On the 15th, SKT took down CG in day 4 of the group stages in the 2019 LoL World Championship. SKT’s legendary mid laner, Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok showed flawless execution with Akali, and had the most one-sided victory of the group stages so far.
The “Unkillable Demon King”, Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok, joined Jeesun Park on the official LCK broadcast to share his thoughts about the victory.
Congratulations on the victory. How does it feel to go 3-0 in round 1 of the group stages?
We have a lot of tough opponents in our group, so every win was very valuable. I’m glad to go 3-0, but we still have matches left, so we will prepare for those well.
Again, you’ve had 0 deaths this match. It fits the nickname, “The Unkillable Demon King” really well. Do you like that nickname?
I thought it was childish at first, but it grew on me. I think it fits me well, especially when I recently had 0 deaths.
How did you set up the early dive at bot lane?
Our bot lane was getting ganked, and I just went to save them.
You’ve met your former teammate, Huni. He jokingly kept mentioning that he wants to meet your team, so how does it feel to play against him?
Their team was behind, so he didn’t pose that much of a threat. However, it was fun to play against him after all this time. We’ve met as enemies before, and it was fun to meet like this again.
You become better as the stage becomes bigger. What’s the secret behind it?
I have no idea (laughter).
How will you recharge and prepare for the next round?
Ever since I came to Europe for Worlds, I've been feeling very fatigued. I’ll make sure to take care of my health and perform better.
