As a result, pH-1 got a tattoo on his pinky finger as a heartbreaking reminder to himself.

I ended up having a long-distance relationship when I came to Korea. But we ended up breaking up. So I got a tattoo of an ‘X’ out of heartbreak. Since all promises break, it’s a reminder not to make any promises pertaining to human relationships, including love.
