#hashtag(해시태그): T.O.P(탑) _ FROM T.O.P EXHIBITION(프롬 탑 엑시비션) [ENG/JPN/CHN SUB]


T.O.P’s First Time Ever Photo Exhibition This is T.O.P Choi Seung Hyun with FROM TOP EXHIBITION Good to see you all Hashtag Interview Artists pick keywords about themselves # Interview 5th T.O.P I don’t show myself a lot these days so I thought it was kind of funny and brave for me to hang my photos for an exhibition I laughed about this project when it began I chose all the pictures I think a person’s eyes are very important What I tried to do is select pictures that show different eyes telling different stories Q. Favorite picture? I personally wanted to keep this one, so I had it framed It shows a side of me, curious about the future Just a young man in his twenties I think it’s very well portrayed so… Q. What do the members think?I think they know about the exhibition but they haven’t called me yet So I guess I’ll be seeing it by myself It’s kind of embarrassing I couldn’t tell them to come see how I hung up all these pictures of myself In fact I wish they never come I’m so embarrassed to be even sitting here right now I don’t know what to say #TwentySeven When I was in my teens I’ve always wanted to be 27 I had high hopes, like… how will my life be when I turn 27? but I turned 27 and it was no big deal I’ve led an intense life and I think as a 27 year old It was a time I’ve matured mentally Q. Next age you’re looking forward to? 40? I figure it’ll be a lot different #Exhibition It’s just like the title, it’s ‘FROM TOP’ With facial expressions only I can make I mean, I wasn’t trying to imitate anyone It shows who I am and how my twenties went That’s all there is to it I think it’s important to be able to feel the atmosphere and express it and it’s awesome when the person’s vibes just come pouring out I don’t take selfies When I take pictures of myself For some reason, I feel like my energy gets drained out Q. A lot of the pictures show your left profile I like my left profile My right profile makes me look vicious and I don’t like looking too vicious So I guess that’s why I take a lot of pictures from the left Q. And a lot of them are silly- That’s who I am When I get serious, I get serious all the way so it’s better for me to let myself go time to time Or maybe I’m just weird When people see me… they say I’m crazy Q. What’s ‘weirdness’?- It’s being unpredictable Being able to show a different side of yourself and the fun energy coming from that! That’s ‘weirdness’ Those pictures of me playing with my fingers I was shooting with my photographer, Hong Jang Hyun He said ‘let’s take a look’ and it made me come up with that pose I like that one, it’s funny Q. Recommend a song to go with the exhibition I actually don’t want music to be playing I hope people just come, see and think for themselves Hong said we should go to New York because I fit the city atmosphere and all It was just a suggestion but that’s why I chose New York New York always feels cold and that’s what’s attractive Makes me more independent, mentally Q. Planning on shooting again in New York? No, next time… I want to take pictures in Mongolia I think I’ll become even more independent in Mongolia #ChoiSeungHyun Q. T.O.P and Choi Seung Hyun’s colors? I’d say black and white Both the truth and lies are there I’ve included this fake persona of mine Sometimes I get presented as more than I am Fancier than I am but really, there’s nothing to me and trying to come to my senses in all that confusion I think that’s the truth inside me and I tend to debate between the two identities That was very honest Q. What is ‘Big Bang’ to T.O.P? Black and white? Sounds good, doesn’t it? That was the fake me I hope to be like this all the time I don’t want to be too full of just words but I want to entertain people People who’ll see me and say ‘Hey, it’s T.O.P!’ That’s the kind of artist I always dream of becoming I’ll come back when everyone’s bored When there’s nothing to listen to on Melon I especially like Taeyang’s new song Let’s go listen to that This is T.O.P on #hashtag Goodbye
