RAP MONSTER  is this kind of person!

SUGA:  He’s really great

Jungkook: monster

Jin: The baby dinosaur Dolly. He shakes his tail an crushes things (laughs)

Jimin: In fact, he gets hurt easily.

Q1: Real name.

Kim Namjoon.

Q2: Hometown.

Seoul, Ilsan.

Q3: Nickname and how do you want to be called by the Japanese fans.

In Korea (taking into account how it’s read Rap Monster’s name in Korean) they call me “Rapmon” so in Japan I’m also Rapmon!

Q4: An artist or song that has influenced you.

EPIK HIGH, Eminem, Kanye West, NAS.

Q5: Your dream when you were young.

It’s not a special dream, until the 5th year of primary school I dreamed about being a security guard.

Q6: A word you like (motto).

 “This is also going to past”, since it doesn’t matter if you’re having a bad time/period, it always pasts. Long time ago it was “If I want to do it, I can” but there also a lot of things that even if you want to do you can’t… (laughs).

Q7: If you were to represent/express BTS now with a color, what color would it be?

Gray. All the members are really nice kids but, in order to show a powerful image we need to wear black clothes so everyone wears gray. I don’t know how will this subtle color change but I think that next time we’ll be able to show our own colors.

Q8: What music have you recently been listening to?

Dynamic Duo.

Q9: Something you do every day without fail.

Write a diary and look back and organize it.

Q10: A happening that made you cry recently?

Since I decided not to cry on our debut showcase or on the first broadcasts, the day of the debut showcase, in the afternoon, the team members who I grew up and developed with were crying… so in the end I was lured and my tears fell so I panicked (laughs).

Q11: When you are in trouble/worried who do talk to?

Suga-hyung. We’ve been living together for 3 years so we’re close and there are also lots of times when he has helped me. When it comes to the younger ones it’s Jimin.

Q12: What do you want to do if you had a lover?

I want to make a song together and sing it.

Q13: A member that seems like he’d have a girlfriend older than him and a member that seems like he’d have one younger than him.

Jungkook really seems like the type that would say ‘noona~”.

SUGA fits to be one liking younger people.

Q14: if you had to compare the members to non-humans, what would they be?

Jimin → Geodude (pokemon).

V → an alien.

Jungkook → Chikorita (pokemon)

And the others… I don’tknow (laughs)!

Q15: If you had the power of talking to non-humans, to what would you like to talk to?

I want to ask what they think about the necessities I normally use. Clothes and brushes and so…

Rap Monster. Real name Kim Namjoon. Born on September 12th 1994. During my underground days, I used the stage name Runch Randa. I got that name from the character my friend (who introduced me to rap) and I were taking care of in Maple Story. I read lots of books and all sorts of writings while writing rap lyrics to increase my vocabulary. It didn’t really work out after debuting though, because we’re so busy. But if I ever get an idea or remember good words, I always right them down on a notepad. At one point, my nickname was “Dance Prodigy" - I was so bad at dancing that my dance teacher and the company staff called me that. The difference between the things I’m good at and the things I’m bad at is extremely obvious. I thought “Ah, that’s not my speciality. Everyone has their own thing, and there are just some things you shouldn’t do." about dancing. But turns out, it wasn’t impossible. Nowadays I’m told that I actually dance like a normal person. The members might not agree with that, though. (laughs) Although I don’t show it, I’m really nervous on stage. I used to watch people on TV walk out from behind LED doors on Mnet <M! Countdown> so actually doing it was fascinating and nerve-racking. I once went on stage without my microphone pack so I started fretting about that also. But when I got on stage, I got the feeling that I was in charge of the place. I think you need that kind of mentality when doing hip-hop. Because I have a fierce image, I often think “I’m the best here." But unlike what you see, I have a shy personality in real life. The members tell me that there’s a big gap from me on stage and off-stage. (Suga: On stage, he wears sunglasses and has a powerful image but he actually likes cute things. He keeps the <Pocket Monster> ball he received at a fansign on his bed.) I have a habit of singing loudly at night in the dorm. I always sing so I never thought that it’d affect the members. I realized that after a while but the members never said anything - probably because I’m the leader and I was the first member in the dorm. (laughs) I think I’ve improved by 7, 80% now. I always check the current affairs and general topics in the news. It’s easy to neglect things happening around the world because of our busy schedules. I don’t like that so I check the news. If I ever have a girlfriend who isn’t an idol, I want to write them a song that apologizes for being an idol. Imagine how much the girl would dislike the fact that I’m an idol, since I’m always busy and because there are so many other fans who like me even though she’s there. I would like her to know that ‘I’m a much better person than you think.’ It’s because no matter what others do or say, I know myself the best. Also, even though this may make me sound arrogant, I want to say that I haven’t shown half of half of my abilities. I have a lot of charms and hope to show them in the future.
