If we have the chance, we might come out with some interesting short play like”Attack on the Pin-Up Boys”. To come out this kind of interesting short play, we are practicing a lot for our acting skill. If there is any director who is interested, we could present ourselves as a well prepared actor. We are well prepared. Last year, each of our members has taken part in drama/film shooting. If eight of us have the chance to shoot together in a drama, it would be nice, as a memento or something for the fans to see.
