Yang Hong Seok Joins "MIX & MATCH" with B.I Having a Hard Time

Sensitive Artist, Sept. 26, 2014, 12:19 p.m.


For the third installment of Mnet's rap survival program, "MIX & MATCH", the ninth YG trainee Yang Hong Seok joined the ranks and things got shaken up worse as the atmosphere was already tense due to the boys fighting each other for a spot on the upcoming boy group, iKON.

The tension seems to especially get to B.I in the September 25th episode, with him admitting that he was having a very difficult time.  This is to be expected due to the high stakes, but it isn't all work and no play thanks to a few performances at the end of the show, like a cover of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep"!

At a certain point in the show, leader B.I disappears, provoking Yoon Hyung to say, "I wish it were a hidden camera," showing his concern. B.I was seen sitting on a concert bench, trying to organize his thoughts while writing lyrics.

B.I confessed, "I wanted to escape.  I wanted to get out of the world.  This is the first time in my life I had so much to do.  New things keep being created one by one, and that is an overload to me.  I want the end result to be perfect, but I get tired of it during the process. It's hard because it's not easily untangled.  Originally, I wanted to go to Busan, but I didn't know how to get there.  This is the farthest place out of the ones I know."

The new trainee addition, Yang Hong Seok, revealed that he only had experience singing, and that he had never danced before.  During dance practice, even though Yang Hong Seok was unable to follow the rest of the group, B.I didn't make any comments which surprised the newcomer. Yang Hong Seok commented, "I thought B.I would point things out, but he didn't say anything."


In turn, B.I said, "I didn't keep watching him.  Then, I saw him briefly, and it was a mess.  It was just the worst," which may cause the two some conflict in the future.

B.I also said during a practice session, "Did you practice?  Did you not practice by any chance?  Didn't I tell you to practice from 4 to 5 in the morning?  You need to work harder than I do.  I did not get to see you practice."

Yang Hong Seok apologized profusely after B.I approached him with the above statement and replied, "It's true I did not do my best.  I will work hard."
