PostSubject: 2ne1's Interview with 10asia   Sun Aug 09, 2009 11:04 am



10asia (10): As soon as ďI Donít CareĒ was released, the response was very favourable.
CL: Our practice time is getting longer [nowadays]. Weíre focusing on practice because we figured expectations be raised after ďI Donít CareĒ.

10: It is known that even during your activities [following a release], thereís a lot of rehearsal time and not many stage schedules. Donít you want to do more [public] activities?
CL: Weíre still lacking in practice time. Because we spent several years only in a practice room, it feels odd if we donít practice.

10: Does the company (YG Entertainment) make you practice that much? (Laughs.)
CL: We feel the need to. There are times when we forget everything that we practiced and just play on stage, [but] then mess up the choreography.

10: The stage must be enjoyable for you.
CL: Itís fun. Because you lose your mind a little when the music comes on.
All: Hahahahahaha.
Dara: Itís most nerve-wracking right before going up on stage.
Minzy: I donít have a lot of stage experience yet so itís amazing.

10: What advice do the unnis (older girls) give Minzy.
CL: Weíre not in the position to give advice either. (Laughs.)
Minzy: They say letís work hard together.

10: Minzy begins the first part of ďI Donít CareĒ. You must have felt a sense of responsibility about the opening.
Minzy: There was a bit of that. Because if the first button is threaded well, everything [else] falls into place (Korean idiom).

10: You just used a teen girlís voice rather than a unique way of singing [in that song]. What was the reason for that direction?
Minzy: I just let out the voice that I have. Since my actual voice is young.

10: How do you understand the lyrics to ďI Donít CareĒ?
Minzy: It is extremely difficult. I try to get pull it out by imagining what I can. Watching dramas with my mom when I was young helped too.
CL: Itís a song that can be a warning message from girls to guys; itís also a song that can be advice from girls to girls. Thatís why we tried to communicate the lyrics as precisely as possible. As we were sincerely delivering a message.
Bom: Teddy oppa (the songís lyricst and composer) said heíd like it if our voice tones were sharp so we put in effort to do so.

10: What do you think about while singing?
CL : To be honest I havenít had any unique experiences, so on stage I just express the feelings that I felt while watching a movie or listening to music. When you spend several years in a practice room, other experiences decrease, so I usually get the lyrics or feelings by listening to the music.
Bom: In ďIn the ClubĒ, I liked the part that Dara sang so much that I asked [her] what she was thinking about and she said that she was just acting. That answer came and connected with my heart.

10: Does your acting experience in the Philippines help when you sing, Sandara?
Dara: I consider myself to be acting when recording, filming a music video, or on the stage. [But] Iíve heard some talk that itís slightly excessive, so Iím trying to control myself.

10: Your fans in the Philippines seem extremely proud.
Dara: And they monitor in real-time. Iím grateful that they send me presents too. Since I have so many friends and memories there, I feel like itís my native home.

10: You entered YG after experiencing enormous popularity in the Philippines. Wasnít your decision difficult?
Dara: My original dream was to be a singer, and I wanted to do proper music so it wasnít a big worry. Although Iím aging (laughs), I think I was patient because it was for something that I wanted to do. There were times when I felt in a slump or lonely but I never thought of giving up.

10: Maybe it was because of your image during activities in the Philippines but it was surprising to see you digest the hip-hop ambiance.
Dara: I liked Jinusean sunbaesí or 1TYM sunbaesí songs a lot from a long time ago, but I never thought that I could do it. I wanted to enter YG because I liked its family-like atmosphere, but I saw when I came in that everybody listened to hip-hop music all the time. Seeing that, I got more and more into hip-hop, and wanted to wear hats or large menís clothes such as baggy pants.

10: I heard that at YG, sunbaes (seniors) directly give lessons. Sunbaes like Se7en and Danny [join in to] help during practice; everyone gives us so much help.
CL: Itís not that thereís a separate lesson time thatís set, they just come find us and do it.

10: Which song do each of you like from the album?
Dara: ďPretty BoyĒ. Itís the song that can express my voice the prettiest. I like the lyrics too. This is also a story about a strong girl, and it distinctly shows each memberís individuality.
CL: I like ďLetís Go PartyĒ. When that song first came out, I recorded the demo in English, solo. Iíve had a strange feeling [about it] since then. Itís an exciting yet sad song.

10: If one listens to the album, thereís a mix of song genres. Even just in ďI Donít CareĒ thereís a mix of reggae and hip-hop; how was it to absorb the song.
CL : I think that weíre doing hip-hop at the core. But just like you can see in the fashion these days, just because you do hip-hop doesnít mean you wear baggy pants and a big t-shirt. I think hip-hop changes with the generation. Because currently in the States, Kanye West doesnít wear big pants nor do old school hip-hop.

10: I heard that Bom liked Mariah Carey.
Bom: I really liked Mariah Carey and Beyonce. I like music with a beat too. And I want to rap. But I canít actually rap well. Thatís why itís such good fortunate that I met Chae Lin (CL).

10: You must have felt like the group was complete when you met CL.
Bom: Before debuting as 2ne1, we did a rap feature for each other for fun and [she] was really impressive. Although there was a big age gap, I did think that we were well-suited to each other.

10: How did you get into music, CL? I heard that you got into YG by giving CEO Yang Hyun Suk a video clip with you rapping on it.
CL : Because my father listened to music a lot, I naturally listened to music a lot since I was young. Although my father liked diverse music, I only listened to hip-hop. As I entered YG, I realized that that wasnít necessarily all. I broadened my mind while listening together to the music that sunbaes listen to, and [now] listen to a lot of diverse music. Nowadays Iíve come to listening to music by muscians such as MIA. I constantly listened to a lot of music before the debut. Iíd sing at home with earphones in and then want to dance, so I learned a variety of dance too.

10: What kinds of dance?
CL: Ballet and jazz dance. Hip-hop wasnít something I [took lessons for]; I just approached dancers and got to know them while translating when they [worked] with foreign dancers.

They have been practising/rehearsing more now than before. It would be tiresome but since their enjoying what they do it would lessen any tiredness their feeling. Dara's so honest in answering that she's aging but take note yes she is aging but look at her as she aged the more she looks beautiful and the more she were able to show her talent. Go Dara!

usually all kpop idols have a busy schedule when rehearsing... after their last activity at night they go straight to rehearsing and finished at least 2am... then they have to wake up early to do their make-up.

so yeah busy busy

What a hectic schedule. I guess because of the time of work they have they should stay healthy always.
