Q: You finished with great success in Fukuoka, Nagoya, Osaka and Makuhari for your June “LOE 2014” tour. What impressions of the tour can you tell us.

YG: We hadn’t gone to a fan event, it was our first time in some places, and many fans came to see us so we were very happy.
Zelo: For me, each individual fan is a precious person, but I was thrilled that so many fans came to our concert, I felt the greatness of our responsibility.
DH: We were able to experience Japanese culture, and we were able to deepen our interaction with fans so it was good.

Q: What Japanese culture?

DH: In different areas of Japan there are different dialects, right? We studied that a little bit, and came to understand differences in characteristics and buildings.

Q: What Japanese did you remember in different dialects?

DH: “I like it/you” (he used Kansai/Osaka dialect)
HC: “I really like it/you,” “It’s really delicious” (Kansai dialect)
JU: “No way!/What the hell/etc.” (Kansai)
YJ: Really? (Kansai)

Q: Everything seems to be Osaka dialect (laughs)

HC: If we said why we remember it, it’s because a Radio DJ taught us them on a program we were on (laughs)
(going back to the tour impressions)
HC: Actually, it wasn’t that we went to entirely new places you know. There was a place we went to for a fan event. Osaka for example, we went for our previous event when the sakura were blooming but she we went this time the feeling was completely different so it was nice. 
JU: It was incredible seeing many fans giving us huge support where we went. There were many people waiting for us even in places we went for the first time~ and
(T/N: I’m not sure why this “and” is here, there was just a random “and” at the end if his answer, don’t know if it was a typo or if he got interrupted or distracted, or if he meant it as quoting how he felt…)
YJ: We hadn’t done a tour like this in Korea which we were able to visit large local venues for the tour, I still can’t believe it, I am grateful so many fans came to see us. 

Q: Your June tour lasted about a month, but did your Japanese improve?

HC: When we’re in Japan we get used to it, and there are times we can naturally have a conversation, but when we return to Korea or go to another country, frankly we forget when we learned. 

Q: Has Youngjae, who is good at Japanese, learned any new words? 

YJ: Rather than having learned new words, I’ve come to understand Japanese grammar more, I think. I studied through watching Japanese dramas.

Q: You made a Japanese version of your Korean song with this release of “Excuse Me”.
 but what did you think when you first heard this song? 

DH: When I first heard it it was really new! I thought it was a perfect song for us. It’s fun, a song you can be confident singing was what I thought while recording it. I’ve become familiar with the Korean version, when I tried singing the Japanese version, there were parts I think we could express more. I thought, isn’t the Japanese version an upgrade (of the original)? 

Q: Which parts have been upgraded?

DH: The vocals and raps, also (since we are filled with power) when singing we feel useful, I think. There are many areas that got better.

Q: Since you sang the Korean version, there was some time that passed before doing the Japanese version recording. What was it like singing it after a while? 

YJ: We sang “Excuse Me” often at concerts, so it’s a song we’re familiar with, the response to the song was also adequate, we were able to have lots of fun. Whenever we do a Japanese version recording, in order to keep the feel of the original (Korean version) alive, there are some parts that we have to change.

Q: What was it like recording the rap parts?

YG: There are of course a lot of words that I’m not used to so it’s not that it’s not difficult (laughs). There are some words that if you mispronounce sound like different words, so staff helped us and we could record. 
HC: In this song, 3/4 of my part are English words. That’s why the recording the Japanese version this time was not too difficult since it was only a little bit of Japanese lyrics. 
Zelo: Since my part in “Excuse Me” is a little difficult, I think there were some parts that were disappointing so I practiced and repeated them while recording. 
JU: In Korean we understand the meaning, and say it with the words we know, but in Japanese we just learn the lyrics then record, so we might not be able to express very well. This is a difficult part, and more practice is needed for some  parts I think.

Q: There are more new dances in the Japanese version of the “Excuse Me” Music video. Which parts changed? 

Zelo: In the Korean version we made is t ride the rhythm of the song for a feeling of getting fired up together with group dancing, but the dance for the Japanese chorus is new. 

Q: Is there a name for the new dance? 

Zelo: “Orangatang dance?” (laughs)
JU: “Let’s play dance?” (laughs)
DH: “Free Hero dance?” 
HC: Wouldn’t it be better getting Japanese fans to name it? (laughs)

Q: The surprising thing in the MV was Jongup’s image change. Him wearing glasses was different, I thought there was a new member (laughs). What do you think about yourself (in the MV)?

JU: It wasn’t the original intention to go with this feeling, I got a lot of feedback while getting makeup & costuming done as the concept came together. The members also said “It’s good, isn’t it?” so that was how it turned out.

Q: The whole feel of the MV this time is chic and adult.

DH: It was a new attempt to get hip hop costumes with clean, smart jacket styles.
YG: It’s been a while since we sang upbeat, fun hip hop melody, we had fun recording the MV.
HC: It’s not just suits, there are hip hop style bad boy costumes as well, we show many faces I think.

Q: Was there any funny episodes while filming the MV? 

DH: For our schedule, we filmed the MV in 1 day, but we filmed, ate, filmed again, rested a bit, filmed…that sort of cycle was a bit tiring (laughs) that sort of feeling.
HC: In the MV there were little dramas for each of us so filming was interesting and fun. 
DH: Yeah, it was a new feeling. 

Q: With the release of “Excuse Me” you will have a photocard handout event right? There’s nothing like this in Korea, how did you feel after experiencing this (in Japan)?

DH: In Korea we do fan signs, but in Japan there are many people in an open space, right? It’s fun to have an event with so many fans, it’s good I think. 
YJ: It’d be nice to be able to speak Japanese more with everyone, we can only say one or two words to everyone in a short time (with photo card handout event).
HC: When the event is held in cold weather, and there are small, kid fans, it’s quite difficult for them. But really we can meet everyone so it is fun and makes good memories.

Q: Any other event or tour memories you want to share?

JU: Personally, seeing the Gundam at Odaiba made me happy. When smoke came out and it lit up, I really thought it would take off to the sky (laughs).
HC: But it was only that (laughs), I was looking forward to it moving more.
JU: I’ve always been a fan of Japanese anime, but seeing it on TV at the time, it’s a very surreal feeling. 
YG: In Osaka at a sports centre (Round One, it has karaoke, bowling and other sports areas and has locations throughout Japan) was fun. We heard about this place from local people, but in Korea there is no single location to do all these sports. I think it’s be good if Korea had more places like this. Soccer, basketball, ping pong, and the batting centre. It was surreal being able to do all these sports in one building, I’m envious. 

Q: Lastly, each of you please tell us what to listen for in “Excuse Me.” 

YG: We always sang it at concerts, so fans are familiar with this song, but of course Japanese versions of songs are easier for Japanese fans to sing I think, so it’ll be good if you have fun.
Zelo: We did our best for the new choreography in the MV, so I’ll be happy if you come to love this song.
HC: Listening to “Excuse Me” is really fun, but it’s fun seeing us sing it you know. So please look forward to us on the stage.
JU: Like Himchan-hyung, I think seeing us preform “Excuse Me” on stage is the best. Also if I can show my image change on stage (laughs).
YJ: The melody is easy, it’s a song everyone can sing easily I think. The lyrics are fun too, so if you can enjoy singing it’d be good. 
DH: With this Japanese version there are more parts we can connect with, and we are showing our current, best cool image, so please look forward to our promotions.

IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT SALES
Oricon will no longer count overseas orders from hmv, yesasia, cdjapan etc. as they wanted to keep the figures relevant for domestic purchases only.

Please purchase B.A.P's new Japanese Single "Excuse Me" from your local blogshops as they will usually get a Japanese supplier to buy it in Japan and ship it to them. Alternatively if you know someone in Japan who can buy it from the local stores (that report to oricon) and ship the CD out to you, that will be another option to support B.A.P!

Another suggested option is to use Japanese Deputy services / forwarders like:

If you have no way to buy locally or ask a Japanese friend to buy for you, please buy the CD on Yesasia, HMV or CDJapan to at least help B.A.P to keep producing music!

  19. If the single member cards are the "event tickets" used for entering the event, then what are the "present tickets" and are they good for anything? ahha Japanese event rules make me so nervous haha It feels like they are always spelling out rules for obvious things. For some reason this always make me nervous, as if there was a chance I could accedentally break a rule :S
