(INTERVIEW) 180110 – 10Asia – MXM

(T/N: Repetitive intro paragraphs are omitted.)

The rookie group, MXM, commented, “We feel proud now that we get royalty.” This was said at a recent interview with 10Asia at Brand New Music’s company.

Kim Donghyun, who showed his potential as a singer-songwriter through placing his self-composed song, ‘I JUST DO’, on their debut album, expressed his hopes by saying, “I feel a happiness from having other people hear a song that I’ve made. I hope that there can be a lot of opportunities to show my own musical color in 2018 as well. I want to show many music genres.” He added on, “I turned 21 this year. I spent last year busily at the age of 20, so I hope to become more mature this year.”

Lim Youngmin, who turned 24, brought out laughter as he showed a proud smile and answered, “I received allowance from my parents up until last year. Now, I receive royalty and personally pay for taxes. It feels different. It feels like I’m building up the strength to live on my own.” He showed a reliable side by saying,“Now that I’m starting a career, I have more responsibility towards my actions and I feel like I am becoming an adulting.” 

MXM’s Lim Youngmin revealed that he contacts Wanna One’s Park Woojin often. Lim Youngmin and Park Woojin are colleagues under the same company, Brand New Music. With Kim Donghyun and Lee Daehwi, the two of them participated on Mnet ‘Produce 101 Season’ and gained popularity. Through that, Park Woojin and Lee Daehwi went onto debut as the project group, Wanna One, while Lim Youngmin and Kim Donghyun debuted through Brand New Music’s unit group, MXM. Although they are promoting under different groups, they still hold close relationships with each other.

Lim Youngmin commented, “The calls with Woojin usually consist of almost meaningless topics.” He added, “I had a missed call from last Christmas, so I called him back, but he suddenly said, ‘What’. I told him ‘You called me first’, but he said ‘I don’t know why I called’. That day was actually my birthday, so I think he called to congratulate me.”

He continued by saying, “We didn’t have the time to contact each other at the beginning of our debuts, because we were busy. However, since we have more time now, we contact each other more often. We didn’t have the opportunity to meet last time because our promotions didn’t overlap with Wanna One. I want to see them more often while doing future promotions.”

Along with Wanna One, MXM didn’t hold back on showing their affection towards their ‘Produce 101 Season 2’ colleagues. Kim Donghyun brought out laughter by saying, “I saw JBJ’s (Kim) Donghan often during our last promotions. We joked saying that ‘We’re tired of seeing each other, because we see each other so often’, but I was happy to be able to promote together with a friend.” He showed his thanks by saying, “Since I’m from Daejeon, I don’t really have friends in Seoul to talk about my problems with. Even if I had things I was upset with or worries, I had to keep it in, but I talk about it with Donghan a lot lately now.” 

Continuing on from last year, there are many comebacks of ‘Produce 101 Season 2’ singers in the first month of the new year. Along with MXM, who are revealing their 2nd mini album <MATCH UP>, there will be or have been the comebacks of N.Flying, JBJ, Rainz, The East Light, and Jeong Sewoon. Kim Donghyun showed his anticipation in promoting with his colleagues by saying, “We all spent time like family when filming for ‘Produce 101 Season 2’. Even if we see each other after a long time, it feels comfortable as if I’m meeting my hometown friends.”

(LYRICS) 객관적인 시선

KOREAN

친구들은 나보고 눈이 낮대
근데 그 말에 동의 못해 반대
널 보면 나는 날아갈 것 같아
그래 난 그래
Yeah 어떤 옷을 입어도 넌 beautiful
Oh yeah 내 눈에만 그런 게 아냐
내 객관적인 시선으로 봐도
너는 예뻐
나는 느낄 수가 있어 너라면 모두 다
객관적인 시선 시선으로 봐도
예뻐 예뻐
객관적인 시선 시선으로 봐도
예뻐 예뻐
가만히 쳐다보고 있자 하니
네 눈에 비친 내가 초라해
정말로 많은 사람들을 봐왔지만
이런 경험 처음이네
넌 내게 모욕감을 줬지만
경의를 표해 너에게
나를 볼 때마다
매일 웃어주는 너에게
하루 종일 나의 관심 안엔
불 보듯 뻔해 오직 너만 화제가 돼
넌 너무 완벽한데 객관적으로
누구보다 제일 예쁜 것 같아
알고 있잖아 너도
말을 자꾸 하지 않아도
너의 미몬 끊임없이 선전해
굳이 광고하지 않아도
내 객관적인 시선으로 봐도
너는 예뻐
나는 느낄 수가 있어 너라면 모두 다
객관적인 시선 시선으로 봐도
예뻐 예뻐
객관적인 시선 시선으로 봐도
예뻐 예뻐
해가 저물고 밤이 될 때쯤
널 데려다주는 시간이 올 때쯤에
까만 바탕 위에 적힌 별들조차
배경이 될 만큼 너무 예뻐 너가
화장을 했든지 no make up이든지
절대로 예쁨을 감출 수가 없지 baby
밤이 돼도 여전히 우아해
입술 트니 늦게 자지 마요
좋은 꿈꿔요 baby
내 객관적인 시선으로 봐도
너는 예뻐
나는 느낄 수가 있어 너라면 모두 다
객관적인 시선 시선으로 봐도
예뻐 예뻐
객관적인 시선 시선으로 봐도
예뻐 예뻐

ENGLISH

My friends tell me that I have low standards,
but I can’t agree with that, I disagree
When I see you, I feel like I can fly
That’s right, I’m like that
Yeah, whatever you wear, you’re beautiful
Oh yeah, it’s not just in my eyes

Even when I look at you objectively,
you’re pretty
I can feel it, that if it’s you, even if everyone
Looks at you with a objective view, view
You’re pretty, pretty
Even with an objective view, view
You’re pretty, pretty

To be just looking at you,
my reflection in your eyes looks too small
Although I’ve seen so many people,
this kind of experience is my first
Although you’ve given me offense,
I show you respect
To you, who smiles everyday
whenever you see me,
You’re in my interests all day long
It’s obvious like looking at fire, only you become the topic of conversation
(T/N: wordplay because 화제 [hot topic] + 화재 [fire] have the same pronounciation)
You’re so perfect, when I look at you objectively,
I think you’re prettier than anyone else
You know it too
Even if I don’t keep saying it,
your looks show it off endlessly
Even if it’s not advertised

Even when I look at you objectively,
you’re pretty
I can feel it, that if it’s you, even if everyone
Looks at you with a objective view, view
You’re pretty, pretty
Even with an objective view, view
You’re pretty, pretty

When the sun falls and it becomes night,
around when the time comes to drop you off,
you’re so pretty to the point where
even the stars written on a black wallpaper
can become a background

Whether you wore makeup or you’re no makeup,
you can never hide your beauty, baby
Even when it becomes night, you’re still elegant
Your lips will chap, so don’t sleep late
Have a good dream, baby

Even when I look at you objectively,
you’re pretty
I can feel it, that if it’s you, even if everyone
Looks at you with a objective view, view
You’re pretty, pretty
Even with an objective view, view
You’re pretty, pretty
