Many people think Hwanhee is the main vocalist [of Fly to the Sky] and I am the second vocalist or rapper. I won’t mention his name, but one producer once said to Hwanhee after a performance, “You’re truly a great singer”, when he only said, “Good job”, to me. So I wanted to prove that I could do it too.
