Mnet has launched a new reality survival singing program called ‘We Kid’. We Kid is a singing audition program for that showcases talented kids as they show off their singing skills. Child contestants compete on a weekly basis to get paired with mentors in the music industry. One competitor in particular garnering a lot of attention is 6-year-old Lee Ha Rang.
For his performance, Ha Rang had prepared his very own rendition of Mino and Zico's "Okey Dokey," the lyrics for which he changed and wrote himself! Ha Rang's mother said, "Ha Rang is a huge fan of 'Show Me the Money.' He still lacks a lot in execution but he really loves rap." Ha Rang added, "Rap is an expression of the mind. That's what I like the most [about it]."
Before putting on an impressive performance which made the clear, Ha Rang explained, "I wrote the lyrics myself. I wrote it with the hopes that my mom and dad will understand me not wanting to go to pre-school everyday."
Yoon Mi Rae had confidently stated, "I think he will be a part of our team. Because he did hip hop, I think he'll be a comrade in hip hop," showing a keen interest in Ha Rang. However, Ha Rang, in an unexpected turn of events, ended up choosing the Yoo Yun Suk and Yoon Il Sang team, saying, "I was going to select Tiger JK at first but Yoo Yun Suk's team seemed better so I chose him instead. I just changed my mind. I'm sorry."
Tiger JK replied, "I was flustered. I think it was too easy. I just got dissed by a really young cat. I don't think I'll be able to recover enough to work on my ninth album," brining laughter with his good-natured humor.
