TOP also posted a video sharing his feelings about this space trip: “I have always dreamed of the universe and the moon since I was a child. When I was selected to participate in this project, I was very happy. I take great pride and responsibility to be the first citizen and artist representing Korea to reach the Moon.
When I see the Moon at a closer distance, I expect myself to be more complete and return to Earth as an artist who finds new inspiration. I am not afraid of anything, I am not afraid of new experiences. Instead, I feel honoured and very excited to go into space. I want #dearMoon to inspire the world, give people hope, and make anyone with a dream feel that anything is possible.”
