Wilson of MCA Music Philippines: Thank you for that, maybe we could start with the question and answer portion now?
1st question: Who are the bands that you look up to and is there something new that we can expect from Beast?
Beast: We like the band Shinhwa in Korea because they have teamwork, they've been so popular for a long time. We want to be like them.
2nd question: What is your edge over the other K-Pop bands?
Beast: The fact that there are six of us and all have different styles and character, that differentiates us. We've poured a lot of effort in the production of our album and we hope that all that effort will put Beast on a new level.
3rd question: There's this group in the Philippines right now that are calling themselves "BEST", do you feel flattered or somewhat irritated that a group is mimicking your group.
Beast: it's an honor to have a group that mimic us and we would like to meet them when we visit the Philippines soon.

5th question: How have you changed since you started last 2009
