out.
(Director Yoo) Why did you order ‘Closer’ to go aggressive?
He believes that he must be aggressive to defeat his opponent psychologically. I think it’s good to be aggressive in any line.
The next match is against Gen.G. Please give me a word of determination.
Coach Yoo: I’m worried because Gen.G thinks all lines are good, but I think we can win enough if we continue as we prepared.
