The MC and guests talked about how the international singer, Adele, wrote about a breakup story of her own in a song and Lee Hongki explained on how he also experienced the same thing, “The song is titled “Fade Out.” If I and my ex-girlfriend had a bad breakup, I won’t give her the royalty fees although we’ve talked about our breakup in an official way, I thought it would be weird if I ask about the royalty fees?”
“Thank you. I won’t forget. I’m doing my best. Everyone too @ssinz7” – @skullhong12
