Having sold-out their first ever Japan arena concert in last January, B1A4 has been picked as the most anticipated idols of 2013 and their main vocal is celebrating his birthday today. Born 20 March 1992.
Despite having the nickname of 'happy virus' because of his aegyo-filled eyesmile and Busan accent, the seriousness when he sings is unbeatable. We hear more about his thoughts of celebrating his birthday from the 'owner of a reversal charm' with explosive vocals that steal women's hearts.
Q. What do you intend to do on your birthday?
A: We're scheduled to be practicing tomorrow. I'm not too sure if Jinyoung hyung will show me a movie, but I'm looking forward to it. But personally, there is something that I find myself wanting to do tomorrow. I've never looked around the area around my house so I want to wake up early, stroll around the neighbourhood and the hills behind while taking photos.
Q. How do you feel about celebrating your birthday?
A: Last year I celebrated my birthday with fans. Maybe it's because it was such a huge occasion that having to celebrate it amongst ourselves this time is a little saddening. I think it'll be more fun if there was an opportunity to celebrate and enjoy together. I think it's because I spent it way too interestingly last year. Even so, I'm really thankful that there are still fans who come personally to congratulate me.
Q. How do you feel about growing older?
A: Since growing old means gaining more life experience, I am looking forward to me. I'm curious to know how I will think as I grow older. I want to express the things that I feel from the gradual acquisition of life experiences musically.
Q. What is the age you look forward to the most, and why?
A: 30 years old. People around me say that only when you go over 30 years old, you have 'experienced life'. I think that's why I look forward to getting older. I'm curious about what kind of emotions and thoughts I would have and how I will sing according to the experiences I've had.
Q. What are the things you like to hear, and hate to hear on your birthday?
A: I hate to hear people tell me not to eat so much. Honestly it's my birthday, I want to eat cake and delicious foods. It's sad to hear people asking me to restrain myself. I thought about things I'd like to hear, but I'm still not too sure. 'Happy birthday' is good but weirdly, it doesn't seem to be it. Of course I'm thankful that people congratulate me on the day I'm born once a year, but I end up thinking even more about my parents. I didn't think this way in the past, but having to live apart from my parents... I think even more about them on my birthday. I hope my birthday is a day where I can reflect on the past times.
Q. What was your conception dream?
A: I asked my mother, and she said there were huge fishes swimming along the river bank and amongst them was a rainbow fish.
Q. What was the most memorable birthday?
A: My birthday last year. Celebrating my birthday this year, the thought of last year came up and I felt like something was lacking. It was really nice that it wasn't just me being congratulated but an occasion that everyone was happy and enjoying.
Q. What special presents have you received?
A: This time would be photobook? There are many fans who made them like a long album. It's nice because it's filled with all the memories and it makes me think of the past.
Q. What is a present you wish to receive?
A: I want to receive a song that everyone can enjoy and feel happy.
Q. If you were given a break for your birthday, what is one thing you have to do?
A: A holiday. I like to just walk around, so it'll be nice to walk about aimlessly while sightseeing and gathering up my thoughts.
Q. What was a wish you made when you were young? Has it come true?
A: If I talk about wishes that have yet to come true, they won't come true so those are kept as secrets. But amongst those that have come true, 'please let me sing' would be one. I got that job that allows me to sing.
Q. What would be your birthday in 10 years' time be like?
A: I want to spend my birthday in 10 years' time on stage. Not just being congratulated, but I want to be the present to someone too. The presents I can give are songs, so it'll be nice to be standing on stage.
Q. A star whom you wish to be congratulated by?
A: Zion.T. I was extremely impressed and moved by watching him sing. His style of singing is very interesting and delightful, so I think I'll be really happy to be able to be congratulated by him.
Q. If there's something you want to thank on your birthday?
A: My parents. Thank you so much for giving birth to me, for bringing me up, for allowing me to sing as I live. And thank you for believing in me and allowing me to do the things I want to.
Q. Say something to yourself on your birthday.
A: Don't think about other things, have strength and work hard from now on. Fighting!
