The Boyz members also expressed their greatest gratitude to the fans. Sangyeon said, “First of all, if it wasn’t for our The B (fandom name), I don’t think I would receive this award.
“I want to say thank you to The B the most,” said New. “It may not have been enough because it was an album that was prepared in a hurry, but I want to say thank you to The B and the agency for filling it up that much. Didn’t we keep the fans waiting for 10 months? We’ll be THE BOYZ who will come back with a good album as long as we’ve kept you waiting.”
