Netizens reacted with good responses to his emceeing after the finale:[s]

“Kang Daniel’s reactions align well with the points and rankings, so I was paying attention to him ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I have to hear him cheer in order to enjoy watching.”
“He attacked us with his face a lot today. And he was so funny. Every time he said an adlib, it made me think he does better when he isn’t given a script.”
“He thought he did pretty well emceeing during SWF, and he wasn’t bad today as well ㅋㅋ And it’s hilarious how his reaction = my reaction…. As I watched the stages, if I went ‘oh’, he’s going ‘whoa~~~’ as well ㅋㅋㅋ He really looks like a puppy. And he was pretty today.”
“It’s funny how, since he’s gotten comfortable with the SWF members, he jokes around with them a bit.”
“He was crazy handsome today ㅠ He had so many lines to say too. You really have to acknowledge that he worked hard during this live broadcast.”
“The gif of him throwing his cue cards is so cute ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ His back and forth with the SWF dancers was fun too ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Ah, but the staff were giving him his cue cards in real-time. He really worked hard.”
“I liked how his emceeing isn’t exaggerated. This time as well, he would deliver water to all the teams before the battles. He takes care of others in the background, and his emceeing feels friendly as well, so I’ve grown fond of him. For the next while, he’ll probably come to my mind whenever it’s a Tuesday ㅋㅋㅋ”
“He’s handsome, cute and overflowing with consideration and kindness with how his takes care of the participants. He’s totally just a big and sweet puppy.”

“If there’s a reason I started dancing…!! When I was in 6th grade, I was really into Produce 101 Season 2.

It’s such an honor to get to meet him in person at SGF now after 4 years have passed!!🌸”
