David Song, Dec. 20, 2015, 2 p.m.
During this week’s broadcast for “King of Mask Singer”, another idol member’s performance had the crowd and judges speechless with his passionate and mature talent. Using the alias “Bungoeppang Dad Bought For You”, the male idol performed his rendition of Im Jae Bum’s “For You”, a song that is known for it’s difficulty. [SPOILERS AHEAD]
Although the performance was definitely awesome, the idol lost the final round and revealed his identity to be MBLAQ’s G.O, to which a massive round of applause was given from the judges. All throughout the episode, G.O was given compliments on his technique and talent that isn’t seen in many idols.
In the interview following the performance, G.O said that he regained confidence as a singer after appearing on the show. He commented, "When Kim Gu Ra and everyone was shouting 'G.O fighting,' I almost cried, but then I held back. There are so many people who are genuinely rooting for me and yet why did I think that I was all alone?"
G.O continued on to say, "When you work together (as a group), you develop this family-like love. But that has been somewhat broken. I would ask questions like, 'What am I singing for?' and went through an identity crisis. Right now, I think that I found my confidence through 'Masked King.' I will work hard to have an active music career."
