On June 2, 2020, EJ was introduced as a participant in the CJ ENM and Big Hit Entertainment's then upcoming survival show I-LAND. On the first episode, he performed "Any Song" by Zico, along with Daniel, and was able to enter "I-LAND". However, during the second episode, he was "eliminated" as he received 6 votes and placed in "Ground". As half of the I-LANDER team had to be sent to "Ground" in the third episode, the producers chose 6 people, with EJ being one of them, from "Ground" to be sent to "I-LAND". However, on the sixth episode, he was voted back to "Ground". On the seventh episode, he was unfortunately eliminated from the show and was unable to participate in Part 2.
