3. What does your name, LC9, mean?
Rasa: LC9 means League of Competition. It symbolizes the competition we went through to get here as trainees and the competitions we will have as artists in the entertainment business.
4. In your opinion, what are your strong points?
J-Hyo: Vocals and our stage mannerisms are a bit different than many other groups. We truly try to enjoy ourselves and have fun on stage.
5. Was the training until your debut hard? What anecdote can you tell us of those days?
E.Den: When we were trainees, it was definitely tough. Not because of the actual practice and the hours but because of the mental factors. Firstly, we didn’t earn any money so it was always a big concern. Secondly, we always wondered when we will debut. Training without knowing what our future holds was a big struggle. Lastly, because of the concern from our parents we didn’t want to disappoint them so that was always a worry.
6. We saw that the MV seems dangerous. Has anyone suffered an accident during the recording?
AO: During the recording of the MV we all suffered minor injuries. The shooting was definitely dangerous even though we trained for it. Things like bruises and cuts were sustained by all members.
7. What do you think about you being called the Brown Eyed Boys? Does that make you feel pressured?
King: Being called the brown eyes boys before our debut gave us mixed feelings. First we were really grateful because the name brown eyes immediately attracts attention and the notion that the group is vocally talented. Many seniors before us have this name so we were very thankful for this.
At the same time we felt a burden that we have to live up to this name. The seniors who carried this name before us are all very talented so we didn’t want to let anybody down. Most importantly we didn’t want to let down ourselves.
8. Other artists that you admire?
Jun: Individually we have many different artists that we draw inspiration from, but as a group we would have to say Michael Jackson.
9. What are your hobbies?
Rasa: All the members have different hobbies but some are: watching movies, playing video games, shopping, browsing YouTube, hiking, eating.
10. Do you have any future projedcts that you can tell us?
E.Den: For now we plan on focusing on our first mini album and its promotions. After we develop a solid base we definitely intend on reaching out to other foreign countries. Spain is definitely somewhere we would like to go to.
11. What are your goals for this year?
J-Hyo: Our main goal is to win the rookie award which is an award a team can only win once.
12. Send a message to your Spanish fans.
King: To our Spain love beats: thank you guys for all your support. We hope to see you all soon. Our first promotion will probably come to an end soon, and afterwards we will be diligently preparing for our other activities.
