Going into his first international tournament in 1 year and 7 months, Kuro seemed to be eager to perform in the 2018 Rift Rivals. “I really wanted to perform last year. Since I got the chance this time, I’ll try to deliver a good performance.”
He added, “I really want to feel the Chinese atmosphere. Also, I’m looking forward to being there since I heard that there is a lot of good food. However, I’m going to be straightforward; I’m a bit of a picky eater.”
When his former teammate, Song “Smeb” Kyung-ho came up to him during the interview, Kuro looked at him and said, “The traditional powerhouse, EDG is a very strong team. It’s a relief that we’re the ones who are facing them not kt Rolster.”
Kuro also left a message of warning to his former head coach, Jung “NoFe” No-chu, jokingly saying “I’m not that sure how much he changed compared to the past. Well, I might as well see this time.”
Lastly, he promised he’d deliver good results for the fans. “I’m representing the LCK. I’ll be back with performance and results that I can be proud of.”
