On April 10, DWG KIA defeated Gen.G in the finals of the 2021 League of Legends Champions Korea Spring Split. With a clean 3-0 sweep, DWG KIA won their fourth consecutive title following the 2020 LCK Summer Split, 2020 World Championship, and 2020 KeSPA Cup. After the finals and brief celebration, the members of DWG KIA gathered for a press conference on Zoom.
ShowMaker: You’re watching the LPL right after you win the finals? You’re a monster, you know that?
Moderator: Who’s watching the LPL?
ShowMaker: Canyon is. He’s analysing the junglers.
Ghost: It’s hot in here. AC please. ‘Ice Age’ [One Piece reference – Ed]
Khan: My seat is right beside the AC, friend.
Ghost: You’re now allowed to get a cold.
Khan: [Laughter] It feels to be a part of the All-LCK first team and receive Finals MVP. [To Ghost] You still have a lot of opportunities. This is my last chance. Ah, this water tastes good.
Moderator: It must suck to not be able to properly celebrate.
Khan: Of course. We can’t have our victory dinner. We’re very strict when it comes to following COVID regulations. We’re not allowed to have gatherings over five people.
DWG KIA, congratulations on the championship victory. You’re the first team to win the LCK championship after franchising has been implemented. How do you all feel?
Khan: It’s a monumental victory for sure, and it feels really good that I etched my name in LoL Esports history. I hope that tonight will be remembered for a long time. I’m grateful.
Canyon: I thought that this series would be a lot closer, but I’m glad that it ended in a 3-0 victory. I’ll need to practice and improve for MSI.
ShowMaker: I’m ecstatic, but it still feels pretty surreal. I want to win MSI and relive the excitement of victory.
Ghost: Due to the marksman meta changing quite a bit throughout the split, I struggled throughout the split. I’m very happy that we eventually won the split, and I want to continue winning.
BeryL: This is our first time becoming Spring split champions, and I feel the timing of it all is on point. I’ll make sure to put on a great performance at MSI in May as well.
kkOma: I like the word, ‘first’ a lot. It feels great to be a part of DWG KIA’s first Spring championship victory, and feels even greater to do it with incredibly gifted players. I want to go to MSI and also take DWG KIA’s first MSI victory.
PoohManDu: It feels great to win the Spring split and go to MSI. I’ll make sure to do well at MSI as well.
(To kkOma) Tonight’s victory marks your 7th championship victory.
kkOma: Isn’t it my 8th time? I’m confused as well. (Laughter) I’m not sure, but I know it’s more than 7. To my knowledge, I think it’s my 9th.
