Q 1: What kind of music genre did you aim in the current album? (Lucky )
KHJ: Frankly speaking, it seems that nobody is interested in my songs in themselves. I focused on “ music to see performance “ rather than “ music to listen to “. However, what I would like to aim from now on is a sort of music which makes everyone cheerful. I know that nobody expects me a high-quality music pieces. That is why I wanted to create songs easy on the ear. I aimed songs which make people comfortable and cheerful by just listening to. Maybe I talked about this too honestly (laugh)
Q2: Do you believe that you have grown up in music through this album?
KHJ: Yes, I feel that I could have made improvement during this album production. I made my best efforts in vocal lessons to change myself. Though there are still many things to be improved, I feel that I could have changed the tone of my voice.
Q3: The 2nd mini-album, “Lucky “ includes a few pieces of ballad.
KHJ: As I knew that people expected me to sing a ballad, I added them in the current album (laugh). In order to give a sense of stability in tone of the ballad, I especially focused on this to show how I had changed. I hope that everyone like them.
Q4: Compared with the previous mini-album, “Break Down”, how do you think of “Lucky” ?
KHJ: To be honest with you, “Lucky” is better than “Break Down”.
