On the May 20 episode of Mnet survival program, “Show Me The Money 5,” the hip hop star hopefuls enter the second round of preliminaries.
One of this week’s contestants is Taewoon, former Speed leader, and older brother of Block B’s Zico. In 2015, he took part in “Show Me The Money 4” but failed to make it into the top 16.
“It seemed like I disgraced my brother’s name, and that made my heart ache,” he confesses while taking part in the second round of preliminaries.
However, he goes on to show off his rapping skills and makes it through to the next round with an “all pass” from the impressed judges. Taewoon is so happy he sheds tears, saying, “Next time I’ll be cooler, Mom, Jiho.” Jiho is Zico’s real name.
We look forward to seeing more of Taewoon’s skills in later episodes!
