On the February 6 airing of tvN's 'Talk Mon', Wendy, Seulgi, Jung Yoo Mi, Kang Ji Seop, and Solbi guested on the show. Seeing Wendy as one of the guests, Jang Do Yeon commented, "I enjoyed the (past 'Knowing Bros') episode because Kang Ho Dong cried at Wendy's words. It was touching."
During Red Velvet's guest appearance on 'Knowing Bros' in 2016, Wendy told Kang Ho Dong, "I just want you to know that you really seem like a good person." The MC surprised viewers by showing tears at Wendy's comment.
Kang Ho Dong explained, "It was because I heard a compliment for the first time years.." DinDin playfull remarked, "Did you cry because a dongsaeng complimented you?" Kang Ho Dong replied, "I've been in the industry for more than 10 years and it was the first time I heard a compliment. Tears started forming."
