No need to thank me. I actually thought that you might be feeling pressure because of this interest from the public that came so suddenly. I hope that this will be an opportunity for you to become a great artist who, no matter what jealous people say, is magnanimous and lets it slide… It’s thanks to you that I’ve also learned that if you work hard at something with sincerity, heaven will someday give you an opportunity. Thank you.. I think all of this was possible because it’s a good song. I hope that you won’t waver or be over-excited and will instead calmly observe as you enjoy this time, this chart. Because you were already such a cool person.[thumbs up]
Congratulations on reaching No. 1 on Melon. Let go of all your worries and just completely enjoy this moment. And also, you can just forget it and go back to usual.^^ How you’ve usually done things. I want to be No. 1 on Melon too ([I don’t] even remember when that happened^^).
As of midnight KST on June 19, “Downtown Baby” maintains No. 1 on Melon, Genie, and Bugs.
