I told them to not make me the leader”. The members were all surprised as they also knew it for the first time.
Another Japanese member Kazuha revealed the thing that amazed her when she first came to Korea, saying “The delivery service is so fast”, adding “I became an adult on my last birthday. Until then, as a foreigner, I couldn’t have a phone number. I received many birthday gifts, but being able to have a mobile phone number was the best one. That day, I signed up for delivery apps and am using them well.”
Sakura added, “I became impatient after coming to Korea. Even when I get on an elevator, I keep pressing the close button. In Japan, we press it only once.” Huh Yun Jin commented, “The button in HYBE elevator has completely fallen off”, drawing laughter.
Kazuha then talked about why she quit ballet and became a K-pop idol.
