In case we couldn’t tell already, he also revealed his reaction to Tablo using Stray Kids’ song in his video. He then talked a little bit about how much he loves and respects Epik High, particularly Tablo.
I couldn’t believe it. I’m also a really big fan of Tablo sunbaenim and for them to, you know, know we exist… It’s just a different feeling ’cause I’ve been a big fan of Epik High ever since… before I came to Korea, ever since I was in Australia. It’s a different story. This is different.
