Extract from the magazine interview:

- Over the past 4 years, fans have continued to cheer me on but I havent done anything for them. I always feel sorry towards them.

- ‘Somebody Else’ is a difficult song. It would be a bit too much if I had to keep singing it (laughs). I’m kidding but the key is low at the beginning and the key is raised later on in the song. I think I havent had a song up til now where there has been such a big difference in the key

[NEWS] How Did Se7en and JYP's Collaboration Happen?

As we reported earlier, Se7en’s new album will be a collaboration between JYP and Se7en. Teasers were shown showing JYP playing the piano, then being joined by Se7en. Se7en also released the new mini album tracklist. This is the first time that JYP Entertainment and YG Entertainment will be working together.

So how did the two rival companies work with each other? It looks like SBS K-Pop Star and a dinner together made it happen! According to representatives, JYP and YG became closer through SBS K-Pop Star. Se7en, JYP, and YG had dinner together and that is where the project was hatched.

Both YG and JYP representatives stated, “Collaboration projects like this can always happen because all three companies (SM, YG, and JYP) are open to the idea of new projects.”

In other news, Sandara Park also wrote about the teaser for Se7en and JYP’s “When I Can’t Sing” on her me2day. She wrote on January 29, “Did you see the Se7en teaser? The song really gets to your heart. I already heard the song and have seen the music video. It gives me the shivers. I am anticipating it so much! Se7en is the best! How am I going to wait until February 1?”

Lyrics+Translation (based on the teaser)

내가 모든걸 잃어도 내가 인기가 떨어져도

더이상 노래를 못하고 다른 직업을 가져도

나라는 이유만으로 나 계속 사랑해줄수있니

Even if I lose everything

Even if my popularity drops

Even if I cant sing anymore and have another occupation

Just for the reason that I am me, can you still continue to love me?

[News] YG Se7en makes comeback with JYP Park Jin Young’s song

Singer Se7en is making a comeback after one and a half years with JYP entertainment Park Jin Young’s song ‘When I can’t sing/Even if I can’t sing’.

Se7en and Park Jin Young’s collaboration is JYP’s first project of 2012 and is the first time for YG entertainment to have an artist carry out activities with a JYP song. The collaboration of the 2 entertainment companies who have been leading trends in the music industry has already gained much attention.

For this project, related persons from both companies kept it top secret to prevent information from leaking out. This was a surprise prepared by Se7en, who is making a comeback after a long time, for his fans.

Park Jin Young’s ‘When I can’t sing/Even if I can’t sing’ will be Se7en’s title track from his mini album which will be released 1st February. On the 29th, during the broadcast of SBS Inkigayo, a teaser video of Park Jin Young and Se7en singing by a piano was revealed as a surprising, attracting much interest.

In the interview, he mentions an episode from when he was still a YG trainee. One day he shows up at the YG office to find that there is no one there. He is taken back and rang one of the staff from YG who said “Oh, sorry, we forgot about you.” It turns out that the whole of YG including staff, dancers etc went to the beach to play. Even though he was the youngest then, he felt lonely (laughs).

[Thoughts on releasing a new album]

It’s been awhile since I’ve released anything in Japan and with the new release of my mini album, SOMEBODY ELSE, i’m very happy. Since it’s an album created as gratitude towards the fans that have waited for a long time and something they were really looking forward to. I’m very grateful that they showed a lot of support!

[The concept of the NEW MINI ALBUM]

The concept of the mini album as a whole… because it’s the long time awaited released album, I thought that showing off a new SE7EN was important. I chose different and various styles of songs. There are slow to up tempo songs and various songs in it. So that album has sort of a new se7en feeling I believe.

[About the NEW MINI ALBUM]

Since this album has been released after more than 4 years… 4 and a half years. For me, and even for the Japanese fans, I think it is has become the most important album. Through this album… the feelings felt until now.. the 4 year period, the distance between the fans and I became slowly farther and farther but through this album, we can become closer and become one. It has become that album so for me I think it has that meaning.

[NEWS] 2NE1, Big Bang, & Se7en send their Lunar New Year greetings

Gaining much recognition world wide the past year, the artists of YG Entertainment discussed with OSEN their dreams and visions for 2012, as well as sending their Lunar New Year greetings to fans.

Last year, 2NE1 received spotlight from not only within Korea, but from all over the world. Examples include their special coverage on the English network BBC, as well as their win on MTV Iggy as the ‘Best New Band in the World’. Their comeback within Korea also garnered much attention for their unique and fierce style showcased through songs like “It Hurts”, “Lonely”, and “I am the Best”.

The members of 2NE1 greeted their fans for the Lunar New Year, stating, “Hello! What’s up 2NE1! Have a blessed Lunar New Years. We are planning great things for this upcoming year, so please look forward to that. In 2012, we will work to become an even better 2NE1. We thank you for always cheering us on, and please be healthy!”

Their labelmate, Big Bang, also had a wild ride of a year in 2011. They have entered 2012 with renewed vigor by preparing a comeback filled with unique and powerful performances.

As 2012 is the year of the dragon, G-Dragon and Taeyang (both born in the year of the dragon), spoke as the representatives of the group. G-Dragon stated, “We will work hard to live up to our group name, Big Bang. We will do our best with the heart of a new group”.

Taeyang added, “We will become the best in the world. Please continue to watch us.”

Se7en, one of the pillars of YG Entertainment, recently released a single album in Japan for the first time after a 4 year hiatus of promotions in Japan. This single drew significant attention for reaching #1 on Tower Records‘ pre-order list, as well as entering the Top 10 on the Oricon Singles Chart.

He stated, “I am beginning new activities on the New Year. Since it has been a long time since I met my fans, I will do my best in all my activities. Please have a blessed New Years and please continue to watch my activities this year!”

YG Entertainment has planned an unusually large number of new releases this year. Se7en has already released his Japanese single and Big Bang is planning large scale promotions for their upcoming comeback. Talented soloist Gummy is also planning a new release for the first half of the year. Finally, YG Entertainment’s much anticipated new idol groups are awaiting their debut in 2012. These groups, which include ‘Super Star K2′s Kim Eun Bi and Kang Seung Yoon, are part of a great year planned by YG Entertainment

[Translation] 120118 Oricon Style Special Interview Part 2

Q: In this album, there are many songs about sad love. What is your ideal love?

A: …….

Q: Oh, you’re suddenly quiet (laughs). Do you find talking about relationships annoying?

A: No, that’s not the case. I’m an adult man, so I would like of course a happy relationship. Dont people around us all not want a sad relationship?

Q: Of course. But in ‘Somebody Else’, the protagonist cannot tell the other person his heart and regrets it. Are you someone who speaks your heart?

A: Ah, i dont know. Depending on the situation at that point in time.. (Suddenly becomes tense) Somebody Else is not about me but about fans who have come to like somebody else, telling them “Careful! Something is going to happen! Danger!” (laughs)

Q: (laughs) You dont lie about your own heart right?

A: (laughs) Sometimes I do

Q: So they are white lies, considering the other person right? Do you also lie with bad intentions? [like opposite of white lies]

A: Both types of lies (laughs) represents my true heart (laughs)

Q: Se7en ssi is an interesting person

A: No, I’m a cool person!

Q: For sure, you’re cool

A: Sorry, that was over the top. I am really very sorry.

Q: (Next question I’m not totally sure but the gist is, that the interviewer says that when he performs he gives off a different charisma but when he’s talking, he becomes interesting)

A: That’s the problem (laughs)

Q: Oh? What do you mean?

A: I sing and dance in a cool way but then when I start talking, I become comical (laughs)

Q: But i think that is Se7en’s attraction

A: But that is only in Japan. In Korea, I talk in a mature and cool way but in Japan, I suddenly become a primary school kid (laughs). Because the words I use and the tone I speak in sounds like a child’s, I have no choice.

Q: So the Se7en in Japan is not the real Se7en

A: No, to be honest, the Se7en in Japan is my real personality. I want to be funny and the fact that what I say can make people laugh is great.

Q: When you talk, it feels as if you’re talking to fans and everyone

A: I believe that’s the attraction in live. I would like to communicate with fans and people who I have not been able to meet. When I sing, I am also not just singing by myself but with everyone. I want to share more heart.

Q: So its going to be the YG concert soon. It’s been nearly 5 years for you.

A: I am and everyone is really looking forward to it. Because there are interesting performances and collaborations by YG family that have never been seen before, I hope everyone is looking forward to it.

Q: Everyone in the YG family is famous for getting along with each other like real siblings. Did you give your younger siblings any advice on coming to Japan?

A: If i’m at the office and a member from Big Bang or 2ne1 ask me or want to discuss with me, I do [talk to them]

Q: Coming to Japan after a long time, is there any Japanese food that you want to eat?

A: COCO壱番 Curry chicken (I think he said he had 200g 3 times?). I only finished eating it the day before yesterday

Q: What other Japanese food do you like?

A: As long as it’s yummy, whether it’s Japanese food or Korean food I like it. I eat alot.

Q: Do you cook yourself?

A: Not really…. if it’s there, then I will make it. I can cook well! But when I was in the US, everyday I would make sandwiches or stew. But because I find it troublesome to clean up afterwards, I dont make it anymore (laughs)

Q: So, what are you really into now?

A: Maybe golf? Lately I really like it and I’m really into it

Q: What is your best score?

A: That’s a secret (laughs). Even just being at the golf course is good because the air is fresh and I can recharge myself. The walking is healthy, I enjoy playing and the food I eat afterwards is yummy (laughs)

Q: Lastly, what are your goals for this year?

A: Commemorating my return to Japan, I want to perform live as a solo artist, and I want to meet my Japanese fans and everyone! I want to make my songs explosive with this in my heart this year!

Korean lesson~ today we learn about the lunar new year in Korea. First of all, the Korean word for lunar new year ‘Seollal’ – it seems it is better to pronounce it with the tongue at the back of the mouth. Because this year’s Seollal is on the 23rd January, and is connected to the weekend, there are many people who started making their way back to their hometown in Korea from yesterday already. Special Korean style bows are made to Grandpa and Grandma and money is given to children. This is similar to how it is in Japan
