On day 18 of the 2021 LCK Summer split, kt Rolster managed to defeat Fredit BRION 2-0. It was a much needed win for both teams; KT needed it to turn the momentum for themselves, while BRO needed it to continue on their win streak. Despite BRO looking much better than they did in the Spring, KT managed to sweep the series.
The jungler for kt Rolster, Kang “Blank” Sun-gu, joined the press room for a post-match interview.
Whenever KT wins, it’s always 2-0, but when the team loses, the series always goes 3 games. Why do you think this is?
I think we lose focus when it goes to game 3. We received a lot of feedback in that regard, and we’re all trying to fix that aspect of our flaws.
At this point in the split, going for Baron Nashor must be somewhat traumatic because the game flips whenever KT tries to get Baron.
It’s one of the things that we’re working on the most. We’re figuring out our Baron timings.
Can you tell us about the Lissandra pick in game 1?
Our mid laner, Kim “Dove” Jae-yeon has a very wide champion pool, and he’s a really good player overall, so I wasn’t really worried.
Even in losses, people have praised KT’s in-game performance. Which of the team’s losses do you regret the most?
It’d have to be game 3 against T1. We lost because we made one too many mistakes, but found the things we need to fix, and pretty glad that we still have room for improvement,
KT’s last opponent of round 1 is Hanwha Life Esports. How will KT prepare for the match?
They’re also trying to find their momentum, so we’ll have to prepare well.
BRO subbed in their sub jungler in game 2. How do you compare the two junglers?
I think UmTi plays more safely, while Chieftain is a bit more aggressive, so I adjusted to the different playstyles.
Lastly, is there anything you’d like to say?
I really want to go to Worlds this year; I want to repay the fan support by achieving that goal.
