Hongki once said the band would had disbanded after Wonbin's departure if it weren't for Seunghyun, and that he really saved them.
- Seunghyun debuted with over 2000 antis simply for replacing Wonbin. Thanks to his hard work, improving talent (already impressive to begin with) and very likeable personality he's now accepted and greatly loved by the fandom.
- Fans were accepting but wary of him when he debuted in "Bad Woman" era. Once "I Hope" era arrived everyone was smitten and he was a hit on variety shows for being hilarious and adorkable.
- Seunghyun finally coming to terms that he is indeed an FT Island member and not an outsider who joined late.
(paraphrased) "Originally, this position was actually for Wonbin. For about 2 years, I thought, "Since I'm in Wonbin's position, I should do my best for him." Now my mind has changed. Now I think the position is originally for me."
