We already shared the pictures of these boys for the March issue of Popolo. B1A4 is featured on the said magazine and as we promised to DKP readers that we will share the translation of the interview with these boys, the interview has been translated and we'll let you read it now.

Read the translations of their interview on Japan's Popolo Magazine below.


CNU
Role in B1A4: Vocal and rap. I tend to look after (the members), so I have the role of a mother.
1. A B1A4 song that matches well with Valentines' Day?: Chu Chu Chu. Since it is a day of confessions, I think this song will bring that mood out.
2. A Japanese phrase you remembered recently?: "So as to make many memories with everyone, I will work hard."
3. Type of females you like?: A girl with a wide motherly heart, someone thoughtful.
4. Tell us about B1A4's charm!: The way we're able to enjoy with everyone. We want to breathe and become work with everyone.
5. Something you've been into recently?: There are many times that I show my arms on stage, so I'm working hard to build good arm muscles.
6. How do the members look like when they're recording?: We often advise each other, like "isn't it better to do this" or "doing it this way is better". During recording, we compromise and discuss our opinions, since our motto is to make good songs.
7. Words you like: Do not rationalize. If you do something wrong and you rationalize, you will not grow (from the mistake). In order not to suffer from the same failure again, it is important to think (about the mistake). [T/N: Rationalize is a direct translation, but it means more of finding excuses for a mistake.]


Jinyoung
Role in B1A4: Leader and vocal. I am hearing recently, that my personality is much like a grandfather's. (laugh)
1. A B1A4 song that matches well with Valentines' Day?: Chu Chu Chu. It's a song as sweet as chocolate, it'll be nice to listen to it as a couple.
2. A Japanese phrase you remembered recently?: "How much is it?"
3. Type of females you like?: My type is a girl who only likes me, and is feminine.
4. Tell us about B1A4's charm!: Our stage is our playground. Isn't it enjoyable watching us?
5. Something you've been into recently?: So as to participate in composing songs, I have been listening and analysing songs by foreign artistes.
6. How do the members look like when they're recording?: Be it during recording or making songs, when it comes to sound, we are tenacious. Especially when it comes to composing a song, we put our heart and soul into directing it into our own style. I want to make music that many people can think that "Oh, this song is nice".
7. Words you like: The boughs that bear most hang lowest. It means 'to become a modest person'. It's a cool phrase, I like a lot. [T/N: It is a reference to modesty and humility being virtues, similar in meaning to 'not blowing your own trumpet'.]


Sandeul
Role in B1A4: Main vocal. I make everyone laugh. (laughs)
1. A B1A4 song that matches well with Valentines' Day?: O.K. Be the Yes Man to a weary girlfriend while singing O.K to her.
2. A Japanese phrase you remembered recently?: "I am the best popular guy in B1A4!"
3. Type of females you like?: I'm attracted to girls who work hard at things they do, and are responsible.
4. Tell us about B1A4's charm!: Because the voices of the members are all different, people watch in fascination.
5. Something you've been into recently?: I want to show everyone a sweet yet sorrowful singing voice, so I'm practicing hard at singing.
6. How do the members look like when they're recording?: During a situation where someone points out something musically, we talk about it thoroughly. For example, when we are recording a song composed by Jinyoung hyung, we follow his instructions in close detail. That was what happened during the recording of "Bling Girl".
7. Words you like: Don't regret! When I make a decision, I don't want to regret it. No matter what happens, that sentence is always in my heart.


Baro
Role in B1A4: In charge of rap. I am the vitamin and engine in the group.
1. A B1A4 song that matches well with Valentines' Day?: My Love. Even though the lyrics are about looking for love, it's a heartfelt song that matches such a special night.
2. A Japanese phrase you remembered recently?: "Whenever I think of everyone, I sing."
3. Type of females you like?: A person that matches well with me and enjoys talking to me. I like cute girls too.
4. Tell us about B1A4's charm!: One of our charms that we have teamwork like real brothers, and we're able to talk about anything and everything.
5. Something you've been into recently?: Listening to all genres of music, and researching on how I can express myself better through writing raps.
6. How do the members look like when they're recording?: I wrote the lyrics to Beautiful Target with CNU hyung. Like in the lyrics, we expressed the feelings of liking someone with the sound effect of a rocket or a gun. Just like so, we gather our ideas and did the recording.
7. Words you like: "Fun, hot and cool". It's a life that doesn't come twice, so we should live everyday enjoyably. That is why I want to do everything I need to do, to the best of my abilities.


Gongchan
Role in B1A4: Vocal. I want to be the cute maknae. (laughs)
1. A B1A4 song that matches well with Valentines' Day?: Chu Chu Chu. The lyrics are very cute, and if you let the person you like listen to it, he/she would definitely love the confession.
2. A Japanese phrase you remembered recently?: "Was our performance interesting?"
3. Type of females you like?: A girl who usually pretends to be very strong/fierce, but when in front of me has lots of aegyo. A tsundere??? [T/N: Person who is initially cold and even hostile towards another person before gradually showing their warm side over time.]
4. Tell us about B1A4's charm!: No matter what it is, we look at it positively and have a "we can do it if we do it" mindset.
5. Something you've been into recently?: I keep hearing that I got thinner, so I have a project ongoing to put on weight.
6. How do the members look like when they're recording?: Usually, I am in charge of being the cute maknae. But when we are in practicing or recording, I make sure that I speak my opinions. It is really important so as to make good songs.
7. Words you like: Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei (from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms) made a decision to become sworn brothers a long time ago. We too, in order for our dreams to become reality, will become one and move forward strongly.
