Hey LUKIES! It is currently spring in Korea and with the blooming flowers, our hearts bloomed for the Special Guys.. Who? Its LUNAFLY of course!!
So we were in Seoul some time ago and we managed to visit LUNAFLY’s entertainment company, Nega Network. The walk to their office building was no joke.. We had to walk about 20 minutes up and down the hill to get there but all the sweat was worth it as we were greeted by cheerful Yun, practically at their doorstep! Then Yun brought us into their practice room where both Sam and Teo were already waiting for us.[caption id="attachment_23429" align="aligncenter" width="600"] LUNAFLY talks about their new album[/caption]
LUNAFLY is a talented all male trio which consists of Sam Carter (Sam) – leader, vocalist and guitarist, Shin Taeho (Teo) – vocalist, drummer, pianist and Han Seung Yun (Yun) – vocalist, guitarist and maknae (youngest) of the group. They recently came back with their 1st Mini Album, 특별한 남자 (Special Guy) and being the lovely guys that they are, amid their busy schedule preparing for their South America shows, to have a chat with K-Popped!
Read on and see what they have to say about their new song Special Guy, addictions.. and Teo as a boat?
Tell us about your latest comeback..
Sam: We came back with 특별한 남자 which means Special Guy, or a unique guy. Its a little bit different than what we did before. Its been a lot of fun promoting and performing the song on stage and TV promotions. Its about us as unique guys trying to show off our charisma and charms.
Your current song is more pop-ish than acoustic..
Teo: When we started out we did start with acoustic music but we were always keen on doing lots of different kind of musics. As artist, we would like to expand and try different kind of things. It doesn’t mean that we won’t be doing acoustic music in the future, because that is the basic for us.[caption id="attachment_23430" align="aligncenter" width="400"] Sam[/caption]
A normal day for LUNAFLY would be..
Sam: Its different everyday, if we have a music show, we’d wake up at 3am, salon for hair and make up at 4am, TV rehearsal at 6am – its very difficult to sing at 6 in the morning. If its a music show, it takes the whole day. Like right now, we are preparing for our trip to South America, so every morning we come here, to this practice room and practice all day.
LUNAFLY on stage and off stage..
Teo: Almost the same.. On music shows, you can’t really see our personality but in concerts we are pretty much ourselves on stage.
Sam does radio shows, Yun will be acting in a drama soon, while Teo..
Teo: For me there’s nothing planned yet, but I would like to try everything. But if I had to choose, it would be DJ-ing!
LUNAFLY is most confident of..
Yun: My voice..
Teo: My height.. (Sam: Apart from when we go to modelling shows, then we become short.. haha)
Sam: We’ve never had this question before! Well, I’m confident in writing songs.[caption id="attachment_23427" align="aligncenter" width="400"] Teo[/caption]
If LUNAFLY goes to a deserted island, which member would LUNAFLY bring and 3 things..
Yun: I think Teo will die first! Haha… I would bring Sam, a guitar, computer games and water (Sam: Is there electricity there?? and there’s water everywhere!) – more laughter among the members
Teo: I won’t take anyone, it would be uncomfortable with the members around. The 3 things I’d bring is shotgun, fire, and water.
Sam: (Mumbling alone – Teo would die by himself) I would pick Teo, because he is big, so I’ll use him as a boat. (Laughter by Yun). I would bring 3 balloons, tie it on Teo and ride him on the ocean. (Yun: Teo would die.. Sam: He won’t die because I would hold up his face so he can breath, just like the old boats with the face at the front, like a pirate ship, it will be Teo’s face.)
LUNAFLY’s current addiction..
Yun: Clash of the Clans..
Sam: I’m addicted to chocolate, Pocari Sweat, and peach drinks.. I have it everyday and it’s not cheap.. For chocolates, I like Kit Kat Chunky, Snickers – Almond and normal ones, MnMs – both peanut and normal ones and jelly beans
Teo: I’m addicted to spending money[caption id="attachment_23428" align="aligncenter" width="400"] Teo[/caption]
As a leader, a member that troubles Sam..
They’re both troublesome.. haha, no they’re both very good. They are good guys and they work hard.
Acting for Yun..
Acting is a new experience for me, which I enjoyed and I hope to do more of it. (Sam: And he’s really good, he has a natural born talent for it)
Teo wants to try..
Being a food fighter. A competition where you eat the most.
