Q: What kind of child were you?

T.K: I was filial and obeyed what my parents said.
Siwoo: I was the opposite and liked to play, skipped after-school classes, and just made my parents worry all the time.

Q: What do you think you would be doing if you didn’t become a singer?
Ray: Before I became an idol, I only played football so I think I probably would have become a football player.
Maru: The president! (Laughs)
Kang Jun: I studied drawing so I hoped to design cars.
T.K: I have an interest in volunteer work so maybe something to do with that, or being an actor.
Siwoo: Obviously I’d be a public official who earns lots of money.
Rome: I enjoy making videos so I think I would be working as someone involved with videos.

Q: What is one anecdote from your 2014 promotions that you remember?
Ray: Once, during a festival, we were scheduled to perform three songs. However, the group who was to perform after us didn’t show up so we got to perform six songs instead. It was quite thrilling, but also a good experience.

Q: If you had free time to spend in Japan, where would you want to go?
Kang Jun: I want to go shopping in Ginza* during a sale.
*Ginza is known as an upscale area of Tokyo with numerous department stores, boutiques, restaurants and coffee houses. It is recognized as one of the the most luxurious shopping districts in the world.
Maru: I really love bowling. The price to bowl is a lot cheaper in Japan than in Korea so I would just want to go and bowl to my heart’s content.
T.K: I want to go to the Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios!

Q: If you could be another member for a day, who would it be?
Maru: I’d pick Ray. He’s cool and good at composing, and is really passionate about his work. I tend to admire guys like Ray-hyung.
Kang Jun: I’d pick Rome because he’s popular and everyone depends on him. If I became Rome, I could also receive that kind of treatment. (Laughs)
Rome: I’d pick Maru! I envy that he’s still a teenager. When we get back late in the evening my body is completely exhausted, whereas Maru who’s seven years younger is still full of energy.
T.K: I’d pick Siwoo. I’ve never seen him get angry. I want to learn how to emulate his good heart and be patient when the other members get angry.

Q: Is there anything you want to challenge as C-CLOWN in the future or any goals you might have for the future?
Kang Jun: I want to have a concert at the Tokyo Dome!
Maru: I want to do performances in countries that aren’t familiar with K-POP and introduce C-CLOWN and K-POP to them.
Ray: I want to try getting on the Billboard charts!
Rome: I want to make a promotional video for a song that Ray composes and be the first idols to ever attempt anything like that.
T.K: That’s a great idea! I want to solidify our foundation in South Korea and hold performances in the United States like PSY or the WONDER GIRLS did.
Siwoo: I want for us to hold our own concert in South Korea.

Q: Please tell us our plans for the future.
T.K: We plan to have a comeback in South Korea at the end of 2014 or beginning of 2015. We want to make an album that not only we’d be satisfied with, but our fans would be happy with too.

im not really good with knowing how to “politely" deal with micro-aggressions i feel like, I’m constantly having to  call shit out all the time, it gets exhausting.

like tonight, we were at a bar drinking and some racist shit came up on the bar telly and I said "why is he imitating black people, that’s kind of offensive to me” and some white boy (of fucking course) chimes in with “well I’m not offended” and I clapped back with a “well you’re not fucking black so does it matter what you think?” and then everything was awkward and it’s like well idk maybe if you think you’re friends might be even like 0.932% racist you probably shouldn’t bring them around me if you want everyone to have a good time because I guarantee you if some shit comes up I will make everyone as uncomfortable as I am and I refuse to censor myself for anyone's convenience. I rather everyone feel awkward as hell than let shit like that slide.

It even came down to us doing karaoke and singing Lil’ Wayne up on stage with one of my friends roommates,  I was almost praying that he would recite the word “Nigga” off the screen so I could deck him in his grill right up on stage, like I can’t turn this shit off and I’m not sorry about it neither.

How do you guys deal with micro aggressions? because I have only one dial and “it’s pop the fuck off” and maybe that might not be the most efficient way? but it’s the only one I fucking know.
