(TRANS) Bangtan Boys on Junon July 2014 Magazine Interview
Rap Monster Q: What do you think your personality is like? A: I look reliable but there are still times when I feel confused/lost.
Q: What do you collect? A: Since I like it, I have a lot of Supreme clothes. But there’s no stores in Korea so I buy it all online from overseas.
Q: What’s the one thing you won’t lose to others? A: My rap and voice doesn’t lose to anyone! Also, gentle personality (laughs).
Q: What’s the origin of the name “Rap Monster”? A: Predebut I always wrote “Rap Monster” when I was writing lyrics. I don’t know how but it became my nickname so I just used it when I debut.
Q: When did you realize you wanted to become an artist? A: I always listened to Eminem’s songs when I was in junior high. I wanted to use music to express my thoughts. The reason I wanted to rap was because I didn’t want to be bound by the melody but rather to freely express my thoughts.
Q: What’s hard about being a leader? A: At work there may be unexpected things that happen and I have to calmly lead the members. There’s always this kind of stress.
