In their interview, the two musicians explained why they chose to go on 'SMTM5' in the end. GRAY stated, "I never liked the show. I was hesitant because Jay Park, LOCO, and Tablo all told me that it's hard, and you become mentally exhausted during the show. But I changed my mind because I could at least let people know what I do for a living. If more people know who I am, I can receive love from more of them. And my parents like seeing me on tv (laughter). [Simon D] didn't want to do it but I convinced him. I thought it would be good for hyung and the label." 

Simon D also relayed, "People cursed me because it ended up being that I didn't keep my word [about not going on 'SMTM']. I turned it down every time it came to me because I never liked the show. But I did it for our AOMG team. Realistically, it'll bring up the label's profit. I've lived a closed-off life, not leaving the house by telling people I was working on an album and caring only about writing lyrics. Jay Park and I are co-heads of AOMG, and he motivated me by showing me how hard he was working. In my 20s, I lived busily, performing with Supreme Team and going on variety programs, but these days I'm more selective of what I want to do. I thought it was time for me to go back to my 20s, when I lived with motivation. It does feel like I'm living with more motivation for the first time in a while (laughter)."

I love how AOMG crew always keeps it real, they just don't care what ppl thinks, the whole reason why JayPark made AOMG is so that he cud say and do what he wants

Thats one of blunt yet realistic response..I, personally, like these kind of response because it show the real situation, not just for 'image' or something...but of course not everyone comfortable with these kind of responds..
