With the [INSIDE] concert being one of the first official activities for BTOB to carry out as a four-membered group since the controversy, the members appeared emotional at times. Throughout the show, Lee Changsub held up seven fingers, signaling “OT7″…

… while Seo Eunkwang claimed in a teary-eyed speech that “BTOB is forever“.

I won’t say too much… but yes. I believe BTOB is forever.

— Seo Eunkwang

At one point, Lee Changsub asks, “Are you watching?” — which BTOB fans assume to be addressed to all three members missing from the stage.

I wonder who he’s asking…

The gesture for “OT7” continued even after the show. Celebrating the successful night, the members gathered for a group picture. Both Lee Changsub and Peniel can be seen holding seven fingers up:

“Good work, everyone.”

Following the show, Lee Changsub took to his personal Instagram account to share his final thoughts.

Melodies who watched the concert today, thank you. I hope you all have a good evening. Also, I hope you guys are happy. I have always loved you, I do now, and I always will. We will be together forever.

— Lee Changsub

And with Lee Changsub “choosing to show what he believes“, BTOB’s OT7-fans are praising the brotherhood, unshaken.
