they were full of affection. no matter how hard i try to view them from an objective view and try to not give them any affection, it always never worked. the last month of preparing for the concert, the concert team were all walking zombies, but we barely made it with their affection. the management team worked hard and thank you for thinking of us like family.
@metild87: @ssing0921 this group is so weird. every time they meet a new person, they all receive love from them..
@bboliangel: @metild87 @ssing0921 the kids are so nice (i don’t know what she says after)
@metild97: @bboliangel @ssing0921 yeah…they’re nice but also pretty (t/n: they don’t literally mean pretty as in beautiful, but they also use this term when they want to talk about how nice/caring someone is)
@ssing0921: @metild87 @bboliangel heuhhheueu.. they’re nice.. and pretty… and they wo-work hard.. on top of that.. they’re sensible.. haha..hahaha.. really… my cold exterior breaks down so easily
(music director): finished the first practice with the artists. they should have schedules early in the morning but..
“director-nim~ sorry but can we do it again?” .. and a message. why are you sorry. of course any time. an artist that works hard with sincerity ends up doing a long-run.
(message says: director-nim fighting!)
2014 01 11 @ssing0921: the kids did a video call with their manager’s phone and they said it was a pity that i couldn’t be there with them they personally greeted every staff member individually and said fighting :) with the members’ support the meeting became more serious. even though they are busy, they always ask “aren’t you tired?” to us first.. thanks to their support the staff smiled widely. the meeting for the next performance in the middle of the night was much lively after receiving the support. thank you :)
(person 1): ah, this week went by without much problems as well. ended this with a motherly smile thanks to the pretty kids who only did such pretty things : )
@person 2: @ person 1 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ it’s rare to have such a smooth and comfortable filming with idols like these kidsㅋ i had a motherly smile tooㅋㅋㅋㅋ
@person 1: @ person 2 they really have the best character.

B1A4′s Jinyoung had a phone call during ‘Sukira’. When DJ asked him to sing a verse of ‘Lonely’, how can he fulfill the request in 0.1 seconds with no hesitation at all. when (he’s at the studio for a photoshoot) the photographer asks him to make a pose, he responds at LTE speed. he really is a bright and passionate person with good energy. while i was in a meeting with the photographer for the may issue, the topic of the april issue came up. they were talking about how they were always thankful to jinyoung, and he’s the idol that they think about a lot. i told them “me too”; it was the first time somebody could relate to me (in general). i only talk about what happens behind the scenes once or twice but (jinyoung) makes me tweet all the time.
(ah ddal staff): all of the b1a4 members are so nice and full of manners. they must have been tired but they never got annoyed, or showed an upset face expression. the photographer kept praising them about how nice and full of manners they are, and i finally got to meet them myself. when we have time to eat, they always tell people around them to eat, and when they’re eating snacks and somebody comes up to them they stand up and tell that person “let’s eat together” and take care of people; even if they’re in an awkward situation they say “it’s okay” and laugh. i’m so happy they are the models for ah ddal~! i will make sure you guys will get sick of spicy riced cakes~!
(not sure who): b1a4 is very.. full of manners, sincerity, and have good teamwork. it’s the first time since 2NE1 that a group’s image for me has gotten so well at once. they enjoy what they’re doing, but at the same time they’re full of manners, humble, and make people watching them happy as well. you can just feel the bright energy by looking at the making video. there’s a lot of idols who just play with their phones after the camera turns off but even if they’re not filming, they’re always restlessly playing around with each other to the point i can feel their friendship is very strong. the b1a4 members give lots reactions without our request. and each member is so happy and bright~ and sincere. such innocent vibesㅋ there’s a reason they’re doing well. we all said b1a4 is the best.ㅋ when we were recording, they all discuss things with each other.. produce (songs) themselves and are very detailed. makes me think they’ll be the last group with such good teamwork.
(ah ddal staff): even though their bodies were tired, the five boys of B1A4 and the staff ate the meal so wholeheartedly, thanks to all the ah ddal staff we were able to enjoy filming and not even realize how tired we were. since we were with them the whole time, i think i have fallen for B1A4′s charms ㅎㅎ how are all of them so lovely and full of manners~ every time they come and get food they always say “thank you for the food” and when they bring empty plates they say “thank you for the food” (t/n: it’s a mannerism thing in korea to greet people who serve food) every time and always give explosive reactions “it’s so delicious it’s so delicious” so how can i not become their fan^^
(photoshoot intern): i was at a photoshoot as an assistant but the kids were really nice. when i was cleaning the props they helped me.. i was touched. they were not arrogant at all and looked so nice. at first i was like whatever but now i just want to support them. i wish they would become really popularly. just saying, they’re all handsome but gongchan looks really good.
(long time vocal trainer) Kim 9hyun @9hyun: today was the first time b1a4 got 1st placeㅠ after i first met baro in 2009 and then jinyoung, cnu, sandeul, and gongchan and when they first debuted and had their first debut performance.. and when they received the rookie award and the day they had their first concert and today, the first time they got 1st place went by like a film.. when i first met b1a4 and taught them, i thought “wow there are kids who actually work this hard!?” whenever i say something or teach them something, they all received everything and tried to keep it in their memory. i think that’s why they improved so quickly too! that’s why when i taught b1a4, i think i was able to enjoy myself while teaching them. also one thing i liked was that they’re all so nice!! they only practiced with no freedom and lived the dorm life so they could have lots of complaints but they didn’t have any of that and just quietly, no, happily practiced. i thought i could do that too if i was a trainee and i thought that there are kids who can do that too but i’ve seen so many people leave because they couldn’t take it anymore… even now b1a4 make me the proudest and not because they’re famous!! i know better than anybody how hard they worked and how much they love music. and today b1a4 has finally gotten 1st place i almost teared up because i was so happy!!! to be honest my heart is still beating quickly… because i’m so gladㅎㅎ congrats kids!!! i love you!!!!!!! let’s fly b1a4 forever~!!
(from 3 different people): “jinyoung is always happily greeting people. in the movie, jinyoung is basically the same age as all of the other actors and actresses’ kids. so it was hard for him. was that why? he was especially greeting people so happily, and it didn’t matter if it was a senior actor/actress, a staff, or director he was so polite and full of manners. he had such deep thoughts unlike his age and i thought he was really nice.”
“i don’t know since when but from a certain time, i was in the middle range (within age). there’s a lot of times when i naturally focus on the atmosphere of the set and if there are any rude juniors i tell them off. if jinyoung was rude, i would have told him off too. this is kind of a joke but i wouldn’t let him be. but there was no reason for me to be like that to him (laughs).”
“jinyoung is the leader of b1a4. he really is multi-talented. he is good at acting, smart, and has such deep thoughts. i heard that he produced the title song himself. i didn’t know he was that popular but when i looked him up, he is a really smart kid. it depends on how much i know b1a4 or not to say how much i know idols or not, but i think because there was this smart and multi-talented person in b1a4 they became popular in comparison to their debut date. i think he is very polite and knows how to work hard in various fields so i like him a lot. i hope i can be in another work with him soon.”
