In an interview with Malaysian Gazette, Muhammad Fikri shared, “One week before school reopen, I had already made preparations. I was looking for my school uniform because it’s been awhile since I went to school. I couldn’t find it.”
Muhammad Fikri also gave a priceless answer when asked about what he did during the movement control order (MCO). According to him, “I watched K-dramas and sleep. As for studying, I prefer to do it at school rather than at home. The internet (at my house) got stuck at times.”

“Actually I was just joking. I thought they were going to cut that particular part. I was quite shocked when they released everything that I said. Shortly after the session, I got scolded by my teacher,” Muhammad Aris clarified when contacted by Astro Gempak, in response to the massive amount of reactions received.
He further added, “I’m not a fan of Korean artistes, but I do enjoy watching Korean dramas. Not to say that I’m obsessed, but instead of not doing anything, I just watch it.”
