I was always happy and able to smile thanks to our AROHAs who trusted, supported, and waited for us for three years. Anyone can be tired and experience difficult things, but don’t feel burdened and always lean on ASTRO. We will also lean on our AROHAs when that happens. In 2019, ASTRO will gift you with good memories, happy things, and smiling days. Always be healthy, and I love you.” “Wanna be your star!” began JinJin. “I’m ASTRO’s mountain ginseng JinJin! AROHA, it’s already our third anniversary! Wow! Our baby AROHAs turned three years old and we are in our fourth year of promotions. It still doesn’t feel real hehe.
