Big Bang′s leader, G-Dagon revealed his thoughts about YG Entertainment′s debut survival program.

On September 2, the Big Bang members appeared in a highlight video shown at the press conference for the new survival program, Mix & Match, held at the Conrad Hotel in Yeouido.

Big Bang′s Seungri said, "I barely made it at the end, and my feelings then were desperation and eagerness."

Taeyang also stated, "I think their feelings are something that no one will understand unless it′s themselves."

G-Dragon also stated, "We [Big Bang] were also part of the survival tactic. Our company really enjoys survivals, and in the end, when the results as artists are good, the memories all become bases. It was a huge help for us."

He added, "When you go into a survival at a young age, you start fiercely competing and get a lot of greed. During that period, I think you′re able to have self-development."
