In a broadcast interview after the match, Han Wang-ho said, “Last year, we won a lot against D-Plus Kia, but we all won in full sets, so we were very worried.”
On this day, Han Wang-ho, who received the POG in the second set, enjoyed the honor of winning the POG three times in a row. Regarding this, he humbly said, “I was lucky to win because all my teammates were good,” and “I was lucky to have received a lot of champions who seemed to have carry power.”
Gen.G and Dplus Kia raised expectations with a head-to-head match between top teams. However, when I opened the lid, Gen.G’s one-sided performance stood out. Regarding this, Han Wang-ho also showed his humility. He said, “I’ve been very wary of D+Kia since last year, and I’m still doing well, and as I said painfully, ‘Canyon’ Kim Geon-bu always showed good form, so I think I won today simply because I was lucky.”
In the second set of the day, Han Wang-ho chose to buy even after seeing the Sivir of his opponent’s long-range dealer Kim “Deft” Hyuk-gyu. In response to the question, he said, “Actually, I was reluctant, but Maokai, who was banned in the first set, was released in the second set, so I chose Bai because playing Maokai seemed to be the opponent’s intention.” I’m reluctant, but I’ve seen cases where I did well by using my ultimate after using a bang, so I believed in that part.”
The next opponent for Gen.G, who kept the second place, is Liv Sandbox. Regarding the next match, he concluded the interview with confidence, “I’m worried because ‘Willer’ Jung-hyun Kim has been in good shape lately, but I think he’ll be comfortable with a lot of good junglers so far.”
