Prior to their journey to Sumatra, the idol showed confidence, saying, "I don't think we will have to worry about food in the jungle because I'm there."
He then explained why he fell in love with fishing, and said, "There's a moment of thrill when the fish bites and I reel it up. I feel like I can connect with fishes. I didn't do anything but the fishes crowd below me. They don't ask for food. They just linger around. I think I have a special vibe."
