WINNER in the Indonesian KaWanku Magazine No 174/2014

WINNER

Adorable, talented and clumsy boys.

Although they haven’t released their debut album yet, WINNER attracted 8,000 fans for their fan meeting in Japan, received many endorsement offers, and their debut is most anticipated.

Skilled Self-composers

Not just cool on stage, WINNER also have the ability to produce their own songs. Three members, Seung yoon, Minho and Taehyun have skills to make songs. “Go Up” a song shown in WIN TV program, was made by Seungyoon and it successfully entered the top ten in eight korean online music charts without promotion.

YG Entertainment CEO, Yang Hyun Suk, praised WINNER’s ability and put his trust on them to produce some songs for their debut album. That was kind of rare chance for a new group that is about to debut.

Although only Seung yoon, Minho and Taehyun made their own songs,the other members are always helping them too. Especially Minho and Seunghoon, who always write the lyrics for their own rap part in each song. “The most important thing is that we want to make music which will make people feel they are WINNERs when they listen to it” Seungyoon said.

Dorky & Clumsy

Other things that make fans love WINNER are their clumsy and dorky characters. Minho said
“We are always serious on stage. But back stage, we’re cheerful and really love to joke”
Their dorky and clumsy character revealed on their reality program WINNER TV. From their daily fun and random acts,to their funny reactions when the staff wore a ghost costume and tried to scare them. Minho and Seunghoon who are scaredy cats among WINNER, ran away hilariously. Hi-hi…

When they competed in their own Winter Olympics, they did a lot of silly and random things that entertained the viewers. From Jinwoo who cheated to win the competition to Minho who looks the manliest but in fact he’s the weakest and never won once.

“Jinwoo is the eldest but he’s the cutest, Taehyun is youngest but he’s dependable, Minho is a rapper but he has cute side. Despite our age differences, actually it makes everything more exciting and fun” said Seunghoon.
