Quotes
(in continuation of Jaehyo, P.O, and Taeil) “I feel like it’s been a while since we’ve been able to eat meat. We really want to eat it.”
(When asked about his exposed arms) “It’s not to show off, but our stylist noona said that at least one of us had to expose something since we’re all covered up… So I was the sacrifice”.
(When asked “did you ever want a cool name” from a discussion about their stage names) “I actually did, but my name was the prettiest”.
(when asked why he likes Bruno Mars and Avant) “[…] if you watch their concert videos, you’ll seriously die”.
