Through their conversation, Dong Yeob noticed that Suga sincerely appreciated the art of comedy.

Suga then said, “I love stand-up comedy. I watch stand-up from overseas. You don’t make things uncomfortable, even if you talk about uncomfortable topics. I thought you’re very profound.” He appreciated how comedians like Dong Yeob could explore topics considered taboo in South Korea in a light but also in-depth way.

Caught off guard, Dong Yeob could only laugh at the high praise of Suga. He then explained that he could only navigate sensitive topics because he also made many mistakes throughout his long career.
