London Spitfire’s All Star Off-Tank, Jun-ho "Fury" Kim is known for his consistent D.Va play and omniscient awareness of enemy ultimates. However, in an interview after the Spitfire swept the Boston Uprising, Fury revealed another skill—speaking great English.
Upcomer spoke to Fury in his first all-English interview, where he discussed how he spent the mid-season break, his thoughts on D.Va’s nerf, and the best food he’s tried while traveling with the Overwatch League.
Fury: Yes, I went to Korea and met my family and friends. I got two of my wisdom teeth out, too. It hurt when I was recovering from my wisdom teeth. I just stayed home and was playing games.
Actually, I don’t like bright colors because my skin is a little dark. So I’d like more black or dark jerseys. But our jersey is still so good.
Yes, we played a lot of Havana in the live servers, in custom game workshops. I’ve played Havana a lot, and I think it’s better for defense. Havana is fun. A higher team will like Havana more because defense is easy, especially the second point.
I saw the patch notes. I think every D.Va player will be influenced. When Defense Matrix is decreased, I think maybe even if I eat enemy gravitons, it’ll be so hard. I think it’s not good for me, but when this patch comes to the live server, I just will adapt. Any patch coming out, it’s not a bad patch or good patch. I just adapt to each patch by playing more.
I just focus on our team, and our communication and relationships to my teammates. We had a few weeks where we just focused on ourselves. Also, we’re thinking about what compositions the other team will prepare.
At this point, Fury’s teammate Seung-tae "Bdosin" Choi and General Manager Seunghwan "Robin" Lee come in.
Robin: How’s he doing?
Upcomer: He’s doing great, his English is amazing.
Bdosin [teasing Fury]: AMAZING!
Fury laughs and turns back to the interview
Fury: When I was in middle school, I practiced English more for my exams. When I was on Team Liquid, I played along with a translator too. I want to learn. If I learn English, I can communicate with teammates from other nations, and I can communicate with our London fans.
Fish and chips were so good [laughs]. Every food is good to me.
We ate some barbeque, but that barbeque is not as good. I like Korean barbeque more.
Maybe in Stage 4, the meta will change. So I think Stage 3 is our last chance. I want to beat a higher ranked team.
