Does each of you like songwriting in general? If so, please elaborate more on your answers.

Myungho: “I’m interested in both writing lyrics and composing! I haven’t started it yet, but I think I will be very proud, awestruck, and joyful that lots of people will be grooving to the beat, melody, and lyrics I wrote.”

Jaeyun: “I’m interested in both writing lyrics and composing, so I would love to perform the songs that I’ve written someday.”

Minho: “I’m more interested in composing than writing lyrics. However, I find that I would do better writing lyrics because I’m quite emotional and fond of writing poems so I believe I can write more impactful lyrics.”

Yoonsung: “I’m intrigued by both writing and composing, but the thing I want to try first is composing! I’ve got a fascination with both piano and guitar, so I’m eager to create a song with these instruments.”

Haemin: “I’ve got my eye on both writing and composing, but currently, I started writing lyrics bit by bit, as it is something that is easier for me, so I’m gradually working on my lyrics! As for composing, I’m keen to experiment with writing melodies by writing top lines or chords.”

Kyungmin: “I’m interested in both lyric writing and composing, so I’m putting in the effort these days! Initially, I was drawn to creating top lines, but lately, I’m more into making beats and the overall composing process. I would love to create a song from start to finish someday!”

Yungyu: “I’ve never tried composing before, so, at the moment, I’m more interested in lyric writing than composing.”

Seungyeon: “Personally, I’m more interested in writing lyrics so that’s what I’m working on at the moment!”
