The judges praised him for his performance and all agree that he managed to convey the song’s message. However, Ha Hui Dong points out that waacking (a form of dance that involves movement of the arms over and behind the shoulders) did not suit the song and J-Black mentions he needed proper training to be able to execute well. His performance scores an average score of 91.

Team Gikwang’s Moon Seung Shik

During the team’s rehearsal, Gikwang worries about Moon Seung Shik as he freestyled to Hangzoo’s “Red Sun”. He missed some beats so Gikwang advises him to relax, contain his energy and as much as possible rehearse the moves. However, on the dry rehearsal, the coach changes his mind and tells Seung Shik to just do his thing.

Moon Seung Shik starts krumping to the beat and his moves electrified the crowd. But the real scene-stealer is his perfect execution of his shoe trick. He recalls that his attempts to do shoe tricks on the first episode were total failures, so he is proud that he did it this time.

The judges are also impressed. They praise his energy with Honey J commenting “the balance between his inner and outer energy is perfect”. He manages to secure 94 points, the highest among the performers.

Team Lia Kim’s Kim Ye Ri

Kim Ye Ri impresses his teammates and Coach Lia Kim during the interim evaluation. With her moving interpretation of Lee Hi’s “Breathe”, Lia Kim wonders why she is in deep pain at such a young age.

She tells her coach that due to her hearing impairment, she finds it hard to communicate. Thus she became an outcast. Even if she is with friends, most of time she kept to herself. Thinking about her struggles to socialize is the basis of her painful emotions.
