‘Emperors’ step forward… ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok Lee, ‘Wing’ Kim Heon-woo challenge for the first championship

‘Emperor’ is a title given to the strongest person in the world of sports. When a person’s skills, performance, and charisma are so overwhelming that no comparison can be found, the title ‘Emperor’ is given.

Two ‘emperors’ will compete to become the first champion at the Hangzhou Asian Games. The main characters are esports’ ‘Faker’ Lee Sang-hyeok (27, T1) and Breaking’s ‘Wing’ Kim Heon-woo (36, Jinjo Crew).

At the Hangzhou Asian Games, e-sports and breaking became official events for the first time in history. In particular, breaking was adopted as an official sport at the 2024 Paris Olympics. With the ‘emperors’ Lee Sang-hyuk and Kim Heon-woo, Korea is considered a strong candidate to win both events.

Lee Sang-hyuk is a living legend in the e-sports League of Legends (LoL) and is called ‘GOAT’ (Greatest of All Time). He has won the League of Legends World Championship, also known as ‘Worlds Cup’, three times and the Mid-Season Invitational twice, making him the most successful player in major international competitions to date.

In the esports industry where his player life is short, he has made an unusual 10 years since his debut, and is a ‘veteran veteran’ whose skills have not rusted at all even in his late 20s.

T1’s ‘Faker’ Lee Sang-hyeok is checking equipment before the start of the 2023 LCK Summer finals match (semifinals) held at the 2nd exhibition hall of Daejeon Convention Center in Yuseong-gu, Daejeon on the 19th of last month. yunhap news

Lee Sang-hyuk’s strength is his wide range of champions. He is good at handling most of the 160 or so champions that appear in LoL, but is especially famous for his skills in handling mid laners such as Galio, Ahri, Azir, Ryze, Leblanc, and Twisted Fate.

Lee Sang-hyuk has already risen to the ranks of legends, but the pain remains in the Asian Games. He also competed with the Taegeuk symbol at Jakarta Palembang AG in 2018, when e-sports was a demonstration sport, but was pushed out by China and only won a silver medal.

At this Asian Games, China is competing with Korea for the gold medal. Lee Sang-hyeok said after the LoL national team evaluation match against Taiwan on the 12th, “In fact, it is difficult to judge hastily how much performance the Chinese team will show without seeing it, but what is clear is that we have enough performance to win the championship.” He showed confidence.

Heonwoo “Wing” Kim, the artistic director of the b-boy team “Jinjo Crew,” is a representative Korean breaking player and a recognized legend in the b-boy world, having won more than 100 championships in total.소닉카지노

‘Wing’ Kim Heon-woo, who is active in the b-boy team ‘Jinjo Crew’, is acting. Kim Heon-woo will participate as a member of the Korean national team in ‘Breaking’, which was adopted as an official event for the first time in the Hangzhou Asian Games. Kim Heonwoo’s Instagram

While active in Jinjo Crew, Kim Heon-woo participated in Red Bull BC One (2008), British B-Boy Championship (2011), Battle of the Year (2010, 2018), Freestyle Session (2011), and R16 Korea (2010-2012). Until 2018, the group swept all of the five major breaking dance competitions.

Kim Heon-woo’s signature works are Two Thousand (2000) and Wingmill. The wing mill is a technology developed by Kim Heon-woo, who transformed the wind mill into his own style. While the existing windmill involves placing one’s shoulders and back on the floor, lifting one’s legs, and spinning around, Heonwoo Kim keeps his body crouched and alternately rotates his entire body, including his shoulders, back, crown, and arms.

Two Thousand is a technique in which one stands on a headstand, holds the axis with one hand, and holds the wrist of the axis hand with the other hand and rotates quickly. Kim Heon-woo is famous for his speed and greater amount of rotation than anyone else.

In this Asian Games, Japan’s Shigekix and Kazakhstan’s Amir are expected to compete with Kim Heon-woo for the gold medal. Kim Heon-woo attended a rehearsal for the Hangzhou Asian Games last July. She won a gold medal at the World Dance Sports Federation (WDSF) Asian Breaking Championships held in Hangzhou, China.

Kim Heon-woo said, “As a dancer, I have lived with pride in representing my country for a long time, and he feels the same way as a sports athlete,” and pledged, “I will definitely win a gold medal as a national representative.”
