You're originally from Busan but have now been living in Seoul for quite a while. What are moments that make you think you've become a Seoulite?
I feel like one every time I'm on TV and speak in standard dialect. (laughs) I lost my dialect quite rapidly, maybe that's why. (Youngjae: But even now, when he's on the phone with his parents or his friends from Busan he speaks in dialect. (laughs))

BABYs are ___.
You're mine!!

Please tell us what you first think about when you hear "spring."
I think of Forsythia, because they are a very pretty colour. There were a lot of Forsythia that bloomed close to my house in the spring.

How was it to be in the MBC Idol Sports Championship?
This time we won the silver medal in relay~! We did the mixed relay race with Secret, and we were really happy to get a medal even though it was our first time participating. Next time we'll definitely do our best to win the gold medal! Also we participated in Archery for the first time and got 4th place, so I'm really satisfied. I definitely want to participate again next time!

What word or phrase do you use a lot?
I have the habit of saying "su (he makes noise while breathing in)" a lot when I'm interviewed.

It seems that your bright personality comes from your family. What kind of family do you want to build in the future?

When it's time for me to have my own family, more than anything I want to make it a family that is overflowing with love. Because I believe that no matter where you look, anywhere in the world, there's nothing that can replace family. They're an important presence that will always be by my side no matter what happens, and I think you have to have love at the centre of that. Also, for the kids to not feel lonely, I think it would be nice to be able to live together as a family, in a happy atmosphere. I'm not really someone that's good at doing romantic things, and I don't know if I can become a cool husband to my wife, like you see in dramas, but I want to become a husband that my wife can trust, rely on, and depend on. To my son I want to be a father that's like friend, easy going and approachable. To my daughter I want to be a father that is caring, kind, and sensitive. I want to help raise my kids so they are happy and are able to find what they really want to do. Like me, who started doing music, struggled during adolescence but overcame it, and who is now able to stand here…

What word or phrase do you use a lot?
I thought about it, but I really don't know. The fans probably know more about that than me. BABYs, please let me know what words I use a lot! (laughs)

During the Arena tour, the way you took the initiative and emceed in Japanese was memorable.
Our memories of our Japan tour of last year were those of a pleasant start, and a performance with a special meaning. During our previous tour, the Pacific tour, we also challenged not using a translator, and we're planning to not use translators and to emcee with our own words from now on as well. We've been studying Japanese from before, so it's not something impossible. Right now we're not studying anymore but I really want to become better at Japanese!

Please tell us what you first think about when you hear "spring"
You can't talk about spring and leave out its beautiful and colourful flowers. How can trees that have gone through winter be able to bloom such pretty flowers… The more I think about it, the more it's a mystery.

BABYs are ___
You are my spring.

In our previous interview, you said that in 2014 you would stop drinking coffee…
I made a promise with our fans, a promise that I would only drink two cups a day. I didn't have the confidence that I'd be able to stop drinking it but since I was going to make a promise with the fans I would have to keep it. So in order to keep it, I instead decided to reduce how much I drink. (laughs) On the other hand, there's something I started this year. I started practicing instruments again. The other day I played piano for the first time in a while for a special stage with Daehyun and Youngjae. It had really been a while, so I couldn't play very well… When we're done promoting and I have a little more time, I want to start practicing again.

The members voted you as the least athletic…?! What do you think about this result?
I admit that I'm not the most athletic. But I've been swimming since I was young and I have the confidence that I can beat all of the members when it comes to that. And, I'm the best looking of all the members, so it's ok! (laughs) Ahaha! I'm B.A.P's official visual! But lately all the members are becoming more and more handsome, so I'm a little nervous… Especially Yongguk. Ever since he changed his hairstyle the reaction from the fans has been extremely good, so he's the one I have to be the most careful of. (laughs)

Yongguk answered "Himchan" when he was asked what member he wanted to change places with. Do you think you'd like to change places with Yongguk?
I think I'm the best when I'm myself so I'll pass. I'm joking. (laughs) Men also think that Yongguk is cool so I'd like to try and change places with him. If I could, I'd change places when he's working on an album so I can also make music. Also, I'd like to try and have his low voice and charisma for once, as they are things that I don't have.
