Q: What was the reason that made you want to become a singer?
V: In my 6th year of elementary school…
Suga: In my 5th year of elementary school…
Jimin: Let’s speak one by one.
Jungkook: For me it’s 1st year of middle school.
Suga: It was around my 5th year of elementary school when Stony Skunk released their 2nd album. I wasn’t into music at that time but one day I was watching a music program and got totally amazed by Stony Skunk’s performance. They completely dominated the stage with a free spirit… I fell in love with that performance for a while and then after I listened to Epik High’s ‘Fly’, I thought “Ah, I have to rap.” I wanted to get into hip hop more so I started composing as well. It was like something I had to do. I think I have never changed my dream.
Jin: When I was in 1st year of middle school, I was chatting with my friends and we just said “I’m gonna be a singer!” very vaguely. At that time I just thought of being a cool singer, without any plan. “I want to make this vague dream come true. It’s a cool dream.”
J-hope: When I was younger I stood out quite peculiarly at school. At places like talent shows.
Rap Monster: Yeah, there’s no way you can’t stand out.
J-hope: Whenever I participate in things like talent shows, my friends would push me to the front to dance, it felt really good dancing in front of many people.
Jimin: All~ stage
J-hope: Those experiences made me think “Ah, I really have to learn dancing”, so I started searching for videos and learned dancing for real. I looked at singers who sing and dance at the same time and found them cool. So I wanted to become one myself.
Jimin: I started my singer dream from dancing too.
Rap Monster: Back in my 1st year of middle school, I really liked music so I just had this vague thought “I want to make music”. But around the 2nd year of middle school, I went to Hongdae and saw some hyungs rapping there, and they were really cool. I thought “I want to make music like that too” and started nurturing my music dream.
Suga:(looking at V) And you?
V: I’m like Hobi-hyung too. You know there are kids who always stay quiet at school but would stand out when there’s a festival around.
Rap Monster: Seems like you were one of those kids.
V: I would stand out whenever there’s a festival, but it’s thanks to Big Bang’s Daesung-sunbaenim’s ‘Look At Me Gwisoon’ that I gained my popularity in 6th year of elementary school.
Rap Monster: That was your debut stage.
V: Yeah, so I got quite big in Geochang.
Rap Monster: Geochang’s specialty!
J-hope: So it’s ‘Look At Me Taehyung’.
V: After that I was praised as the ‘characters of festivals’. But my popularity started slowly slipping down from middle school, so I thought “Ah, what I can do well is standing on the stage!!” and told my dad. So my dad…
Suga: I think I heard the next part over 100 times.
J-hope: Does your saxophone story have no ending?
V: Why do you say saxophone! I haven’t even mentioned saxophone yet!
Suga: Next your father will say “Shouldn’t you know how to play at least one instrument?” and so you started learning saxophone.
V: Ah yes…
Jin: You just need to talk up until that part.
Suga: That part is the reason why you wanted to become a singer.
Rap Monster: You just need to talk about your determination of being a singer.
Jin: Ah, saxophone! (laughs)
V: But I haven’t! Even! Brought up the word “saxophone” yet. I haven’t brought up it yet.
J-hope: You can talk about why you learned saxophone in any question.
Rap Monster: He suddenly went from talking about festivals to the instrument thing (ㅋㅋㅋ) What about Jungkook?
Jungkook: I joined a B-boying club in middle school and started learning then. But my parents said I wasn’t tall and told me not to learn it.
J-hope: That’s right, they said that a lot.
Jungkook: So I stopped with B-boying and started on my own by searching for choreography videos, then I saw Big Bang’s G-dragon-sunbaenim and thought “Ah! This is it!”, after that I started dreaming of becoming a singer.
Q: Do you come across the hip hop genre from the beginning? What got you start making music?
Suga: My dream was “I want to make good music and let many people hear it” from the beginning, I listened to various kinds of music and took hip hop as my base.
Rap Monster: I think I started with the mindset of “Let’s make my music” without caring about genres. Hip hop is good, but even if it’s not hip hop, I want to show Kim Namjoon’s sincerity with any genre. I hated making insincere music, you know.
J-hope: Hmh… I started with dancing so I came across hip hop quite easily. I thought of hip hop from the beginning already, but after meeting Rap Monster and Suga-hyung, I was influenced directly and grew interest towards hip hop.
V: I have been liking hip hop since I was little.
Jin: I started having interest in hip hop after I became a trainee, every week Rapmon would give me a recommended song list, you remember that? (looking at Rap Monster) I listened to it every single day~ As I listened to it I started growing interest towards hip hop.
Suga: Yeah, Rapmon had it hard.
J-hope: Training time!
Jimin: At first I just wanted to become a singer without any plan at all, but I got a lot of help from the hyungs. They told me about genres and recommended me songs so I could get it easily, I listened to it and found it fun. That’s why I could have interest in hip hop.
Jungkook: I can talk about it now but honestly it was hard for me.
J-hope: Yeah. It was really hard for Jungkook at first when he came across hip hop.
Rap Monster: That’s right. Passion is not something that can be forced.
Jungkook: At first I kept listening to it and kept trying, but it was hard.
Jimin: Yeah, we talked about it a lot back then.
Suga: Why was it?
Jimin: One day Jungkook suddenly said “Hyung, I don’t know.” He said it was too difficult.
Suga: So we recommended him other genres besides hip hop. We told him “Just listen to music”.
V: That’s right. Hyungs picked a lot of lists for me. Especially Rapmon-hyung gave me a lot.
Rap Monster: Listening to hip hop helped Jungkook a lot with doing his favorite kind of choreography, so at first I let him listen to R&B a lot as well so he could easily catch it.
J-hope: The biggest thing as Jungkook slowly being introduced to music is his trip to America. (laughs)
