He was put on Team B for the Hide-and-Seek Test and traveled with Androssi, Des Lion and Baam. When Androssi attacked Lion, Hong revealed that he had been suspicious of her all along. He asked Lion to distract Androssi, saying he could finish her in one blow. Lion did not accept but accidentally ended up distracting her anyway. When Androssi finished off Lion, Hong said that she should not have let her guard down and Ignited his weapon Narumada. He was surprised when Baam was able to take a hit from Narumada, but let him leave, before teaming up with Lion against Androssi. However, the pair was easily defeated. Hong called Androssi a demon and was then smashed against a wall by her. He passed the Hide and Seek Test and also the Submerged Fish Test which was the final test on the 2nd Floor.
