I think Ji Hoon will gain a lot of strength and work hard if May walks with Ji Hoon every step of the way. Not many people think of fans as much as Ji Hoon. I hope you have a good time with Ji Hoon for a very, very long time. "
Kim Jae Hwan started his message looking at the crowded audience and commenting, "Ji Hoon, you're really amazing. After our last concert, I paused, so I even felt uncomfortable putting on makeup today. Arriving here and seeing May today, it's a different kind of feeling, and it's cool.
