Deerzone:
Planitarium Records can be called a unique company for a good reason. How did the whole project started and how did you become a part of it?
Gaho:
June, Moti, Jung Jinwoo, Villain and I. All of us have been working on music together since we were students. Jinwoo and Villain were the first to sign under Planetarium Records and after that the company invited June, Moti and me. All of us got attracted by an opportunity to show our own music. Not every company gives such a freedom to its artists which truly makes Planetarium Records unique and prospective.
Deerzone:
How did your AlphaDict crew appeared?
Gaho:
I met Villain when I was a 1st year high school student. I started creating music myself and later got to know people Villain worked with. Eventually we united as AlphaDict crew in order to create music and perform together.
Deerzone:
You created a lot of songs as a student. Are there any tracks from that time that got officially released?
Gaho:
Yes! My debut song "Shine on you (Feat. Villain)", SHINee – "I Say" and Jung Jinwoo x Gaho – "Insomniac".
Deerzone:
Please, name five vocalists whom you consider the best and whom you're looking up to.
Gaho:
Hmm... I like ZAYN, Imagine Dragon, Naul, Park Hyo Shin, Michael Jackson. And I do look up to Imagine Dragons' vocalist. His vocal is so powerful!
Deerzone:
Could you have become an idol?
Gaho:
I personally think that K-POP artists are really incredible. If I debuted as a member of an idol group I'd probably be the member who also produces songs.
Deerzone:
You released a lot of cover-songs this year and all of them are in English. Is there any particular reason for that?
Gaho:
It's just because I like foreign songs. This is the kind of music I want to perform.
Deerzone:
Is there any of your songs that you are especially proud of?
Gaho:
I'm proud of my every single song but my favorite one is "Stay here". Many thanks to my fans who gave those 1 million views to the music video!
Deerzone:
You, as well as all PLT members, visited Russia during your tour. We were also present at the concert and you, guys, literally blessed us with one of the best shows among all of those held by Korean artists in our country. And what are your special memories of that visit?
Gaho:
Thank you for such kind words! This was my first foreign tour so I was quite nervous to be honest. But the moment the audience sang along our songs was just wonderful. I was really touched by our fans' passion and love. And this happy moments in Russia will stay in my heart forever.
