Worlds 2018: A Lightning Round interview with the LPL’s Candice
Yushuang, also known as Candice, is the beloved interviewer for the LPL. Since she was working the 2018 World Championship, we had to pull her aside for a quick Lightning Round.
Our Lightning Rounds are made up of silly questions from people we’ve already interviewed, fans and more. We give the interviewees about five minutes to answer as many questions as they can as they pick from the jar. Some questions are League of Legends related, some aren’t.
The interview below has been edited for clarity and length.
What is one food you would never eat?
Candice: I eat everything! [laughs] Is there anything you don’t eat?
The Rift Herald: I have food I don’t eat! I don’t like carrots.
Candice: Alright, I’ll eat them. They’re good for eyes.
If you were trapped in a room and you could only have your computer or your [boyfriend] which would you pick? (From RNG’s Letme.)
Candice: I would pick my boyfriend!
Coke or Pepsi?
The Rift Herald: Nobody has said Pepsi.
Candice: Pepsi is … not that good. No one likes it.
If you could have any superpower, what would you pick?
The Rift Herald: Why?
Candice: That would be a superpower that would be super strong! Because you could see anything you’d like. [laughs] I’d know everything! Don’t say anything bad about me! I would watch you guys.
If you retire, what do you want to do? (From Afreeca’s Kuro.)
Candice: Play League of Legends. Become Master! Become Challenger! That’s my whole life goal.
Do you listen to kpop and if so, who is your favorite artist? (From txtlol.)
The Rift Herald: Do you listen to k-pop?
Candice: No, I don’t. I do listen to Jay Chou.
What is your favorite movie? (From Vitality’s Jactroll.)
Candice: I’m a boring person. I don’t have any favorite movie or favorite song, either.
The Rift Herald: Is there any movie you’ve watched recently that you’ve liked?
Candice: No! [laughs] I don’t watch that many movies. I’m boring. I don’t have my favorite things — songs, popstars, movies. I don’t have one!
Would it be funny if you got interviewed by WildTurtle? (From FlyQuest’s WildTurtle.)
The Rift Herald: Have you seen WildTurtle around? That was the question he wanted to add.
Candice: I think if I have to say, then I don’t know! [laughs]
When is the time you want to give up on your pro career the most? (From kt’s Smeb.)
Candice: I’m trying to be experience the pro gamer’s life. I’m trying to. I do want to. I’m just not that good! And I’ll never be a pro player! [laughs] I’m trying to, though.
If you could live in one video game world, which would you pick?
Candice: I don’t know. I don’t play video games. I do play League of Legends! [laughs] Maybe I could be … Lulu?
Candice: I would be … a singer? [laughs]
The Rift Herald: I could see it!
Candice: Really? You could see it? [laughs] Oh my god. You know every time I sing on stream, the fans will say, “Oh, we’ll give everything we have to you … if you stop singing.” [laughs]
What is the skin you hate the absolute most?
Candice: I don’t have that many skins …
The Rift Herald: Are there any you don’t like? Or ones you think are ugly?
Candice: No. I don’t have them. I don’t have money to buy them. So I like all the skins, if I can have them. My boyfriend is a caster and he has almost everything.
The Rift Herald: What? That’s crazy!
Candice: Yeah, there’s like 700 or more skins. He doesn’t have 16 of them. But I do have 16 skins.
The Rift Herald: So you guys make a complete set!
Candice: Yeah! [laughs]
The final task: Contribute a question to add for future interviews.
Candice: If there were only 10 minutes in your life, what would you do? Or what would you say to people?
The Rift Herald: So what’s your answer to that question?
Candice: I don’t know! I wasn’t prepared to answer! [laughs] It’s so hard. So maybe I would eat as much as possible? [laughs]
