g.o.d proved to be as popular as ever with pre-release track "The Lone Duckling" (or "The Ugly Duckling") despite the twelve year gap since they last released a song as a whole group.
The song was released on May 8 and within two hours, it achieved an all-kill on ten music charts. It ranked first on the real-time charts of nine sites just one hour after the song's release: MelOn, Mnet, Bugs, Soribada, Genie, Olleh, Naver, Cyworld, and monkey3. Then another hour later, it topped Daum's list as well, achieving an all-kill on ten charts within a total of two hours!
To thank everyone for the support and love, member Park Joon Hyung uploaded a handwritten letter of thanks onto his Instagram:
"To all of you in the country and overseas, I am so grateful and I thank you. All of you are so cool and brag worthy for doing this with us out of shared good feelings and one meaning. I don't know how much strength we'll provide, but I hope we would help the victims of the Sewol ferry at least a little.
Also, if the five brothers of g.o.d and the lone ducklings could do it, all of you can, too. Chin up! I love you. God BLESS!"
