It was full of laughs and tears. There were a lot of ups and downs and I gained a lot of nicknames as well. From now on, I'll be streaming to find the next act of my life. Come and see the part of me that you haven't seen before. You'll be able to find me on Youtube and AfreecaTV. Thank you for cheering for pro gamer TusiN. You'll keep cheering for me, right?”
