You'll have to do it after. Id probably doesn't even have a value since
you're just creating the row.

But, why do it this way? Why not add two more columns where you put in
'whatever' and 'whatever', then do the CONCAT when you actually SELECT
out the data. Then nothing is repeated. With your method, what if the ID
ever changes, then you'll have two columns to update.
