All the members are nervous and excited."

When asked about their individual talents, leader Park Gyuri answered "My mom used to dub for Japanese Manhwas, so I got her talent of voice impersionations", and went on to show her cute talent. Maknae Kang Jiyoung said "My strongest trait is that I'm the youngest." Meanwhile Jung Nicole stated that "Its dance and cooking. I really like to cook."

Han Seungyeon went on to say that "I'm not young anymore, but my talent is looking younger than my real age", while member Goo Hara said that "My free-spirited nature is my strong point."
