Yong Jun Hyung continued, “We worked on the BEAST album while I was filming this drama so I was worried that I might bring down either project but the BEAST members comforted me a lot and if I had to leave for the drama, they would let me record first and let me go.”

B2ST‘s Junhyung revealed his honest opinions on sasaeng fans.

On May 13, he attended the press conference for his upcoming drama, ‘Monstar‘ at the 63 Convention Center in Yeouido. Since his character in the drama has to deal with sasaeng fans, he talked about his own personal experiences. 

He stated, “My experiences as a member of B2ST helped me in acting a lot. In the drama, my character suffers from various rumors and sasaeng fans.

But after that incident, I missed a week of class at the academy because of my overseas schedule and I was mistaken as a trouble making delinquent by my teacher. However, right before this album comeback, I revealed the truth about everything and cleared up all the misunderstanding.

Joe and Changjo also performed “Jealousy” and had a dance performance, where Changjo worked the fans in a frenzy by revealing his abs. 

Teen Top also did a special rendition of Sistar19‘s “Gone Not Around Any Longer.” They wore white button up shirts and did the famous invisible chair dance in a sexy performance that would have made Sistar19 proud. 
At the end of the concert the members of Teen Top thanked their fans and their agency. Niel said, “I want to thank our company’s president. Also, I want to thank Andy. I also want to thank the family at our agency for all their hard work.” 

L. Joe promised, “We will always be grateful to ANGEL (Teen Top’s fan club). Thank you all for coming here today.”

Through this concert Teen Top and their fans became one. The faces and loving messages of the fans that showed on the screen during the songs will be something Teen Top will never forget.
