Below is the full text of the interview conducted by director Choi In-gyu and Kim “Clid” Tae-min.
I wonder how you feel about winning 2-0 in today’s match.
Coach In-gyu Choi: I’m happy to be able to go up to 4th place with 4 consecutive wins. Right now, the Guangdong Freecs performed well against strong teams, but it was even better because they won 2:0 against such Guangdong Freecs.
Tae-min “Clid” Kim: It feels good that the winning streak continues. As I mentioned before, I think I am in the process of developing my strength before the future match against a strong team. I think I will have to prepare well in the future.
He has been showing good performance lately. Compared to the beginning, how did you work hard?
‘Clid’ Tae-min Kim: I agree that the beginning was not good. I was at a loss, but I was able to overcome it with the help of coach Choi In-kyu, head coach Sohn Dae-young, and coach Lee “Mowgli” Jae-ha in many ways. I think it will get better in the future. I think it was very difficult mentally in the beginning. I’m fine, but to other people, it seems that I don’t look good. I also tried to find the cause. In the process, I was able to get help and get better.
As much as he has a career as a jungler, he seems to feel differently about Kim “Clid” Tae-min. What kind of player do you think Kim Tae-min is?
Director Choi In-kyu: A jungler must have a good personality so he can adapt to anywhere. There is a part where Kim Tae-min accepts and cares for his younger siblings, so he has adapted well to our team. I think he is a versatile player who catches what he needs to do well with any champion, whether offensive or defensive. That much he loves Kim Tae-min.
What kind of advice did Kim “Clid” Tae-min give to improve his performance?
Director Choi In-gyu: It’s not that he lacks personal ability or physical strength. When a jungler goes to a new team, he has a hard time matching his laner’s tendencies. Kim Tae-min himself had the feeling that he did not believe in himself in terms of his ability. He cared about filling his confidence and tuning it to his personality.
Compared to the beginning of the spring, I think my performance has improved somewhat, but
Kim “Clid” Tae-min: It’s hard to say with numbers. I have no limits. The goal is to do even better. The 2nd round of the regular season is underway, but since we are all running with the goal of winning the 2nd round, I think we should do well.
I want to hear your determination ahead of the match against a strong team Tae-min
“Clid” Kim: There are many teams that couldn’t win in the first round. Even when the coach and I came to interview the loser, I had a strong desire for revenge. Since I have that mindset, I think it would be better if I take revenge and even succeed.
Last thing I want to say 온라인바카라
Coach Choi In-gyu: We will prepare well for the next match, Nongshim Red Force, as well as the remaining round 2 matches. We ask for your support.
Kim “Clid” Tae-min: I don’t think we should be vigilant. I will prepare well and show a good image. Thank you to the fans who continue to support us. I would also like to thank the secretariat staff for their hard work behind the scenes.
