B1A4 was recently in Dallas and we were lucky enough to head out to see them along with a ton of dedicated BANA. Before they put on a killer concert, the boys had an intimate Meet and Greet session with 50 lucky fans and answered some of our questions and a few hilarious fan questions as well!
Check out their answers below! Baro really blew us away with his English – parts in Italics were spoken in English:
What is one thing on your bucket list?
Baro: Skydiving! I really want to go, let’s go! And get married~ with you~
Jinyoung: Travel around the world!
Sandeul: Make a cake.
Gongchan: Go backpacking.
CNU: Go on a cruise with fans!
How do practices usually go?
Jinyoung: We have fun, even though we usually only have a short amount of time we try to enjoy it!
What’s the most unique or fun thing that has happened during a concert, live performance, music video shoot, or recording session?
CNU: There are a lot… Once during a live performance, I kicked my microphone off. It went flying!
Baro: For me, I’ve never made a mistake during a performance.
Fans: *lose it laughing*
Sandeul: They [fans] find that the funniest!
Baro: As far as I know….
Sandeul: Once we had a really big stage, and I put on my in-ear monitor and was waiting on standby but when I finally got up on stage, it was still off…
Gongchan: I make a lot of small mistakes. This time it was during the “Sweet Girl” MV filming and there were a ton of flies so we made a lot of NGs because of them….
Jinyoung: Once my shoe fell off while I was on stage… I was only wearing one shoe so I kicked it off and completed the performance in bare feet.
What Texan food are you most excited to try?
Baro: Please recommend something!
Fans: BBQ! Mexican food!In-n-Out! BBQ!
Baro: We ate a lot of Mexican food in Mexico…
Baro: Oooooh, tex-mex? Like a mix of Texas and Mexican food!
What inspires you to keep going?
Are any of your songs written from personal experience?
CNU: For me…. All of my songs are about my experiences.
Jinyoung: The song 사랑 그땐 (Love Then), that song is about a time when I was in love and after love all the good memories and the bad memories are still experiences so I put them into that song.
Best way to cheer me up when I’m down is…
Gongchan: I ride a bike along the Han River and I forget all the bad memories.
Sandeul: For me, there’s only one reason why I’d be in a bad mood: either I am dieting or I didn’t eat. So in order to cheer myself up, I eat something delicious.
Fans: *round of applause*
Jinyoung: I put on my headphones and listen to an upbeat song really loudly. Then I start enjoying it and my mood lifts.
Baro: I drink some wine alone. A-a little tipsy? I like.
Fans: Do you like shots?
Baro: Shots?And soju?
CNU: Yes, meditation. I try to spend time by myself.
Most prized possession?
Gongchan: My most precious possession is… my hard drive. Inside, there are a lot of pictures, because I like to take pictures so I think it’s probably the most special.
Sandeul: I just recently bought a watch for the first time. So I think it’s my most treasured item right now.
Jinyoung: Our work-room’s computer! A lot of our songs are on it.
Baro: My iPhone. There are a lot of pictures of the members. One day I’ll upload them all to instagram!
CNU: Time! I think time is most precious.
Baro: Right now!
And now for the fan questions:
For Gongchan: If you were in the avengers, which superhero would you be?
Gongchan: I would be Iron Man! Jarvis! Because if I had the suit, I could be more free and live more comfortably.
Sandeul: I was going to say that! Actually, the Hulk for real. I like transforming and you get to tear off your clothing.
CNU: Sandeul is actually a lot like the Hulk! Normally he’s really gentle and positive but sometimes, like the Hulk, he’s kind of a tough guy too.
Sandeul: There’s another good point about the Hulk! When he transforms his body is really nice!
Jinyoung: I would want to be Quicksilver! *Sandeul doesn’t understand so everyone acts him out in slo-mo*
Baro: I would want to be Hawkeye! I really like the actor, what is his name? Actor name?
Fans: Jeremy Renner!
Baro: I really like him, I’m his big fan so…
CNU: They’re all great but, who do you think suits me best?
Baro: Captain America!
Baro, what is your favorite English phrase?
Baro: I’m lucky! In life, always.I love you life, always.
Jinyoung, what’s your favorite hair color on yourself?
Baro: Red! Red!
Jinyoung: No~ Black! Red and black!
*Baro motions for him to dye half his head black, the other half red*
CNU, shall we sing together? *Fan stands up, CNU stands up*
CNU: Which song?
Fan: A “Chess” song!
Sandeul: Oh? Chest song??
CNU: Chess song? Ooohhh, from “Chess!”

CNU: *joins in and completes part of the song*
Sandeul, how is it playing a prince in Cinderella?
Sandeul: Ah, yes, I was a prince…. I was really happy! I am able to really enjoy playing a prince. In my real life too, it’s like I’m a prince.
Fans: You are!
Sandeul: I’d like to sing a song that I sing in “Cinderella.” *sings*
And all the fans swooned. Actually, the fans swooned about a hundred times in the half hour Meet and Greet! B1A4 really knows how to have fun with fans and a lot of time was spent laughing together.
