Although there was no prior notice, when the five members appeared, people flooded the roads. Shibuya district sent out police officers to the scene, causing a commotion.

When the five members, Gyuri (22), Seung Yeon (22), Hara (19), Nicole (18) and Jiyoung (16) appeared, the crowd surged towards the direction of the stage, and police officers have to support the wave of people with safety barriers. Initially, the event was scheduled for not only a live performance but a talk as well, and this would last for 30 minutes.
