EU: MYNAME has debuted for a year, are there any moments that has an important meaning?
MN: From the day of our debut, we had many tough times. We’re together for pretty long now and we always practice till late at night everyday. After debuting for a year, we changed a lot and matured. Not only for a year, for the next 2-3 years, this is very important.
EU: Are there any targets for the future?
MN: Firstly in Korea, we hope that for our events, we could do the best and get first. We hope to go to China as well and hold events there.
EU: On the topic of China, what do you first think of it?
Insoo: About 10 years ago when I was 16 years old, I went to China. It’s true! I went to the Great Wall of China. There’s nothing as vast as that place.
Seyong: I went to China when I was in high school. China’s Qingdao. High school is good.
Gunwoo: If I were to mention China, it must be the Olympics. They did well in the Beijing Olympics.
Chaejin: There are a lot of figurines which are made like humans like the terracotta warriors. That’s amazing.
EU: All the members live together right? So how do you guys assign the housework?
Seyong: We each have a role at home. Chaejin and I clean the bedrooms.
Insoo: We also live with our manager. But our manager doesn’t do the housework, so we have to do it.
Seyong: Say something to our manager.
Insoo: We’re very envious.
Seyong: Chaejin and I will clean the bedrooms, JunQ and Insoo hyung will wash the toilet and our leader Gunwoo will clean the rest of the house.
EU: Recently, we realized that you guys have been changing your hairstyles pretty often. Are you all very fashion-conscious? Till now, which is your favourite hairstyle?
Gunwoo: Yes, I’m very fashion-conscious and always think of changing hairstyles. Because of that, our hairstylists are always very stressed. I really like the hairstyle I had during “Hello & Goodbye” promotions. When I see the monitor during the filming of the MV, I really liked that hairstyle.
EU: Insoo loves to work out. Let’s talk about your muscles.
Insoo: This is a difficult question.
Seyong: Isn’t it all meat? Insoo’s meat is all muscles.
EU: JunQ’s rap is good, we heard that he’s also writing lyrics. When could we hear them?
JunQ: I’m practicing very hard, when there’s chance next time, I will show it to everyone and will continue to work and practice hard.
EU: A lot of fans find that Seyong is very handsome and is also image-conscious. Do you always look into the mirror?
Seyong: Yes, I’m image-conscious. But it’s Gunwoo who always looks at the mirror.
EU: Because Chaejin is the maknae, do the hyungs always ask you to do things?
Chaejin: It’s Gunwoo who always asks me to do things haha. After practice and at home, everyone will start to ask me to do things.
