Rising co-ed group KARD recently sat down for a photoshoot and interview with ‘@star1’!
The four members B.M, J.seph, Somin, and Jiwoo posed together looking trendy, dressed in bohemian and denim style clothes.
Q: You are receiving such an explosive response from overseas even before your official debut. “Don’t Recall” topped iTunes in addition to the music video views.
Somin: Since we received such an unexpected response, it still feels like a dream. We are just so happy.
B.M: I can’t believe it. I’m from L.A. and my friends tell me that KARD is quite popular in America. They send me screenshots from the music video and it amazes me every time.

Q: Your overseas tour has been confirmed. What part of KARD’s charm do you think struck a chord?
B.M: At first, we were just jokingly shouting out ‘world tour’ when it surprisingly came true. I think we were able to connect due to the genre.
J.seph: I saw photos of fans standing in line waiting to purchase tickets and it was incredible. I thought, are these really our fans? I had to zoom in on the photos to believe it for myself. Haha.
Q: Aren’t there many fans here in Korea who recognize you?
B.M: I was on the train once in Itaewon and a man walked up to me saying “Aren’t you B.M? I’m a huge KARD fan.” We chatted for a while… I thought about carrying around a signed CD. I really wanted to give him one.
Q: There must be some concerns regarding dating within the team. Is there a possibility?
Jiwoo: During the shoot earlier, they told us to pose together with our faces touching and I felt a sudden jolt. I got so shocked (laughs).
J.seph: None of us are even close to our own styles.
Q: Thenwho is your ideal style?
J.seph: I like actressPark Si Yeon sunbae.I’m not comparing with the members of course.
Somin: I think I’m good as long as it’s not J.seph oppa (laughs). I don’t really have an ideal type but just someone who’s manly I guess.
Q: How did you react when you first listened to your songs?
B.M: It was ‘crazy’. “Oh NaNa” just clicked and when I heard the beat to “Don’t Recall” I was like ‘wow.’
Jiwoo: After listening to “Don’t Recall” we practiced continuously since we wanted to record it as soon as possible.
J.seph: I seriously got goosebumps after listening to “Don’t Recall”; it was that good.
Q: You haven’t made your official debut yet. What do you want to do most once you debut?
Somin: I wish to appear on’Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook.’
B.M: I want to go on’Hit the Stage’.
J.seph: I would like to go on a nationwide tour in Seoul, Daejun, Daegu, Busan and Jeju Island.
Jiwoo: I want to have a fan meeting. I think it’s a good opportunity to get closer with fans.
