[INTERVIEW] June 2012 Edition of Inkigayo Magazine - Baro’s Interview
What are you doing?
Were you still not sleeping?
What are you doing awake?
I just finished showering and laid down to sleep
Ahoo, the other members are all sleeping
I can’t make be loud, need to be quiet
I don’t have anything special to do tomorrow
Okay, then I’ll call you first tomorrow. See you tomorrow
Sleep well and have a good dream
Sleep well baby, I’ll see you tomorrow
If there are, what are Baro’s new charms that you want to appeal through ‘Baby Goodnight’?
Our stages up until now have been cheerful and really hectic. Since our mood is up. This time, I want to appeal with a charm that leads parts like picking up and putting down hearts of females with a somewhat calm and comfortable feel. (I.M: Instead of leading them, it smells somewhat like the true scent of casanova?) That’s definitely not it.
What’s the role that Baro plays in the music video’s story?
CNU hyung is the main character, and I’m his best man. Thus, CNU hyung and the best men. CNU hyung and the kids. I believe that it was a great role to help the main character stand out. Hahaha~
Teaser, Big Issue! What’s happening? (Episode)
Truthfully, if you watch my clip, I talk almost as if I were whispering. The reason is that I got a cold and my voice wouldn’t come out. That was as loud as my voice would go. And additionally, the next day was the ‘Dream Concert’, so it was a situation where I couldn’t use my throat at all. While organizing my thoughts about what to do, I decided to go for a concept where I quietly whisper. My throat really hurt at that time, so I worried a lot for the next day’s stage, but thankfully, my voice came back on stage.
If you were to give a grade to the B1A4 member who you think did the best among the teaser videos, how many points would you give? (How many points out of 10 points?)
I still haven’t seen Channie’s clip, but they said that Channie’s was amazing. I also haven’t watched CNU hyung’s and I saw up to Sandeullie’s video, but… I would pick Jinyoungie hyung. And the score would be 9 points. He says it really comfortably to the point where you would almost reply back. I’m even a male and a member, but I almost responded with, ‘Ah, really? Alright, I’ll sleep’. That’s how much attraction there was. He was really cool.
What is something Baro always does before sleeping?
There’s something I always do. Brushing my teeth. That’s a joke. Before I sleep, I always… well not always, but it always changes. Since there are days where I fall asleep while using the computer or watching movies, there are things that I always do like showering or taking out my contact lenses, but specific things change ‘each and every time~’.

Messy sobs for my favorite playful dorks <3
[CAFE] 120423 - Baro’s Cafe Post: “365 Days…”
BANA-yah~!! Are you not sleeping yet?
I can’t fall asleep because today’s a really special dayㅠㅠ
Today is~ April 23rd!!
It’s the day that marks the one year since BANAs and B1A4 met ^^
I feel like time went by so fast to the point
where I’m not sure how this 1 year went by,
but I think they were 365 days
where we made many memories that are very important and unforgettable.
Eum… Now that I’m thinking it over like this~ while sitting in front of the computer,
I think there were a lot of times where we were sorry and thankful to our BANAs.
Starting from April 23rd of last year till now!!
No matter where we went,
be it from far or from near,
thank you so much for always loudly cheering us on and clapping for us ^^
And I think it was possible for us to come all the way here because you guys
always give us advice on things we lack in or need to fix and encourage us.
Thanks to you guys, we were able to get the rookie award that we hoped for.
Thank you so much, BANA!!
Also, our BANAs are~!
the source of B1A4’s strength ㅎㅎ
Whenever we see our BANAs,
we feel full even when we don’t eat,
all our tired feelings fly away,
our hollow eyes come back to life again,
our bent shoulders straighten out,
and our heavy dark circles disappear ^^
To us, BANAs are really something that we can’t function without hehe
Thank you so much for always!! staying by our side and
always~~~~ giving us love.
Don’t forget that there’s always BANAs in our hearts and
BANA and B1A4 !!
Although only 365 days have passed,
let’s continue to go further more and longer~~~~~
forever straight for~~~~~~~~ward!!!
Let’s be together ^^ ♥
I really, really love you and
let’s hold each other’s hands and go through
the many events that will come towards us in the future~!!!
B1A4 ♥ BANA
I’m going to think of BANAs today and dream about BANAs while sleeping~!!

I can’t stop the gross messy sobbing (how have my parents not caught me weeping in the corner of the couch anyway?)
It’s that they love us as much as we love them that really gets to me and really warms my heart and melts me and makes me cry because it’s so overwhelming and DAMMIT I know I’m probably over the top about it all but I don’t regret it because BANA loves B1A4 and B1A4 loves BANA.
/flops all over in a pool of tears

[INTERVIEW] Naver’s March Music Special: B1A4’s First Official Full Length Album [IGNITION]
Naver’s March Music Special: B1A4’s First Official Full Length Album [IGNITION]
The filming scene for the MV and behind the scenes video revealed
Special | B1A4’s First Official Full Length Album [THE B1A4 I (IGNITION)]
B1A4, who received a lot of interest in 2011 with ‘O.K’, ‘Beautiful Target’, ‘Only Learned Bad Things’, and others. B1A4, who foreshadowed this year’s promotions as they won rookie awards at various end of the year awards such as the Seoul Music Awards and Golden Disk Awards, has revealed their first official full length album [THE B1A4 I (IGNITION)].
With the meaning that B1A4’s possibilities as musicians who have improved one step further are starting through their first official full length album [THE B1A4 I (IGNITION)], Jinyoung personally participated in the producing for this album and the members’ own composed songs are in the album, proving their possibilities. The title song, ‘BABY I’M SORRY’, which is composed, written, and produced by Jinyoung, has a intense trance rhythm along with a drum beat and a bass as the base. It has a charming melody that will stay in your head even if you listen to it just once and it’s a song where Jinyoung’s specifically unique composition and touching lyrics stand out.
The behind-the-scenes video along with the B1A4 members’ behind story of their ‘BABY I’M SORRY’ music video filming that’s being released for the first time ever through Naver Music. Let’s meet the members’ thoughts as their new album’s promotions are ahead.
Interview | Each of the Members’ Comeback Photo & the New Album Interview
Q: B1A4, who has returned with their first official full length album! How do you feel on selling a full length album?
Jinyoung: We released two mini albums last year and we’re finally releasing our first official full length album. As much as the love we received last year, it’s an album that we prepared really hard for in order to show a better side of ourselves. It’s a little burdening thinking that if the last album was an album that B1A4 was showing to our fans for the first time, this time we needed to show more people B1A4’s music and color and receive love from them as well. However, just as much as many people have been anticipating it, we prepared a lot in order to show a good side of ourselves, so I believe many people will give us love.
CNU: Because the title song for this album was not only personally composed and written by Jinyoung, but also produced by him, I think Jinyoung is receiving a bit more burden. Also, because Baro and I participated in the composing and writing of another song, and not just Jinyoung, it’s an album that I feel more affection for. It’s an album that we did our best on and because it’s also an album that the members worked on while sharing many stories and enjoyed doing, I don’t have any regrets. Since we worked hard in order to show the various music colors of B1A4 such as R&B, Pop, Hip-hop, Urban, and Ballads, please love it a lot. We will show an amazing side of us on stage just as much as we prepared hard for it.
Baro: Although I am nervous and worried as well, I’m really happy and my heart is nervous when I think of how we’re going to be standing on stage after a long time. We prepared a lot and since we worked hard in order to show a more matured look, everyone should anticipate it as well.
Q: Please introduce your title song, ‘BABY I’M SORRY’. And it would be better if you could point out the enjoyable points as well.
Sandeul: Our title song, ‘BABY I’M SORRY’, is a song that Jinyoung hyung personally wrote, composed, and produced. It’s a song with a twist because it starts out at first with an intense trance rhythm with a drum beat base and then during the middle part, it changes to an exciting melody. After finishing the song, Jinyoung hyung let me listen to it first. I remember when I first heard it, the song was so good that hyung and I went to the studio that day and made a guide during the middle of the night. You will know if you listened to the song, but it’s a charming song where you’ll automatically sing along after only listening to it once. When you listen to the song’s unique points, you will probably find yourself singing along with the chorus. Saying ‘BABY I’M SORRY~’ too~ ^^
Gongchan: If I were to pick out the differences in this song from our past songs, I would say that our way of expressing love to a girl has changed. In the past, if we just said we liked the girl and confessed to her, we’re now having farewells and I think that our confessing methods in asking her to come back have become a bit more mature. If in the past, we had the young feelings of someone in their 10’s, I think I’ll say that our love story has become a bit more mature since the members are now all in their 20’s? ^^
Jinyoung: I think in this song, it would be good to anticipate different performance on stage. We put an effort in trying to liven up each and every feeling in the song such as the beginning’s fierce trance rhythm to the catchy chorus with rock as the base. You will receive a different feeling from our past stages so please look forward to it a lot.
Q: The members’ solo songs in this album caught my attention, so please introduce them.
Baro: My first solo song, ‘Just The Two of Us’, is the first time I participated in not only the lyrics, but the composition of the song as well. Because it’s my first solo song, I thought a lot about what color I should show. Many people would think it’s a love story by just looking at the title, but if you listen to it, the lyrics are very sad. It’s a song that expresses the thoughts of a male and female who are growing tired of each other and have their break-up right ahead of them. I believe that there will be many people who will agree with this song if they have dated before. Also, Miss A’s Min senior participated in the featuring for this. I think that Min senior’s thin but controlled voice expressed the feeling of the song better. We started recording as soon as we met in the recording studio, so I was so nervous and tense that I couldn’t look at her face. I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to Min senior.
Sandeul: I also sang a song called ‘Crush’. After receiving the guide for the first time, it was a song style that I really liked so my heart was beating. After that, I would continue to listen to the song and think a lot about how I would express the feelings of a crush. If I had a crush on someone for a really long time, how would I confess? After thinking that, I think singing about those emotions in a calm manner touched my heart a bit more. So I didn’t stop my emotions at the recording studio and after singing it in a calm and light mood, I think the song was expressed a bit more sadly.
Q: Is there an episode you remember during the music video filmings?
CNU: Each of the members recorded a flashback scene with the female lead. Baro started off filming with the girl first, but there was skinship involved since it was an affectionate scene. But Baro couldn’t even look into her eyes. While we were monitoring it, we were giving him advice like to pinch her cheeks, stroke her hair, but he didn’t know what to do. But after filming a couple of times, it was like nothing ever happened because he was doing so well and we were all surprised.
Sandeul: The female lead was a model. Along with being tall, she wore heels on top of that so because of the height difference, I had to sit down and film. ㅜㅜ
Baro: Also, you will be able to see CNU hyung’s crying acting during this music video. As soon as the cue sign was given, he was immersed into his emotions so well and at the sight of him tearing while crying out loud, all the staff members clapped once the filming was over. Look forward to CNU hyung’s tearing acting while he cries out loud.
Q: Please tell us your plans on future promotions and give a word for the fans.
Jinyoung: We just started promotions for our first full length album, but we plan to put an effort in letting more people know about B1A4’s music and color so please anticipate it a lot. And to our fans, who love us, we will show you an amazing stage so that you will be able to say ‘as expected of B1A4’, so please support us a lot and watch over us.
CNU: We put a lot of effort in showing a more mature side to ourselves than the past, so we ask for a lot of love. And we plan to meet everyone for awhile through the TV, radios, open broadcasts, and fansignings so please anticipate it a lot. Let’s Fly B1A4! Thank you.
