Sunoo: While preparing for this album, executive producer Hitman Bang complimented us on our improvement.

Bang PD co-produced the group’s title track, making his praise even more meaningful.

Sunoo: It was our first time receiving such a big compliment from him, so that also motivated us to work even harder for this comeback.

Showing improvement is exactly what the group set out to do.

‘Future Perfect’ is a song that declares ‘we will take the leap forward, come along with us’ to everyone in our generation. So, we tried many new different things for this album, you know, the rapping and also-performance wise. We worked really hard to show an improved version of ourselves.

“Future Perfect (Pass the MIC)” was challenging, but the group worked hard to pull it off.

The hard work must have paid off, considering the compliment from Bang PD.

Bang Si Hyuk, the producer, suddenly reached out to us one day. He said he saw the video and that we must have worked hard because it was the first time he ever saw so much passion. That’s how much we practiced. For the sake of putting on a good performance.
