[NEWS] G-Dragon interview on Naver

Posted: 17 Feb 2012 09:21 AM PST

Interviewer: It has been a long time. How have you been?
GD: I've been fine. I spent my time with my family. Prepared for this album and spent some time thinking this and that.

I: What is your thought about singers? I wonder, what do you think about your figure?
GD: Well, when I was a young boy, I thought singers are cool. That's why I wanted to be a singer in my early years. I think Bigbang is cool. Not being on the stage, but also in real life. I don't mean that they are handsome and tall. I mean they got swag. There are so many things that I have to learn as a friend, a young brother, and an older brother. It makes me a burden because I'm a leader but it also makes me try to push myself.
I: What is your biggest stress/pressure?
GD: Preparing for the next album. It is one of biggest pressure to me because the next album is more important than the last one. When I had to prepare for the last album, 'TONIGHT', I thought "This is the most important album!" When I prepared for this album, I thought "This album is the most important one!" Maybe I will think again the same when I prepare for a new album. It is also one of my pleasant worries. I was pulsating. Well, I don't know. Last year, 'TONIGHT' was my favorite album. And now it's 'BLUE'. My taste in music changes continuously and I share it to people. I wonder what they will say to me after they listen to it and what part they like the most. I'm going well.

I: Bigbang sings mainly about LOVE.
GD: I think many Korean think about love a lot and they want comfort. When you hear music, you think that "Oh this lyrics is what I have in mind." or when you are sad, you hear the music and cry. That's why music is powerful.

I: Tell me about BLUE.
GD: BLUE… Many people think that idol group just have younger fans. But I think more twenties and thirties age group will really like this song. They will sing more and sympathize with this song more than teenagers will.

I: Do you have assurance in this album?
GD: Uh…. Yes. I'm always confident with it. Not boasting. When we hear our music, we said "That's it!" haha. Because it is ours. I pour out my soul and try to be frank. And… it is for the season.

[News] Jessica Talks About Her First Attempt in Acting

Posted: 17 Feb 2012 06:20 AM PST

Jessica expressed positive feelings on her first time acting in a drama.

Girls' Generation's Jessica is playing the role of Kang Jonghee in the KBS 2TV Wednesday/Thursday drama, "Wild Romance". Although Jessica has starred in a musical before, this would be her first attempt in acting.

The Jessica we saw through the interview was a person who was nervous but overflowing with willpower. On the subject of new challenges, Jessica stated, "I am having fun with it. I wish there was more time, so I'm sad." Jessica also said, "It is true that my appearance on 'Wild Romance' was decided in a rush. I didn't have a lot of time to prepare because there was also a lot of overseas schedules for Girls' Generation. I feel a bit sad that I couldn't focus on just the drama. However, I'm really happy that I could experience something new."

Girls' Generation is currently active not only in Korea, but also in Asia, as well as the United States and Europe. Despite all the activities they had, it did not change during the filming of "Wild Romance". Jessica even had to return to Korea first, alone, after completing schedules overseas. Jessica, who usually sleeps a lot, had to continue on acting with barely any sleep. Jessica said, "I could not get a lot of sleep. I was worried I would look tired in the drama. It is true that I was physically exhausted." She laughed and added, "However, there were a lot of things that I learned through this drama."

In the drama, Jessica had to cry in many scenes. This is difficult for a first drama attempt. On this, Jessica stated, "Emotional scenes were actually the most fun for me. I like myself focusing and immersing myself in an emotion."

Recently, Jessica was "dumped" by the male lead in the drama, Park Mooyeol, who is played by Lee Dongwook. When asked about how it felt to be "dumped", her cheeky personality showed, "I've never been dumped this badly even in real life before." After laughing, she said, "When I was concentrating on the emotions while acting, it actually hurt my pride."

Jessica also reminisced on her kiss scene with Lee Dongwook.

Through a recent interview with NewsEn, Jessica talked about her kiss scene with Lee Dongwook that garnered much attention not too long ago. Jessica recalled, "I acted out a kiss scene elsewhere before. But at that time I 'acted' like I did, so I was really nervous about this one."

She laughed and said, "Before we started filming, I was told, 'You really have to do this kiss scene,' and I got nervous." Jessica seemed shy about it and also added, "I shot the kiss scene comfortably by just going along with Lee Dongwook sunbae's lead."

When asked, "Were there any NGs?" she answered, "There were NGs… There were fewer NGs than I thought. But, there were a lot of cut scenes, so we had to shoot a lot."

To this Se7en answered, "Yang Hyun Seuk is my boss so we often meet so when we go drinking it is comfortable but If im with Park Jin Young alone it gets a little awkward" however, Se7en explained that because he has a lot of respect for Park Jin Young being his senior also a veteran in the music industry he is still formal when it comes to conversations to Park Jin Young.
