Member Kang Joon continued, “We’ve performed on a guerrilla stage, but I feel very nervous because it is our first official stage. This is the place where all of our hard work will be paid off, so I’m so looking forward to it.”

He is kind and innocent.” 2AM’s Jo Kwon was described as, “A close colleague of mine who sweeps across all the talent shows during our school gatherings. B2ST’s Yoon Du Jun was recommended as the “Physical education teacher.” In addition, C.N Blue’s Jung Yong Hwa was described as the “Handsome looking oppa from church.”
Netizens commented: “It all seems plausible…” “It’s funny how I have no trouble imagining them with these jobs.” “This is hilarious.”
