"Being the main artist within the group itself makes me feel pressured. But what makes it worse is the fact that I'm a huge fan of you, RAIN. I've been a big fan of yours for a long time. You're my role model,” he said.

The former INFINITE member added that he constantly declared RAIN was the reason why he entered the industry. He surprised everyone when he revealed he auditioned for his company, J. Tune Camp, several times but got rejected. RAIN debuted MBLAQ under J.Tune Camp, on the other hand.

With that, the Rainism hitmaker apologized to him, but he received another powerful remark from the dancer about treating his performance as his fourth audition to his company.
