"This year was different. I started losing. There was no special reason for it. I was just personally cooled off. I lost my passion. I felt like a cog in a machine.
Because I am a pro, a public figure, people have expectations of me. And sometimes that makes me feel very tired. But in fact, I feel that I am blessed. I’m lucky to have the love of so many fans.”
- Lee Jaedong (State of Play)
