T.O.P’s Naver Music Interview (20120219)

Interviewer: Many fans have been looking forward to hear from you. How have you been?
TOP: These days, I’m trying to concentrate on this album, ALIVE. Actually, there was a drama that I was working for 3 months but I cancelled it so I can focus on this album.

Interviewer: What does BIGBANG mean to you?
TOP: When I have my kids, I want to show them my twenties. For me, it is a keepsake of my hottest youth.

Interviewer: What is the common thing about BIGBANG members? How can you guys be doing fine?
TOP: In spite of having our own passion, we are so warm-hearted. Everyone is truthful, pure, passionate, energetic and always go for the same path. How could we do well as a team, it’s because each has different characters and dispositions but we don’t go against each other. When I see them as an older brother, they always lean on each other. They seem to be a real family, including me.

Interviewer: What do you think of this album?
TOP: I’m dearly attached to this album. I had so many inspirations when I worked as GD&TOP. I wrote lyrics having much attachment/affection. This album shows our honest feelings. I really want to show you as soon as possible, without embellishment.

T.O.P Interview from High Cut (Volume 71) Part 2/2

(Joint interview between Soh CD & TOP)
Not long ago, TOP made a surprise appearance at Gummy’s ‘I am a Singer’ stage. How was it like being on the show?
I was on the show because I heard that Gummy noona didn’t get number 1 in the previous competition, so I had a “I must make her number 1” thought. In the end, she got a really good score (number 1) so I felt satisfied. Actually if ‘I’ am a Singer’ was my own stage, I would be very nervous but since I was there only to help so I told myself not to worry. After I finished the stage for ‘Rascal’, I really did end up becoming one.
Lee Mi-Suk sunbae-nim said on ‘Healing Camp’ that she would like to act with you. When will you make your comeback as an actor again?
It’s not like that, but the after I finished recording for ‘I am A Singer’, I randomly saw Lee Mi-Suk sunbae-nim on ‘Healing Camp’. As a matter of fact, I said on a variety show before that “it’s tiring having photoshoots with Lee Mi-Suk sunbae-nim” as a way to be funny, but it became too exaggerated and I regretted saying that. It will definitely be an honor to act with Lee Mi-Suk sunbae-nim. As for my acting, I have a few projects on hand but because BIGBANG’s album release has been pushed to an earlier date, so my entire focus is on the album right now. If there are any other good projects and if our timing is the same, then I definitely want to act together no matter what.
Do you have any intention of releasing a solo album?
There’s nothing much to say about my solo album. I will release it when I think I’m ready. To be honest, I have already created lots of songs but I think I should work on them a bit more. I’m working on my confidence too and it’s slowly increasing. If I can’t produce an album that will make people surprised, then I don’t think there’s a need to produce one. First of all, I want to worry less starting from January, 2012 (laughs).

Different from her glamorous image now, Park Bom wearing minimal makeup looked extremely natural and endearing.
