―― In the corner when we heard the fan's wishes, the card that rowoon picked was a request for dawon. Are you surprised that you would do that yourself?

Rowoon : .... yes (laughs) Because I had expected the question would be something like "please give me heart". I was so puzzled by the content that I suddenly imitated Bruce Lee (laughs)

SF9 : We like him!~

Dawon : He is a cool man ! Because I like him, the members slowly attracted by Bruce Lee's charms (laughs)

"We realized that japanese fans were waiting for us"


―― It seems like you also held a high touch event after the showcase

Juho : FANTASYs were really beautiful..

Dawon : Hands and hands in high touch! I feel like I was able to sympathize with them when we were doing the high touch.

―― How did you feel when you know that the japanese debut will be held on june 7?

Rowoon : When all the members were together, we were told "We decided the japanese debut". At that moment, I was so surprised that my heart would be popping out and at the same time it exploded with joy. As the expectation grew, we felt the pressured to have the stage for ourselves but we were excited as well. 

Taeyang : We've been on the stage as the opening performance of our senior concert from our company, but I think it's thanks to all the fans who cheered for us that we can have a performance for ourselves. 

Hwiyoung : I didn't know that we could debut so quickly.. I'm so grateful that I was able to work harder..
