“We can’t see what they say in their interview behind the stage. All we can see is how they dance on stage.

During the first episode, she had a dance battle with Zsun from Coca N Butter. But before Yell’s turn to dance, one of the other dancers got hurt, so they decided to take a break between shootings.
“And before I resumed, the air was heavy because of the injury and the long break. But luckily for me, I’m a fighter by nature. So I put all my effort into the dance, even stronger than usual. So we ended the battle in a good mood and shook hands. But it didn’t show on the edited video,” Yell said.
Because the edited version did not show them shaking hands, Yell was criticized for her alleged attitude, with many accusing her of being disrespectful to people older than her.
