On Sunday April 7, with 573 total points from the judges, Akdong Musician was declared the winner of the SBS 'Survival Audition K-Pop Star 2' (KPOP Star 2) beating Bang Ye Dam who had a total of 570. With the final decision made, the brother and sister duo spoke and gave a victory speech with teary eyes.

After hearing the final results, Lee Chan Hyuk of Akdong Musician exclaimed with a somewhat puzzled expression, "I didn't think we'd make it this far.  After making our way to the Top 10, I still can't fully grasp that we've won."

Soo Hyun also had trouble speaking, saying, "I feel like we shouldn't be the ones standing here."

Second place finalist Bang Ye Dam was bright and cheerful. "Even though I couldn't win, I had a great time performing," he said with a wide grin on his face. "I gave it my all and have no regrets." 

For the final performance, the top 2 finalists had a mission to reinvent each other's songs and to combine them with a song recommended by the panel of judges. Akdong Musician combined Hanson's 'MmmBop' and Toy's 'Warm Hello' (뜨거운 안녕); and Bang Ye Dam reinvented Tamia's 'Officially Missing You' and Culture Club's 'Karma Chameleon.'
