IU said, "I remember the first time when I started with B2ST's Gikwang. I once said 'MCkayo' instead of 'Inkigayo' by mistake."

As the MCs that fit best with her, she chose KARA's Nicole and Goo Hara and as the one she had the most difficult time, she said, "Hwang...," teasing her current partner, ZE:A's Hwang Kwanghee.

Internet users who saw this commented, "I'm so sad~ She was such a great MC," "Wow, it's been 2 years already," and "IU, we'll miss you!"
