Q. Oppa, during Power’s promotions, when you’re doing the ‘bomb bomb follow me’ part on broadcast, is it to induce laughter?
BYG: Yes. It’s a point to provocate the strong ones, is it too bright? We hope we can make everyone move with this laughter.
Q. I hope B.A.P won’t separate and that the members will show their charms for a long long~ time but, B.A.P’s image in 10 years??? I’m curious about it~!!
BYG: 10 years, 100 years, 1000 years, B.A.P’s members and BABY’s are together forever.
Q. Oppa’s low voice is really charming but while living until now, did you ever hate your voice?? I’m a woman but my voice is very low so it’s annoying ㅠㅠ
BYG: I never thought of my voice as charming nor did I hate it. Let’s love ourselves. As we are.
Q. Since it’s something I’m curious about for the members, this is going to be ok too right? In the song called Power, the lyrics are saying ‘There’s no justice’. I’m curious about whether you really think that there’s no justice in this society. Also, in the lyrics there’s the word ‘ego’, it seems like the word in itself ‘ego’ means ‘ego’ (T/N: She wrote it in Korean this time) but when I listen to the song, I felt like it meant more than ego and had another meaning. I’m curious about what meaning does the word ‘ego’ has in the song. There are several words that mean ‘ego’ (T/N: In Korean), so I’m also curious about why you specifically chose the word ‘ego’. I’m asking a question that has almost no chance to be picked but ever since I listened to the song for the first time I was curious about that so I’m leaving it here. :)
BYG: Wouldn’t the word ‘justice’ be the difference between the haves and the have-nots? The ‘There’s no justice’ in ‘POWER’ is for the strong’s absurdity in the society. Think of it as a resentment’s point asking to them ‘Don’t you have a conscience?’. The ‘ego’ in Zelo’s rap means ‘pride’. It means that B.A.P won’t submit to them and sing this song. This is what we can call ego, in other word it’s our pride.
Q. Yonggukie oppa! In the team, oppa is in charge of making the songs, where and how do you get inspiration and such?
BYG: It’s various. ‘Secret Love’ was inspired from a movie, ‘What the hell’ was inspired from social issues, I got the inspiration for ‘POWER’ from one of Picasso’s painting called ‘Guernica’. I’m looking forward every day what will stimulate me.
Q. I was very touched when reading the lyrics recently. The image of you trying endlessly until you succeed what you want to do no matter what it is touched my heart greatly, and it made me think that I wanted to live like that too. I was curious about how you did to not give up on your dream and do your best. Please become the strength that makes me realize my dream.
BYG: First, I think it’s the earnestness. And then the value is important. How concrete is my dream, am I going to adjust to other people’s point of view, the earnestness becomes a hope, and the hope will become a driving force to make you run toward your dream. The image of myself abandoning can also become a fertilizer. Look back on myself.
Q. Yonggukie hyung, hello! I’m a BABY.I also want to become a skilled rapper like hyung. I want to step successfully on the basics to come out in the future, but can you tell me how do I have to start and how do I practice and what process do I have to go through. I really like rap. It’s a dream I really want to realize. I’d be thankful if you could give me some advices. It’s a request. Thank you~^^! B.A.P! Yes, sir!
BYG: I don’t think there’s a method. I think that the mind and the attitude are important components of the hip-hop music. I never received any professional music lessons. If you try to enjoy music and play with it, you will discover that you got absorbed in it. The beginning and the ending are going to be different. The times where you’ll feel it’s difficult and where you face it and play are really different.
Q. My method only to relieve the stress I accumulated?
BYG: Being alone or playing alone. I sort out my ideas and reorganize what’s in my head. I just do anything without thinking about anything and without talking.
Q. What changed between before you debuted and after?
BYG: There are times where it’s burdening when a lot of people give you attention.
Q. Thinking as a leader, how’s B.A.P’s friendship or the feeling of thinking of each other?
BYG: They are cool friends. Feeling like sometimes I get innocent too because of their innocence.
Q. When oppa lurks on the cafe, which board do you read the most aside from the To.Member board??!!!
BYG: Photoshop capture. There are a lot of funny things there.
Q. From the debut until now, when was the time you were the happiest and enjoyed the most being on stage?
BYG: When I’m on stage is always when I’m the happiest and enjoy the most.
Q. Yongguk oppa, for the first time you’re feeling like you have to become a singer, what is the first thing you’d start?
BYG: I’d have to try singing. Not rapping.
