»140214 [INT] MBLAQ in CeCi Magazine (Mar. Issue)
Q: Recently, MBLAQ members mostly appear in solo activities, how do you feel towards being able to comeback as a whole group together?
G.O: Because for a long period, we were just carrying on with our individual schedules, so this time it feels very different from the previous comeback. Although we see each other often, I still feel very happy, very nervous, and full of power at the same time.
Q: What do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of having more solo activities?
G.O: You can slowly build up your skills through solo activities, to me that is something really good. But when its eating time, I always feel the loneliness of not having the members beside me. The feeling of eating alone is very foreign to me.
Q: Soon its the 6th anniversary since MBLAQ debuted, you have already been friends for 6 years, what is the secret for maintaining such a good relationship?
G.O: Through eye contact, we can already see what the other member is thinking. If its Seungho, he would listen to each member’s problem and then suggest a way to solve it, I think this is really charming. For Joon, he is serious towards everything he does. Cheondung, he has many weird thoughts. Mir is really kind and pure. Everyone didn’t change much, this is the reason we can stay together for a long time.
Q: What do you think is your charismatic point towards women?
G.O: My vocals. The way I treat people is also something that I get complimented a lot on. I have a way of solving embarrassing situations. Once I have decided to do something I will always work to the best of my ability. I should deserve a 5 star for this standard right?
Q:What do you want to say to your moustache?
G.O: What ah, why do you keep growing? Shave you twice a day and still not satisfied!
<If you search for G.O, weird things pop out>
G.O: When you search ‘G.O’, a company would appear, and also a news article about a new medicine that cures lung cancer XD
G.O likes his girlfriend to use sweet tone to call him hubby.
Q: Use 3 words to describe what kind of person are you.
Joon: Ordinary, have many secrets, weak, wink(?) & a really shy guy.
Q: Last month you released your solo track ‘Gone’, are there any moments that made you feel proud?
Cheondung: ‘Gone’ is the second song in my life that I have composed and wrote the lyrics for, so I personally really like this song. ‘This street is filled with our memories You’re not beside me anymore, you’re gone’ these sad lyrics and a bit of hip hop groove added becomes a very fascinating song.
Q: Under what circumstances did you decide to release a solo track?
Cheondung: Although in MBLAQ what I should be doing and achieve up to what standard is already determined, but I’m curious to see what it feels like to stand on the stage all alone. Some day in the future I hope to have an activity that has my own characteristic. Because now I still have many areas that I lack, so firstly I need to set my life plan.
Q: Preparing for musical Moon Night and MBLAQ comeback at the same time should be very tiring right?
Cheondung: So busy that I have my four legs facing the sky (idiom for being very busy).
Q: How do you feel towards Seungho being your rival in the musical?
Cheondung: Quite anxious, but the fortunate thing is that although we are performing on the same stage, due to our schedules, our performance times don’t overlap. This is because I think Seungho is the funniest person I have ever met in my life. I requested this to the production team beforehand, because whatever Seungho says I would laugh out loud, so I need to elimiate the danger of NG (redoing) on stage because of laughter.
Q: Minsu (Cheondung’s character in Moon Night musical) travelled from the country all the way to the big city Seoul to become a dancer, this sounds similar to how you came from the Philippines and became an idol.
Cheondung: Especially how both of us didn’t know anything at all, weren’t familiar with places, and very old-fashioned, these things are really similar. But now I’m not like that anymore, I was worried for no reason back then.
Q: Living your life as a Korean idol, is there anything that you feel regretful?
Cheondung: There is only one thing that I must give up in order to do what I want to do, and that is freedom. The loss of freedom saddens me slightly, but the substitute is being able to gain fan cheers on stage. This is already something I can’t change.
Q: What do you want to do freely?
Cheondung: I want to go to the zoo. Before I’ve tried going to the zoo together with Seungho while wearing masks, but everyone crowded around us, didn’t even get the chance walk further in and we already had to walk back out, it was really a pity.
Q: Is living life as an idol happy?
Cheondung: No matter where we go we are welcomed as idols, and the love that fans give is very heart-warming to me. Honestly, compared to other people, more opportunities are opened up to me is because I’m an idol.
Q: What is your dream for 2014?
Cheondung: Eat what I want to eat, sit in the vehicle I want to sit, walk the path I want to walk. I sometimes have that impulse to travel overseas alone too. And after performing on stage, I’m curious what it feels like to cry all alone apart from crying because I feel touched.
