On the April 23rd broadcast of MBCs Come to Play, Noel revealed many hidden stories behind their debut.
Noels Chun Woo Sung confessed, Compared to the amount invested into our debut, we did not do as well. Following this statement, fellow member Nah Sung Ho stated, We received a 10 billion Won investment (~$8.7 million USD) for our debut. At one point during our music career, we drove around in a specially designed car worth 500 million Won (~ $438,127 USD) containing music equipment inside.
Noel further revealed, Although its been ten years since our debut, we werent active for five years. We also only lived together in a dorm for a total of one year and because our debut album didnt do so well, our company at the time kicked us out of our dormitories.
Noels Kang Kyun Sung stated, Because we went through these hardships, we became a stronger and more sincere group.
