For those unaware, the show releases episodes based on the original ideas of each member, and the members whose idea is being shot gets the chance to host the episode.

Member Jeonghan shared how he felt each member did during the 2020 season of GOING SEVENTEEN.

I feel that all of the members did a good job of preparing the content they wanted to try and showed it to Carats in GOING SEVENTEEN 2020. In 2021, we will continue to prepare more fun content.

The interviewer mentioned that the group gave their audience different experiences every episode based on which member was hosting and wanted to know if the group was satisfied with them:

DK shared his opinions on the episode he hosted.

‘MYSTERY MYSTERY.’ First off, I am very sorry. If I get the chance to be the host again, I believe I can do a better job, but I don’t know if the producer will give me the another chance (laughs). There was a little bit of pressure because ‘MYSTERY MYSTERY’ started off ‘GOING SEVENTEEN 2020,’ however, it was a very nice memory for me. Next time, I think it would also be fun to have a bigger-scale ‘MYSTERY MYSTERY,’ although I’m not sure if I’ll be given the opportunity again (laugh). ‘MYSTERY MYSTERY’ was very fun.

The group’s maknae (youngest member), Dino, also gave his thoughts about GOING SEVENTEEN.

The sense of the crew of ‘GOING SEVENTEEN 2020’ was very cool. It was great to materialize the idea, and above all, it seems that our idea was reflected and participated in more fun. So, it seems that many people sympathized and laughed, and it has become an unforgettable memory for us.

The interviewer then asked whether any of the members were impressed by another member’s skills for variety TV. Hoshi chose DK as the member who he thought did great in the show.

I’m jealous and fascinated by his instinctive variety skills and bright energy. I want to be funny too.

Joshua chose Jun‘s performance in one episode as a moment that he felt was impressive.

In ‘MOUSEBUSTERS,’ I think it was amazing how Jun was able to lie about his ability. I didn’t expect it, and I’m shocked that I believed it.
