MACG Magazine (MM): What was your inspiration for your song/this project?
R ‘N’ Roll Radio (R): 별로 연관은 없지만, 스티븐킹의 소설 ‘사계’에서의 겨울 테마인 breathing method 에서 힌트를 얻었습니다.
This may sound irrelevant, but I got a hint from the breathing method, a winter theme in Stephen King’s novel “Different Seasons.”
MM: What are you excited for fans to see/hear?
R: 승패보다는 올림픽에 참가하는 숭고한 의지에 관해 이야기하고 싶었습니다.
We wanted to talk about the noble will to participate in the Olympics rather than winning or losing.
MM: What does this project mean to you?
R: 참가하는 모든이들에게 바치는 응원가입니다.
It is a cheer for everyone who participates.
MM: How does this body of work compare to previous works?
R: 너무나 뚜렷한 메시지를 가진 이벤트라 다른 작업들과 다르게 처음 시작부터 명확한 목적을 가지고 작업에 임했습니다.
Unlike other works, it was an event with a very clear message. We started to work with a clear purpose from the beginning.
MM: What do you hope the fans take away from this project?
R: 승패에 일희일비 하지않는 모두가 즐겁고 즐길 수 있었으면 합니다. 이 프로젝트로 하여금 패자들에게도 환호를 보내줄 수 있다면 좋겠습니다.
We hope that everyone can enjoy and enjoy without being swift by either victory or defeat. We hope this project can send cheers to the losers, too.
