Q: Who are some of your top musical influences?

I’d say DEEZ. He’s one of our songwriters. I’ve learned a lot from him and I want to continue to learn from him moving forward. I really respect him. I love you!

As for the group’s maknae Jisung, he revealed his latest musical influence comes from Justin Bieber. Jisung shared he has really been into one of Justin Bieber’s more recent albums!

Recently I’ve been listening to a lot Justin Bieber. He came out with an album not too long ago, and even the tone of just his talking voice is so nice. He’s an artist that I really like.
