During the livestream, the members revealed they are hard at work to make sure they put on a great show for their fans.

We decided to have a surprise livestream while practicing for the concert. We will be revealing our new song during the show. We are really working hard for you guys. It’s a little hard because we are learning various new choreographies since it’s our first concert. Also, we have a big event for you guys, so make sure you guys come well-rested.

Winter, who was reading fans’ comments, then suddenly commented on the concerts’ ticket prices and the fact that it costs money for fans to watch the concert online.

What? Do they have to pay to watch online? It’s also expensive (to watch) online. It costs [/krw]60000[/krw] (to watch online).

Then other members chimed in, stating that they didn’t agree with the prices.

Even I am disappointed (for you guys).
