The idol star prepared a special ceremony in the rain instead by sliding down the field. Following the event, her ceremony gained great attention.

During Naver 'V' live on the same day, Dahyun talked about her special ceremony and said, "I heard the baseball players do sliding when games get canceled due to rain. So I said I wanted to try too and they happily allowed me. I appreciate the LG team (for letting me slide)."
