Epik Highrevealed the funny episode behind their creation of the hit song "Umbrella" and also reunited with Younha to perform the song on KBS 2TV's 'Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook'!

Tablo revealed how he came up with "Umbrella", explaining, "The song 'Umbrella' was made at DJ Tukutz' house while I was eating jokbal (pig's trotters). The melody and lyrics for the first verse, 'Before I even realized the rain gathered around my feet,' suddenly came to my head while I was eating jokbal. So I sang it to DJ Tukutz, who I was eating with at the time [and told him], 'Isn't this melody so delicious?' I mean, 'Isn't this melody good and chewy?' Tukutz liked it as well, and we went straight down to our studio and made the song. Then we waited to ask Younha for a featuring."

When asked why they chose Younha to feature in the song,Tablo shared, "It's a sad song, but I didn't want it to sound too sad. Younha's voice sounds like a nice person who goes through a major hardship for the first time."

Check out their performance of "Umbrella" (starts at the 8:21 mark)!
