The press conference for 'Show Me the Money 5 ('SMTM 5')'s winning team was held on July 19 at Seoul Gangnam's Shinsa-dong.  

During the press conference, BewhY confessed that he was a huge fan of Big Bang, revealing, "In middle school, I heard Big Bang's music for the first time and liked it so much that I took an interest in them and even copied the way G-Dragon named himself.

The rapper explained, "My birth name is Lee Byung Yoon, and I used my name's initials to form [my stage name]. But afterwards, because I thought that I may be perceived lightly, I assigned meaning to it. C Jamm helped me come up with [the stage name]."

    Even if he wins 'SMTM', BeWhy's composition skills are still severely lacking. I think he needs to pick a clear style for himself and go through with it
