The group’s five members, Kang Seungyoon, Song Mino, Lee Seunghoon, Kim Jinwoo and Nam Taehyun, dressed in casual attire with some wearing masks, first introduced themselves to fans and said hello.

To the roaring applause of his bandmates, Kang Seung-yoon, the leader of the boy band, said, “I’m glad we successfully ended our ‘Winner Exit Tour’ in Seoul.”

“We would like to thank Winner’s fans who came to see us in the concert, and this is certainly not the end, so we can see you guys sometime soon,” said Kang.

Kang and other team members also unveiled their unique team slogan “Good, good, very good” to the fans, characterized by its cheerful tune and simple rhythm. “This is how we do our slogan, so please be aware.”

Heading toward the end of the corridor that appeared to be in front of the VIP room, one member of the band thanked other artist groups and fans who brought them flowers. They seemed surprised and gratified to be presented with all the special flowers, gifts and congratulatory messages, along with rice wreaths from fans.

“Thanks for the rice wreath donations, really. It is for a good cause. With all your help, we can do something meaningful for someone in need,” Kang explained.

The group, scheduled to have a wrap party at a barbecue restaurant, headed for the exit of the stadium only to be surrounded by cheering fans waiting outside the concert hall.

“Thank you guys, thank you for coming. You guys are the best,” each member of the band shouted to the fans.

After a few moments with fans, they told viewers on the V app that they had to go for now, but they would meet with the viewers again next time.

Winner will continue their tour in Gwangju, Daegu and Busan on March 26, April 2 and April 23, respectively.

Rookie group ASTRO from Fantagio Entertainment, enjoyed Sunday the candy party through the Naver V app to celebrate the upcoming “White Day” on March 14, when men give women sweets as a gift. The 6 members of the boy group, sat around on a wood table with all different kinds of lollipops, sweets, chocolates, and jellies, and packed each of them with written letters of appreciation for fans.
