Are you ready for the Brand New Music duo MXM? Having released their double single Rematch just last month, the boys of MXM have recently geared up to form a project unit “YDPP” with fellow and former Produce 101 contestants, Jeong Se-woon and Lee Gwang-hyun, dropping a hot track titled ‘Love It Live It‘.
Come May 4, MXM’s Im Young-min and Kim Dong-hyun will be holding a Fan Meeting with Singapore fans, which will mark their first visit here. In case you missed it, fans can also catch them at their open press conference a day prior to the show on May 3. But before that, check out our interview with the boys to find out their thoughts on the Fan Meeting, their first impressions of each other, what they like to do in their free time and more!
Q: Can both members describe the concept that you personally think would suit each other best?
Young-min: Dong-hyun likes indie music and looks great when he sings a slow tempo ballad. He has a kind personality, so I think he would look good in dandy, semi-formal style.
Dong-hyun: I’d like to see Young-min rapping about a warm and sweet concept lyrics.
Q: What was your first impression of each other when you first joined Brand New Music as a trainee?
Young-min: He always knew how to take care of others, and was always out-going.
Dong-hyun: Youngmin always looked out after others and was very easy going.
Q: Out of all your releases, name one song that you would recommend fans to listen to this Spring and tell us why you chose this song.
Young-min: I choose ‘Rush On You (딱 기다려줘)’. It is a song that is easy to listen to while enjoying the Spring breeze.
Dong-hyun: For me, ‘I JUST DO’. It is as sweet as a Spring weather. Also, because I wrote the song… 😀
Q: Since Brand New Music is known to specialize in hip-hop, would MXM consider to release hip-hop tracks in the near future?
Young-min: I’ve always wanted to try this, so be ready for it!
Dong-hyun: Yes, we both want to try it.
Q: What do you do in your free time?
Young-min: Shopping for clothes, walking around, and searching for cool and fun videos.
Dong-hyun: Watching movies, listening to music, reading poems, writing songs, and walking along Han River.
Q: What can fans look forward to at your upcoming Fan Meeting in Singapore?
Young-min: We are thrilled to visit our Singapore fans for the first time! As we are preparing a lot for it, we hope that you guys are excited for it as much as we are!
Dong-hyun: We are coming close to you!
