INTERVIEWS WITH K-POP STARS : 무대 위의 아이돌 (영문판)[Paperback]
2013년 9월 9일 이후 누적수치입니다.
It is easier than ever to find fans from all over the world copying the performances of K-Pop idols. More and more attention is given to K-Pop artists for their vigorous dancing and acting along to their lyrics on stage. But it has not been as easy to find out what they are thinking when preparing their performance or while they are on the stage. After exploring the story behind the experts in the K-Pop industry and idols who create and produce their own music, journalist Park Hee A in her third book has turned her focus to idols who put on a unique performance based on the identity they each formed in their past. INTERVEIWS WITH K-POP STARS is a story of the effort, passion, and future of five young artists, and also a record of present day K-Pop in all its glory.
First the "recording studio" and now the "dance studio"
A book on present-day K-POP idols
What would be a better way to get a glimpse into the most active groups in the K-Pop industry today? Having provided insight into the "recording studio" rather than the "performance" through her work in IDOL'S STUDIO, Park Hee A turns her journalistic focus onto the "dance studio" as though it was all part of the plan.
J-HOPE, LEO, HOSHI, CHUNG HA, LEE CHAE YEON
What does the life they picture as performers really look like?
The interviewee list, ranging from the most popular K-Pop boy group to a recently formed girl group, also constitutes an overarching report of the lives of K-Pop performers today. It includes J-Hope, main dancer in the group BTS, which received the Top Social Artist and Top Duo/ Group prize at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards; LEO, a member of the so-called "concept idol" group VIXX and current musical actor and soloist; HOSHI, leader of the performance unit out of the three units in SEVENTEEN; CHUNG HA, a successful solo singer who debuted as the 11th member of I.O.I in the Mnet program Produce 101 Season 1; and LEE CHAE YEON, a member of girl group IZ*ONE which was formed on Produce 48 and maintains a huge fan base in Korea and Japan. But there is more to their lives than can be explained by their achievements.
More than just a youth success story
K-Pop performers' effort, and fate
"How lucky to succeed at a young age." This might be the immediate response, seeing them in the spotlight just entering their twenties. But they matter-of-factly lay out their passion on stage, their affection for their teams, their self-care routine, and ultimately what method they chose in earning their success. "Storytelling," which has now become one of the most important keywords in the Korean idol industry, shows its true power in this book of interviews in a most sincere way. The storytelling of the five stars and their respective groups comes together with the music created from the "idol's studio" and the performance from INTERVIEWS WITH K-POP STARS, taking on new meaning. One of them calls the journey a challenge, another explains it a lapse of time, and another says it is a "fate" that needs to be overcome. Such are the differing views of the people on the K-Pop stage.

On the day of publication, I was having dinner with the publishing team when I jokingly suggested, "Since this book is called IDOL'S STUDIO, maybe the next one should be called IDOL'S DANCE STUDIO on performers with distinct personalities…"
LEE CHAE YEON: When you're in Produce 48, that's the whole world right there. From the outside it looks so small, but from the inside it feels huge. I thought it was everything. While I was in there, being sad felt like the world was falling apart. Being happy felt like I was conquering the world.
LEE CHAE YEON: My dance may have been first up in the IZ*ONE performance, but the idea was to relay that energy to the next person, and to the rest of the team. I'm nothing without IZ*ONE, and I hope that shows in my dance.
From within the group that challenged the conventional belief that men should look manly and male groups should look ambitious, HOSHI with his playful gestures always took up an important role as a performer.
HOSHI: We tried to use the sofa in different ways, rather than limiting it to one use. We wanted the audience to go, "So that's what the sofa was for," and then be taken aback and say, "Oh, there's another way to do it." We tried to come up with as many ideas as possible.
CHUNG HA: I don't really appreciate having to beat other people, or the idea of ploughing through, overcoming, or winning something that lies ahead. When it enters my head that this is a competition while I'm dancing, I stop hearing the music.
Throne. Dress uniform. Sash. And a female idol reluctant to send her man home now that it's already midnight - it is a picture of authority that would only have matched a male idol in the past.
LEO: "On and On" left… an impact… and it still takes up a large part of the overall VIXX narrative. Ever since that song came out, we've been focusing solely on our concept throughout the album-making process.
LEO: At the end of the day, it's LEO as a person and not LEO as the main vocalist of VIXX that should stand out. The audience won't excuse me, saying, "Oh, he's a dancing vocalist." They will either think, "He's good," or "He sucks."
So to him, he did not exist as one confident person in the spotlight, but as one confident part of the team. In a counterintuitive way, that was the very mindset that anchored him as the Bangtan Boys' hope today.
J-HOPE: Saving energy doesn't mean slacking in the performance. It takes the right amount of control. You need to push and pull in the right moments. I focus energy not just on my dance but when interacting and communicating with my fans.
