“This society is a society with a lot of competition.
We’ve been through competition since we auditioned and constantly
competed with each other during our trainee days. Also, we couldn’t help
but compete with other teams after debuting as well. As it gets better
and better, there’s still larger competitions waiting for you, so don’t become tired from them and I hope you can be people who enjoy it.” — Kim Sunggyu

Kim Sung Kyu has been someone that, to a certain level, I can relate. To me, personally, he is a symbol; a manifestation of an idea. So, on his birthday I would like to show a form of support by making this piece. 생일축하합니다 김성규 씨. 항상 고맙고 사랑해요.
