From Diets To Pressure: TREASURE Looks Back On The Hardships They Faced While Preparing For Their First Concert

They went through a lot 😢

TREASURE held their first offline concertTRACE, from April 9 to 10. They prepared performances of songs from their album THE SECOND STEP: CHAPTER ONE and covers of their senior’s hits.


They had just finished the last day of their concert when they had to shoot the second episode of The Idol Ramyeonators. Here, Junkyu, Hyunsuk, Yoshi, Jihoon, and Yedam looked back on the results of their concert, commending each other for a job well done.

Hyunsuk: The concert went well, good job.

Junkyu: It’s a happy day.

At the same time, they had to face many hardships prior to the event such as going on a diet that ended just that night.

We did our best today. We held back for so long, even the food we ate.

— Yoshi

According to Hyunsuk, they had to limit their food intake since they shot the “JIKJIN” music video at the end of 2021.

We held back since we worked on the music video. That was last year.

— Hyunsuk

They also had to deal with nerves on a new level.

I was like, don’t be nervous [but my voice cracked when I sang ‘JIKJIN’]. I was going nuts.

— Yedam

Jihoon also experienced his fair share of errors that he regretted.

When Yedam’s voice cracked on Saturday, I was like, ‘Yedam, you messed up from the start!’ Then on Sunday [my own voice cracked when I sang, ‘No turning back.‘] So I thought, since I messed up, I’ll dance my best.

— Jihoon

Junkyu chimed in that he also made a mistake, this time while covering BIGBANG‘s song “BANG BANG BANG.” He had copied Mashiho‘s wrong move which created a domino effect where he, Haruto, and Junghwan started off the choreography incorrectly.

We start from the left, but Mashiho started from the right. He’s the teacher so I followed him. When Haruto began, he thought he was wrong.

— Junkyu

TREASURE opened up about how terrible they felt for their fans when things did not go their way.

Junkyu: Whenever I make a mistake, I feel bad for TREASURE MAKERS.

Hyunsuk: I suddenly feel bad for them.

At the same time, they recognized that their fans would not want them to feel that way and that they were still growing as artists. They comforted each other, saying, “It was our first time and we’re still learning.”

Yedam also mentioned, “I’m so happy. We were great on the stage.”

Finally, Hyunsuk put everyone back on track by reminding them that they should be thankful they ended the concert well without any injuries.

The fact that we’re tired and still blaming ourselves means we’re healthy and sound.

— Hyunsuk
