Yang Hyun Suk said "I'm usually attracted by contestants' singing and dancing ability, but sometimes, I'm drawn by their charms," while Park Jin Young stated, "Singers can be divided into two classes. Those are 'artist' and 'star'. Brody will be a star."

Brody's young age was a big plus, but her indescribable charm had a decisive effect on her getting through audition. Yeah, you need to be attractive in your own unique way to be a Kpop star. All the kpop stars have their own power to raise fans' pulse rate.

 

Constant Efforts and Solid Basic Skills

Sing with All Sincerity
Mixed duo Almeng received a lot of attetion from people with its outstanding performing ability. However, they faced a serious crisis at a battle audition stage because of the pain in female member Choi Rin's throat.  As she sings 2NE1's 'Ugly', she had difficulty in singing high-pitched tones. Actually, the performance was below expectations.
 
However, it was well received by the judges. Yang Hyun Suk said "I was amazed to see the lyrics. I was drawn to your sincerity," and Yoo Hee Yeol stated, "It was so beatutiful. It was the best performance you've ever shown."
