Seungkwan also added, "The sunbaenims cheer us on a lot. They tell us after seeing our stage, 'You're full of energy. We hope you will continue to be like this,' and we are thankful for the advice." S.Coups replied, "Because so many sunbaenims give us great words of advice, it is difficult to name specific ones.
