[INTERVIEW] B1A4☆STYLE – Volume 1!

Posted: 29 Jun 2012 08:33 AM PDT


Vol.1 Nice to meet you, we are B1A4☆
―― We're starting this new publication with B1A4!
Members: Yahoo!

―― Let's start with an introduction as to what kind of group B1A4 is.
Gongchan: We are like a playground, with a variety of charms.
―― The playground is a place where everyone finds their inner child. We'll continue to ask everyone about our charms, starting from now on. Sandeul, what do you think about the group?
Sandeul: It is what makes me healthy. We are a group that enjoys singing next to our fans. That is B1A4.
Baro: We do not put up a pretense, and B1A4 is a group that is extremely amiable!

―― So you guys are very close to the fans. B1A4 is a group name derived from the blood types of the members. How does the sole member with blood type B think of the other members with blood type A?
Baro: Jinyoung hyung is very much like a leader, and is charismatic.
Jinyoung: (smiles)
Baro: But there are times where he acts like a spoilt baby too. (laugh)

―― Is there a big difference? When does he become a spoilt baby; we'll be questioning him thoroughly from now on~
Jinyoung: Please look forward to it!

―― We will look forward to it. What kind of person is Sandeul?
Baro: Sandeul is always bright, and he smiles easily.

―― His existance is like the mood maker. How about CNU?
CNU: CNU is shy around strangers, but if he's with the members he becomes very talkative.

―― I see. We want to hear a lot from CNU in this publication so please take us of us.
CNU: Yes! I will work hard!

―― Lastly, what kind of person is Gongchan?
Baro: Gongchan is someone who is as detailed to cleaning up after us, and he is a maknae who treats us well.

―― So he is the considerate and reliable maknae.
Gongchan: If I weren't reliable…..
Jinyoung: Ahaha (laugh). As a leader, I really depend on him because he is so detailed.

―― So what kind of person does Baro seem like to the members with blood type A?
Jinyoung:He looks friendly, but has a surprising self-disclipined side to him.

―― So he lives by his principles?
CNU: I've always thought that blood type Bs were very cold. But when you look at Baro, he's the total opposite; friendly and warm. He changed my image of blood type Bs.
Baro: (smiles)
Sandeul: Honestly in the beginning, I didn't even know the differences in personalities between blood type As and Bs….

―― There might be a difference in personalities and characters between the members with blood type A too.
Sandeul: Baro has a very cool image to me. Sometimes he feels like a blood type A to me? For example when he becomes timid…. (laugh)
Baro: (laugh)
Sandeul: On the opposite, there are times when I'm cool about things, and there are times when I'm timid. I'm similar to Baro.

―― You guys seem to have many complaints (laugh)!
Jinyoung: Even so, it's not a bad thing (laugh).
Gongchan: Generally, I think we're a very charming group.
Baro: I feel that the more you get to know us, the better you'll like us.

―― What are your impressions of the Japanese fans?
Sandeul: The language spoken may be different, but other than that they are no difference from the Korean fans. The way they cheer us on is the same~!
Members: That's right~ It's the same~!!
Jinyoung: There are also many fans who come to our events wearing the same outfits as us (cosplay!?). Initially we were shocked but it was nice because they looked upon us nicely.

―― That is because not only just your high quality of music and performance, your cool pop fashion has been receiving much attention.
Baro: That is something that we pay much attention to, so we're really happy. In future we wish to try different styles of fashion.

―― What are the things that you wish to do during your promotions in Japan?
Sandeul: Most importantly, I want to stand on many different stages in Japan. I want to spend time with the fans!
Baro: I want to be on a stage where I can have a carefree performance, like a summer festival. I also wish to interact with Japanese artistes. Via the publication of ORICON STYLE, I want to create a new character, and consider a story for me and Sandeul.

―― What is this new character you speak of!?
CNU: I want to go to different places in Japan and meet people.

―― Do you have a goal for your Japanese promotions?
Gongchan: I want to receive the rookie award!
Jinyoung: I want to hold a concert in front of the fans! And achieving number one on the Oricon charts!

―― Finally, please leave a message to the readers.
Members: Everyone~ We'll be appearing on ORICON STYLE with the different sides to us, so please look forward to the publication~ We're looking forward to everyone's messages!
