Q: What is the biggest difference between an idol and a band?
Hongki: We got to have two things, fans as an idol & freedom as a band. There's a lot of cases where idols are restricted. But we don't. We can do whatever we want while performing. I even put up my middle finger during concerts. There is no performance or dance moves that we have to follow so we can run around screaming if I get excited. I don't know what's the point of doing music if there were restrictions to everything. We have to date or do bad stuff at times to gain more experience and do music. Will I be able to sing a song well without understanding the feeling about the song?
