Q & A::
Q: What is your favorite choreography so far?
A: Somin – Hola Hola, because it is like the result of all the practice, and now they can show their individual swag.
Jiwoo – Don’t recall, because it was the hardest for her to learn.
BM – Hola Hola, because of the style, and all the point dances from the previous songs are in it.
J.seph – Don’t recall, he really like the like a lion dance.
Q: What can you tell us again Hola Hola?
A: It means hello in Spanish. It is also saying “Hi we’re here we’ve debuted and were going to the top.” It’s about freedom, and having no worries (similar to the feeling BM gets cruising through LA and Las Vegas). They shot the Hola Hola MV while on tour. The point dance is reaching into the grabbing your dream, and bring it down, and holding it close to your heart.
Q: Are they any funny episodes from when BM was first learning Korean?
A: When BM first came to Korea he didn’t know any Korean when he was saying 감사 (thank you) he would be saying 간사 (you sneaky) instead.
Q: Any future plans?
A: They will be participating in Kcon LA. Concert tour in London, Japan, and
