During the showcase, the artist spoke about her album but also how each song was motivated to be made. As this is her comeback after four long years, questions flooded in. One fan asked which junior group she has her eyes on, to which she replied, "MAMAMOO has a lot of talent on multiple levels - I think there are things people are born with and I think they have it. I thought they were going to succeed when they first caught my attention and they proved me right."

She also stated that she will only promote her album on music shows for a week, "I asked IU and she told me she was able to only promote her music for two weeks so I thought I should just do it for one week. A popular artist like IU only gets to promote for a couple weeks, if I drag my promotion longer than I need to I might feel needy. But also, being away from home from so long feels wrong as well."

A fan asked how long she would like to be active/promote until and what kind of music she wants to make in the future. She responded, "Until my hair becomes white. I'd like to sing songs where people ask 'Can she say that?' or 'Is she allowed to sing songs like that?'"

She ended with how the press has changed over the years, "In the past, many journalists asked me really tough and piercing questions but this time around, there were a lot of warm and music-related questions so I'm really grateful for that. However, if there are news articles that are provocative and mean, I'm trying not to hate them. As there are so many news sources and writers, I'm aware the news competition is difficult which causes them to write in a way to receive strong reactions. I'm also trying to live the best I can amongst many so if you can continue to support me, that would be great.

The responses and answers she provided through her showcase truly represented the level of professionalism she has developed over the years to reach the veteran status.
