During the MT, the members of Girls' Generation and the boys played a game of "Yut" (Editor's note: A traditional Korean family game) to create a warm atmosphere, with a massage chair as a prize. The mothers and sons also had a meaningful time talking to one another and understanding each other better.

[Interview] B.A.P. "All six members have different colors"

Posted: 18 Feb 2012 01:50 AM PST



Rookie 6-member group B.A.P (Bang Yongguk 22·ZELO 16·Himchan 22·Daehyun 19·Youngjae 18·Jongup 17). Debuted in 3 weeks and already gaining members on their Internet Fan-cafe for over 20,000, debuted with the song 'Warrior' which is already topping on various daily music charts. "The team was formed with a goal to conquer the earth. We want our music to reach all over the world".
- Lately we heard you guys are becoming more popular. Did you realize.
"I don't know. When we perform and saw our fans cheering, it makes us feel stronger. Leader Bang Yongguk hyung and ZELO had debuted earlier and it was very helpful for the rest of us. The members had to give their handphones during trainee days, I don't know how to respond to that. There is almost no contact with the outside world."(Daehyun)
- So the handphones were taken by the company.
"It's not that. The members volunteered to to give them away. We dont really need handphones in practice room and the dorm except to call parent and members' family only. The aim is to focus on practice and the members only have one handphone for later use but then lost it. We'll borrow from manager-hyung if needed"(Yongguk)
- A little pre-debut story.
"Since middle school I play dae-gum (flute-like instrument)·Janggu (drum-like instrument)·ggwaeng-ga-ri etc as a major in traditional music. Then suddenly, I got into black music like hip hop and R&B. Naturally, I have the dream to be a singer and was street-casted and later was able to join the team. "(Himchan)
"There was a talent show on my Middle School campus and I sang to SG Wannabe's song. Standing on stage having friends shouting and cheering is overwhelming that I cant put into words. Since then, I've been knocking to audition hoping to be a singer. "(Youngjae)
"Since 3rd year in junior high school, I've been working with underground hiphop artists. When my parents found out about it they strongly opposed on the idea. Then I got to vocational school (Yuhan Technical High School) and said that they would allow me to be a singer if I did well so I studied hard. Then a scholarship was offered from a named college and in the end got my parent's permission. Passed to college but have not attend."(Bang Yongguk)
"I fell for dancing eversince I was a kid. In middle school, my friends and I created a dancing clubs and entered dance competitions. The show was by a casting manager. I was really lucky."(Jongup)
"I joined a dance academy in my 5th year of elementary school. Watching DBSK and Super Junior brought me up to be a singer. Joined the team after passing the academy's audition."(ZELO)
"I dream of being a singer eversince I was little. I worked hard to audition and sing professionally to learn more skills and I had to also study hard in school. Auditioned last summer and joined the team at last. I dream to be a great vocalist like 4MEN's Shin YongJae."(Daehyun)
- The title track 'Warrior' has an intense dance which is often compared to H.O.T's debut song 'Warrior's Descendant'.
"It is an honor to be compared with the seniors. But the seniors were from the 90s and at that time, we were too young to know anything properly."(ZELO)
-How is it like living in one dorm.
"We live together in a villa in Hannam-dong, Seoul. There are a total of 3 rooms and we use one room together. Another one is the closet-room, and the other one is a music studio. We have the chores divided thoroughly. Maknae ZELO does the laundry, Jongup does the dishes, Himchan throws the garbage, Youngjae keeps everything organized, as a leader I am in charge of managing (what goes around) the dorm. haha"(Bang Yongguk)
- You are in the same company with SECRET. Are you familiar with each other.
"The sunbaenims took care of us eversince we were trainees. They make us food on Chuseok (Thanksgiving)·Lunar New Year and brought it to the rehearsal studio for us."(Youngjae)
-B.A.P's competitiveness.
"All six members have different personality. Six members each with different colors to show you a different side and image of ourselves. "(Himchan)
-B.A.P's goal.
"A week before debuting, we had a meeting in the dorm and had the goal to 'conquer the earth'. We not only want our music to stay in Korea, but also looking forward to stretch to a larger global market. Starting next month in March, we'll be going to Singapore and Malaysia for a first fan-meeting overseas."(Bang Yongguk)

[Trans] After ‘Mozart!’ and ‘Tears of Heaven’, appearance in ‘Elisabeth’!

Posted: 18 Feb 2012 01:11 AM PST



JYJ's Kim Junsu may not be unfamiliar to you, but he has a new title – musical actor Kim Junsu. It has been 2 years since his debut in 'Mozart!'. When news of his debut in 'Mozart' broke, we thought that he was just venturing into another field, but he went on to act in 'Tears of Heaven' and 'Elisabeth' and became one of the leading respectable musical actors with star quality. Days before the premiere of 'Elisabeth', we met up with a passionate Kim Junsu.
===========
To Kim Junsu, his debut in the musical "Mozart!" was a risky challenge. While experiencing strife with his management company in 2009, he chose the musical 'Mozart!' as his first step after eight months of vacuum. He had never been interested in musicals. "In the end, the first musical I saw was the musical that I would act in," he laughs. But, he emphasized: "If I were to count my biggest challenge in life, it would be acting in musicals." 
"I like the music so I challenged musicals, but I was feeling vague about the unfamiliar genre. After a long time since their last official activity, he was the first member in JYJ to start his activities so he felt very burdened about it. Will I do well when I start acting this art piece? I was very worried. I calmed myself and thought that I have to do well since I had already started."
However, his worries were unfounded. Tickets of the musical, which starred other musical actors, were sold out early and he was reborn as a musical actor in 'Elisabeth'. As time goes by, Kim Junsu receives more favourable comments for being a musical actor. "The amount of hardship that I had experienced at that time and the decision to act in musical was difficult, I was able to gain confidence and make a comeback thanks to the support and concern of many people," he laughed.




"I have never once watched a musical. I must have been roped by musicals since I like them this much. In order to learn about musicals, I have to be fully immersed in them. I want to do my best till the end to reach my ideal since I have already started. It is my task to look at the art piece until I dislike it every time I act in a musical."
'Elisabeth' is Kim Junsu's third musical and it is one that has received a lot of love for 20 years since its first performance in Vienna, Austria in 1992. It is a musical about the story of 'Death' and an Empress who fell in love.
In the play, he transforms again to the role of 'Tod', which is also the transcendental 'Death'. 'Death' is a character who seduces the Empress beautifully and sweetly. "As 'Death' is transcendental and immaterial, its first appearance on stage is special. You can feel it wherever you are seating at. It is not ordinary," he said.
As there are almost no lines for his role and he has to use expressions and gestures to express himself, it is the biggest difficulty. "Since there are no lines, it is hard to express my intention of wanting to speak. However, it is difficult as there are no correct answers. I want to know how to view the ability to express unrestrictedly as a strength. It seems that I can enjoy myself on the musical stage now," he said with gleaming eyes.
As a musical actor and gaining explosive popularity as a JYJ member with many activities, he smiled and said, "I want to grow old in a cool way."
"I don't want to be at the top of public interest. Won't popularity end ultimately? Instead of getting the most popularity, I want people to remember that I am a singer even after a long time has passed. Until I feel that 'I have done well'".
The peculiar connection between Kim Junsu and Jo Seung Woo is eye-catching. Both of them are consistent stars who are also South Korea's musical ticket powers. Coincidentally, Kim Junsu's 'Elisabeth' premiere falls on the same day as Jo Seung Woo's 'Doctor Zhivago' premiere. In reality, both of them exchange messages and support each other's performances, thus they have a senior-junior relationship. "I got closer to Seung Woo-hyung after watching his performance in 'Zorro'. Although we talk a lot about musicals, we also often confide in each other. He is a cool and comfortable hyung to be with," he said.
These are Junsu's words about them being rivals. "Hyung is the best musical actor and I am just a newcomer who started now. I am honored to be compared to hyung, but I also feel burdened. Please do not compare the two of us from now on (laughs)!"

[Audio/Trans] Daesung's Interview on Naver!

Posted: 17 Feb 2012 11:51 PM PST





Q: Daesung-shi How have you been? 

Daesung: We had received the award 'World Wide Act' on EMA last year. It was a first that an Asian got a prize on EMA. We saw that award ceremony when we were still just a trainee. So it felt like a dream. I had YG Family Concerts in Korea and Japan with YG Family. These days, I'm doing my best for this album, ALIVE.



Q: Daesung-shi What is BIGBANG to you?
Daesung: BIGBANG is my family. We are so close to each other. We have so many good things. When we have problem, I want to say sorry to them. When we are happy, I want to say thank you to them. We are five but I feel that we are also one. 



Q: Tell me about ALIVE's meaning.

Daesung: We are not really old but we have been BIGBANG for 6 years now. We have already shown various performances. People got accustomed to our music. So we want to show them, our talent, musical trial and passion are still ALIVE. Not dead.



Q: Someone says that it's too early to come out. How do you think about it?

Daesung: I was so worried about that. I told Yang Hyunsuk, who is my boss, about my worries a lot. I gave a lot of thought about that matter. BIGBANG is a singer. We always tell them everything we want to express through our music. People express their feelings through crying or anger. We express it through music. Of course we need to have time for self-restraint and self-reflection but that period is not permanent. I want to share them about my emotion but care/worry sits heavily on me. I know it's early to come out but it's also right tim. I know that everyone can't agree on the same thing. We have a burden that we have to share. We want to share our good music to them.



Q: Tell me about BLUE.

Daesung: 'Sky Blue' gives us good feelings but our'BLUE', it is more like dark blue. It symbolizes longing, sorrow, pain and so on. We miss someone who's already gone in this song. First lyrics are "Winter is gone, spring is come…" I think that Blue's lyrics are really good. I felt that the same when I sang this song. Blue have two sensation; Hope and loneliness. Its melody is really lyrical and sad. I think it is also the right song to come out this time.
