On the 23rd of May 2018, Go Won and Yves appeared in LOOΠΔ Kick #22. While Yves looked uninterested, Go Won danced to Hungarian music in a restaurant.

At the Up&Line event, a short, mysterious video clip of Go Won with SeeSaw as background music was played. This video leads to the latter video clip with Go Won.
