The live house was a fun experience with Mr. Morishige commenting that in his experience people who are as handsome as Kim Hyun-Joong are usually full of pride but Kim Hyun-Joong is not. He also expressed jealousy seeing so many female fans of Kim Hyun-Joong.
Kim Hyun-Joong also expressed interest in performing at smaller venues as a result of this Live House.
