The topic of the day was the neighborhood of Mangwon-dong, located in the Mapo-gu district in Seoul. Sungjong began, "Since my trainee days, I lived in Mangwon-dong in the dorms there. From trainees to when we debuted up until about last year, I lived there. I lived there for quite a long time, and back then, it wasn't as developed of an area without as many people living there. [INFINITE] filmed about 4 reality programs in the neighborhood. I think the area became famous after that."
When MC Jun Hyun Moo asked, "You think it was because of yourself [that the area became well-known]?" Sungjong didn't hesitate to reply, "Yes, a bit."
He continued, "Fans in their teens and 20s came to Mangwon-dong for INFINITE, then stuck around to grab meals, etc..." Later on, Sungjong said, "They really need to give us an award over at Mangwon-dong. I'm proud of [this accomplishment]."
We'll just say that Mangwon-dong really did become more developed thanks to INFINITE, Sungjong.
