A Reversal of Six Personalities. Let’s play, FIESTAR!

Posted: 04 Dec 2012 07:50 AM PST

Like their song "Sea of Moonlight", six-membered rookie girl group FIESTAR, is indeed as gentle as moonlight. Two people holding their hands together tightly, the bewitching moonlight, sitting on the sandy beach, I would like to share with everyone a pure love. But when they reappeared again, working with experienced artist Tiger JK for "Wicked", used their abilities to take a hold of everyone's sight. This is really me controlling myself, this times "Dancing FIESTAR's Party", enjoy and ignite "Vista" stage that was full of energy. Irresistible, whether you really can tear your eyes away from the show of this group, FIESTAR's mysterious identities are arising. 

At a time where no one knew who they truly were, rather than the group's actual name, the nickname of "IU's sister group" was more familiar to people's ears. Once they stepped onto the stage, with a strong presentation and packaging, not only were the members able to individually showcase themselves, but the charms of the members were revealed as well.

"Sea of Moonlight", "Wicked", and "Vista", those three songs are present on their debut album, similar to a chameleon, each song gives off a different feeling. As an artist that just got took their first steps, yet did not ignore the experience of the stage, showing their abilities, they don't seem like rookies at all. Truthfully, the new song "Vista" has shown the "future", a road that will lead you forward. Moreover, they have not even given a preview of the festival yet to come.

재이 Jei
1989 September 5
A beautiful smile, FIESTAR's leader, Jei has met face to face with Infinite and participated in FIESTAR's MVs as well. A baby-faced beauty and the owner of eloquence.

Q: As the leader, what do you think of FIESTAR as a group?
A definite energized, bonded closely together type of group. When the practice becomes too difficult, all of the members will start making jokes, all the way until we finally smile. If we do not do well, the music we make reflects that. Especially in "Vista", the music in there had a lot of unique elements. Because we each have our own personalities, our music, therefore, will also have its own personality that is a FIESTAR feeling.

Q: As you frequently act in MVs, do you have any plans for acting in the future?
Absolutely! I would like to experience everything that's available for me. The desire to be in front of the camera was very strong for me, as a singer. I really want to be able to express many different emotions in front of people? There are many different approaches, so I really want to challenge myself. Shooting MVs are really interesting. As a matter of fact, on the day we shot the MV, I think my wish came true. The music video also starred JYJ's Junsu senior; I really liked the scenes he was in!

린지 Linzy
1989 October 22
For a long time, going through the life of a trainee, she accumulated skills. Even if it's the weekend, if she did not practice her singing, she would feel uncomfortable. She practiced hard, and using her own efforts, found the dedication from within.

Q: You've performed in concerts before, how did you feel?
I thought that it would just be a stage! It's wonderful to even think about it, and to some degree, it was very welcoming, but we didn't expect it to be that great. But no matter what, the members who all have long hair seem to be more popular, we were all debating about it. The album this time (T/N: She's referring to the 'Vista' album), while preparing for the role of the lead singer, my image went along with it, but I'm still a little bit sad about that day when I cut my hair.

Q: FIESTAR's dances have a lot of energy, how does choreographing go?
Every member is really strong. Our tastes are different, we're always practicing with the time or different backgrounds. Once you add in the music that we like, the dances that we like are also different from the rest. When these 6 different people come together to perform a group dance,  in order to be compatible, it's a bit difficult. But while going with learning the dances, we've also learned to go with what the group as a whole wants or needs.

The songs compiled on our album each have their individual personalities and is also because of the unique characteristics of us, as individuals, and of us as a group. I will become more beautiful on our return!

혜미 Hyemi
1990 August 10
After being a trainee for six years, Hyemi has earned the nickname of "Loen's fossil". Without giving up, she protected her spot, and so, she shines more brightly on stage.

Q: On the stage, as long as there is a long wait, is there an even greater desire?
There are many people who dream of becoming singers. Anyone has the desire of standing on stage, but the training period is really long, so I have always waited for a long time. In reality, my family and my friends have waited for the day when I would debut. This year's Chuseok (T/N: Korean Thanksgiving), when I went back home, all my family and friends really were… Keep on practicing, celebrating together happily when seeing our new song.

Q: Do you have any friends that debuted earlier than you?
The people that I've spent my trainee years together with: IU and MBLAQ's Thunder. I'm also friendly with After School's Raina and SPICA as well. IU, Thunder, Raina, and I are the four combination. Up until today, it has always been my friends who were getting ready for their stages, observing my friends, but this time I have finally debuted as well. Coincidentally our promotion periods were similar, so there are a lot of mixed feelings. Now, we're preparing to stand on the stage together, and we see each other in the  waiting rooms

체스카 Cheska
1992 March 11
Born and raised in the United States, Cheska set foot in Korea to pursue her dreams of becoming a singer. Although everything was unfamiliar to her, in order to fulfill her dreams, the young girl never gave up, even dreaming of a love here.

Q: Do you admit to having a 4-D personality?
I admit! (Laughs) I do have those times. For example, when my friends are walking on the streets, I would want to eat ice cream. Should I eat the guy's? What about the girls? What if we're a couple? Should I eat my favorite flavor? Or should I try for something new? This kind of curiosity just comes like the wind. (You have to admit that she has a 4-D personality here. "Really like Cheska's sigh~" kids who share the same feelings as Cheska will be able to relate)

Q: Did you dream of being a singer as a kid?
Yes, I've always dreamed of being a singer, and it was a very strong desire as well. Through my parents' approval, I uploaded a video onto Youtube. An agent (T/N: She's not talking about LOEN) saw it and contacted me. But Korean, I thought it was pretty ok, but I didn't know how to speak formally, my Korean was pretty poor, so there were many misunderstandings. At that time it was very difficult emotionally to go back to America, but in the end I went back to Korea, and I entered LOEN. I learned for the first time how to care and love others, and I loved to practice. Knowing how to love gave me a cause.

예지 Yezi
1994 August 26
A fifteen year old dancer that had no fear of dancing on stage. The new dance was to become the future dream of the young girl. A powerful rap, her story will shock everyone.

Q: As a young dancer, do you believe that you will be able to stand brightly on the stage?
I grew up watching dancing. Learning from Clon, having the chance to watch Hong Jinmin senior's concert. Our home's Gangneung concerts were primarily in Seoul, when there was no school, every weekend I would always travel to Seoul and cheer. It took 4 hours to get to Seoul when travelling by car. In my second year of middle school, the other backup dancer eonnis and the solo dancers all had their chances. Back then, my parents originally were against it, but after seeing how I advanced in Seoul, they gave consent for me to stay in Seoul.

Q: What's the reason for your dream of dancing?
The reason that dancer-singers exist, is because of the people who watch them. But the experience of standing on stage, every time the happy faces of the seniors and the cheers they received, seeing that backstage, I had the thinking that even "a small, quiet applause" would be good enough. Afterwards, I passed the the auditions, and started my trainee life. When we debuted, I already had experience dancing on stage, so I was quite calm. From pre-debut, to the makeup, I was calm. But once rehearsals started and I could hear the support, I finally experienced how it was to be a singer. That moment, my dream came true.

G-Dragon's Interview in K& Magazine: Part ②

Posted: 04 Dec 2012 07:20 AM PST

Q17: What is so nice about carrying out your solo activities?
A: I can do the things that I want to do. When I am carrying out the activities with Big Bang members, because I have to consider the benefits of the group, I cannot just wear what I want to. It is just not good that if there is a person who is different from the others in the group…
However, when I am carrying out my solo activities, there are no such restrictions. I can try out different kinds of styles.
Therefore, I have the chance to try out the clothes that I have been wanting to try. I have also taken up the challenge of making the music that I want to experiment with. I can do what I want to do.

Q18: There were scandals about your plagiarizing music of foreign artists. 
A: If there are some foreign artists that you like, then it will affect your music style. However, it is weird that if you say that directly affects the style of your rap and the songs.
Even though we are singing about the same theme, we can still change the ways that we express our feelings. If you describe that as plagiarism, don't you think that it is just an misunderstanding about the artists?
Although there was such a scandal, I do not care about their comments on this.

Q19: What are the differences between your activities in Big Bang (as a group) and as G-Dragon (solo)?
A: I have thought of distinguishing them before, now I try hard not to make a distinction between them. No matter if I am working in a group or carrying out my solo activities, I am just so eager to produce good music.
If I really have to make a distinction, compared with (solo versus) working in 'Big Bang,'. I can try the music that I want when carrying out my solo activities. And with 'Big Bang', I try to produce music which can be appreciated by more people.
If friends think, 'this music can only be produced by G-Dragon', then I will be very happy.

Q20: There are people saying, 'after Seo Taiji, only G-Dragon can give us such a strong solo'.
A: This is my pleasure but I think this is just an illusion of the audience. I do not strive for that. I understand how good the showbiz was when Seo Taiji and Boys were leading the field.
Instead of saying I am striving to be like him, I have been working hard to find my own style. I want to produce music like 'DEUX' or '015B' ,the music that people still remember after 10 years or 20 years.

Q21: There are people who comment that you tend to 'reach the climax before other artists'.
A: I am very grateful for the compliment. This is something which can encourage me when I am working hard. However, since I don't know what my future will be like, I don't think I am already at the peak.
I think people think I am good through the cameras or after watching my stage performance. My target is that I will/can make music after 10 or 15 years.
Before I reach my goal, there are some praises on me but also some negative comments.
In fact, I am that kind of person who does not really care about what others say about me, no matter what kinds of response they give me, I will not be affected.
I hope this kind of character can lead me to my final destination.

Q 22: The fans that impressed you most?
A: I cannot forget what happened when our ALIVE tour took place in China.
The Chinese fans used their cars to surround us, which stopped us from moving anywhere. Then, those fans got out of their cars and took pictures of us.
Fortunately, after taking the pictures, they let us go. Although it was quite terrifying, when I looked back now, it sounds quite interesting.

Q23: The styles of music that you love the most? 
A: I like hip-hop very much. This was also from the charm of hip-hop that I started to know music.
Of course, this is also the field that I have the most confidence in. However, since there are a lot of excellent people and they have different standards, I just think it is the best only when I can do things that really satisfy myself.

Q24: PSY of your company has become a worldwide super star, don't you envy him?
A: I am really happy for his being successful and I also envy him. Although he has achieved great success and changed many people's perceptions towards Asian artists, I think while he is feeling happy, he is also feeling stressed about it.
Although I cannot understand what he feels 100 percent, we did feel the same when we were at the EMAs as Korean artists and won the Worldwide Act Award for the first time.
No matter what, because PSY has opened the door towards the overseas market, I hope that the activities of the Korean artists can continue on smoothly.

Q25: What do you think is the secret to success for 'Gangnam Style'?
A: After listening to it, we can follow along with it to sing very easily. People can sing it in KTV or when they are playing with friends. The parody lyrics are also very good. This is a song which can hype up the mood.
There is no standard about what good songs are but Psy's 'Gangnam Style' reflects what the society is like to some extent.
The music market of America now is not as prosperous and people are searching for songs that can make them happy. However, there are songs which do have the format but no fun can be found in them.
Psy is really superb.

Singer IU showed her love by donating 10 million Won to her high school.

On December 4, a representative of LOEN Entertainment revealed, "IU donated 10 million won to Dongduk Girls' High School in order to help some of the students going to the school."

After graduating from the school in October, IU made a donation for the school to purchase books for its library. IU has also stated recently that she wishes to continue paying tuition for juniors in need.

The school seemed to be wary of spreading the news, as there are people who take good deeds unkindly. However, the news was published on the 'Sunbaes news' segment of her high school news paper.

IU has been continually making donations to those in need. She previously donated all profits from the sales of "It's First Love" and "Ice Flower" and the appearance fee from Hope Concert – Help Multicultural Family.
