ASTRO's oldest member MJ didn't want to be left out, as he remarked, "I had one that I used from time to time too. Sebastian... My English teacher, Mister Kim, was it? Gave it to me," causing laughter. Finally, Rocky added on, "My English name was Philip." However, Rocky stressed that he was not able to reveal what English tutoring school he learned from, causing even more laughter!
