According to Byun Jin-seop, ‘You Need Our Love’ was actually a wholesome song. Byun Jin-seop said, “I made this song because I didn’t want other people’s songs to be included in my album,” and honestly told the story behind the creation of the song.

Byun Jin-seop has the achievement of marking the beginning of the ballad boom in Korea and leaving a mark in the history of Korean music. He recorded more than 1.8 million copies of his first album, becoming Korea's first million-seller, and won the 'Golden Disc' Rookie of the Year award with his first album. He is the first singer to win the and grand prize awards at the same time.

Byun Jin-seop attracted attention by revealing the story of how the immortal song 'Hope' almost went to Lee Moon-se. 'Hope' is a song written and composed by Noh Young-sim, who was a student at the time, and the suggestion was made to Byun Jin-seop, who was about to release his second album after the success of his first album. Byun Jin-seop drew attention by saying that he kept it and put it on his next album because he was about to release his 2nd album, but he was surprised by Noh Young-sim's boldness and decided to include it in his 2nd album. In addition, when a photo of his resemblance to Noh Young-shim was revealed, Byun Jin-seop also admitted, “I think we look alike,” causing laughter.

Byun Jin-seop aroused curiosity by adding, “Kim Min-jong also debuted as a supporting actor in this movie.”
