Mir denied it, and clarified what he meant by saying, "It doesn"t have that kind of intent at all. There are lyrics that say "Don"t go around talking bad about me. I don"t need you," in the song. A lot of people hear this part and mistaken it as a diss towards Lee Joon and Thunder. But these are words that can also be said towards an ex-girlfriend."

Both the former members and the current members have been showing their support for each other, so hopefully the song is not further mistaken as a diss song!

They explained what had changed: "The car got roomier and our preparation time got shorter, which are the advantages. However, the disadvantage is that it feels empty. There were the times and memories we had shared together in the past. We miss those times."

DJ Kim Chang Ryul asked, "Do you contact Lee Joon and Thunder once in a while?" and they replied, "We contact them once in a while," which is always great to hear!

Seung Ho said, "It will translate differently depending on the viewpoint. We want to reveal all the relevant content with straightforwardness, but there were a lot of good memories. I do not want to ruin those. Just think of it as we"re supporting one another," showing that there might be more behind the story, but he would rather maintain a mutually supportive relationship.

G.O added, "I can"t say that the lyrics as a whole were targeting them, but we don"t have a lot of experience in love. So we put in our situation. We unraveled it as a love story." So it does seem the lyrics are in relation to the other two.

"We sing better than those two," he continued bluntly. "So we got more parts. I came to think that now I could finally sing a bit. Of course, though, they dance better than I do," resulting in a taken aback Mir and Seung Ho.

Unsurprisingly, the boys were asked a lot about their former members, including whether they still exchanged words with them. G.O responded with, "We give and receive our comments like "Are you doing well?" "We will support you," and, "A new album is coming out" using telepathy." Which actually just sounds like they haven"t talked much at all.

He continued, "We probably each had a lot of thoughts for a long time. At first, I greatly denied the reality that there had been no choice but to do that, and there could have been a bit of hatred, but we are all now having only good thoughts. Because we were [doing that], we got to release an album."

G.O continued, It was an emotionally draining experience. I escaped the real world and living in a virtual reality, but I am back now. Its a game. If you dont focus on anything significant for a long period of time, you start having bad thoughts. Eventually, you will have to suck it up and do something. I started looking back at my life as I got stuck in that cycle. I think I took love and interest for granted back then. Now I have learnt from my past experiences.

Finally, Mir shared about his hardships, The past six months were difficult for me. I didnt even go out that much. I drove down to the countryside and basically became one with nature.

Regarding his own promotions as a singer, he had previously stated he had no plans for it at the moment. He reiterated, "I want to focus on acting for the time being. This doesn"t mean I won"t be promoting as a singer at all. It"s just that right now, I want to act deeply, so I do not want to think about promotions as a singer.

He also clarified previous reports of him solely focusing on acting for good. What I meant to say was that I wanted to focus on acting for a while, not that I will be quitting singing for good. Im not pleased with my acting yet, so I want to focus on that at the moment. He further added, Later, if Im given a chance [to sing], I will consider it.

On his recent decision to focus on acting, he said, Instead of deciding that I will concentrate on being an actor, it just happened naturally. Ive wanted to act since I was a third year in middle school, and I went to classes to learn how to act, in high school. Ive gotten here naturally.
