To the Vega β fans,
I'm so happy, I'm literally prancing around in my bedroom right now!
To be able to sing with the unnies again as Vega β...
No words can say how I feel right now!
I'm so excited, happy, relieved... it's just a mix of positive feelings right now!
I'm going to explode!
I can't wait to see you all again on stage as a member of Vega β!!
Also sadly, I'm not maknae anymore! Does this mean I have become a normal member?
I guess I can't be called Giant Baby anymore? I liked that nickname, though ;; Does that make me weird?
But yes! We have new members! Generation 2 members! So many surprises in one package!
I look forward to the future of Vega β!!!
