The singer wrote, "In the beginning, I was really sorry about being on the same team because it felt like Ji Min was giving up her 'victor' privilege. I think she didn't [want to be a part of 15&] because it was like I was butting in. Truthfully, there was discord over our work and areas where we clashed, but now that I think about it, thanks to Ji Min's bright personality, we became a lot more harmonious."

Baek Ye Rin continued, "Ji Min probably knows this but due to my extremely introverted and sometimes indifferent nature, she would always talk more and go out of her way to do things [for me] first, so I feel like I've become better and learned a lot from her. There were probably times she wanted to pursue her own musical style when we were promoting as a group so I'm thankful that she was always so considerate."
*좋은 마음으로 쓴 글인데, 그냥 '불화 인정' 이라는 말이 들리는 건 참 속상하네요 :) . 처음에는 같이 팀을 하는 것에 대하여, 지민이가 갖고 있던 '경연 우승'이란 특권을 지민이가 포기해준 느낌이여서 많이 미안했고 또, 괜히 내가 끼는 것 같은 느낌에 하기 싫기도 했었던 것 같아요. 솔직하게 말하자면! 서로 일에 대한 갈등도 있었고 서로 맞지않는 부분도 있었는데, 지금 생각하면 늘 남의 웃음을 더 중요시해주는 지민이 성격 덕에 서로 많이 융화된 것 같아요. 지민이도 알겠지만, 많이 내성적이고 가끔은 까칠한 저 때문에 늘 말도 더 많이 해주고, 늘 나서서 먼저 해줬던 지민이 덕에 저도 많이 나아지고 배운 점도 많은 것 같아요. 헤헤 같이 하는 순간에도 늘 본인 하고싶은 음악이 있었을 텐데 늘 배려해 줬던 것들, 고맙습니다.*
