Jonghwan said, "I think it was a time for us to come closer together, and it allowed us to become brighter. In my case, I've definitely become brighter." Next, Minwoo shared, "During the hiatus, we went traveling together. We had a good relationship in the past too, but now it's a bit different. Surviving together with the name 100% has automatically turned into a goal, due to our long hiatus. I think we got to know each other better and became closer."
