Day 19: Your favourite interview of a k-pop idol or group

04.02.2011 @ 13:46 i 30 Days of K-pop 0 kommentarer

Jeg kan ikke skryte på meg å ha lest mange intervjuer med k-pop artister.
Men jeg leser de med G-dragon, så mitt favoritt intervju må jo være ett med G-dragon.
Jeg har ikke en konkret favoritt, men jeg liker intervjuer med mange spørsmål,
ofte mange random spørsmål og som ikke handler om musikk.
Intervjuet G-dragon gjorde med NYLON korea i anledning hans solo-album "Heartbreaker" 
er ett slikt intervju.

Det er på Engelsk, men jeg tror dere ikke for stor problemer med å forstå det^^
Å publisere hele intervjuet her blir for langt (men jeg har valgt ut det beste ^^)

Men dere kan lese hele intervjuet: HER

Do Kwon Jiyong that wears the most standing out clothing in Seoul prefers comfortable clothing?

I wore my clothes small and wore a lot of clothing that stood out. Haha. The same in my normal everyday life and on stage. I always dress up head to toe then change many many times before I go out. Even when I go to the supermarket.(laugh) These days it needs to be comfortable. Now looks hip-hop fashion is coming back in the fashion area. Like Givenchy?s collection, everything was a little oversized. I?m welcoming this trend.


I heard that you also don?t really care about wearing women size clothing if the clothes are nice. I felt this at our shooting scene today too, but you don?t look like you intentionally make yourself look cool and handsome.

It?s because I?m not handsome. TOP hyung is handsome. Our Bigbang members are more friendly looking than being really handsome. To Daesung I tell him right in front of him ?I?m not the best looking, but you aren?t handsome.? Daesung knows that he?s not the best looking. We don?t care about our faces. In fashion shoots there?s always a concept; I follow the concept that the staffs give me, I don?t try to make my face come out nicely or anything- that makes the picture and the outfit die away. Before I wanted to look good in the pictures, but since I?m not the best looking it doesn?t come out like that. Like exaggerating everything to look nice doesn?t really suit me.


What?s your favorite brand these days? Do you think you could wear only one brand for the rest of your life if someone told you to do so?

I?ve been loving Givenchy these days. If I had to wear only one brand on stage then I would wear John Galliano; but for everyday life I would like to wear Givenchy. Actually I like classic clothing like Givenchy.


How much clothes do you have? Do you organize your clothes so well that you would know if a piece went missing?

I have a lot of clothing right now too. But I?ll have even more later since I?ll keep buying more.(laugh) Actually in our house I have two rooms just for clothes. Winter clothes I separate them and put them at my parent?s house. Right now there?s not enough room for my summer clothes so I?ve folded some and put them somewhere else. I?m really good at organizing things. Whenever I do music or anything else I can?t concentrate if something is out of order(changing the direction of the recorder on the table). This is bugging me a little too. It was a little crooked.


Haha. You?re a neat freak.

(Putting the recorder back to how it was crooked) I?m a little paranoid. Its okay if it?s someone else?s but my stuff all has to be in the right angle. My friends are always surprised when they come over to my house.


I thought that you wouldn?t wear the same clothes twice since you have so many.

If you see the recent collections there are a lot of collections that reinterpreted the 80?s fashion style. I mix in the old clothes. My mom was a smart dresser. She bought me a lot of clothes so I always went to the department store/mall with her a lot. Maybe that?s why I like clothes so much; my mom?s regretting right now since I buy too much. My mom also used to make clothes for me. She made rips in my jean jackets and patched my jeans. We also went to the Peace Market(place to buy clothes) a lot. I bought a lot of clothes from my grandma?s clothing store in Hwanghakdong. Like this vest I usually don?t throw away the clothes I buy. It may seem like the trend?s past but I could wear it and make it look nice. I think it depends on how you wear it.


But do you try to wear the latest clothing on stage? I heard that when you shop you call your stylist and ask ?Is it too late to buy this?.

I don?t know if I?m the only one that thinks a lot about this, but for stage outfits I try to show everyone the newest stuff. I also don?t like wearing the same stuff as someone else. If it?s been a while since the design?s come out then that means someone could?ve already wore it. I try to find it before anyone else does.


Maybe because you?re one of the most influential style icons?

It?s embarrassing to say ?style icon??. (laugh) I just like clothes; those words are quite overwhelming for me.


I thought you somewhat enjoyed it but I must?ve been wrong.

Because of that I constantly think ?Do I have to wear this first??


You were criticized a lot when you wore the t-shirt that had the word ?sex? on it. Did you think that they were over-reacting?

I?d been wanting to wear that shirt for ages. I tried to find it for two or three years but it was impossible to find. But on the day of that awards ceremony Jieun nuna(stylist) bought it from this second-hand shop. I was so happy I wore it right when I got it. When we wear something we usually don?t read all the writing that it has. Honestly I didn?t see what it said on the shirt but if you look at it as a picture you get to read it. It was my fault that I didn?t think of that and I have to apologize because it made the people watching feel uncomfortable. But to be really honest I didn?t really understand them.


If you had a change to perform with Lady Gaga who wears even more shocking clothes than you, what would you wear?

I think I would dress neat and modern. If we both dressed like that then we would probably look like aliens.


There were articles of how you had depression while preparing for your first solo album since it was so hard. You know that right?

I?m not the type of person that explains everything so I just passed by it but I?m not the type of person that would go into depression. I was quiet for a while because I was a little overwhelmed to prepare everything. Maybe that made me looked like I was depressed?


For some you?re a person that has a lot. A lot of talent and you?ve met a lot of good people. You were born in the right era so you could show off your talent. Because of that there were many negative rumors about you such as the depression, composing etc. These rumors because of your popularity, aren?t you mad?

It?s not like that they?ll believe me even if I explain everything; I hope that sometime later they?ll acknowledge me as a ?person that works hard?. I think it?ll be solved then so I try to not care about it. It?s quite disappointing though. Even though I may look like a flippant person on TV but I work hard. When everyone else is sleeping I write songs. I barely even sleep. I mean why, what do they hate about me so much. Since I?m still young and I still do get hurt.

What efforts have you made?

When I?m into something I keep on going. When I don?t want to do something I don?t. For ten years and even now, I?m still into music and clothes. It was since I was in middle schools. I used to buy and make stuff since I didn?t have anything else to do. People look at me as Bigbang, but on times when I?m not on TV I have quite a lot of time. I sometimes go out to meet my friends too. At home there?s seriously nothing to do. When I work on a number of songs it?s just a few that actually go in the albums. Well I don?t really have to explain this process. In my opinion I think I have to let the listeners listen to only the good stuff.

Do you think you have talent?

I do think so because if I didn?t have the talent I don?t think I would be able to do this stuff. I put in a lot of effort in too, but I think I had a little more talent than everyone else.


Do you have someone that you admire who has talent that you think you can?t catch up to?

No one. I?m not saying I?m amazing or anything, but I think that in the end they?re all just people and I think that I can become friends with them. I have this DJ that I became friends with during our Japan activities. His friend is friends with Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. If I hang out with them I could get to be friends with them too. I think you can become friends with anyone as you like clothes and music. I don?t have a person that I want to be like but there are a whole bunch of people that I think are cool. I think people who enjoy and work hard are the best.

What song would you like to listen to right now?

Kim Heunggook?s ?Yellow Butterfly?. Since I?m wearing yellow pants right now I want to listen to that song; it would be exciting. Or maybe Kim Heungook?s ?Raggae Party??


You have tattoos on your arms and your back. What do they mean?

On my right arm it says ?Dolce Vita? and on my left it says ?Moderato?. Sweetly enjoying life and living at ease. On my back it says ?too fast to live, to young to die?. Sid Vicious said this and it means ?too corrupted to live but too young to die?. It seemed like my story. I usually get a tattoo before I achieve a big goal. I need to do one for this album but I don?t know where I should.

Have you thought of a phrase yet?

?Head and thinking cold, heart hot?. This phrase was my motive since I was young.
