I want to apologize and thank our B2UTYs for waiting. They were the most anxious as different conversations were floating around. I also want to sincerely thank chairman Hong Seung Sung and Cube Entertainment for forming the five of us and bringing us to where we are today. I don’t know what kind of events will happen in the future. But I’m not afraid at all. We [Around Us] will work hard to bring you all joy and happiness. ”
