bbq Olivers might have found their new star chef, and he is none other than Myunggu "Tempt" Kang.
In the second match of Day 2 of 2017 LCK Spring Split, bbq Olivers defeated MVP with the season's first pentakill by Tempt in Set 3. Tempt left an impression on fans with his impressive plays with LeBlanc and Taliyah that allowed bbq Olivers to win the match even after losing Set 1.
Here is our brief interview with him.
Congratulations on your first win and pentakill! How are you feeling right now?
I'm very happy to have turned the match around with my favorite champions after dropping the first set.
You picked LeBlanc as soon as the first banning phase was over. Were you certain that you were going to win with LeBlanc?
I've never lost a game with LeBlanc, so I was certain that we would win that game as soon as I picked her. LeBlanc should not get past the banning phase in the current meta.
Let's talk more about your pentakill. Can you tell us more about how it happened and how you felt afterwards?
I feel most confident with Taliyah, and I've practiced a lot with her too. I expected that teamfight to go badly, but my damage output was higher than I thought. So, I asked the team to keep going...and the rest is history. I'm very happy that this is not just my first pentakill in my career but the first pentakill of this season.
You seemed quite shy about doing your victory ceremony.
Well, it was my first time doing it in front of a camera. (Laughs) I think I'll do it more proudly next time.
Your next match will be against KT Rolster. How do you think the match will go?
They are one of the strongest team in the LCK this season, but I believe we have a chance as long as we prepare well enough.
Thank you for your time. Do you have anything that you'd like to add?
We promise that we'll play even better in future, so please cheer for us. I would also like to thank Chairman Yoon of Genesis bbq for being the main sponsor of our team.
