Compliments from the panelists

Before Won Pil took of his mask, Weki Meki’s Do Yeon who is a part of the panelist had guessed his identity correctly. Confirming that she is a fan of DAY6, Do Yeon said that she likes the band’s songs and have also been to their concert.

Yoo Young Seok complimented Won Pil saying that he is very unique and has his own color. He further says that Won Pil is more like a musician than a singer. Adding to that he also said that Won Pil looks like the handsome version of veteran singer Yoo Hee Yeol.

When he was asked if he is the main vocalist of DAY6, Won Pil answered that there are four vocalists in the band and so the main vocalist varies for every song. He further said that they have always wanted to break the stereotype of an idol group as a band. Which is why, their main focus is towards holding concerts and busking to interact more with the fans.

As a fan of the show, Won Pil has always wanted to appear in The King Of Mask Singer. Earlier, fellow band member Young K too had appeared in the show.

DAY6 is a super-talented band under JYP Entertainment and have been gaining steady popularity worldwide over the last few years. They recently had a comeback with their third full-length album The Book Of Us: Entropy.
