“Rainbow” was written by Mark, Jeno, Jaemin, and Jisung, and they shared their experience working together on the song! Jisung revealed that it was an “easy” experience, because of how close they are!

This was an easy song to work on because we only had to think how we usually are when writing it. A lot of good ideas came out in the process and I’m satisfied.

Jeno also shared his thoughts regarding the songwriting process for “Rainbow”!

Us four didn’t discuss with one another about the lyrics we were writing, but the completed version flowed so well, which was amazing.

—Jeno

“Be There For You” is a ballad sang by the vocal-line; Haechan, Chenle, and Renjun, and talks about treasuring the special bond and dynamic they share as friends!

About their friendship, Mark also shared what their close bond means to each of them!

The fact that all seven of us could take part in this album is precious. Our biggest ambition was to not waste time and focus on the days we are together, and so far we’ve done well.

Our priority is keeping this pace.

—Mark
