Asian Games ‘Superstar’ Faker Enters the Country amid Cheers From Chinese Fans… “Gold Medal this Time” About 100 Chinese fans cheer while watching Faker... Something Faker is familiar with When esports superstar ‘Faker’ Lee Sang-hyeok (27, T1) appeared at the arrival hall, about 100 Chinese fans started ‘physically fighting’. There were several fans who fell while running just looking at Lee Sang-hyuk. Although Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport in China was shaken by his appearance, Faker maintained his characteristic calm expression. **[카지노사이트](** In fact, Lee Sang-hyuk is very familiar with the enthusiastic response from Chinese fans. Lee Sang-hyuk arrived at Xiaoshan International Airport on the afternoon of the 22nd, a day before the opening of the Hangzhou Asian Games (23rd). Chinese fans who 'heard' the news of Lee Sang-hyuk's entry into the country rushed to the airport carrying carefully made placards and beautifully wrapped gifts. When Lee Sang-hyuk was caught on the baggage monitor, cheers erupted. It was a welcome welcome that no Korean player who has entered the country has ever received. Lee Sang-hyuk smiled and said, “It’s been a long time since I came to China. I’m really grateful that so many people came out and welcomed me like before.” ‘Faker’ [Lee Sang-hyeok]( is a ‘superstar’ in China, so much so that he is very familiar with this situation of being surrounded by fans and protected by bodyguards. Foreign media are also paying attention to ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok Lee. AFP and Reuters also called Lee Sang-hyuk 'a noteworthy player in this tournament' along with track and field's Mutaz Essa Barsim (Qatar), swimming's Qin Haiyang (China), and women's golf world number one Yin Luoning (China), all of whom are 'authentic sports'. He pointed out that he is a player who must play. Reuters said, "Lee Sang-hyuk is called the 'Michael Jordan of e-Sports'. For the past 10 years, Faker has dominated '[League of Legends]('," and added, "As e-sports became an official event for the first time in the Asian Games in Hangzhou, Faker has “It became the most attractive card of the tournament,” he explained Lee Sang-hyuk’s high status. Lee Sang-hyeok said, “There were some difficult aspects because players from different teams formed one team, but as we trained well together, the content is getting better.” He added, “I will show you a better side as many people, including foreign media, are interested.” “I will do my best to finish the Hangzhou Asian Games well,” he said. Esports became a demonstration sport at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang, and was adopted as an official sport at the Hangzhou Games. Five years ago, Korea, led by Lee Sang-hyuk, won the silver medal behind China. Lee Sang-hyeok said, “I will participate in this competition with a different team from five years ago. This time, I will prepare well so that I can win the final.” Some ‘old sports fans’ are uncomfortable with the adoption of e-sports as an official event in comprehensive sports competitions. However, in a situation where many existing sports have lost popularity and enthusiasm for the [Asian Games]( has plummeted, e-sports are seen as a card that will change the paradigm of comprehensive competitions. There is no longer any sense of difference between professional gamer ‘Faker’ and national team player ‘Lee Sang-hyuk’. Lee Sang -hyuk emphasized, "This Asian Games as a national representative is very important. However, since I am a professional gamer, it is natural for me to do my best in every game."
