Producer, Park Sung Hoon revealed the sudden change in a press conference today, saying, "I thought there needs to be a change as third season unfolded. We appointed Yoo Hee Yeol as a new judge and we think that he could discover a different kind of jewel with a different perspective. However, the concept of the program has not changed at all."

Yoo Hee Yeol replied, "Our agency has been a little lacking in terms of finding new talents. That is why I think this show will help. I already had a meeting with the director. To be honest, I was planning to turn down the offer but I reconsidered it after reading one phrase." That phrase turned out to be, "fair competition", and he joined the panel of judges in the hopes of upholding a fair competition to find the next superstar.

Then he also talked about the variances between major agencies like YG and JYP Entertainments, and his company Antenna Music. "Antenna Music never discusses anything when making music. You're completely free to do what you want.There's neither cafeteria nor a dance practice room, and it's a small office located in a basement like place. In comparison to major companies, you can think of our company like a local bakery. Although those who come out from this audition program will probably learn a lot when they go to either of the two big companies, if they come to our company, they'll probably be able to develop a strong will to survive."
