ASTRO’s Moonbin & Sanha Talk About How Their Unit Was Formed And What They Learned From Each Other

ASTRO’s Moonbin & Sanha participated in an interview and photo shoot for the magazine Marie Claire Korea.

Moonbin & Sanha formed ASTRO’s first sub-unit in September with the mini album “IN-OUT” and title track “Bad Idea.”

Moonbin said, “In the past, I wanted to do a performance with Sanha at a concert. I had that thought in mind when the agency suggested that we form a sub-unit, so I thought it would be a good opportunity. I thought a lot about what kind of image we should show, but I was optimistic about being in a unit with Sanha from the very beginning.”

Sanha said, “In contrast, I had a lot of concerns. For four and a half years, ASTRO only showed the six of us on stage. Now that it was just the two of us doing something new, I was nervous. But I grew less nervous as we chose the title track and started rehearsing. Because we matched well.”

Moonbin continued, “It was a unit, but the name ASTRO was attached, so we wanted to make sure the performances and music were cool. But we thought a lot about whether we would do something similar to ASTRO or try something completely new.” Sanha added, “In the end, it feels like something new has been added to what ASTRO already has.”

About their sub-unit name, Moonbin & Sanha, Sanha said, “The two of us have the nickname ‘Ddan Kong,’ from Sanha’s ‘San’ and Moonbin’s ‘Bin.’ But it felt too lighthearted for our music.” (“Ddan” sounds like a cutesy pronunciation of “San,” and “Bin” sounds like “bean,” which is “kong” in Korean.) Moonbin said, “We thought about using our initials, like ‘MS.’ But that sounded like ‘MS [Microsoft] Office.’ If we reversed it, it would be ‘SM,’ and we couldn’t promote with the name ‘SM.'”

The interviewer asked if the members had learned something new about each other through their unit promotions. Sanha said, “I realized anew that Moonbin sleeps a lot. He sleeps while we’re taking a break, while we’re waiting, while we’re being driven somewhere.” Moonbin replied, “I did sleep a lot this time. Surprisingly, there turned out to be a lot about Sanha that I didn’t know. He’s the youngest of our team, we spend a lot of time together, and we cherish him a lot, so I prided myself on knowing him well. But I realized that wasn’t the case when it was the two of us. It’s something like, when you get used to someone, you become careless of them? I realized that I needed to pay more attention to Sanha and the other members. Because they’re my family.”
