[NEWS] Rythmer Interview: Choice37 talks about YG Family!

During this ‘Rhythmer awards’ you said that you can work in perfect harmony and be comfortable with G-dragon, right? We would like to hear more about how it was like….

 

  • Choice37: First of all, G-dragon is very free and he is definitely creative. That’s why it’s easy to work with him. He grasps the concept very quickly. In order to make a good song, you should have a certain concept instead of just filling in the 16 measures with rap, and G-dragon is excellent in that field.
How was “One of A Kind” Created?
  • Choice37: In YG we have a monthly ‘beat meeting’ where all producers gather in the studio and listen to our beats. At that time, I made a beat and I let Teddy hear it first and then I brought it to our beat meeting. When SaJangNim (Yang Hyun Suk) heard the song he said ‘Ah, give this to Jiyongie.’ Sajangnim wanted that particular song for Jiyong. In our company, it’s usually Sajangnim who listens to all of the music and decides who it belongs to.
How’s your relationship with other YG artists?
  • Choice37: YG’s atmosphere is like a big gym so I really like it. If you look at the hallways, there are segways and various pop arts. That’s why it’s very fun to work there. It’s a pleasure to discover new concepts and ideas. Youngbae and TOP are also very passionate about music. When I’m just sitting in my studio they would come and ask me for new music.
Who bothers you by asking you for music the most?
  • Choice37: (Laughs) Youngbae comes to me the most. I can really feel that he loves music. He’s always full of energy. Especially, he has an outstanding sense of music. We listen to Miguel and Frank Ocean together.
So you interact with Bigbang members the most.
  • Choice37: They’re my closest artist and we have many connections.
How about 2NE1?
  • Choice37: 2NE1’s great as well. But 2NE1 is in Teddy’s hands. Sajangnim gave the assignment to Teddy. And since they’re girls I don’t see them often in the studio. But Youngbae comes over often to use the computer and Jiyong comes often to talk.
What kind of music do you guys listen to when you guys are together?
  • Choice37: In hip hop, we listen to A$ap Rocky, Kendrick Lamar together. In R&B, as I mentioned earlier, I listen to Miguel or Frank Ocean. Not only that we listen to many other musicians as well.
Almost all of YG’s music has caught the ears of not only idol fandoms but pop fans and black music manias. Where does this power of YG’s music come from?
  • Choice37: I think from our outstanding quality. As time passes, the public’s ears want more high quality music. I think that’s why Sajangnim considers the quality of our music very important. Rather than music that’s shiny on the outside, honest music appeals more to the public. I think the reason why Jiyong and Youngbae receive a lot of love is because they do the music they want to do, expressing their honest words. They don’t work aiming to sell many albums. Even when babies hear the song they know if it’s real or not. Anyone can see the sincerity in music.

G-Dragon commented, “The G-Dragon concert now ends like this. I thank everyone who came out. I hope I get to see you again next year. I’m sad that the concert is over. Now my overseas concerts are waiting for me, and whenever I go overseas, my heart feels a little homesick. I think that all I can do is work hard. I ask for a lot of support, so I won’t faint. A New Big Bang album is also planned to be released soon, so we will meet fans on stage in the near future. Please just wait a little bit longer.”
“First off, I will be serious for a moment. During the past four years, a lot has happened in my life. Although I matured as an artist, I also took time to mature as a human being. I don’t know what I’ll be doing four years from now, but I want to continue doing music. I will continue to show a good image.”
He continued, “I was so happy today. I hope that this concert remains in your memory for a long time. A lot of people worked hard for this Seoul tour concert which kicked off today. I will introduce them one by one so I ask that you give them a big round of applause. First off, I thank the b-boys, guitarist, bass guitarist, drummer, and lighting and camera directors who inspired me a lot. I am very thankful to my hairstylists, manager hyungs, and staff.”
G-Dragon also showed his gratitude to his YG Family: “Honestly, we don’t contact each other often, but I thank my members who always support me. I’m also thankful to Yang Hyun Suk and the YG family. I’m always thankful to my family who’s such a big source of strength. I want to ask my mother, ‘Your son finished his concert well. Aren’t you proud?’ And last but not least, I am thankful to myself.”
G-Dragon will continue on his world tour until June after 26 concerts across 13 cities in 8 countries.

G-Dragon and Daesung on SBS Incarnation! [NEWS + Link to watch eng subbed videos]

>>>Watch Full Subbed of SBS “Incarnation” Episode with GD & Daesung (Via @Dramacrazy.net)!<<<

  • G-Dragon and Daesung showed off their dating skills.
Both G-Dragon and Daesung were guests on the March 26 episode of ‘Incarnation‘ and they acted out a skit to show how they would ask a girl out using actress Kim Hee Sun as the date.
At the beginning of the skit, G-Dragon joked around by greeting her, “Grandma“, but when both of them settled down at the makeshift movie theater, she said, “I heard this movie was good“. He answered, “Yeah, the movie is good, but this is a little uncomfortable“. He proceeded to push up the arm rests between them as well as the one on his side, and then lied down with his head on her lap.
Not only so, he’d pushed the soda cup far away, so when she leaned over him to drink from it, she’d have to practically lie on top of him. MC Shin Dong Yup said, “He’s a genius!“, and the other guests couldn’t help with their awed laughter.
Daesung was up next, and he said, “I’m going to go for a romance movie“. From the beginning, he made the entire situation comical by breathing hard, and Kim Hee Sun couldn’t help but laugh and say, “His breathing is really loud“. He explained, “This is part of my acting“.
As they kept watching the movie, he suddenly threw down the popcorn he was holding, surprising Kim Hee Sun. She asked, bewildered, “What’s wrong?“, and he said, “It’s just stuffy in here“, causing the audience to burst out laughing again. He said, “I can’t breathe,” and then suddenly grabbed her arms and brought it to his chest, exclaiming, “Feel it.” Of course, the sudden action caused the women watching to shriek in delight, and the men to burst out into laughter. Daesung smoothly ignored them both and said coolly, “Can you feel it? When this movie ends, can you look not at the screen, but just at me?”
+++++++++++++++++
  • Big Bang‘s Daesung revealed his plan on how he got a girl to notice him.
Daesung and G-Dragon were guests on the March 26 installment of SBS‘s ‘Incarnation‘. On the show, Daesung revealed that in real life he is actually very shy. MC Yoon Jong Shin confirmed this and said, “He’s a very cautious person“. G-Dragon added on, “When I see Daesung from the side, he sort of acts like a boy still going through puberty. He sort of teases whoever he likes. He plays a lot of jokes on them. He tells them they’re ugly for no particular reason and makes fun of them, he playfully pushes them around.”
Kim Hee Sun also revealed, “I heard Daesung disappears when he gets in a relationship. He gets so focused on his relationship that he just disappears.” Both G-Dragon and Daesung admitted the claim, and Kim Hee Sun jokingly added, “Since you’ve appeared now (on the show), you must not be in a relationship.”
Daesung admitted it and said, “When I start a relationship, I forget how time passes. One time, I liked someone who I didn’t really even have a chance to meet often. I knew her number, but I didn’t have a reason to contact her. But I really liked her, and I wondered how I could talk to her. The thing I came up with was to pretend like I misdialed her number. I felt like pretending that I texted her by mistake would be too much, so I pretended like I dialed the wrong number.
So I called her, but before that, I had to write out what I was going to say on paper, since I’d be too nervous to properly speak. For example, I pretend like I was supposed to call my stylist, and prepare things like, ‘Noona, what’s on the schedule tomorrow? What time should I get to the shop?’. Since I shouldn’t talk too much, I’ll just end speaking right there.”
He continued, “You also have to be careful because you have to talk before the other person has a chance to speak, since you know her voice. If you look at your phone, the phone will read, ‘Dialing’, but then when the other person picks up, the screen changes to the call timer of 00:00. So you can’t listen – you have to be carefully watching. As soon as it changed, I said everything. There was silence, and then she started to laugh. So I said, ‘Oh! I’m so sorry!’ and hung up. The reason why I hung up was because if I kept talking then, I’d have no more reason to talk to her. So I pretend like I’m talking to the original person I was supposed to call for 5-10 minutes, and then I text back.“
