During his appearance, DEAN engaged in friendly conversation with MC Yoo Hee Yeol, chatting about a variety of topics. The singer talked briefly about his newfound popularity, musing, "Recently, more people started to recognize me. On my flight to the United States, the person sitting next to me was watching the episode of my last 'Sketchbook' appearance which aired in January."
DEAN, who is active not only as a singer but also as a producer, admitted that though he gets more requests to compose songs, he "focuses more on his activities as a singer."
MC Yoo Hee Yeol commented, "DEAN's music is not easy [to listen to]," and asked about what DEAN thinks about the mass appeal/marketability of his own songs in Korea. DEAN replied, "I don't really know what 'mass appeal' is. I just think that if I do the kind of music that I like, then like-minded people will like it." Yes, more songs please, DEAN!
