The MV teaser you released previously was very mysterious and grandeur. Please tell us about how the filming of it went.
Yejun: There’s a lot of special CG in it. It was hard trying to act in an environment without all the special effects (laugh).
Kan: It was fun filming at Aokigahara near Mt. Fuji.
Jinon: I almost fell asleep filming the scene where I was laying down.
Daegun: My scenes required lots of special effects so it was hard to film them.
Raehyun: It was pretty scary being in the middle of a forest. So my acting came out a bit awkward.
