VICTON's Byungchan, Subin, And Seungsik Discuss New Album, The Difficult Choreography, And More

On January 2, VICTON’s Byungchan, Subin, and Seungsik guested on the radio program “Kim Shin Young’s Hope Song at Noon.”

The group recently released their first full album “VOICE : The future is now” and the music video for their title track “What I Said.” Concerning “What I Said,” they shared, “We tried the Latin genre for the first time. The members had a lot of concerns, but everyone seems to like it, and we’re having fun preparing the performances.”

VICTON matured in terms of music and appearances, and Subin said, “I went on a lot of diets. I debuted at the age of 18 and turned 23 this year (by Korean reckoning). Maybe it’s because I debuted when I was young, but I lost a lot of baby fat, so I think that’s why many people think [I look mature].” At that, Byungchan joked, “I’m now halfway to 50 years old!”

They talked about their new album, and Subin commented, “It’s like a savory and bitter espresso. I don’t enjoy drinking espresso, but I’ve had it out of curiosity. It was really bitter. It was nice and interesting because it was close to the undiluted solution.” Then he praised the radio show, saying, “It’s like an affogato. The radio show makes me think of caffeine and sweet ice cream because it’s fun and energetic.”

Seungsik mentioned the powerful choreography, saying, “We have a lot of choreographies, but this one is scary.” Byungchan, the member who has the toughest time with dancing, added, “I have a pretty weak stamina, and after doing this choreography once, I wanted to run away. It’s so difficult that my legs turned into jelly in the middle of the dance. I struggle sometimes, but I’m making an effort to show everyone something amazing.”

During the speed question segment, Seungsik revealed that he really wants to collaborate with Highlight’s Yang Yoseob. Then he pointed out that Byungchan is the laziest member, saying, “I frequently nag my members to hurry up. I’m always the one who’s waking them up. It’s like I’m the mom of the group.”

When Subin was asked if he felt a generation gap with his members, he responded, “I feel that way when they don’t know new slang words and shortened words.”

Byungchan was asked to rate his acting in his JTBC drama “Live On” that is nearing its grand finale. He confidently commented, “10 out of 10! I really like my role as a bright high school student.”

He continued, “My character is similar to me. He is bright, likes to have fun, and gets along with his friends, so as soon as I saw him, I thought we were the same. My most memorable line will come out in the last episode, so I hope you watch it.”

Byungchan also revealed he is the member who shops online the most. He said, “I received over 60 early morning deliveries. I buy a lot of things, including food and home appliances.”

Kim Shin Young commented, “You’ll be having your comeback stage soon, and I dare say that VICTON’s songs are the most popular. I predict you will earn a trophy.”

Byungchan shared, “We released our first full-length album in five years, and we worked really hard for it, so we will try to show you a better side of us. It is now 2021, and I hope things will get better and that this will be a happy and good year for everyone.”
