Lee "GBM" Chang-suk has played in Korea, North America, and Europe, and he wants to add more to his travel checklist.

The Nexus Podcast hosts Gabe and Lisa sat down with GBM to discuss all the differences that each region has, from solo queue to training regiments to the great outdoors.

Together, they also discuss GBM's roleswap, why it happened, what he learned, and why the heck he decided he's going to switch back to his original role.

Then, the crew dives into language and communication differences between Korea and the west, and we even get a little insight into who might be the best player from the west to be imported into the LCK, if any. We then look at GBM's coaching aspirations, what kind of coach he may want to be and what style suits him best.
