Hello everyone, I’m the rapper in B.A.P, and I do aegyos a lot.
I had once want to be a soccer player before; however, I lost my interest in soccer and started to rap.
I like smart girl, especially good at English.
There r lots of B.A.P’s fans in Japan as well, do u hav any plans going to Japan? If u had the chance, where will u go? What will u do in Japan?
ZELO: All of the members really want to go to Japan. there r lots of fans from Japan come to see us, we r all very thankful for the support. I want to go to Harajuku, and I also want to walk on the streets in Shibuya.
Hav heard any thing from Secret of their events in Japan?
ZELO: Although we havn’t heard any thing from them, when we saw them coming back from JP, we were all very jealous. We really want to go to Japan as soon as possible.
The youngest usually treated as….
ZELO: ‘Cuz I’m the youngest in the team, the older brothers r all bein’ very nice to me, and this makes me very happy. Well… they do tease me oftenly though.(LOL) I always utter nonsense words in my sleep; the older brothers also reply me in their dreams. These amazing things happens a lot in our dorm. We r very close to each other, and this is our strong bond.
Is there any intersting things?
ZELO: While we were shootin’ for our teaser, we had to soak in the water with green paint; because the paint can’t be wash out, so we had to wear in the same boots while shooting. However, the amazing thing is that we realized that we are wearing the same size of shoes.(LOL)
BANG: Our new album includes 4 songs. Title song ‘POWER’ is a kind of ‘Hard Core Hip Hop’ song; by mixing the strong tone n’ low rap toghther, to create a totally different song. It is much more stronger than ‘WARRIOR’.
Pls tell us about your style concept.
Young Jae: For the first album ‘WARRIOR’, the main point of our style concept is to tell everyone that we r ‘B.A.P’. This time, we’d like to let our own personality come out a little more, therefore, we chosed to make our own different styles. Leader, Young Guk’s hair is purple n’ black; Him Chan has short black hair; Dae Hyun’s hair is in gray; jong Up has auburn hair; our youngest one, ZELO, has his pink hair which looks very fit on him. About me, although I’m still having my golden hair, I make it shorter and my style looks fresher.
Tell us about some interesting episods while you were shooting your mv.
ZELO: While we were shooting for our teaser, we had to soak in the water with green paint; because the paint can’t be wash out, so we had to wear in the same boots while shooting. However, the amazing thing is that we realized that we are wearing the same size of shoes.(LOL)
What do B.A.P members mostly do while you’re in the waiting room?
BANG: We often watch our videos which we performed on stage. Sometimes we will watch the other artists’ performences or listen to our music.
Who is the quietest member at the moment before standing on stage? Who is the noisiest?
ZELO: I think Young Guk hyung is the quietest person. He has to prepare for the emotion of getting angry on stage.(LOL)
Jong Up: And speaking of the noisiest person will be ZELO! He dances all the way till we stand on stage, and he likes to running around.
Who is the sleepyhead? Who wakes the sleepyhead up?
Dae Hyun: ZELO is our youngest member, he often waits the other member for shower so he sleeps very late; therefore, we wakes up late. Moreover, ‘cause ZELO’s in his stage of growing his body, I think he needs a lot of sleep.
Young Jae: Dae Hyun is the one who wakes up first. He’ll wake everybody up.
Who has the reaction like alien?
Dae Hyun: I think it’ll be ZELO. Because ZELO’s still very young, he can’t understand the situations sometimes. He might say something that is not related to the conversation.(LOL)
At present, what we supposed to do is to try our best in every thing we should do.
Being in love? I think not.
B.A.P has the image of strong and powerful to many babies.
From the oldest two members, Bang and Himchan, to the youngest member, Zelo;
they are all full of charisma, especially the youngust one, Zelo.
Athough Zelo is only in his 17, he always plays very well in his roll, being a great and powerful rapper.
However, when B.A.P’s off the stage, they are all very cute and smiling.
It’s been a while since last CB. How are you guys doin’?
Bang: We’re quite good! We’ve been practicing hard in order to meet our fans earlier.
Your Music Video is soooo cool! Is there any episode while shooting your MV?
Z: Umm… It was awful exhausted. We soaked in the green paint water, and the paint are all over our bodies and it has made our skins into a very bad condition… also, the music video started at midnight… therefore, we had to wear our wet shoes till morning.
Himchan: I’m the last one to shoot my music video, I didn’t feel that exhausted…(LOL)
Your music video is in a huge scale, I think the costs must have been a lot as well…
Bang: Yes, it is. Our music video cost about hundreds of millions I think. The staffs spent for over three months to accomplish the spaceship. It was just like the Hollywood movie, it was sooooo much fun!
Dis you guys got any hurts?
Bang: Of course we did! The make-ups costed our skins a lot trouble… and there was a kicking part in our dance, I was kicked by Zelo and my face bled…
Zelo: I am soooo sorry about that… I didn’t mean it!
Bang: It’s ok, I understand (smiles). Moreover, the green paints are still on our bodies, and we don’t know any way to get rid of it… also, our bodies hurts a lot because of the violent dances…
It seems to be a very hard shooting experience…. isn’t there any funny episods (LOL)?
Daehyung: The music vedio took place by the beach where there are no toilets, so we didn’t release ourselves for many hours… However, I had finally run under to the bridge and used the toilet; while I was enjoying my pee time, there was some soldiers sitting in a car and moved toward me and said hello… I hope only if they didn’t see any thing…(LOL)
In your busy schedules, you have no time to meet your parants, right?
Jongup: Yes, that’s ture… But I had once secretly went back home and my family was really shocked by me; my older brother even thought I am a thief (LOL).
Himchan: I had the same experience as well. My mom screamed out loud and my father seemed to be a little angry of getting shocked by me (LOL).
I believe that getting great improvements on your album will be the best repay for your families, right?
Youngjae: Yes. We do work very very hard everyday in order to achieve our goals. Being in love? I think not. At present, we only do what we supposed to do and try our best in every thing we do.
Comin’ Back with their Second New Mini Album《Power》, B.A.P had an interview with us at HanryuPIA.net.

This is the second time of B.A.P’s appearance in ‘HanryuPIA’. The first time we got an interview with B.A.P is on February, right after their debut. This time, they had come back with their Second new Mini Album《Power》and their hair styles and color had changed a lot! B.A.P’s interview with ‘HanryuPIA’ in Seoul is comin’ right up.
<Photo shootin’ of the Warrior Style B.A.P! Charisma MAX!>
We had the interview in the evening; the six boys stay powerfully even the time is kinda late. Himchan greeted us by using Japanese sayin’, “Long time no see, how r u?”. The six boys ate all of the snacks which we brought from Japan for them. “They didn’t have dinner yet, did they?” the manager answered a “yes”. (Poor little guys…) Then, we decided to order some food from takeaway. What did the boys ate? And who helped to order food? Pls look out for the answers in our ‘HanryuPIA’ magazine!
<Checkin’ on the monitor, Himchan!>
The new serialize in ‘HanryuPIA’ of B.A.P is goin’ to be a ‘Q&A’ of each member to the other members. The FIRST two members are… Our B.A.P’s “Mangnae LINE”!!!
<These r the two in a cutie fashion look…>
There will be sth. else for the other members. Something like missions…↓

Q. Who is the mood maker within the members?

Z: While I’m reading some articles from Twitter and fan letters.
Q. Compares to the other members, u have debut in a younger age; what is the nice part and the bad part of being so young for debut?
Z: I think the nice part is that I’ve divine my dream earlier than others; the bad part is that I am still way too young to perform maturely, therefore, I’ve heard lots of ‘Zelo’s cute’ comments than ‘Zelo’s cool’. If only I were grown up a little bit more…
Q. Zelo’s now seventeen, I believe that there’s still a lot of things what teenagers desires to do; how did Zelo overcome these kinda desires?
