Today, foreign media Daily Esports published an article entitled “The Face of Rookie’s Model Korean Aid”. The main idea is as follows:
The IG team won the final championship by 3-0 in the final of last week’s S 8 World Finals against the representative FNC team from the European competition area. This is also the first time in LPL history to win the S series championship. IG has become the hero of writing a new history.
Among the IG team members who won the championship, Song Yijin, a middle-way rookie, was interviewed. Although the individual performance of the middle-way players in the 8th World Competition version is very important, the more important thing is that Rookie players can master and use Chinese and Korean, so he was chosen as the interviewee. After receiving a question from Quan Yong Jun (Roaring Emperor), Rookie first responded in Korean and then in Chinese, which satisfied both Chinese and Korean fans who came to Wenhe Coliseum in Incheon.
In the press questions after the competition, Rookie once again showed his excellent language ability. There were no Chinese-Korean translators at the interview site of the champion team in the media center, only Chinese-English and Korean-English translators. This is because Rookie’s mastery of Chinese and Korean has reached the point where no translation is needed.
When Chinese media ask questions to Korean players or staff members in the team, Rookie will help translate the questions and then translate the answers back to Chinese for explanation; Korean media also ask questions to Chinese players, Rookie, like a translator, takes charge of all the questions and answers after translating the languages of the two countries. Answer.
Rookie first joined the IG team in 2015. Before joining IG, Rookie played for KTA team in Korea. Finally, Rookie joined the IG team with Mafa and Kakao before the change of single team system in the Korean League in 2015.
The reason why Rookie can speak Chinese well is not only that he has been working in China for four years, but that no matter how long he stays there, his ability to translate the local language must depend on his efforts.
From this point of view, Rookie’s performance in the 8th World Championship is not only his own strength, but also his earnest learning of language and efforts to integrate into China as a foreign aid while living in China. It is not just game-related terms that Rookie players will use in their daily life. Chinese is also proficient, providing help to the Korean players who join the team, and playing an important role in shortening the distance between Chinese and Korean players.
Chinese fans are very enthusiastic about Korean players who can express their ideas in Chinese. Rookie overcame other singles in the All-Star vote after the World Finals in 2015 and took part in the All-Star Game in the first rank. He also became the first LPL player. The representative of the district went to the all star game in Korea.
The biggest difficulty for Korean players to join foreign teams in competitions is language. Although there will be no big problems for those who have lived abroad, most of the players who have been living in Korea can not really integrate into the local life without translation when they suddenly leave their hometown.
Judging from the success of these foreign aid players, most of them have mastered the local language and achieved excellent results by individuals or teams. Reignover players who helped FNC team to reach the top four in the S5 global finals have lived in Europe and the United States, and Huni players have also learned from Reignover players. With a lot of help, he quickly improved his English ability. In addition, the GBM player of the SUP team, who appeared in the finals this year, can master English proficiently and also undertake the task of helping his teammate Snow Flower translate.
In this way, ROKIEE players who are proficient in Chinese also set an excellent example for Korean players who are interested in overseas competitions in the future.
