Words fall short in praise for the respect and support given to our girls by the members of Super Junior. It is an accomplishment for a rookie group to collaborate with an Artist who has made a name for himself in the industry. Somin and Jiwoo could not have done it without the support, love and encouragement from Super Junior and ELF in every step of the presentation. We, Hiddens, could not be more proud of our girls and that they were able to live up to expectations and more. Our gratitude may not come close to matching the support Super Junior and ELF gave KARD this week. If words are anything to go by, know that Hidden will be grateful to Super Junior and what gentlemen they are for a long time to come.”
