- dong-tepo no.1's title was changed to rocket factory when beatmania IIDX 2nd style was released in Korea (under the beatstage II 2nd style title). The title card could still be found unused in beatmania IIDX 9th style.

Song Production Information
dj nagureo had something of a difference of opinion on what we should do for music and song direction for 2nd style, but as the schedule started to creep up on us he gave us this song. This is the only song I couldn't clear on normal mode, and I think it's the hardest seven star song we have. I've got some comments from dj nagureo on this song.
"'dong-tepo no.1' is a horrible game you probably don't know, but as a level-up countermeasure for you BEMANI fans, we've done a through investigation. Even after this, I hope you'll all be prepared for the "dong-tepo investigation in game form."
Video Production Information
Many players have no personal experience with the ultimate in difficulty, the seven star song. This song from dj nagureo seems to have been waiting for players to attain that personal dimension higher than TENGOKU. It's labeled as techno, but it doesn't really lend itself to any single description, and the more you listen to the song the more influences it seems to draw on. GOLI considered a particularly funny kind of technopop, so he decided to let the character from the 4KEYS mode song select screen, Fireboy (or FB for short) make an appearance in this song.
