After SKTelecom T1’s win against the ROX Tigers in the Worlds semifinals, the players (minus Jun-sik “Bang” Bae) stuck around for a short press conference.
The press conference was split into two parts, with Sang-hyeok “Faker” Lee and Ho-Seong “Duke” Lee together in the first part and Sun-gu “Blank” Kang, Seong-ung “bengi” Bae and Jae-wan “Wolf” Lee in the second part.
Many people were interested in how the team kept their composure against the odd Miss Fortune support pick.

The unkillable demon king, Faker, noted about how he wasn’t tired during the long series, but instead he was hungry. He had a chocolate bar, so he was fine, though.

Wolf was asked if he played angrily, as he told another reporter before. To that he laughed and responded that he really released some of his anger today, but he’ll have to continue to play even angrier in the finals. He noted that the Miss Fortune pick was innovative, so next time, he’ll “have to release his anger with Miss Fortune.”
The team was in high spirits, smiling and making jokes to each other throughout the press conference, which was definitely nice to see.
SKT T1 will go on to play in the finals on Saturday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This is the team’s third time playing in the World Championship finals.
