The B.I.G boys were dressed in gray uniform coats with red accents, as they first began with a brief interview followed by a viewing of their new MV and performance for their title track 'Aphrodite'. The overall showcase was a huge success as the boys perfectly executed their carefully practiced routines and answered questions with both sincerity and humor.
We know how much fans living abroad get frustrated by not being able to attend these showcases. That's why we've brought a little part of B.I.G to you! We asked B.I.G to fill out a series of questions in their own handwriting, with a little message for their foreign fans. Check out the exclusive interview that Kpopmap has prepared just for you!
Exclusive Interview with B.I.G
[BIG TRANSFORMER] Which member transformed the most since debut?
J-Hoon: I would have to say MinPyo. He was very frail and skinny when we first debuted, but now he has become more mature since then.
Benji: HeeDo is the member who transformed the most since debut. Ever since he reached the legal age, he has become an amazing singer on stage.
GunMin: <HeeDo> Even up to his audition, I had always thought "What is that tanned kid..."
Guk MinPyo: HeeDo. When we debuted he seemed like a baby, but he has become manly with every album release.
HeeDo: I think me. I was a minor when I debuted, but now I reached the legal age.

GunMin: The Aphrodite of the celebrity world is...

[RIGHT NOW] What would you do if you had 1 hour of free time right now?
J-Hoon: Nothing but deep sleep. I've been lacking sleep since preparing for our comeback. ㅠㅠ
Benji: 1 hour of free time means it's time to ride a skateboard.
GunMin: You're only giving me... one hour...? I can't watch a movie... Go lay down and sky watch at a park, I guess.
Guk MinPyo: I want to go to the park in front of our home and rest while feeling the breeze.
HeeDo: I want to walk along the beach while listening to music
