The double-edged sword chose to become a weapon that was sharper and more dangerous to handle than dull.
Liv Sanbak won Nongshim Red Force 2-0 in the first game of the 3rd week of the 2023 ‘LoL Champions Korea (LCK)’ spring regular season held at the LCK Arena in Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 1st. With 4 consecutive wins, 4 wins and 1 loss (+3), it became the sole second place.
The foundation of Liv Sanbak’s promotion lies in the high ‘weight class’ of mid laners. Lee Joo-hyun, who cracked an egg by being named to the LCK All-Pro Third Team last summer season, continues to be in good shape this season. Although it failed to add POG points against Nongshim that day, it was selected as POG four times during the previous four matches and is running alone in first place in the POG race.
Liv Sanbak’s play is unstoppable. Even though it is a team without veterans, the operation is flexible. Lee Joo-hyun is also attempting high-risk, high-return play more often than last year. “Aggressive play is a good play,” he said in an interview after the match against Brion on the 30th of last month.
This was possible because the coaching staff fully supported Lee Ju-hyeon’s aggressive play. Lee Joo-hyun said, “What the coaching staff demands is also an aggressive play. He feels that he is growing himself,” he said.
Coach Sang-wook Ryu also mentioned Lee Ju-hyeon’s tendency and direction of play after the Nongshim match. Coach Ryu said, “Lee Joo-hyun is a double-edged sword,” but “Lee Joo-hyun is far above other players in the physical (mechanical) part, so I try to make the most of that. His teammates also help with that, so it seems like there is synergy.”
Stepping on the accelerator pedal harder without putting the brakes on the runaway locomotive is also related to Ryu’s game philosophy. He, who played as a mid laner during his active career and stepped on the Worlds stage, said, “You have to play aggressively so that you can win psychologically when you are matched in a player-to-player match in the game.” ”he said. 토토사이트
