[Exclusive] Kpoplive Chats With One Way!

We said that we’ll have a little surprise coming for you in the next few days, but I doubt that you’ll be able to remember it. Anyway, for those of you who did, the long wait is over.

As an official media partner of One Way Live in Manila, we were entitled to an exclusive pre-arrival interview from this K-Pop trio. You can’t find this anywhere but here, so read on!

Q: How excited are you guys to be here in Philippines? Please rate on a scale of 1-10.

A: 10 because it’s always nice to meet people and encounter with their different cultures. Oh and to perform in front of a different audience is always great.

Q: Did you expect your music to be touching base in the Philippines?

A: Hell no! We didn’t see this coming at all.

Q: What do you guys feel now that your song is climbing up in the MYX Chart?

A: We’re grateful that people appreciate our music, although you may not understand the lyrics. Good music is always good music and we feel inside that we somewhat have casted a spell with that magic in our songs.

Q: What’s the ‘Magic’ behind all of your music? Inspiration?

The vibe and chemistry within the group One Way. Whenever we make music we sometimes fight and argue but it’s all in all to produce the best sound. We want ourlisteners to only get the best of us. You can call it greed or whatever you want.

Q: Any artists you dream of collaborating with, might it be Korean or not?

If the opportunity is there, American producers such as Timbaland, Neptunes, Kanye West, Drake, D’Angelo, Musiq Soulchild so much to write.^^

Q: I, and a lot of Filipino ladies, are shopaholics. Who is One Way’s shopaholic and is always ready for a shopping spree?

A: Chance seems to buy a lot of stuff when he’s out shopping but we all usually decidefirst and then get just what we need.

Q: Is there something you want fans to know about One Way?

A: We are very ordinary everyday guys that love to have fun when we’re out, can take jokes and love making music.

Had enough? Well, I hope not because this is only the first part of the interview. Stay tuned to KPOPLIVE for the continuation.

By the way, One Way is really getting more and more exposure. Who would’ve thought that they’d reach this big?
