The host of the show, actor Yeo Jin Goo commented that he chose to participate in the program because he feels he can share great advice with the contestants.

As for the K-Pop Master’s, Tiffany conveyed how she hopes the participants can understand that everyone makes mistakes and to move past them.
I hope you could discern between mistakes and failures. It’s natural to make mistakes as a human being, as a woman, and as an artist. You can grow from it. I hope you will not be afraid of making mistakes.
Sunmi also advised the contest to always reflect on themselves and to stay humble. As someone who will be making others happy through their talents, Sunmi shared it’s important to stay grounded.
In the end, it is essential to be humble and not conceited. You can grow into an amazing person by looking back on yourself. Right now, this may not be a trick to becoming successful, but we’ll be doing things that make people happy for a long time. I hope you will grow up with this kind of mentality.
With K-Pop masters such as Tiffany and Sunmi, surely the contestants will make the right choices and do amazing! The show is set to air on August 6 at 8:20 p.m. KS.
