The Man of Trend Coming Back as a Singer in 1 Year

Hello all genie family! This week, I interviewed the vocalist Seo In Guk that came back as a singer after 1 year. Last year was the prime in his acting career through ‘Love Rain(Sarangbi),’ ‘Reply 1997,’ and ‘Rascal Sons.’ At the same time, he also performed in musicals and took various commercials and art books. Seo In Guk is now obviously the man of trend coming back with a single album [With Laughter or With Tears] after 1 year of career break as a singer since the mini album [Perfect Fit] released in last April. ‘With Laughter or With Tears’ is a deeper soul ballad song. Well, now it is about time to share interview done with Seo In Guk for fans out there waiting for a new album.





Hello, Seo In Guk!! It has been such a long time since I saw you as a singer. First of all, please tell us how you feel to release single album in 1 year.


Seo In Guk : Hello all, this is Seo In Guk coming back as a singer after 1 year. First of all, I would like to say thank you to all the fans out there waiting me for 1 year. At the same time, I feel responsible, too. So, I am pretty nervous right now. 



 


Before talking about other stuffs that we want to know about, please tell us about the main track ‘With Laughter or With Tears.’ Is it related to farewell?


Seo In Guk : The song describes a sorrowful daily life of a man after breaking up with his lover. It is a soul ballad song with sad melody and lyrics that I haven’t tried to sing before. 


 


It is not easy to accept the fact of breakup and move on with life. I see you are good at expressing those types of mixed emotion and complicated feeling when you sing. I would rather say that you sympathize in one way or another. Now, let’s talk about something other than album. I assume that you might be physically and mentally tired as you perform. I want to know how you get rid of stress from life and heal yourself.  


Seo In Guk : I like to eat. So, I used to eat delicious food to get rid of stress. However, I relieve stress with exercise and shopping these days.

This is Mustachos, the writer of music essay in genie! Were you curious about who I am? Today, I want to introduce special people with a bit special story.


● My other self

I, Mustachos, am made out of fabric DNA. One’s character and tendency is chosen from fabric DNA and become one’s other self. Well…this is a secret but I’ll tell you. I, Mustachos, am summoned from a planet called Mustopia. In Mustopia, there is only specie that has mustache. When I came to the Planet Earth, I was mistaken for a guy because of my mustache. However, we all have it whether we are a boy or a girl, like when you look at a dog or a cat, it has mustache regardless of its gender. You can’t distinguish our gender from our appearances. We are granted of our genders, ages, and names from our clients who summoned us here. And grannies take us to the Earth safe and sound. Grannies are superwomen who used to lead the world with a needle and a thread. When they get all wrinkled and old and can’t get a job when they want to work, they help us in our safe trip to the Earth.




● Granny Granny My Granny

 They have workshops in Woori Mapo Community Relief Center in front of Ewha Woman’s University. In a white, small room of trapezoid shape, they have a sewing machine, cotton, cloth and other equipments that are needed to summon Mustachos. After lunch, five grannies come out and check yesterday’s order status. They look at the list of people who need friends or other selves and then they summon Mustachos one by one with magical touches. Stitch by stitch they make Mustachos with great care. Everything is created by them, such as eyes, mustache, and general looks. Hmm…sometimes I ask them ‘isn’t the job too hard?’ Then they respond with warm smiles, saying ‘I’m very happy that I’m working.’ They taught me how sad it is to not able to work just because of old age. Five grannies all have wrinkles on their faces and fingers, but their touches are very warm and soft. When I look at them, I think about my granny who is in my home planet. She used to tell me many fairly tales. She used to hide me under her skirt when I was scolded by my parents. She bought me roasted chestnuts in winter and ice cream in summer. I used to touch my granny’s frizzy, white hair with my finger because it looked so funny.
