Leessang said, "First, we'd like to thank everyone who has made us more mature through words of encouragement and discipline. We had decided to focus on better music and performances. However, we do not want to hurt many people because of our decision and cannot cause burdens on them anymore that we decided to come back to the entertainment programs."
Gil and Gae Ri explained the background of this decision by saying, "After announcing our departure from entertainment programs, program producers and staff all made an effort to convince us otherwise, and along with encouragement from the fans and the viewers, we realized that quitting is not the only option."
Gil and Gae Ri ended the press release by saying, "We'll do our best to give joyful laughter to many people."
People who heard this news responded by saying, "Of course they should come back!" "I didn't realize the concert tickets for 'Infinite Challenge' were expensive... It was too much on the bloggers' behalf," "I was thinking that they were doing a good job... It is great that they're coming back," but also showed negative response with comments like, "I understand that they were saddened, but it doesn't look good that they went back and forth on the decision in just over a week," "I wish they were more careful when they made the first announcement."
