A. 스무 살이 되면 갑자기 막 어른스러워질 것 같았는데 아니더라고요. 빨리 성인다운 성인이 되고 싶어요. 진짜 시작이라는 생각이 들어서인지 한편으론 다행스럽기도 하고 또 한편으론 초초하기도 해요. 하지만 정확한 목표가 생기기 전까진 지금 제 일에 최선을 다하고 열심히 할 생각이에요. 그리고 어떤 문제에 부딪혔을 땐 슬기롭게 헤쳐나갈 수 있는 사람이 되고 싶어요.
A. 2013년에는 비투비를 좀 더 많이 보여드리고 싶어요. 우리도 좋고 대중들도 좋아할 수 있는 음악도 만들고 싶고요. 하지만 급하게 서두를 생각은 없어요. 배우고 싶은 건 많은데 성급하게 해서 일을 그르치고 싶진 않거든요. 또 개인적으론 스무 살이 된 만큼 클럽에 가서 심신이 모두 지칠 때까지 놀아보고도 싶어요.
A. 남을 이해해줄 수 있고 자신에게는 엄격한, 카리스마 넘치지만 귀여운 어른이 되고 싶어요. 그리고 20년 후에는 애 아빠가 돼 있지 않을까요. 대신 교과서적인 아빠 말고 융통성 있고 아이들의 가능성을 통찰할 줄 아는 현명한 아빠가 되고 싶어요.

A. I thought if I turn 20 years old I will suddenly feel like an adult, but that wasn’t true. I want to become an adult who is very adult-like. When I think about it this is only a beginning, and this thought relieves me, but also makes me nervous. However until I have a clear goal for myself I am planning to work hard and do my best in my career now. And I want to become someone who can solve problems wisely when encountered with hardships.

A. In 2013 I want to show more of BTOB. I want to make music that is liked not only by BTOB but also by the general public. But I don’t plan to rush into things. I don’t want to do a very hasty job because I rushed into things. Also, a personal wish is since I become 20 I would like to go to a club and party until my body and mind become tired.
A.I want to be an adult who can understand other, can be tough on myself, and can be charismatic but cute at the same time. And in 20 years wouldn’t I be a father of a child? But instead of very textbook-like dad I want to be a dad that can be fair, understanding, insightful of the child’s potential and wise.

[INTERVIEW] Hyunsik in the eyes of his father, Im JiHoon?

hyunsik

T/N: Im Hyunsik is the son of Im JiHoon, a folk singer who has been in the music industry since 1987.

– We heard that your son debuted as a singer.

“Im Hyunsik who is currently promoting under idol group ‘BTOB’ is my son. I couldn’t see much of his face lately. Since he has ventured in music, I hope he makes a good musician. I hope he gains experience, faces hardship and mistakes, so that he can grow into a well-groomed musician. It’s good if he gets to excel in music through tough experience. I would be even happier if he becomes a global artist, so that he could promote Korea’s culture globally.”

– Son in the eyes of the father.

“Before my son debuted, I thought idols do lively songs. But when I observed the debut process, that’s not the case. I was shocked. As compared to what I’ve thought, it requires lots of hard work. In order to be singer, they have to dance, sing, write lyrics, compose and many other more without breaks. And because they have to show a good image on the outside, they have to take really good care of their exercise and diet plans. They read a lot and really spend the day busily. 24 hours seems to be not enough for schedules to be carried out. I was surprised at this. As they sing, they are also like workers. When I think about them ‘working on music for 8 hours and above?’, it made me embarrassed. When I look at my son, I felt that I saw something different than myself.”

[INTERVIEW] Sungjae for SBS Inkigayo Magazine

Yook Sung Jae
(Vocal & Rap)
1995.05.02

I am: the real magnae who is playful but behaves chic and haughty due to my mature appearance.

The gap when I am on & off stage:
10%. As compared to our activities, I have not been to show all my charms.

Back to the 1990
I would like to try being a ballad singer as I like how the the lyrics are emotional and poetic.

Words I use often recently.
“Have you eaten?”(Casual) or “Have you eaten”(Polite)
It seems like the easiest thing to say whenever someone approach me.

A dream I sincerely want to fulfill:
To be in a relationship

Things that can improve my mood:
The cheers I hear during our performances

A song which changed my life:
Kim Dong Ryul’s ‘Thank you’
I did not know much about music when I was young but the lyrics touched me deeply. It also created my dream of wanting to sing.

The person who influenced me the most
The most precious treasure number 1, our fans.
If there are no fans, there will not be BTOB.

My weapon to be different from others:
Mature appearance, if you want to add another point.. the shape of my eyes? Haha

A praise and warning to myself:
“If you work hard and enjoy what you do, money and fame will come following after. ” do you remember these words father said to you?
Do not lose your original intentions, let’s always be hardworking people!
And you are quite good looking, you little kid!

BTOB has this charm too:
Able to enjoy music without having to try
All 7 members are crazy about music
The public can also be crazy

3 promises you would make to your future girlfriend:
I will always be on your side no matter what
And of course, I will not cheat on you
I will say I love you everyday

[INTERVIEW] BTOB’s Interview with EPOP Malaysia

Q: BTOB is known as a multi-talented group.

Changseob: That’s because we can play instruments other than singing and dancing. I learned to play piano and drum since I was in Grade 3 in high schools. Eunkwang and Hyunsik know how to play piano too

Q: You like to look at the mirror?

Eunkwang: I didn’t like to look at the mirror after I put on my makeup. The members said I am someone who didn’t like to take care of my appearance but lately I look at the mirror a lot (laughs)

Q: How did you got the nickname ‘Arrogant Ilhoon’?

Ilhoon: Maybe because I looked arrogant on TV. Actually I am not. Lots of people said I looked like Yong Junhyung BEAST. But I am grateful because this means they looked on me.

Q: What are your aims?

Minhyuk: I want to be the first person that people would think of when they heard ‘BTOB’. Compared to an older fans, I am more popular with the younger fans. Maybe because I looked younger than my real age.

Q: Were you able to suit yourself with the lives in Korea?

Peniel: I came from Chicago. I went to Korea for the sake of being a singer. Before this I never thought of going to Korea. For the sake of learning korean, I watched lots of dramas. But it’s still hard for me to fit in with the culture. I am always confused with the formal words especially when I met the sunbaes.

Q: Has anyone ever said that you looked like Seo In Guk?

Sungjae: Yup. Not long before this I took a picture with him at the hair saloon. He looks more handsome in reality. But lots of people also said I looked like Lee Min Ki sunbae. I feel so happy because both of them is a great sunbae.
