[TRANS] "DBSK, What they got through 'Mirotic'?..."
We're happy that we gained more male fans"
Popular group DBSK chose that they gained male fans as the thing that changed the most during their 4th album activities.
DBSK, who was invited as a guest to the 29th Blue Dragon Movie Awards that opened on the 20th at KBS Hall, met with a reporter and talked about things like their opinions on their come-back activities and their future plans.
DBSK's U-know YunHo, Xiah JunSu, and ChoiKang ChangMin all chose "male fans have increased to the point it stands out" as what changed the most from their last group activities.
Xiah JunSu said "Before, when we met guys they didn't seem very interested besides those in their 10s, but lately I'm surprised that even when we meet men in their 20s or 30s they tell us 'I really like Mirotic - Jumun'. ChoiKang ChangMin also chimed in that "I was surprised when the hyung-deul who went to serve in the army said 'DBSK's song is super popular here'".
The members of DBSK chose the reason for their album's popularity as the fact that from their preexisting core fans, the fans [kinda like types etc] have expanded. Their 4th album 'Mirotic' breaks away from the typical SMP (SM Music Performance) music and seasons a more European refined style.
U-Know YunHo analyzed that "This album took off the weight of lyrics like 'O JungBanHap's and chose lots of easy lyrics like 'You fall for me~', but it seems that it became the main factor that secured more music fans than just familiar ones".
U-Know YunHo said that "First I worried that it might be a bit too heavy" "but I believed in our confidence. I thought that in order for others to like it, we have to like it first. So we made an album that was kinda different from SMP, but the response was good so I am only thankful".
