“We can’t believe it. This is a miracle, all thanks to our BLINKs. We’d like to say thank you to all of our fans who have supported us,” the musicians shared in a statement. “We hope our BLINKs cherish and enjoy this moment as much as we do. We achieved this together. We will continue our growth as artists with positive energy, along with high-quality music and visuals.”
