ASTRO MJ Felt Empty While Performing Without Fans

Six years after ASTRO’s debut, MJ grew closer to their fans that it felt empty when they were not able to perform in front of them for a long time due to COVID-19.

But after three years, they finally had an in-person fan meeting which truly made MJ and his co-members happy.

He told the magazine that he felt the adrenaline during the event, and his feelings were intensified due to his desire to see fans in person.

“I’ve never had this long of a break or watched by while taking a step back from ASTRO activities. After enlisting on May 9 and leaving the training camp after wrapping up military training, the promotions for our album will have ended,” he continued.

ASTRO released their third full-length album, “Drive To The Starry Road,” after MJ’s enlistment on May 9.
