As part of 2012 BEAST’s World Tour (Beautiful Show), they recently visited Shanghai. The concert was scheduled to be held on the 25th February 7.30pm (local time) at the Shanghai International Gymnastic Centre. Before that, BEAST had an interview with SINA and the contents could be seen below.
Q: BEAST has only debuted for 2 years, but has already grown into one of the most popular boy band in Korea, even held a world tour, outshining many senior artists, how do you think you achieved this?
Dongwoon: It’s the love from the fans, their care let us become like now, let us go to various countries, meet more fans. We can only do our best within our ability to make music, in order to return their love.
Q: Which senior artists and other idols BEAST has a rather close relationship with? What have you learned from them?
Gikwang: Our relationships in our circle with many artists are very good, especially with FT Island’s Lee Hongki, and there’s senior artist like JYJ. From them we learned a lot of stage experience, how to be more skillful.
Q: BEAST has gone to many different places in the world to perform, how are your impressions of the fans? Are there any rather profound impressions?
Dongwoon, Doojoon: No matter which country we go, the greatest impression is the fans’ love. On our last visit to Shanghai we only sang two songs, too bad, tomorrow (25 February 2012) is our official performance, we expect fans can come to see us.
Q: Have BEAST ever listened to Chinese songs? Is there any Chinese song you guys like? For this concert in China, do you guys prepare any special show?
Hyunseung: Previously on a Korean’s music ceremony we performed together with Lang Lang, we were greatly honored. I listen to quite a lot of Chinese songs. For tomorrow night’s performance, we haven’t prepared any Chinese songs, but if fans want us to, we could sing some.
Q: After his debut Doojoon has participated in variety of programs. He is really a multitalented artist. Are there more challenges you’d like to seek?
Doojoon: Actually I’d like to try being a sport commentator, like soccer for example or participate in a radio show. Also, I’d like to continue acting on TV and movies, but, since I’m a singer, I have to do my best, so that I can develop my singing career.
Q: Hyunseung usually gives a well-behaved impression, but in the sub-group Troublemaker with HyunA, (Hyunseung) gives fans a great shock. Does Hyunseung still wanna give another try?
Hyunseung: With HyunA, it was rather a new type of collaboration; to fans it was also something new, I’d like to do more challenges like this in music, more collaboration with other artists. I hope in the future that I’ll have more opportunities.
Meanwhile, the next Beautiful Show Concert is scheduled in Singapore on the 3rd of March at the Max Pavillion.
