Fei

Birthday: April 27th, 1987

Nationality: Chinese

Height/Weight: 164 cm/ 46 kg

Languages: Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean

Prior Works: Chinese TV Show (You Will Grow Prettier If You Dance), Model for 2010 China Samsung Electronics Anycall CF

 

 

Question: Were there any episodes during the album recording?

Answer:  It was during the recording for “Bad Girl Good Girl.” My voice is a bit thin, but Park Jin Young PD kept telling me to sing louder. There was a time when I recorded while doing “popping” dance moves. It made me sing louder. Hehe

 

Question:  What do you remember most from album preparations?

Answer: When Park Jin Young PD was in Korea, I invited him to my place and made him Chinese food since my specialty is cooking. People who try my food tell me it is really good. Park Jin Young ate all the food without leaving any leftovers and asked for more. Because there was not enough, I was regretful. PD-nim, I will make more for you next time!

 

Question: What was your first impression for each of the members?

Answer: It’s already been three years since I’ve first met Jia, but when I met her, I felt that she would be a good dancer. Suzy gave off a very cute and pretty vibe and since I have a slightly darker skin than others, I was jealous of her white skin. Min seemed to be overfilled with talent.

 

 

Jia

Birthday: February 3rd, 1989

Nationality: Chinese

Height/Weight: 164 cm/ 45 kg

Languages: Mandarin, Korean

Prior Works: Chinese TV Show (You Will Grow Prettier If You Dance), Model for 2010 China Samsung Electronics Anycall CF

 

 

Question:  What do you remember most from album preparations?

Answer: One of the dance points in “Bad Girl Good Girl” is to lie down on the ground and sway our legs side to side in a cute manner. However, because we were supposed to get down abruptly, the members got hurt. We got a lot of bruises due to friction between the rough floor and our knees. Because we practiced so much, we learned the trick on not getting hurt anymore.

 

Question: Who is one artist you want to take after?

Answer: I really like Rihanna, to the extent of being a crazy fan. Her new album came out well, so please listen to it. Rihanna recently had a concert in Korea at COEX and I sat in the front screaming and cheering her on. I want to be able to capture the audience like her.

 

Question: Is there any secret diet method miss A abides by?

Answer: When I was in high school, I wanted to be skinny, so for two weeks I only ate water and vegetables. I did lose weight, but it was very tiring. It’s not something I would want to recommend. Hehe

 

Question: What was your first impression for each of the members?

Answer: Fei had the “oldest sister” vibe while Min seemed to be a very cheerful and fun friend. She is definitely the mood maker of the team. Suzy on the other hand seems to be the kind younger sister that obeys well. However, she seemed to be the person who takes care of the others despite being the youngest member.

 

 

Suzy

Birthday: October 10th, 1994

Nationality: Korean

Height/Weight: 166 cm/ 46 kg

Languages: Mandarin, Korean

Prior Works: Model for 2010 China Samsung Electronics Anycall CF

 

 

 

Question: Were there any episodes during the album recording?

Answer: We need to be able to express our feelings, but because I don’t have much experience, I took a long time during the recording. One time, I thought I did well, but Park Jin Young PD loudly said “ddang” (meaning no); all my strength disappeared.

 

Question: Is there any secret diet method miss A abides by?

Answer: I stretch my body every morning and night time. Whenever I have time, I find myself doing light stretches or exercises. I think it’s good to constantly move your body whether you’re moving in a car, standing, or sitting.

 

Question: What was your first impression for each of the members?

Answer: When I first meet Min unnie, she was wearing Ugg boots and a big hoodie and I thought it was very cute. In order to get closer, I asked her to eat with me, but because she just ate, she declined the offer. I was very flustered at the time. Now, we eat together all the time. On the other hand, I’ve seen Fei and Jia unnies ever since their trainee days. Since the two were always going back and forth from Korea to China for their broadcasting activities, I thought it was very cool. Due to this, it was a bit difficult at first to get close with them.

 

 

Min

Birthday: April 21st, 1991

Nationality: Korean

Height/Weight: 161cm/ 45 kg

Languages: Mandarin, Korean

Prior Works: Trained with JYP USA for five years/ Worked with American producer, Lil John

 

 

Question: Who is one artist you want to take after?

Answer: Beyonce. She is able to show a great performance with her unwavering live skills. I want to sing and dance well like her.

 

Question: Is there any secret diet method miss A abides by?

Answer: I was probably the member that worried about dieting most, since I really love eating. It was hard to resist, but I reduced my food intake and was determined not to overeat. The results were…good. Controlling what you eat was the hardest, but I believe it is the most effective.

 

Question: What was your first impression for each of the members?

Answer: Suzy had a very kind face. Thus, her first impression was very lovable but surprisingly, she always covered her face. After getting to know Suzy better, I realized that she can be unpredictable. This makes her very cute.

 

 

Group Interview:


 

Question: What was your first impression on “Bad Girl Good Girl?”

Answer:

Min: When I first listened to the song, the melody caught my ear and I felt that the lyrics were charming. There were some segments of the song that seemed to match my personality.

Jia: When I first heard the song, I thought to myself, “I must be the bad girl.” I think I express the “bad girl” image well through dance, but in reality, I fit the “good girl” image more. With both qualities, it was easy for me to immerse into the song.

 

Question: Besides the title track, what other song did you really like off the album?

Answer:

Min: I like track four, “Break It” most. I enjoy singing the chorus and since I was able to get this part for the song, I was happy and proud. I also think that the auto tuning was placed in the song well.

Suzy: I like the second track, “Suddenly Meet.” The trot-like rhythms seem to be perfect for a gloomy day. We were told to sing like robots during the recording, and I believe the outcome was successful.

Jia: I picked “Break It” as well, due to its exciting beats that will liven up one’s mood. Please love both “Bad Girl Good Girl” and “Break It.”

 

Question: If you were to divide the miss A members into bad girls and good girls…

Answer:

Min: We believe that Jia is the bad girl, the remaining three being good girls. This is of course for stage performances. When Jia dances, you can feel her strong charismatic force. However, off stage, Jia is possibly the most “good girl.”

Suzy: All four of us our good girls, but on stage, I think Jia and Fei unnies are the bad girls. Fei unnie has the “in your face” and sexy charms while Jia unnie is filled with charisma on stage.

 

Question: What are your thoughts and feelings on your debut?

Answer:

Min: Since we were finally able to overcome our hardships and show our skills and talents, I was very happy and anticipated our debut. We will continue showing our charms. Please look forward to it.

Suzy: My training days were shorter than my unnies, so I was a bit worried and burdened. But because they are teaching and helping me, they have given me strength. This all seems like a dream.

Jia: During my three years of training in Korea, I have experienced both good and bad times. I am glad that I have come this far, conquering any difficulties to fulfill my dreams. I want to make my parents proud for working hard during these years.

 

Question: What are your future plans, and if you could leave a message for Naver Music readers..

Answer:

Min: Please love Naver Music and we will be working very hard so please listen to miss A’s music and watch out for us!

Suzy: We will become the miss A everyone acknowledges. Thank you.

Fei: First of all, we will work hard and as the oldest unnie, I hope to lead my fellow members. We hope to show a good image and if the time comes, learn acting as well.

Jia: We will always come forth modestly and work diligently on our lives and performances to become the great dance group that blends both aspects well. Please watch out for us and love us!
