When Insoo’s performance ended, Woo Hyunyoung praised, “He did classical ballet. Actually, the floor now doesn’t have cushion, and it’s bad for ballet dancers. But Insoo performed jumps and fouettes. He showed a lot of techniques that can only be seen at concourses or ballet competitions.”

The MCs then asked Insoo, “How long have you danced ballet?” to which he answered, “I did ballet for 7 years, but it’s been 4 years since I stopped. I used to teach ballet to rhythm gymnast Son Yeonjae.”

Adding on, the MCs commented, “Indeed, you can feel a difference from his skills. He doesn’t feel like an amateur at all.”
