In a recent interview, MXM talked about their agency Brand New Music and their close friendship to their labelmates Park Woo Jin and Lee Dae Hwi.
Lim Young Min praised the producers in his agency, saying, “The Brand New Music producers are really good at music. Dong Hyun and I are in the learning process. We compose songs and write lyrics, but there is a difference in skill level with the producers’.” Kim Dong Hyun added, “Even though we didn’t separately learn how to compose songs, we’re being influenced by watching the producers. The songs ‘GOOD DAY’ and ‘I Just Do’ were made during our trainee days.”
MXM also talked about the warm atmosphere of their agency. Kim Dong Hyun said, “There’s a lot of communication exchanged with the senior colleagues of Brand New Music, including the staff members, so we’re like a family.” Lim Young Min explained, “When we meet our senior colleagues, we shake hands and bump our shoulders against each other in a hip hop style. They’re trying to make us feel at ease.”
The two idols revealed that Brand New Music originally had no plans to create MXM. Lim Young Min said, “We thought we would have to wait since Park Woo Jin and Lee Dae Hwi debuted as Wanna One. The agency gave us a good opportunity.” Kim Dong Hyun stated, “Our ultimate goal is to be active in Brand New Boys with Park Woo Jin and Lee Dae Hwi.”
Following that, MXM talked about their close relationship to the two Wanna One members. Lim Young Min said, “We really want to meet [them] at a music show broadcast. The four of us don’t say embarrassing things to each other. Even when it was New Year’s Day, all we said to each other was ‘Happy New Year.’ We’re like really comfortable brothers.”
MXM recently made a comeback with “Diamond Girl.”
