They even said, "Of course, it's also very outstanding to be at number two, but we really didn't think that we will get number one, we heard the news when we were taking jacket photography for a single and were too happy to go along with the predetermined concept for the shoot, we were very happy. if you see the photos carefully you can see our delight."

Questions and answers:

-Heard that you met the five-man group Backstreet Boys, what was the content of the show?
"We met Backstreet Boys on the program "Music Fair", they asked us how long do we intend to stay together as a group, so we said that we would like to continue to stay together. They are also working hard as a group and are very happy to meet Asian groups, and complimented us saying our voices are good."
-Happenings upon going to France for photoshoot
"We never thought that people would recognize us there, but there were 30-40 fans welcoming us at the airport and made us rather shocked, furthermore there were some afro-americans holding placards and cheering, which shocked us. After the 5-day shoot there were close to 100 fans at the airport, the staff at the airport have also begun to notice us and take an interest. The students at the school where we shot at have also heard songs from our album, they liked "Hey Girl" and "O Jung Ban Hap".
-How is U-Know Yunho's back injury
"The injury came from the waist, the lumubar vetebrate. The management did not allow Yunho to go on stage at first, but because we haven't done activities in Korea for a long time, we were afraid that the fans might be disappointed
if they don't see us together. So we have continued to perform this three days despite the ache and pain."

There will also be publicity activities with Koda Kumi. Now we don't need a translator in Japan and are able to communicate, and many Japanese know us, so we haven't been going out too often."
