The free hugs event was broadcasted on MNET "Yoo Se Yoon Art Video." The mission was that the free hugs team had to hug 704 people while the running machine team kept running on their treadmills. If any one member got off the treadmill before the free hugs team finished hugging 704 people, the mission would be a failure.
As the 'free hug' team started hugging people, the 'running machine' team commented on how hard it was to stay on the treadmill. They felt that it was the 'race of death'. In the end, it took ZE:A about 40 or so minutes to complete the mission.
ZE:A's agency commented, "Since this was not a previously mentioned event, many people thought they would not succeed. They were also not in their best condition due to their upcoming comeback practices. Their sense of determination was what probably helped them to complete the mission."
ZE:A will be holding a showcase for their 2nd album at Yonsei University on July 3.
