Please let down the burdens you have in your heart and do what makes you feel good. Like we said before, let's meet again in the professional world.”

Before judging Lee Seung Hoon's stage that day, YG had revealed his affections for him. He said "Apart from the points or rankings I really wanted to tell you this. I really favor Lee Seung Hoon out of the four contestants who are here. It is because you remind me of myself. I can't sing nor rap either. Though you may not be the main, we need people like Lee Seung Hoon who is unique and can come up with brilliant ideas.”
