The leaders talk about their rise to fame

'Street Woman Fighter’s production director Choi Jeongnam talked about how all dance crews worked with a competitive spirit on each of the missions. He said that he would assume the participants of the show were athletes who played the sport of dancing. Talking about how the show resonated with all viewers, Jeongnam said that the missions were not the only highlight of the show but it was showing viewers the process through which members of each crew prepared for the missions.

Hollybang’s leader Honey J talked how the show's various concepts felt impossible at first leading them to believe they would never become so popular. She said, “It is true that we started while being skeptical that we were not even idols, and these mere dancers like us would have a fandom of their own.” NO:ZE, the leader of WayB, shot to fame after her choreography of ‘Hey Mama’ by David Guetta went viral and multiple K-pop idols participated in the dance challenge that resulted from it.

NO:ZE talked about how nothing is the same for her since she joined the show as a contestant, saying, “A lot of things have changed.”

Aiki, the leader of the dance crew HOOK, mentioned that the reason why ‘Street Woman Fighter’ did so well is that the show revealed the real personalities of each participant without concealing them from fans. It is safe to say that the show was extremely popular in South Korea as the 'Street Woman Fighter On The Stage' live concert for the show's first event in Seoul was sold out in 1 minute.
