BewhY first made his appearance on television on Show Me The Money 4, but didn’t go any further from the third round. In the third round, he had to have a rap battle with fellow rapper Microdot. Even though they were battling it out, they had perfect teamwork and their performance received a lot of praise from the producers. The judges also felt that rather than a competition, it seemed like they had watched a real performance. It was a shame, but BewhY couldn’t proceed to the next round because the producers chose Microdot to go to the next round, instead. Here is the video of his performance with Microdot:

The next year, he returned to the show and tried againThis time, he made it further than in the previous season, where he was eliminated in the third round. After passing the third round, he was able to join Team AOMG, with Simon Dominic and Gray as the producers, together with G2, One, and DayDay.

In the next round, the group members had to compete among themselves in order to eliminate one person from the team and advance to the next round. In this round, the one who was eliminated from Team AOMG is DayDay. In the sixth round, we could see that the participants were having a Team Diss Battle. In that round, BewhY faced his old friend, C Jamm, and won, but he was the only one on his team to win his battle, so Team AOMG ended up losing.

Since his team is losing, the producers had to choose one rapper to perform in the live show, while the remaining members had to go through mic-selection prior to the live show to perform on the live stage. For this round, BewhY was chosen as the one to perform in the live show and had to face Boi B from Team Gill & Madclown. He performed a song titled Forever, and won, making him able to proceed to the next round. Here is the video of his performance on the live stage:

At the semifinal, the participants had a solo performance with a special guest while facing another contestant. BewhY was faced with Reddy from Team YG. He performed the song Day Day, together with Jay Park as the featured artist, and won the round. Here is the video of his performance at the semifinals:

In the final round, the remaining three contestants were BewhY, Superbee, and C Jamm. The round itself was divided into two parts. In the first part, they had a live performance with their producer. The order for their performances was decided by a vote from the live audience and TV audience. The contestant with the least amount of money was unable to move to the second part of the round. In the second part of the round, the contestants would have either a solo performance or one with a special guest. Finally, the contestant who had the most amount of money at the end would win the program.

During the first part, BewhY performed a song titled XamBaqJa, together with Simon Dominic. In this round, he earned the most money, which was a total of ₩5,700,000. C Jamm came after him, with ₩2,400,000 for second place. Following the results, Superbee wasn’t able to advance to the second part and BewhY had to battle C Jamm again. Here is the video of his performance in the first part of the final round:

For the second part, BewhY performed a song called Fake pt.2, alone, while C Jamm performed a song called Let It Be, with Crush as the featuring artist. In the end, BewhY earned ₩10,750,000, while C Jamm earned ₩7,525,000. BewhY was the winner of Show Me The Money 5. Here is the video of his performance in the second part of the final round:
