Special thanks to qudans, TimSozai, MAX (JinKyo), and Cheng for making this all possible!

Today,we have a time and have a lil talk with one of the best tekken player at the world,who the one that ever plays tekken will know this name,QUDANS,we are free to talk with him while he is in vacation from army now ^^
Hello and welcome to the interview, qudans~~!!

((Qudans)):i’m glad to meet you,too.i’m sorry to being late.i was meeting friends when i got holidays.i hadn’t had enough time for this.

Can u first introduce a little bit bout yourself?

((Qudans)):i’m byeong mun Son 22years old from Korea. i like hanging out and playing game.i also like a girl like everybody does haha.

Whats your first fighting game? Is it street fighter? or some other game?

((QUdans)):my first fighting game is fatal fury 2!
when i was 5years old, i met this game from brothers.
the end, i was abused by brothers because i was getting better than other players who played with me.

Which is your first tekken game?


How long have you been playing tekken’s series?

((QUdans)):i got serious from Tekken Tag.
when i joined Battle team in 2004,i tried to do my best until 2006.

How long do you spend playing tekken 5 DR everyday?

((QUdans)):about 12hours a day.

Do you think tekken is the best fighting game? Is there any other fighting game that u also like?

((QUdans)):it depends on person i think. some people like KOF, other people like Tekken..This question asked to me so i’ll speak my opinion.
i love Tekken very much. but other games are good game as well.

So what really make you wanna use devil jin? He is quite hard to use, i think ^^

((QUdans)):i has played DJ since TT(Jin). if i’m very good at using DJ, i would exceed the limit of system. i can show my style and personality with DJ.

Is devil jin your all time favourite characters out of the tekken series?

((QUdans)):only for Tekken.

What other characters that you also like apart from devil jin?

((QUdans)):basically, i like mishimas

Do you always go to the tournament?

((QUdans)):if there is the tournament, for sure i would go.Tourney makes me nervous and excited that’s why i like the tournament. everyone who joins the tournament is enthusiastic.

What was the score when you play against MS.Ryu ft30 back in 2007?

((QUdans)):i won against MS.Ryu.i can’t tell you the scores because i promised him.
it didn’t really matter about socres.we had a great time for it.

Have you ever play with dajung love?What do you think of him?

((QUdans)):i’ve never played with him. i heard he is quite good but i don’t know.

What about knee? Is he the toughest opponent you ever faced? What do you think of knee’s bryan?

((QUdans)):he was best rival. i felt good with the end of DR, my hands were injured. i couldn’t play well because i felt a sense of loss.

Ryan Hart used to be called the best tekken player? What do you think of him and his kazuya?

((QUdans)):honestly, he isn’t very good. Compare to Korean Mishima players.but he is also good.

I personally think MS. Ryu and MS.Ryu 2nd are really good player, what do you think of them?

((QUdans)):both are quite good. 2nd has a possibility to improve.
in the future, he will be the best player in Japan.

Are you happy to play against another country’s teken player? like MS.Ryu and Ryan Hart?

((QUdans)):of course i’m happy to do that.we have same hobby. it makes us close.
there is no doubt about it ^^

Who’s the number 1 tekken player in your heart? Do u think who else is very good with other fighting games like street fighter?

((QUdans)):all of games is same i think.for any reasons, thing’s changed.
anybody can get No.1 , it can’t be long.doing a practice and liking tekken players become No.1

Have you play tekken 6 before? If so, what do you think of tekken 6?(If not, just skip the next few questions)

((QUdans)):i have played a little bit.
It is enough to attract people.

Is tekken 6’s rage system good or bad?

((QUdans)):i think it’s good for me. i feel thrilled about it.

A lot of people say tekken 6 is all bout juggling/ air combo, what do you think?

((QUdans)):i thought about that.but players can change the game. depends on how to think.

What do you think of tekken 6’s bosses, are they too big(Azazel and Nancy)?

((QUdans)):i saw once, too strong!! haha.

Do you think any characters thats broken in tekken 6?

((QUdans)):Weak and strong characters are no meaning. just think about how to play well. that’s the answer.

What do you think of the new characters in tekken 6??(especially bob)

((QUdans)):i haven’t played with bob. but In Tekken6, there are no weak characters

Will you play Tekken after you come back from the Army?

((QUdans)):i’m not sure but i’ll play for fun.
if i get a goal, i would come back.

Do you ever think to play games as your future carreer?

((QUdans)):if there is a league like StarCraft in Korea, then, i wanna be a progamer.

What was the highest tournament price that you ever get? Which tournament was that?

((QUdans)):2000 US$ i think at EC6 tournament. that day was 4 tournament and i won all of it.(most tekken players knew that my hands were injured so i tried to practice with pad.)

Last questions, do you think the mishimas are cheap?^^

((QUdans)):depends on person. people’s style makes the character not only mishimas but the others.

At last,wish your hands recover soon and comeback safe and sound from the army,
and re-play the tekken series games again.^^

thank you.
