‘Owner’ Hyeon-jun Moon revealed the behind-the-scenes story about the 2nd set ban pick.
T1 joined the ranks of 3 wins by winning against Guangdong Freecs in the 2nd week and 2nd day of the 2nd week of the 2023 League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) Spring Split held at Roll Park in Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 26th. On this day, T1 brought out the joker pick, Caitlyn Supporter, in the second set, but POG went to ‘owner’ Moon Hyun-jun, who played an even role from ganking to teamfights with Sejuani.
In a broadcast interview after the match, Moon Hyeon-joon said, “I was wary of thinking that ‘Youngjae’ Ko Young-jae was a good player, but the match worked out well. It feels good to win 2:0.”
The 1st POG went to Min-seok “Keria” Ryu, who showed an amazing ultimate hit rate with Ash, but the bottom-dive teamwork shown by Moon Hyun-jun was also amazing. Moon Hyeon-jun explained, “The jungle was advantageous and the mid was also able to push the line. The bottom was able to design a dive, so I tried it and it led to good results.”
Also, when asked about the installation of the ward behind the 1st turret in the mid turret of the Kwangdong Freecs by Sang-hyeok “Faker” Lee in the 1st set, he said, “I practiced this combination a lot, and Sang-hyeok hyung installed such a ward so well every time I did it. Thanks to you. I was able to find the jungle well,” he said. 안전놀이터
Moon Hyun-joon, who was in charge of the team’s front line with Sejuani in the second set, said, “I made an expression that I didn’t want to do Sejuani from the ban pick, but it was a necessary champion for the combination and I enjoyed it.” Actually, I said I wanted to play Nidalee in the second set, but it didn’t work. I don’t know when I’ll be able to come out, but I’ll work hard until then.”
T1’s next opponent is Deplus Kia. With the two teams facing off in the Saturday Showdown, Moon Hyun-joon concluded the interview by revealing his ambition, “I will try to win as cleanly as you expect.”
