Q. Please tell us about the BANA village as you imagine it to be. Firstly, the rules of BANA village! Are there any rules other than “No lying”?
Baro: How about eating our meals on time?
CNU: Why are you suddenly talking about food (laugh)?! That’s not it!
Sandeul: How about eating rice instead of bread in the morning?
All: That’s not it either! (laugh)
CNU: Setting a time for our own personal time? Or have a break on one day after working 5~6 days a week.
Sandeul: Resting after we promote a new song!
Baro: It’s BANA village, but there’s no freedom at all (laugh).
Jinyoung: But it’s not just us in the village right?
Gongchan: What will be nice~?
CNU: How about having some time once a week to gather and talk?
Jinyoung: It’ll be the same as we are now if we have some time every week on the weekends to talk.
All: That’s a good idea!
Q. What would the symbolic building in BANA village?
Jinyoung: Something like a stage.
Baro: A huge building complex!
Sandeul: B1A4 house.
Baro: Sauna, mini stage, ice rink and meeting room. There’s various things and it will be about 10000 pyeong [T/N: About 30000 square metres] big.
Gongchan: 10000 pyeong?! Building it is gonna be a huge problem (laugh).
Baro: You can build whatever you want there. In other words, you don’t even have to go out (laugh). In addition, it will be able to move on ground (laugh).
Sandeul: It’s like a game (laugh).
Baro: The exterior will be filled with different signboards…
CNU: Wouldn’t it be nice if the exterior was like Howl’s Moving Castle?
Baro: Oh yes. But the moving of the building is manual!
Sandeul: Eh~ It’ll be so tiring just to move the building!
CNU: The moving of the building will be done by the person who doesn’t follow the rules. And that they have to do it alone (laugh).
Gongchan: Move that huge building all alone?!
CNU: Ah the moving will also be done by the overweight people… (laugh)
Sandeul: How could you~!
Q. What B1A4 song would you choose as the theme song of BANA village?
Jinyoung: Maybe it should be ‘O.K’. No matter who you are, it is OK for you to come into the village if you wish to.
Gongchan: I like CNU hyung’s solo song ‘Drunk on Music’. Everyone can be cheerful!
Baro: ‘This Time is Over’. We cannot not move, this location is going to be over. We will listen to this song as we move (laugh).
Sandeul: Moving again!? (laugh). With the meaning of BANA village = peace, I will choose Only One.
Jinyoung: Ah then I will change to ‘Who Am I’! With the meaning of finding yourself after coming to the village.
CNU: Then I will choose ‘O.K’. It has a quick pace so it is an enjoyable song that makes one cheerful. It will add energy to our lives.
Q. When will be the biggest event of BANA village? What would you do?
Jinyoung: Of course it would be a party. We will gather everyone in the village and have a celebration where we will sing and have a BBQ.
Baro: You’ll be receiving money for it right? (laugh)
Sandeul: We need to earn money. This village is in financial difficulties (laugh).
Baro: Let’s just receive money for parking!
Sandeul: Yes, otherwise we will all have to stay at home (laugh).
Jinyoung: The event day will be on our debut day, 23 April.
Baro: How about on the 22nd? It’s the day before, so we can do it over the span of 2 days 1 night.
Gongchan: That’s god!
Baro: We’ll do the main party on the 22nd, and rest on the 23rd. The venue will of course be at B1A4 house!
Sandeul: It’ll be big enough since it’s like 10000 pyeong. Even a sports event would be possible!
Q. Please tell us about what you and the members have to do in BANA village, like your roles or occupations.
Sandeul: I’ll be the doctor! I will be able to learn about even the tiniest things in the village as I talk to the patients. I want to become that kind of person. As for the members, Jinyoung hyung will be farming. CNU hyung will bring lunch to Jinyoung hyung who is working at the farm. Baro will be playing next to the field… Gongchan will be the scarecrow! And I will be the doctor watching all of that.
Gongchan: You’re too much, saying that I’m the scarecrow.
Sandeul: No it’s a really important role! You have to look over the farm with crops.
Baro: It’ll be nice if Gongchan was the policeman looking over the village. Someone who doesn’t say much but is very trustable. I want to be the physical education teacher in the elementary school! I want to be run around in the nature with the children. CNU hyung will be the really manly farmer on the tractor. Usually he is like a mother, but when it comes to work, he is very manly. Jinyoung hyung will be the aunty who writes in the household accounts book in a small mart. He is usually very detailed so he will be good with the books.
Jinyoung: I cannot do the books. I can’t manage money…
Baro: That’s true (laugh). Sandeul will be the leader of the church vocal group. He will not be so much of a trustable leader, but a deliquent one who likes to chat.
Jinyoung: Sandeul will fit the role of the owner of a pizza place. Even though I think he will be stealing food as he makes it.
Sandeul: That’s the best! (laugh)
Jinyoung: Gongchan will make electronic equipment. He is smart so I think he will making good tings. CNU will be working at the samgyupsal restaurant that he has always dreamt of. Baro will become a harmonica player who travels freely all around the world. And I will be an inventor. I will create things that do not exist in this world yet.
CNU: I want to become a B1A4 fan, a BANA. I want to understand the hearts of the BANAs who cheer for us. Jinyoung will be the Minister of Environment…
Jinyoung: I don’t want that (laugh).
CNU: I’m doing it so that you’re someone of power though (laugh). Sandeul will be a scholar, because he has a serious side to him different from what you see him to be. Baro will be playing the role of Trash from drama Reply 1994, so that he can release whatever he suppressed when he acted as Binggrae (laugh). Gongchan will be a 5 year old kid. I hope he can forget all his troubles from now and become a child who plays without any worries.
Gongchan: Ahaha. I want to become a kindergaten teacher because I like children. It will be hard to become anything more than an elementary school teacher so I think a kindergarten teacher will be best. Jinyoung hyung will be the security guard at that kindergaten. Even though he is very detailed, he is filled with a lot of ‘holes’ in his daily life so instead of letting him work hard in politicis I want to have him work with me at the kindergaten. CNU is good at cooking, so he’ll be the cook at the kindergaten. Sandeul will be the clothes shop owner who will design the uniforms of my kindergaten. He is filled with a lot of unique ideas, so I think he will make cute clothes that will go well with the children. Baro will drive the school bus, because he will tell stories so that the children are not bored.
Q. Let’s talk about B1A4’s daily lives. You got first place on music broadcasts with your new Korean song ‘LONELY’. Please tell us about the song that Jinyoung composed.
Jinyoung: I’m thinking about you who is not around, as I eat my food and watch movies. It is a song written with that kind of feelings. It’s about the sad feelings of people who have broken up with their girlfriends or boyfriends.
Gongchan: I thought it was a good song when I first heard it.
Sandeul: It is also a song that fits well with this season.
Q. You have a concert in Seoul in February, and an arena tour in Japan in April. What is your goal for 2014?
Baro: In the first half of the year, we have an arena tour and we will be releasing an album. We are always aiming to change the ‘Asia’ in our tour to become a ‘world’ tour.
Sandeul: Me too. I want to become a singer that not only receives love in Asia but everyone in the world!
Jinyoung: We may have various events and goals, but the biggest aim is to have all the members’ minds as one and achieve all the other goals together.
Gongchan: I want to challenge various things this year too, without anything preventing me from doing so.
CNU: Last year we met many fans at our concert, but we only managed to release 1 album. I want to release more albums this year, and show everyone more songs.
