In the last season of the show, Taewoon auditioned but failed to make it far in the competition. The rapper has returned this year, saying that the reason he decided to try again was for his brother Zico.
Taewoon said, "It hurt my feelings because I felt like I was shaming my brother's name." Fortunately, Taewoon received an impressive all-pass in the second round of the preliminary auditions. To this, he said, "I've received an all-pass. I feel like crying. I am going to tell my family that I did well, since I got an all-pass. I will continue to work harder."
