Because we must response to the expectations. But, we are still not able to actually feel the popularity. We can only confirm it by the number of members in our fan café increasing day by day. Thank you very much. Currently, the number of members in our fan café is more than 2000 (laughs).—- What do you think is the secret of popularity?Himchan: For me I think whether it’s my familiarity/intimacy point. Besides that, I am equipped with a soft feel to it… (laughs). It’s a little embarrassing saying this out from my mouth… Jongup is the master of dance and he has a good figure, besides that, he is the 「organic man(?)」. He is really pure.

Daehyun is as if there is no appearance complaint attached, and when Yongguk is on stage, he has a 180 degree charisma transformation that when I am a man I do think it’s cool. Youngjae’s name means gifted, he has a strong sense of responsibility, that’s why he does his job perfectly. Zelo, the magnae, has a cute appearance and tall, with the high-level rap, he is loved by noonas. —- I would like you to introduce about B.A.P’s music.Bang Yongguk: A common belief of B.A.P is 「Man must be manly/masculinity」. Our debut song 「WARRIOR」 is also like that, as well as this time’s second single 「POWER」, I think it will give out a feeling like 「Oh, that’s strong/intense」 when listening for the first time. Among the songs that were released recently, I think that isn’t our song is the most masculinity. Especially this time 「POWER」 which became deeper and further evolve the masculinity beauty. Among all four songs, the last song 「It’s All Lies」 is the only ballad song, while the other songs are all powerful hardcore hip-hop. If you are looking for an intense song, I think it will stick into your heart deeply.—- I can feel the manly strength of both 「WARRIOR」 and 「POWER」.Himchan: The lead song 「POWER」 and 「WARRIOR」 is a hardcore hip-hop with the mix of powerful hardcore rock and hip-hop sound that composed by composer Mr. Kang Jiwon and Mr. Kim Kibum. The beginning of the song with intense sound and rap, I think the song gives out a difference feeling from what we have heard so far. From the side of the sound, it’s also more powerful than 「WARRIOR」 and has been evolved. In addition, the lyrics is about to fight against the strong who try to get tyranny from power and money, represents the strong anger and antipathy, and the contents that will give the power to speak for the weak. —- What was the preparation/resolution to complete the second single?Youngjae: For the concept of this album, I think you certainly felt it by watching our music video, we appeared as an alien from outer space. In 「WARRIOR」, it was the image of a warrior that confronts the absurdity of society. Such a concept that is, we as warriors, as the matter of fact our hometown was not the Earth but outside world. But, the target of the anger we face is unchanged from the previous which is posing the society that exists in the Earth. Bang Yongguk: Speaking of resolution, the goal of B.A.P from the time we debut is 「To conquer the Earth with our music」. If we start from 「WARRIOR」, this time in 「POWER」, I think that we desire to get even closer to our dream and the resolution that can be felt.
