On the February 19 episode of KBS 2TV‘s “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook,” WINNER appears as guests and perform songs off of their new mini album “EXIT : E.”

During the subsequent interview with MC Yoo Hee Yeol, WINNER shares about how they’ve been doing and what they’ve been up to since their debut.

Member Kang Seungyoon especially piques viewer’s interest with a story about a rough exchange with his boss, YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk.

He reveals that Yang Hyun Suk has given him very harsh feedback, telling him, “Don’t write songs anymore. Just sing.”

Kang Seungyoon shares how a few wise words from label sunbae G-Dragon encouraged him to keep writing songs nonetheless. “G-Dragon told me, ‘Yang Hyun Suk is being harsh but don’t get hurt. As long as you keep doing what you’ve got to do, [Yang Hyun Suk] will acknowledge [your work] eventually,” Kang Seungyoon shares.

He continues, “And in fact, when G-Dragon listened to subpar songs I had written for the album, he would give me feedback in an extremely gentle way.”

Sounds like G-Dragon is a great sunbae!
