My friends from Japanese rock band One Ok Rock told me, ‘we didn’t know you started as Idols. We heard your music thinking you began as an indie band. Can’t you go down a new path since you can be both an idol and a band?’ That really hit me deeply in my heart. Our homework is to figure out a new way where we can shine both as an idol and artist.
