Leader Qri was the first to appear on camera. She made a cute self-introduction and blew a kiss but could not find a way out, sending her bandmates into fits of laughter.

With their debut song playing in the background, the four members of the girl group happily lit the candles on a cake before singing “Happy Birthday.”

The quartet was trying to adjust the camera when they realized that the number of hearts sent by fans for the live show had surpassed 600 million.

“How many are there? Huh? Six-hundred million?” they asked each other.

“Ten years have passed so fast,” said Qri, with everyone agreeing that they had not actually felt it yet.

“I have finished a photo shoot for Hang Ten and will go home and eat dinner,” he said, asking fans if they were headed home as well.

“Others have left already to take a rest, as we have a plan for tomorrow,” the leader of the band said.

The singer told fans that he tries to eat as much Korean food as possible these days, as he has come to understand why they say cooked rice is a source of energy. JR also said he makes an effort to eat breakfast because he seems to have gained an appetite.

“I eat as often as four times a day!” he said, smiling.

The performer also clarified that he had wanted to spell out “love” for his fans during the band’s concert in Hong Kong last week but somehow the “v” ended up looking like an “o.”

“I don’t know why but the more we prepare the more nervous I get,” said JB of their ongoing tour.

“The scale of the concerts is getting bigger, and we wonder if we can meet expectations,” chimed in Youngjae.

Youngjae also prodded the leader to tell fans about his recent solo single “Ride.” “I imagined riding a bike along a seaside road, someone in charge,” said JB, underlining that the road should be near the ocean.

“For unit activities, I haven’t had a chance to dance, but finally I got to this time,” said JB.

As for his own solo single, Youngjae told fans he came up with the song in December 2017.

“We probably were due on Jeju Island, and it was around 4 a.m. when I fell in love with it,” recalled the main vocalist of GOT7.
