I always tried hard and I think I practiced 12-15 hours a day from the age of 19.” “Now I’m World Champion, but when I wake up the next day, this joy will be gone. Whether I’m a winner or not, I always love eSports and StarCraft 2. But I’ve achieved my dream of being World Champion,” he said happily.
