2011.03.30 Wednesday 01:34Look foward to the day’s work and end… ㄱㅂㅂㄷ ㅍㅇㄴ
T/N (Choi_Yoori): Bestiz suspects that “ㄱㅂㅂㄷ ㅍㅇㄴ” stands for “개봉박두 피아노”. Based on his previous diary entry, he could be talking about the piano version for ‘Again’.
With lots of anticipation MBLAQ “The last K-POP Monster” will debut in Japan in May.
This time we will be focusing on their first full length album “BLAQ Style” that is release in Korea in this interview. I can feel the enthusiasm between the 5 members towards their activities in Japan.
1. This album is one that has high degree of completion. From the title of the album, we could feel that it means “MBLAQ’s Style!” With these, can you explain to us roughly what the style is? (I could feel the strong will of competing in the music industry. You put in lots of effort in producing it right?)Seungho: As long as you listen to the songs in the album, you will be able to feel what we want to express in the album. It is the style that only MBLAQ has.G.O: Recent singles that are release tracks are very ordinary and sparse, so we wish to produce an album with high quality and also it must worth the price.Joon: In general, we can release a new song in a month; however, we stopped all of our other activities to concentrate on this album.Cheondoong: I want to thank the company for heeding our advice, spending lots of time to complete this album carefully.Mir: I’m also involved in writing the lyrics, and also have a collection of our own composition, I think this is an album that show MBLAQ’s members’ styles.
2. Within the whole album, the electric music element is very strong, bringing music video feeling together. Is it because you wanted to have all the same music element that is why you remix “Oh Yeah and “Y”? (Is it that you fear the original song will not be compatible with the album’s style hence you didn’t include them in?)Seungho: Because everyone know the original version of “Oh Yeah” and “Y”, hence we would like everyone to listen to something refreshing.G.O: Because we wanted to bring a new feel to everyone from our past songs, hence we do a remix with them.Cheondoong: We wanted to bring in new different performance and that is remix versions.
3. Title song “Stay” is also a very aggressive song, what is your first impression after listening to it? What kind of charisma does it contain?Joon: “Stay” is a song that is a little different from our other songs that we have before. Compared to “Oh Yeah” and “Y”, it is more appealing.Mir: Singers always are troubled about how to show a better performance to everyone, we met this song when facing this problem. I think it really suits the style of a Korean Idol and the dance move.
4. G.O composed “Unable to Return” in the Repackage album; you have interacted with Rado who composed “Stay”, to MBLAQ, what does the existence of Rado meant to you?G.O: I felt really thankful to be able to work with such a good composer. Because he is really busy, he also spent lots of time for us. I would like to work with him again next time.
Seungho:Q: You are going to debut in Japan! How are you feeling now?Because it’s a new beginning, I felt really nervous and excited.
Q: Towards your Japan debut, you must have learnt some Japanese, what is the sentence that you memorized recently?It’s “Let’s meet again next time”. Japanese is different from Korean; there isn’t any point where we should pause, hence I don’t really know when and where to change my breath. I had a hard time breathing… (chuckles).
Q: Please tell us a little interesting things that happen during the recording for your Japanese debut tracks.Because the pronunciations are really difficult hence we had a hard time with the recordings. Although there is an area, however, we had practiced countless times on this area.

Q: What is MBLAQ’s marketing point?The straightforward side that only belongs to MBLAQ.
Q: Please tell us the places where members are respectable.Because every member have their own style, so respect the styles of each member.
Q: What is the turning point in life?Previously has been specializing in acting, however because I like singing and dancing, I wish to become a singer when I was 22 years old, this is my turning point.
Q: When was your happy moment?I always felt happy when I stand on the stage.
Q: What is the thing that you must do before you sleep?Listening to music while reading magazines about machinery, then surfing the internet before I went to bed.
