On the 17th of January, Afreeca Freecs won their first match of the 2018 LCK Spring Split against kt Rolster. Kim “Kiin” Gi-in had his first match as a Freec and displayed an impressive performance against Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho and contributed to the team’s victory.
The following is the interview with Kiin.
Q. How do you feel after clenching your first victory after transfer?
It’s my first match at Afreeca, and I’m happy that we won.
Q. Your performance was very stable. Did the team give you specific orders?
The team didn’t. I thought that if I was able to keep my ground, our team will have a better chance to win. I played Lucian after trying it many times in practice before, but we weren’t able to get good vision on the map in game 2, so the results weren’t good.
Q. You’ve shown different playstyles in Ever8 Winners and in Afreeca Freecs. What exactly is your style?
I like to play aggressive plays, but I can play in any style for the team’s victory.
Q. Smeb is one of the best top laners. Are you satisfied with your play against him?
I felt that he’s really good from a long time ago. He utilizes the jungler very aggressively. I will try hard to develop and get better than him.
Q. How’s the team atmosphere at Afreeca Freecs?
Everybody laughs and chats around, so the atmosphere is very bright. Spirit and Kramer joke around a lot.
Q. The next match is against Kingzone DragonX. What’s your prediction?
It’s hard to predict. Last summer, I wasn’t able to do anything against Khan, but I want to show something this year.
Q. Do you have any personal goals this year?
Becoming the champions is the no.1 goal. I think it’s possible, realistically. And I want to play at Worlds.
Q. Lastly, do you have anything to say?
I will do my best in the 2018 season and I won’t let down the fans who support.
