110 questions to satisfy your curiosity!

In the beginning of June, B1A4 had their first interaction with Taiwanese media. Since their debut on 23rd April till now, it has been less than 3 months’ time but they faced the media with a sense of professionalism and friendless, leaving the editor with a strong impression. It is not surprising that they have seen to be the best rookie group currently. Since debut, B1A4 has not had any overseas promotions yet, but their debut mini-album 'Let’s Fly' has been spreading all over the internet, allowing fans all over Asian to know and like them. Taiwan too
has a lot of their fans, to their surprise!
Other than Baro who is a B Blood type, the rest of the B1A4 members (Jinyoung, CNU, Sandeul and Gongchan) are A Blood type, thus, they were named as B1A4. Before debut, B1A4 released a comic strip with characters that fits each member’s personality in reality. The five charming boys in the romantic comic caught the hearts of many female fans and that passion heightened when B1A4 came out live! B1A4 now shares more about themselves to the readers of Fans magazine in this special interview!

Shining Smile, CNU
With a broad shoulders and lengthy limbs with shoulder-length hair tied up, CNU is similar to the
handsome senior from the sports club in comic books. Despite his stiff-looking exterior, he is actually
someone who is really sensitive and emotional! Whenever he flashes his killer smile, many fans
would be charmed by him!


1. What kind of person are you?
I am someone who can be depended on, who would work hard to show everyone what I can do. I hope how I am on stage would allow everyone to feel my sincerity and my kindness and honesty when I am off stage.

2. What were you before you became a singer?
Before debuting as a singer, I had performed with my friend at different stages. No matter what kind of stage there is, I am willing to stand on stage and perform for everyone.

3. A song that encouraged you to be a singer, and had a lot of impact on you?
Usher’s “U Got It Bad”. I grew to like Usher more when I heard this song for the first time. After watching his performance, I was even more determined to become a singer like him!

4. A person you respect a lot?
Usher. In terms of singing and dancing, he is a multi-talented artist. His stage presence is amazing and he even interacts with his fans! I wish that I can be like him, being able to enjoy being on stage and interacting with my fans.

5. What about you do you think is most charming?
Smile. Many fans often tell me that my smile looks good. On the other hand, I think that my broad shoulders and smooth legs is my charm as well! (laugh) It might be due to my training in sports and Taekwondo since young that I have a good-looking figure.

6. Something that makes you frustrated?
I often feel that my eyes are really dry from wearing contact lenses, so I blink more than usual.

7. What advertisement do you think you’re suited for?
If there are any CF that are willing to allow me to take part in, I would feel really appreciative. However, if there is any CF that I am interested in taking, it should be a CF on coffee. Because I love to drink coffee, coffee could help in portraying my charms. (laugh)

8. A color that suits you best?
Though I do not have a favorite color, but when I am shopping for clothes, I would often buy clothes that are black in color. Therefore, my wardrobe are mostly filled with clothing that are black so subconsciously, I ended up thinking that the color really fits me.

9. Your ideal type?
Someone who is motherly-like, who could understand me. An intelligent and sensible girl.

10. The saddest and happiest things you’ve encountered?
I do not have any memories that are sad but for the happiest moment, it would be during the performance for our debut stage as that was the moment I fulfilled my dream as a singer. The joy in being able to stand on stage cannot be explained through words.

11. Something you’ve found interesting or made you happy recently?
Observing how B1A4 fared during performance, then finding out the problem. We then practice in order to improve.

12. Something you need to carry about in your bag?
Tablet PC, MP3, headset, contact lens.

13. If you didn’t become a singer, what would you be doing now?
I do not know! I had always dream to become a singer since young so I had never thought of being in any other occupations. However, because I have always been training in Taekwondo, I would probably be advancing in the path of Taekwondo. On the other hand, I also love to eat samgyupsal so I might even open a barbecue restaurant!

14. What are your first impressions of the other members?
When I first saw maknae Gongchan, I thought he looked a little blank but after living with him, he is actually a very simple, cute and lively person.

15. The most humorous and fashionable member?
In terms of fashion sense, everyone is almost the same. Each member is able to bring out their own personalities through their dressing. The most humorous member would be Baro, he could even become a comedian (laugh)!

16. The member most suited to cross-dress?
It should be maknae Gongchan. His eyes are really big and his nose is sharp, he will look beautiful dressing up as a girl (laugh)!

17. In terms of popularity, looks and talent, where do you think you stand in B1A4?
This is embarrassing to say but actually in the group, there isn’t any ranking because everyone is working hard and does it well therefore, everyone is the first.

18. There has been many collaborations between artistes these days. If there is a chance, who would you like to collaborate with?
If I could collaborate with Baro, it should be really interesting. Though I would like to collaborate with the other members as well but because I rap too therefore, it would be interesting if I could rap together with Baro.

19. Since debut till now, what is the most memorable thing that happened?
It would be during the MV filming a few days back where Baro had challenged his first acting scene which is hugging the female lead. Since he did not know what to do, the situation back then was really interesting. His personality is really shy, if I was the one filming then, I could probably do it well! (Editor: CNU~ are you hinting your manager to give you such privileges next time?)

20. If you could swop bodies like in drama ‘Secret Garden’, what would you like to become?
I would like to become other members in B1A4 because everyone lives differently. I am curious of what they had been through and the hard work that they had put in before, and I would like to experience it myself.

21. If you had the chance to meet your Taiwanese fans, what would you like to do with them?
I would talk to the fans in Taiwan more, listen to everyone’s voice and share our stories with everyone.

22. What would you like to say to the fans of Taiwan?
Thank you very much for supporting us, B1A4 will work even harder to become the best idol group!

Strong Leader, Jinyoung
“In the next three minutes, it is impossible to show everyone what we have done and practice for the past two year.

Hiphop boy, Baro
In charge of creating the atmosphere in the group, Baro and Sandeul who are born in the same year are pretty good friends. If Sandeul were to be the group’s peace-maker, then Baro would be the group’s mood-maker. Baro wishes to hold a large-scale concert and enjoy it with the fans. Filled with loads of absurd ideas, the moment Baro stands on stage, he changes into a skillful rapper. That is where his charms lie.


1. What kind of person are you?
I am someone with a vivacious personality who likes new and interesting things.

2. What were you before you became a singer?
Before debut, I was just a normal teenager who likes to listen to music and hiphop.

3. A song that encouraged you to be a singer, and had a lot of impact on you?
All music are really great but Lil Wayne’s “Got Money” had left me with a deep impression.

4. A person you respect a lot?
It would be Lil Wayne. Despite being small in built, he could fully present a strong and powerful rap. This is something that I would like to learn from him.

5. What about you do you think is most charming?
My two front teeth, round eyes and my vivacious personality.

6. Something that makes you frustrated?
At times that I am not wearing caps, I feel less confident.

7. What advertisement do you think you’re suited for?
CF about caps! Because I often wear caps, therefore, I could portray the feeling of wearing caps easily! (laugh)

8. A color that suits you best?
My skin color is fairly dark, so I do not wear earthly colors. Usually when I shop for clothes, I would pick those in black.

9. Your ideal type?
A girl who understands me well.

10. The saddest and happiest things you’ve encountered?
The most depressing moment would be when my grandparents passed away. The happiest moment would be after finishing the very first recording and upon returning to the holding area with my heart filled with emotions, feeling that everyone’s hard work and effort had been worthwhile.

11. Something you’ve found interesting or made you happy recently?
It would be watching Lil Wayne’s videos and biography.

12. Something you need to carry about in your bag?
Contact lens, laptop.

Since I have been playing soccer for a long time, I might have become a soccer player if I didn’t debut as a singer. (laugh)

14. What are your first impressions of the other members?
Everyone was nice and their personality was good but maknae Gongchan was really different. At first, he portrayed a chic image in front of everyone yet after knowing him better, he starts to do aegyo, and is nice to all of us. (laugh)

15. The most humorous and fashionable member?
The most humorous member would be Sandeul while the most fashionable members would be Jinyoung hyung and CNU hyung.

Gongchan and Jinyoung hyung, as both their facial shape are prettiest! (laughs)

It should be Sandeul. Since both of us are friends (of the same age) so I feel that we could work well together.

19. Since debut till now, what is the most memorable thing that happened?
After recording our debut performance and returning to the holding room, we found out that B1A4 was ranking third in Twitter’s worldwide trending! When we saw this result, to us who have just debuted, it was really meaningful. We were really happy about it and really thankful to everyone who had supported us.

20. If you could swop bodies like in drama ‘Secret Garden’, what would you like to become?
I would like to become the Korea’s internationally famous soccer player Park Jisung. I would like to experience like how he does, running and playing soccer on the wide grass field!

21. If you had the chance to meet your Taiwanese fans, what would you like to do with them?
Go shopping together! (Editor: Nice interaction! It would be fans frantically shopping and B1A4 helping out with carrying the shopping bags right?)

22. What would you like to say to the fans of Taiwan?
To the fans in Taiwan, hello everyone! (laughs) We are a new rookie group but being able to receive everyone’s support, we are really appreciative. Though we had not gone to Taiwan before, but I believe we will in future so please do wait for us! Hope that everyone had a fun time with us through the interview. Till the time when we officially meet, please do continue supporting B1A4. Thank you and love you all!

Quote
Charismatic maknae, Gongchan
There isn’t much more you need to say about Gongchan. If you take a look at the interviews of the first 4 members, you should already know a fair bit about him! Even though Gongchan looks very manly on the outside, but he is actually a very sentimental boy who is very loved and naturally cute!


1. What kind of person are you?
I’m someone who in the face of anything, will challenge it.

2. What were you before you became a singer?
Before debut, I was an active youth who had an extreme love for sports.

G.O.D’s ‘To My Mother’. This song was one that I listened to frequently when I was young, and the content of the lyrics are very touching.

葉正. I was very touched to see him standing on the stage again.

5. What about you do you think is most charming?
I am the maknae with manliness and aegyo, but I am a little lost at time; and for appearance-wise, my most charming points are my eyes and my bread-like butt (laugh).

6. Something that makes you frustrated?
If I go somewhere with many people, I will be so nervous that I get stomachaches.

7. What advertisement do you think you’re suited for?
Coffee. I always imagine, what would it be like if I got to film for a coffee CF.

8. A color that suits you best?
White. Because my skin color is a little dark, wearing a white-colored shirt would make me seem brighter.

9. Your ideal type?
All of the points of the girls what the 4 hyungs spoke about! (Writer: The maknae has so many criteria for his ideal type!)

10. The saddest and happiest things you’ve encountered?
Occasionally when I think about things related to death, I get sad. The happiest time was when I received my first copy of B1A4’s album.

Practicing my personal talent!

12. Something you need to carry about in your bag?
Sweets! Looks like I’m still a kid… (laugh).

I would be working hard to take my entrance exams!

Jinyoung hyung is the very dependable father, Shinwoo hyung is the benevolent mother. Sandeul hyung is like a friend, and Baro hyung is the hyung who makes everyone laugh.

Baro hyung is the funniest member; for fashion sense, almost everyone is the same.

16. The member most suited to cross-dress?
Myself, and I’ve had the experience of cross-dressing…

17. In terms of popularity, looks and talent, where do you think you stand in B1A4?

I’d like to do a ballad song with Sandeul hyung.

19. Since debut till now, what is the most memorable thing that happened?
Last year on 13 August after practice, I whined about wanting to go home to watch an interesting show. When I got back to the dorm and opened the door, I saw fried chicken, pizza, cake and a pile of presents. I was so surprised I cried. Because my birthday falls on 14 August, I never dreamt that the hyungs would prepare a birthday party for me a day in advance. I want to take the chance to thank the hyungs I love the most again (laugh).

20. If you could swop bodies like in drama ‘Secret Garden’, what would you like to become?
I want to become a lyricist. It must be great to be able to communicate with others with lyrics I wrote myself.

22. What would you like to say to the fans of Taiwan?
