[TRANS/INT] 140403 B1A4 Jinyoung, Quite a ‘good’ singer, actor and Jinyoung

With sleek eyes, and a lovely face without anything unnecessary, the first thing you see is his appearance that looks as if he’s about to go into a manhwa book. But to describe him with just his looks, is infinitely lacking. Popular idol group leader, lyricist, composer, producer, and actor he is all of them, and to say the least he is a versatile man. With every question, he answers to the full extent, smiling and pouring out his bright, white positivity, and it became obvious what his charm was.

Debuting in 2011, they calmly found their unique color of music, the five member group, B1A4. Writing their own lyrics, and making their songs, in the center of it all is their leader Jinyoung. Their title track of their album ‘Who Am I’, ‘Lonely’, which was released this past January, was of course written by the leader Jinyoung. On public and cable television, they won eight times. Furthermore through the movie Jinyoung was in, ‘Miss Granny,’ he was able to enter the big screen as an ambitious newcomer.

While talking to 24-year-old Jinyoung, who does everything with extreme care and challenges new things non-stop, it seems that he had the confidence to take on anything he would want to do. He has the power to spread his positivity to anybody. Is it not that his strength as a leader, a singer, and as a actor came to light here.

Q. From the start of 2014 there was a continuous flow of good events. This past January the B1A4 2nd full album’s title track ‘Lonely’ won first eight times, and the movie Jinyoung was in ‘Miss Granny’ reached over eight million viewers.

Jinyoung: We’re receiving so much love, that I’m at a loss at what to do. I’ve come to think that the next time we come back, we should should show an even better image, and that we shouldn’t get lazy. So as a result I’ve focused and am working harder.

[NEWS] 140403 B1A4 Jinyoung Song Collection, from ‘Bling Girl’ to ‘Who Am I’

aviateb1a4:

On the 2nd, the KBS2 pilot program ‘Million Seller’ was broadcasted, and in it B1A4’s Jinyoung completely understood the viewer-written lyrics and wrote a beautiful melody to go with it. Joo Hyeon-mi commented on the song he produced on the program, ‘Companion,’ saying, ‘The tone was hard to grab, but int was a dreamy song,’ and complimented Jinyoung. Jinyoung was introduced as a singer-songwriter idol, and from their debut album to their most recent 2nd full album that was released this past January, at least one of the songs, he has written. Especially, from their first full album, ‘Ignition,’ B1A4’s title tracks have been consistently composed by Jinyoung. Counting all of his songs, he has composed a total of 16. With all the songs he has composed in the past 3 years, it would not be lacking if they were put into a special album. So we prepared. Jinyoung’s song collection, if it were to have a name, ‘Made by Jinyoung.’

(*this is excluding intros and songs released in their Japanese album.)

[TRACK LIST]

01. Bling Girl

Jinyoung’s first song, that was on the debut album ‘Let’s Fly.’ It is about a boy who has falled in love and expresses it saying, ‘You’re my sparkling, cute princess.” It portrays the excitement of love and the cuteness of it as well.

02. Wonderful Tonight

It’s about wanting their lover to come back after leaving, and in the end it is not ‘wonderful.’ With the ironic title, it’s easy to confirm Jinyoung’s positive mind set. The rock base and electronic sound adds to the cheeriness.

[TRANS/INT] 140403 B1A4 Jinyoung, Behind the scenes of the photoshoot ‘Cupid is here’

aviateb1a4:

While Jinyoung went  to change, the photographer said with admiration, “He’s really good.” And it was true. Even though his experience with acting only consisted of one drama, and one movie, he reacted quickly and compliantly to the photographer’s requests. His expressions were limitless. It was to the point where I wondered, where he was hiding a ‘Infinite Expressions’ button. If you asked him to do one thing, he would do at least two or three.

In the beginning Jinyoung’s concept was a ‘flower boy.’ However we wrealized that even with just Jinyoung, the picture would be complete, so the set and props were minimized. It was even decided that he would wear all white, which is often hard to pull off. With one mind, and one thought that, ‘If it isn’t Jinyoung, we will never be able to do this,’ we were able to have the chance of doing this concept. It wasn’t long until everybody fell for Jinyoung’s charm - like a blank paper he could draw on any image including a lovable cupid, a sleepy and sexy cat, and a mischievous boy. 

# It’s the first time I’ve sang in front of a singer

I’ve never hummed a song like this before. Normally when talking about songs, it’s just part of the whole conversation. But for some reason during Jinyoung’s interview (even as the singer was in front of me) I began to softly sing along. While he was explaining his songs, he asked frequently ” Do you know this song?” “Have you listened to it before?” and I felt like I need to show definitely that I knew. Or maybe it’s that Jinyoung’s adventurous nature had spread to me, during the interview. When Jinyoung explanied the lyrics, he always sang a short port of the song, and when he did I sang along. Though it was really embarrassing, it was also something I remember as a nice memory.

Real man blood type B rapper, Baro

Q. As a blood type B, you must dislike getting restricted.
Baro: Absolute rejection. (laugh) I always want to be carefree. Even at home, my parents would not interfere so long I kept my promises. I worked hard when I needed to, and I played hard when I played. In that process, I learnt that any mistakes I make are all my responsibilities, so naturally I don’t show acts of defiance or breakaway.

Introducing All Songs from B1A4’s Second Japanese Album 2! The Members Discuss Thoughts About the Songs and the Recording Experience
Posted to Kstyle on March 20, 2014 (Japanese-language)
Interviewer: Nagahori Atsuo
Translated into English by bwun-a4
In January of this year, their most recent single “Lonely” (penned by the leader Jinyoung) ranked #1 not only on 8 Korean cable music programs, but also on 7 online music distribution charts. Having established themselves as a #1 artist, B1A4 is taking the next leap.
On March 19 (Wednesday), their second Japanese album 2 was released. The meaning of the name encompasses a present to the fans, with the hidden meaning of “to you” (e.g., “I’m giving this to you”). The album contains 3 new original Japanese songs and 5 Japanese versions of songs contained in the group’s Korean releases; as such, it represents an intermingling of the B1A4’s past, present, and future.
The members themselves discussed all of the mini-album’s 8 songs in terms of thoughts about the music and lyrics, and shared memories from the album recording.
