: The first album I bought was by BTS! I’ve been a huge fan, so I remember purchasing it online.Seonghwa: I can't remember the first album I bought, but I often visited the album store in my neighborhood. I really liked to buy and collect albums so I bought albums of senior artists who were, and are still, very active. Of course, right now, I have our albums on display.

2. What was the first concert you saw?Hongjoong: I remember going to a concert where many K-pop artists including Girls' Generation performed, when I was in elementary school. At that time, dancing and singing on the stage itself looked amazing and they looked like people living in different worlds.

San: It was iKON’s concert, and I went there with my mother and older sister. That experience remains in my memory!3. Who inspired you to become an artist?Yunho: U-Know, of TVXQ!, is my role model, and I could say both his life and his artistic aspects have influenced me. His great passion, dancing, and singing are all admirable, and he has influenced me a lot.

Yeosang: After watching Highlight’s performance, I thought,"I want to be a great performer on stage like them too.” That's how I developed my dream of becoming an artist.4. What’s at the top of your professional bucket list?Hongjoong: It's a vague dream, but I want to perform at the Super Bowl. To achieve my dream, I'm trying my best to show better performances day by day. headtopics.com

Jongho: I wish for my singing skills to improve to the point where I, myself can be satisfied with, and could be acknowledged by the public as well. And I'm trying my best to do that. It's hard to determine “success,” but I'm working hard.

5. How did your hometown/city shape who you are?Seonghwa: My hometown gives me nostalgia. I have a lot of memories and I really miss them. Thus, when I’m tired, I recall the happy past. When I face difficulties, I look back on myself of the past and cope with my problems.

San: My actual hometown has influenced me a lot too, but I think my practice, efforts and the members beside me made who I am now.6. What’s the last song you listened to?Yunho: I recently listened to a song that I like. It's been a while since I heard this song by the band The Script. I really like the song, “The Man Who Can't Be Moved.” It's a song about waiting for someone you first loved at the place you saw that person for the first time.

Yeosang: I listened to Michael Carreon's “The Simple Things.” The weather was so nice today that I couldn't help but listen to this song!7. If you could see any artist in concert, dead or alive, who would it be?Wooyoung: I really want to go to Michael Jackson's concert! He's such a great artist that I love so much. If I can go to his concert, I'll be really looking forward to it. headtopics.com

Jongho: I really want to go to Park Hyo Shin’s concert. I've been listening to his songs since I was young and learned how to sing that I know so many of his b-side songs. So, I want to listen to his songs live at the concert hall.8. What’s your karaoke go-to?

Yunho: I like to sing “Emergency Room” by IZI. I don't know why I started to like that song, but I think I've been singing it in karaoke since the first time I sang the song.Wooyoung: It's Lee Juck’s “I'm Fortunate.” I sang this song at my relative's wedding.

9. What do you want fans to take away from your mini-albumZero:Fever Part 2?Seonghwa: I hope many people get to have confidence and courage for challenge after listening to this album. And I hope the meaning of loving each other is conveyed to them.San

: I wish for them to know that ATEEZ has grown one step further, and that we can love each other with a strong-as-"Fireworks" heart!10. Which song onis your personal favorite and why?Hongjoong: I really like what “Take Me Home” tries to deliver and [I love] the saxophone solo in the outro part.

Seonghwa: I like all the songs so much that my favorite changes every time, but for now, I like “Time of Love.” Because the meaning of the lyrics is what I want to deliver to others.Yunho: “Time of Love” is a song that has a bright and exciting atmosphere that you can enjoy together.

Yeosang: I really like the song “The Leaders.” I really like hip-hop, and this song will light up the atmosphere!San: I like the last track, the remix of the title track single “I'm The One (Heat-Topping ver.)”! It’s very exciting and if there's a performance to this song, it'll be fantastic.

Wooyoung: I like “Fireworks (I'm The One)” and “The Leaders.”Jongho: I really like the song “Take Me Home.” It's a style of song that we've never tried. I also really like the melody line.11. How did it feel to be named one of the most-tweeted music artists in the U.S. in 2020?
