Akdong Musician Laughs Off Negative Comments Regarding Looks
Having taken over the K-pop charts with its debut album, Akdong Musician posed with models Nam Ju Hyuk and Lee Ha Eun for magazine High Cut published on June 19.
Nam Ju Hyuk and Lee Ha Eun are new models who also featured in Akdong Musician’s music video for 200% and Give Love.
In the interview that followed the photoshoot, the Akdong Musician members shared thoughts on having the year since they appeared on K-pop Star, their way of finding inspiration for new songs, fans’ love and the negative comments.
About how things have changed in the past one year since they appeared on K-pop Star, Lee Chan Hyuk said, “I feel like I’m in a completely different world compared to one year ago. I feel like I came to a world with a whole other dimension,” and Lee Soo Hyun answered, “I didn’t even know that celebrities actually existed when I was younger. I thought they were like animated characters.”
When the topic of negative comments on internet came up, Soo Hyun said, “The only type of negative comments that I don’t get affected by are the ones about our looks. When I see the negative comments saying that we’re ugly, we say, ‘They say we’re ugly,’ ‘Yes, I think so too,’ and laugh it off.”
Having written songs based on his plentiful experiences of daily life, Chan Hyuk said, “If you can change how you think and change your environment, you can make as many songs as there are number of words. I think all words in the world can become the subject matter.”
