【Non-No Magazine January 2018】 100 answers from BTS - SUGA’s part

Q57: If you had to describe yourself as a color?
A: Blue. I’ve always liked blue and I think the color suits me. My soul will become clear when I look at blue and my mind will get clear too. That’s why I picked blue.

Q58: When you contact people, do you call or text? 
A: I don’t like calling people, so I’ve gradually stopped calling. I don’t even call for 10 minutes (in total) in a month. Texting is easier.  

Q59: Would you eat something you like first or last?
A: It’s all gone before I even think about it (laughs). I don’t eat it first but eat it a bit later. 

Q66: The first song you made in your life? 
A: When I was self-studying at 13 years old, I think it counts as hip-hip genre.  

Q67: Your favorite time of the day?
A: The moment I fall asleep. I feel calm, sometimes I feel happy to get into bed. 

Q68: When you’re producing music, what method do you use to relax?
A: Play computer games, scroll through my phone and drink my favorite coffee. 

Q69: What’s your preference when comes to drinking coffee? 
A: Firstly, I don’t like sweet things so I don’t add in sugar. Secondly, I like the scent of coffee bean, I don’t add anything and just drink black coffee. Especially, I love to drink in my studio (laughs). Also, don’t you think it’s delicious when you drink coffee after you’ve brushed your teeth (laughs). 

Q70: Your favorite hairstyle/color out of the ones you’ve tried so far?
A: In terms of color, I like black the most (laughs). I like the original color. 

Q71: Your favorite lyrics in BTS song? 
A: ‘FIRE’. I can relate to the lyrics “it’s okay to lose”. 

Q72: The treasure that you cherish? 
A: The equipments and systems in my studio. And the watch that I love to use. I bought it when I was in primary school with the intention of working hard in the path of music. When I’m producing music, I always have it with me to remind myself of my original intention.

Q73: Recently you shed tears because of?
A: I wouldn’t cry because the changes in emotion/feeling. Um… I shed tears when I was yawning 10 minutes ago (laughs). 

Q74: If you had a free day in Japan, how would you spend it? 
A: I want to go look at the whiskey distillery! My favourite author Haruki Murakami loves to drink whiskey, the author even wrote a book based on whiskey (If Our Language was Whiskey). So, I’m really interested.

Q75: The moment you feel the bond between members?
A: When we’re resting and playing the strategy game together, that was popular ages ago. Although I’m not good at games but playing with so many people makes me happy. 

Q76: Recently, who do you think is cute? 
A: Jungkook. I think he’s cute because as the youngest member, he’s gradually becoming an adult. He was still a middle schooler when I first met him. When he was being interviewed at the time, he couldn’t even organize his thoughts. Now he can answer questions without a problem, I think that’s unbelievable.

SUGA’s answers

Q1: Hobbies or things you’ve been into to spend your days off? 
A1: When I have days off, I want to do those so-called ‘ordinary’ things. Such as going to a cafe by myself, meeting up with friends. Having an ordinary daily life is very important to me. I won’t do anything special just because I’m on my days off. For me, spending my days off while relaxing is more important.

Q2: Tell us your preferences and tastes in fashion! 
A2: Rather than getting different types of clothes, I’m the type that if I like or love something, I’ll use it for a long time. Since debut, because of my job, I’ve been wearing a lot of expensive clothes and clothes that I like. But I want to become one that can have their own style even when wearing simple clothes, so now I just choose simple clothes. Also, I don’t like to expose so I wear long sleeves even in the summer. 

Q3: Your favorite scent?
A3: For cologne, I like sweet scents. Depending on my mood on that day, occasionally I’ll use a bit. But I haven’t finished using one bottle yet. Since I really like to drink coffee, it makes me feel calm when I smell the aroma of coffee. To me, coffee is like a substitute of water, it’s indispensable.

Q4: Any Japanese film, drama, manga or other works that you like?
A4: My all-time favorite manga is ‘Slam Dunk’! It’s my favorite so I read it over again and again, I’ve read it for over 100 times. Most of the anime that I’ve watched when I was little, are Japanese anime.

SUGA is…

From JIN: He’s interested in clothes, furnitures and miscellaneous goods, but when he’s shopping, he’ll only buy equipment that’s related to music. As his roommate, only I know about this, it’s my treasured information. ♪

From V: Recently, Suga hyung is really interested in Japanese. I’ve seen him studying Japanese diligently. Also, I feel that the things Suga hyung talks about and the atmosphere became more interesting than before (laughs).

「MUSIC」

Encountered rap around when I was in primary school and began to get involved in making music. I’m still active and continuing to produce music. For someone boring like me, the only thing I can do is to make music, it can’t be separated from me.   

「POSSIBILITY」

In the past I would look for answers either 0 or 100. For example, why do some people don’t like me? I worried about these things and I also showed my emotions on my face. But after I’ve accumulated a various of experiences, I could understand better about people’s sensitivity and values. I thought “people could have various of thoughts”, and I began to think that I want to open every possibility for myself.

「GRANDPA」

It’s a word that describes me (laughs). Since I rarely step forward (voluntarily), I’m discreet, quiet and I like to be alone. I don’t like to move around and I like to lie down.

JUNGKOOK

JUNGKOOK’s answers

Q1: Hobbies or things you’ve been into to spend your days off? 
A1: Recently, I’ve been playing FPS (a type of shooting game) for fun. I play for 3 ~ 4 hours every day, I don’t even have time to sleep (laughs). And, I also listen to music. I like to listen to future bass (genre’s) music, I prefer tunes which has somewhat a sad atmosphere and makes me feel calm.

Q2: Tell us your preferences and tastes in fashion! 
A2: I like baggy clothes like hoodies, and I like the color black. Even in the summer, I haven’t really changed my style. Although everyone has their own style, I think Rap Monster hyung and J-Hope hyung’s style really suits them, very cool.

Q3: Your favorite scent?
A3: I like the scent of the gentle breeze and green when spring arrives. Once upon a spring day, Rap Monster hyung, V hyung and I were riding (on bikes) along the river while listening to music. When I smell the unique scent of spring, it’ll remind of that day and, that makes my heart beat and makes me feel happy.

Q4: Any Japanese film, drama, manga or other works that you like?
A4: I really like Japanese anime. Especially ‘Haikyu!!’, Jin hyung also likes it. It’s useful for us to learn Japanese!

JUNGKOOK is…

From J-HOPE: He strongly desires to advance in music and dance. Occasionally, he also shows off his cute side as a maknae. He’s tall, so he uses a lot of physical strength to embrace/ hold me (when messing around). But thanks to that, I could fall asleep easily (laughs).

From JIMIN: Maknae has been working hard more than anyone else since he was young. He’s the same age as my younger brother so I often take care of him. I don’t know when I started to see him as my young brother. Whatever he’s doing, he’s cute.

「PASSION」

I’m the type that when I want to do something, I’d feel strongly to accomplish it and be absorbed in it immediately! Now, I’m passionate about making music and I’m studying about it. But I’ve still got a long way to go (to release something). I want to challenge the things that I’m interested in, and I’ll think about whether it’ll work out or not later. That’s my personality.

「GOURMET」

I love to eat! Especially meat, I like to eat chicken the most. Also, the food in Japan’s convenience store is my favorite too. When I go to Japan, I’m just curious of where the convenience stores are (laughs). If I travel to Japan in private, it seems that I’ll go there many times!

「SLEEP」

I also love to sleep. I’ve been into playing video games, so I’ve cut down my sleeping time. To that extent, if there’s little time such as in a moving car, I’ll just doze off.

Persona 20th anniversary things! The magazine has sections for each game in the series (including spin offs), interviews, exclusive artwork, and excerpts from the p3 and p5 manga. It came with the file and reversible poster. I got the stickers and keychain separately.

anonymous asked:

Have you seen that Japanese magazine interview talking about what they like in a girl? They were asked whether they like darker skin or lighter skin and people are kind of offended by some of their answers. I just wanted to know your thoughts on that. Personally as a biracial girl I'm not THAT hurt but that's just me.

To be honest, I had to look this up since I don’t follow a lot of people on Twitter…But, I’m going to give you my opinion.

I want to start off with establishing that many Japanese magazines publish information about BTS that are just “guesses” or “observations” about BTS. They “research” BTS and then publish articles about BTS as if they had interviewed them. I don’t remember what magazine these translations were from, but it is most likely that this “interview” is not actually an “interview.” I’m stating this with confidence because this happened last September with a Japanese magazine called K-POP TOP IDOLS. They released a lot of iffy information formatted as if they had interviewed BTS, but it was not actually an interview and was just observations. You can read my notice about them here

I can only draw comparisons to trash magazines you see on the rack as you walk to the checkout in a supermarket in America. There are always bogus headlines or columns. If you know some American magazines, this might put things into perspective. Perhaps you could even compare this to “clickbait.” Considering BTS’ popularity, magazines are doing anything they can to be sold. If ARMYs see ‘BTS’ they are likely to buy it.

In my experience, it is best not to trust magazines that do not actually have an official photoshoot with BTS or state EXPLICITLY that they had interviewed BTS. To my knowledge, this magazine did not state anywhere that they had interviewed BTS nor did they have photos with BTS. 

I hope that this helped.
