SKT Untara says professionalism is the key virtue of a SKT T1 player.
On June 22nd (KST), SK Telecom T1 defeated ROX Tigers 2-0 in the 18th day of 2017 LCK Summer Split. SKT T1 managed to take both games despite ROX playing their best to catch up and even taking lead at times. Uijin "Untara" Park, playing Shen in Game 1 and Renekton in Game 2, showed a solid performance in key moments of the match, and we've had a chance to talk to him about his experience in SKT T1 during the press interview.
When Untara was asked about what being a member of SKT T1 is like, he summed it up with two virtues: professionalism and self-management. "Everyone is very very professional. Whether in league matches, scrims or streaming, a strong sense of self-management is required. I'm just focusing on improving myself while playing."
In fact, self-improvement and resolution seemed to be Untara's strong point when he was asked about how he came to join SKT T1. "I was grinding Ranked Games to join a pro team for Summer Split, and I didn't hesitate to join SKT because they approached me before anyone else. As for competing for starter position, I didn't really think of it as a competition, but I just thought that I'd get my chance if I do my best. I'm learning a lot from watching Huni play up close, so it's very helpful for me."
He also shared who he feels the closest among the players, and appreciated the sense of humor of a certain midlaner. "I'm sharing the room with Faker and Blank, and I think I'm getting along well with the two. I really like Faker's sense of humor."
