Block B’s Park Kyung Talks About The Musical Advice He Gets From Zico
Block B’s Park Kyung shared stories from preparing for his solo comeback in an interview on June 22.
On Block B’s promotions, Park Kyung said, “In comparison with other groups, we may be not doing a comeback for a long time, but we promoted with Block B’s album until January. If you look at the time frame, I don’t think it’s been that long.”
Park Kyung has gained more recognition from the public as a fixed member on tvN’s “Problematic Men.” He commented, “I think one out of four people may recognize me. Although I think that it’s important to have a smart image in Korea, I wonder if [this kind of image] intruding on my main job is putting the cart before the horse.”
He added, “I’m thankful that the program allowed people to know my name and got them to listen to music, but I’m sad that many people don’t know that I sing.”
Park Kyung described the style of his music as “ambiguous music that’s difficult to conclude to be ‘vocals.'” He continued, “It’s like a melody-rap that a traditional vocalist may ask, ‘That’s a song?’ I think it comes out as I hum in my style.”
Talking about how he confides in fellow member Zico about his musical concerns, Park Kyung said, “Before I complete a song, I get feedback from my friend and colleague Zico. He’s a friend with a wide spectrum who speaks frankly.”
He said that Zico recently told him, “There are many syllables.” Park Kyung explained, “He suggested, ‘Don’t you think you need some blanks?’ but I didn’t accept it. My other songs are also packed with syllables. It’s a difference in style.”
Released on June 22, Park Kyung’s newest song “Instant” is an alternative punk track about how everything is easy and fast in today’s society. He wrote the song and lyrics, and produced the track.
