During the episode, the contestants performed with their respective groups in front of Park Jinyoung, Momo, and Sana.
Momo and Sana gave constructive yet encouraging comments after each performance, and they even hugged and comforted the contestants who were crying.
Having also undergone a survival program themselves and being Japanese members of TWICE, they best understand how the contestants are feeling, and it reflects in their actions!
