Q: Is there a new style of music that you’d like to try?
Changjo: “A song with a woman that tells a story like a musical like Big Bang Taeyang sunbae-nim did.”
Q: There are a lot of members of Teen Top who like Big Bang, right?
Changjo: “We like them a lot. If you asked us to pick a senior artist that we really admire, most of us would pick Big Bang. Before we shoot a music video, we try to immitate the gestures and expressions that they do. The angles that Taeyang sunbae-nim makes while dancing, and even the way he moves his mouth while wearing sunglasses.”
Q: What do have a big interest in these days?
Changjo: “Skateboarding. We saw the dancer hyungs riding them and it looked fun so we started to also. This is one thing we didn’t copy BIGBANG at. Don’t misunderstand (laughs).
Q: You are a fan of Big Bang too, right?
Ricky: “Yes, I watch a lot of T.O.P sunbae-nim’s stuff (acting). There is an expression he makes while closing his eyes and it’s really handsome, so I saved the picture on my iPad. He is handsome and good at everything.”
