Q & A::
Q: What does 새벽공방 mean?
A: Their Korean name was translated to English as Dawn GongBang. They shortened the Korean name into an abbreviation that consist of the first letter of each syllable which they feel is easier to remember and say. (A/N: 새벽공방 the literal translation is ‘battle at the break of day’)
Q: I know you’ve both already made your individual debuts in the past. What was it that prompted you to team up and release music?
A: Yeowoon started writing songs with a piano in 2014, but wasn’t very confident in her vocal skills, so she had others do vocal featurings. She had a chance to work with Heeyeon, and liked the combination they made. She asked her if she wanted to team up with her. Heeyeon hesitated at first, and accepted the offer after about six months of getting to know Yeowoon better.
Q: What do you do for your hobbies?
A: Yeowoon likes to go on trips. Heeyeon’s hobby is making music, but is different from when she’s working.
Q: What are your future foreseeable plans?
A: They plan to release another single in the spring. They would like to be on radio star.
